    Clumsy gameplay, bad graphics... feels like a game from a decade ago. Not worth the money I paid for it. I have seen ipad games with better graphics than this. Seriously.

  1. Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper is a good graphic adventure, full of funny gameplay Sadly, the technical aspect is poor and feels some 10 years old, but if you can live with that, a good storytelling and plenty of exploration and problem solving will keep you busy.
  2. The game is okay for adventure fans but it suffers from bad visuals and clunky controls.

    It's just not good enough and, crucially, makes Holmes and Watson do things they just wouldn't do in the books. Which is, at the end of the day, the biggest flaw. [Apr 2010, p.89]
