Sobre este jogo

Recognized as one of the best licenses in adventure gaming and lauded by the international press, Sherlock Holmes is back with an investigation that is sure to be the most horrifying of the series. In this great new adventure, the famous detective chases against the most threatening serial killer England has ever known - Jack the Ripper.
It’s 1888, London, in the Whitechapel area, and a series of grisly crimes in the heart of the East End leave a gory trail of mutilated female bodies. The police struggle to pick up the scent as the bodies pile up and paranoia sweeps the city. Sherlock Holmes immerses himself in the dark, sordid alleyways of Whitechapel in order to follow the trail of the one that the press calls Jack the Ripper. During a terrifying investigation, Holmes will attempt to lift the veil of mystery that shrouds the motives and the face behind that horrific nickname.
Presented in full 3D, Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper offers players 2 different perspectives available at any moment in the game: a third-person view in the pure style of traditional point ’n’ click adventure games and a first-person view for close-up investigation. Players have the total freedom to choose either of the angles they wish or use them both to immerse themselves completely in this terrifying adventure.
  • Features Solve one of the greatest mysteries in the history of England and discover who is Jack the Ripper!
  • 2 mythic characters of 19th century England engage in a horrifying manhunt: the illustrious Sherlock Holmes and the terrifying Jack the Ripper.
  • Discover the hidden side of London and the sinister streets of Whitechapel, all faithfully recreated (e.g. public work house, hospitals, brothels, etc).
  • Switch between playing the role of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes or his trusted friend Doctor Watson.
  • Interact with more than 30 authentic characters that help you complete your investigation.
  • Use and combine more that 100 objects and collect hundreds of clues so you can finally uncover the real identity and motives of the perverted Jack the Ripper.
  • 2 points-of-view available at all times: gameplay in third-person or classic first-person point-of-view, a favorite for the enthusiasts of the series.
  • A progressive help system puts you back on track whenever you need assistance.

I would take Sherlock Holmes to figure out how to get this game to run. Running Windows 10, AMD A10 4.2Ghz, 16GB RAM, and Updated Drivers with a AMD R9 380. After 30 minutes of frustrating over solutions I realized one thing. The game should not be getting it to run, it should be the god damned game itself. I can't even return the game. There isnt even an option! I would love to play this game, I really would. But unfortunately with the trouble and lengths I have gone to to fix this piece of crapware I am just too tired to play it anymore! Screw this! Total negative. If the Devs or support want to talk to me to help me fix the problem, fine, but god damn it fix the god damned game so I can play it!

For those of you who will ask, I press new game, it goes to the "load screen" and then freezes. And hangs for minutes on end. I have only once gotten to a point where I can see a newspaper clipping, after that point, nothing. I am so done with it.

Well, as far as I experienced so far, buying this game is basically a gamble, since so many people are having technical issues with it. For me, it would not start at all. The hotfixes that are posted in the discussion section are not working. At first, when I asked the devs for help, they were like 'ehm yes, try hotfix pls'. After I told them that their game would not work for me even with hotfixes, utter silence.

I think it is a shame to sell a game, while knowing that it has massive technical issues, and ice cold posting a hotfix and expecting the paying customers to do their work for them.

I dont have another choice but giving a bad review. If you get this game for cheap, its still too expensive since I have absolutely no value for my money and I cannot get hands on the devs anymore, since they refuse to help me. For me thats pretty much fraud. My recommendation: buy something else.

As a big fan of Sherlock Holmes, and having played some of Frogware's previous games in the saga, I bought this game on a sale for just $2.49, and if you can get it at that price, I heavily recommend you do.

The adventure game focuses on the murders of low-class sex workers in Whitechapel, London, by an individual known by the public as "Jack the Ripper". Here, you control (alternatively) Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, in order to investigate these murders and catch the person responsable. You can play in either 3rd person, point-and-click manner, or in 1st person.

The game presents you with all sorts of puzzles that you must solve in order to progress through the immersive story. I've found many of these puzzles to be rather confusing and certainly difficult, and had to resort to using walkthroughs in order to solve them. And in one occasion, I had to draw an elypsis on a map, which despite having done so many times, the game wouldn't register as correct. So I had to go online an download a save file, or otherwise start all over again.

Despite the problems mentioned above, I greatly enjoyed my hours playing this game, and do recommend anyone who is a Sherlock Holmes or adventure games fan, to get it.

Para aqueles que gostam de jogos de investigação e puzzles todos da série do Sherlock Holmes são super legais. Os primeiros não tem gráficos maravilhosos, mas os casos e as histórias são envolventes. Adorooooo!!

As I have less, and less time to enjoy gaming as I grow older I am slowly gravitating towards a particular style of games. The common elements of these are:

1. They must have a competent story.
2. They cannot be very long, a 8-12 hours game works perfectly.
3. They need to steadily provide me with enjoyment, and feeling I am working towards a goal.
4. (optional) It is great to play games with my girlfriend, who enjoys mystery/puzzle games (we had lots of fun playing Professor Layton on a 3DS).

So if you are in a similar situation, then this game will be right for you. It is a bit clunky, and you can see budget limitations, but Sherlock Holmes games were never made to be mass-appeal AAA games. The story in this one is fascinating, and there are some great gameplay mechanics, especially those related to deductions and recreations of Jack the Reaper murders.

Nothing to say more. Grab it for 10EUR, or wait for Steam Sale to go even cheaper.

So far this game has been very fustrating because it will not save regularly. I once lost 30 minutes of progressing because the game would not allow me to save, so I just finial logged. A second time after 90 minutes of place the game lock my computer up while trying to use the map. I had made a save point after a key moment in the game but it was lost after I rebooted. This game's save game feature is buggy which suck the fun out of the play.

Muito bom. O jogo é simples, nada muito desafiador, não é perfeito. A história é legal, dá uma outra versão ao Jack Estripador, dizendo que foi Sherlock Holmes que resolveu. Alguns defeitos que quem compra deve estar preparado:
*Problema com Nvidia PhysX
*Problema de compatibilidade (aqui com o windows 8.1)
*Meio bugado...
*No começo vc anda um pouco sem saber o que fazer, até que pega o ritmo

Mesmo assim, vale muito a pena.

Bom jogo de aventura. Os painéis de dedução para mim são o ponto alto. Pra quem gosta de bancar o detetive, ele é bem lógico. Muita leitura em inglês, o que pode ser cansativo, dependendo do seu domínio do idioma. Puzzles inteligentes, mas não tantos quanto gostaria. Não estou contando achar determinados itens no cenário e combiná-los como puzzles.

O jogo é classificado como Teen (para idades acima de 13), mas eu diria que é para acima de 16.
A temática é pesada, o jogo é sombrio e tem uma grande quantidade de violência, textual e gráfica, e por ser totalmente orientada para violência contra mulheres, achei mais pesado ainda. Algumas partes passei direto. Embora não classificaria o jogo em si como misógino, a história certamente é. Me incomodou bastante esse aspecto. Por esse lado, não recomedo mesmo. Prossiga com cautela. Se esse tipo de conteúdo te ofende, melhor passar longe. Embora o jogo não glamourize essa violência, como a maioria parece que faz, não se afasta muito dela, e apresenta com bastante crueza.

Os gráficos são decentes, servem ao propósito do jogo. Não tem 'pixel hunting' como outros jogos de point and click parecem ter.

Eu particularmente vou me ater aos jogos do sherlock com temáticas de roubos e mistérios. :)

Este jogo é um erro na minha biblioteca, pois pensei que era um jogo de estratégia e que ele seria em português, mas este jogo está mais para o gênero terror (que pessoalmente eu detesto) e apenas o menu dele é em português, a dublagem e legenda são todas em inglês.

So BEFORE I TALK ABOUT THIS GAME even though I did want to enjoy it, I need to point out some big problems about it:
- Firstly, SAVE OFTEN AND SAVE PLENTY because the game has a bizarre bug that sometimes stops you saving and it has no autosave feature, even though this is a game from 2009.
- Secondly, when you have to draw on a map and it tells you to draw an Ellipse, just try to do this exactly - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/43253912/map-%2816-9%29.jpg - it is absurdly ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t precise and I'm gonna save you a lot of hassle.
- Thirdly, if you cannot load up the game for some reason, go to the PhysX folder inside the game's Steam folder and click on PhysX drivers. Then click "repair" and it should work. If not there is the Steam Community that gave me this advice.

Now, the actual review of the game. The world's most famous fictional detective versus the most infamous serial killer by name have finally come to blows in a strange blend between fantasy and reality in this game, and for what it's worth, the story is very well-composed concerning the killer's trail.
As Sherlock and Watson, you must hunt down the murderous Whitechapel Killer following his deadly clues, reliving the famous incidents that granted Whitechapel a most deadly reputation for the next 130 years. The voice acting could be better, though I do enjoy Watson's VA greatly as well as the odd incidental NPC wandering around.

The anatomical gathering of clues and deductions are very fun and remain more or less the same throughout the series with a great precision. Some of the puzzles are actually really neat, however there are some that are quite frankly badly conceived due to not being great puzzles.
And I'm not saying that because I'm stupid, I'm saying that because, there is a puzzle in the game that requires you to know about a specific war. That is really terrible, and any puzzle that requires outside knowledge, is a bad puzzle. That's the only example, but there are some other puzzles that are rather unclear as to what to do.

Thankfully, this series has gotten a lot better and I do recommend more people to play the much later instalments, especially The Testaments of Sherlock Holmes which is MUCH more well-played than this game frankly. So TL;DR

Pros:
- Excellent well-composed accuracy concerning the various details and theories of Jack the Ripper
- Anatomical deductions are pretty fun to do

Cons:
- The save bug which screwed me out of 6 hours of gameplay
- One or two puzzles are either outright unfair in requiring knowledge of certain things, or demand INCREDIBLY specific tasks.

Honestly, I want to give this game a Neutral rating as there's a lot to like but also a lot to dislike. If you REALLY like Sherlock Holmes, try to get it and see what happens. But for the love of God, save often.

Probably the most exciting Sherlock Holmes adventure ever made in video games.
Though the visuals aren't perfect and some puzzles may not be as clear as they should be, the whole picture of the game seems more than satisfying, considering there's a bunch of surprising story twists to discover, and the ambience here is remarkable. Moreover, the gameplay itself also has a couple of aces up its sleeve to get one's attention during the playthrough.
Gear up and bring two legends together while leading your own investigation of the case that terrified London in 1888. I strongly recommend you to.

As a few other of the Sherlock series games this one just doesn't want to start properly. It freezes after the 'New Game' button is clicked and fails after you minimize it. Useless!

Update!
I did find the solution:
#Discussions_QuoteBlock_Author
Open Find and search for 'PhysXLoader64.dll' , it should be in your C:\...\Nvidia etc. folder. Copy the file and paste it in your game folder, where the .exe is. If you have a 64-bit version of windows, try pasting it in the C:\Program Files folder, since that is the 64-bit folder and the Nvidia folder is in C:\Program Files (x86).
Have fun :)

Do you like classic Victorian era Sherlock Holmes?
Are you intrigued by the Whitechapel murders of 1888?
Then you will love this game!

Cleverly the game developers have meshed together these two iconic characters into one very plausible story. You play as Detective Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr John Watson either in first or third person perspective (depending on taste) as you investigate the five canonical victims of Jack the Ripper.

While this game suffers from PS2/Xbox era graphics (It looked dated even at its time of release) it does however still manage to conjure up a very detailed, authentic, and atmospheric London of the period.

Puzzles can be frustrating at times especially those that do not directly impact the murder cases themselves but overlook this fault and there is plenty to enjoy here.

I would recommend this game and I give it a solid 8/10

Take literature's most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and make a crossover with the most feared serial killer of the Victorian London era, Jack the Ripper. Sounds awesome, right? Well, I think so since I'm a geek. For the most part, this was an enjoyable adventure game even with its flaws.

+ Seriously, I've always thought this crossover would've been a great idea, glad to see it actually happened.
+ The deduction boards were probably the best puzzles, at least in my opinion; they were fun and required some thinking.
+ 1st person view addition, I already prefer this over 3rd person view for adventure games.
+ Good story, provides some suspense and thrills through out.
+ Not too challenging, and not exactly easy either. Progressive difficulty is done right for the most part.
+ Analyzing victims is lots of fun lol.
+ Dat ending.

- Errands, bleh. I'm fine with that in GTA, Skyrim, etc. But here, not exactly the most fun time.
- Graphics are crap for a 2009 game.
- Every now and then, you'll find grammatical errors in the subtitles. It annoys me.
- Voice acting isn't exactly the greatest.
- Some puzzles are dumb; for example, why does Sherlock need a "pivot" and a stick to move a barrel? Is he weak? lol.
- Some puzzles are annoying when it comes to registering your solution, such as the one where you narrow down Jack's "comfort zone" and the final deduction.

If you're a fan of Sherlock, or interested in Jack the Ripper case, I recommend this. Heck, if you love mysteries, or enjoy solid adventure games, then get this game.

I think out of all the Sherlock Holmes games this had the darkest theme and story, the puzzles range from medium to a bit hard, but this is nowhere near as hard as awakening or Arsene Lupin VS Sherlock Holmes (Lupin is in my avatar :D) if you want a nice game where you are guessing all the way through who the killer is with decent puzzles this is the game for you, the characters are a bit blend compared to the other games but its still a must play for holmes fans

Without a doubt Frogwares' work is amazing. They unite two good things at least: games and old books. I love their work SO much.
Sherlock versus Jack, the Ripper is fanciful, but the game is good. Some details are not so good as in "Crimes and Punishments" because I believe C&P was made after S. vs J., but still is interesting and nice.
Sometimes, if you are not aware of the previous dialogues or even if you are aware, you kinda don't know where to go or who to look for. It kinda misses a "goal" board, "what to do next" at certain parts, specially at Whitechapel area. You kinda have to interact with a lot of people or try to enter in a lot of places until you find your goal exactly. But it's just a minor thing.
When you gather enough information to discover Jack's identity, it becomes even more fun.
