  1. If you have ever had an interest in Sherlock, Jack the Ripper or detective stories in general then this is a solid game with some great puzzles that will entertain for days.

    In spite of some mediocre voice acting, a bit of wooden animation and a strangely out of character climax, Sherlock Holmes Versus Jack the Ripper is a fascinating re-imagining of the Whitechapel murders.
  3. Using logic and brainpower to deduce the facts is great fun, and the game is surprisingly entertaining.
  4. Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper is an excellent game for those who like to solve a wide range of different puzzles.
  5. With its truly melon tweaking puzzles and the real life references to the acts and clues that were found during the real life investigation into the Jack the Ripper murders, Sherlock Holmes manages to cross from fictional to factual in a believable way.

In the beginning and for certain puzzles you may want to consult a walk-through as Whitechapel can be confusing when dark. I would say play it if you like Sherlock Holmes/are interested in Jack the Ripper as the game gives good descriptions of the crimes. Full Review »

It's boring, it's wooden, it's just flat out awful. Awful graphics, awful voice acting, and the game is extremely hard. No, not the puzzles, the navigating! It feels like you're in a never-ending labyrinth of cobbled streets. While it may explain the ripper killings well, they should've just made a fictional crime. Don't buy this game! Full Review »
