  1. Like a bad movie you have to see through to the end, Jack the Ripper will keep you in your seat right up to the disappointing conclusion.
  2. I honestly do wish the developers spent more time polishing the game, because the game is buggy at times, and could’ve used some more animations, but beyond that I really liked the atmosphere, and even started caring a bit for some of the characters.

    The story is intriguing and engaging. While more puzzles would be expected for games of this style, there are enough to make it a game and the plot is enough to push you through the tale.

    The few puzzles in the game are quite easy, and most experienced gamers will barely even be aware of them.

    This is a disappointingly average expansion and a missed out opportunity overall. The story is hardly interesting and barely fleshed out. TheThis is a disappointingly average expansion and a missed out opportunity overall. The story is hardly interesting and barely fleshed out. The only new mechanic introduced is a fear system in which evil using a mix of hallucinogenic bombs, spikes, and the Indian version of iron knuckles to scare enemies into running away.There are "new"activities that are just reskins of the ones present in the main game. Gameplay is still fun but,strangely enough I experienced more glitches than in the main campaign. The screen would temporarily freeze while driving a coach and activities would reset for no reason at all. In the end I can't recommend this at its full asking price and give it a five out of ten. It's not terrible but it's not great. Full Review »
