O tej grze

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.

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.

WARNING NVIDIA USERS: The game might get stuck on the first loading screen the first time you start playing the game. If this happens, check the forum for fix. Worked for me.

Very good game for it's time and on level with the rest of the good part of this series.
The voice actors and music are the same as in previous games; decent to good, nothing terrible in voice acting but a few random volume/quality changed from sentence to sentence some times.

The story follows Sherlock Holmes as he investigates the brutal murders of some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s in Whatechapel, London. The game is slightly less gory and bloody than other games in the series, mostly because the murder victms you inspect are drawings and dolls, and not 3d-models, which gives a completely different feel; but then again you may not want to see models of women with their guts and organs ripped out and face cut open, so a pretty good design choice. Still not a game safe for children.

The game visits both new places and a few places known from other game in the series. The puzzles still give no clues about how they are to be solved, which can be frustrating. There is no failure state in this game, so no real reason to save often (thought there is no autosave, so do save if you plan to closing the game), and the game never crashed for me.

The game does not rely as heavily on document-reading as the previous ones and there's no quiz or direct minor questions asked to chekc if you're paying attention. You may have to read up to solve a few of the puzzles though.

Sherlock Holmes Vs Jack The Ripper * 7/10

If "The Awakened" was the most disturbing and dark chapter of the saga I have to say this one is the most raw chapter because of the crimes we're called to investigate: Jack the Ripper's victims.

This chapter is kind of chilling if compared to the previous ones and poor Dr Watson's stomach or patience is often tested. At a certain point even Sherlock Holmes remains speechless when confronting the last victim corpse. Nothing excessively gruesome is being shown but it's all about Jack the Ripper, a formidable figure of whom nobody knows or saw anything for sure and you must investigate deeply to find the way to the truth behind his identity and nature.
Just like the previous chapter this is a point'n'click adventure, originally designed in 1st person View, but now presented with the possibility to play in 3rd person view and obviously with a remastered Graphic. The interface is almost the same as in previous titles but there's few very important innovations in this chapter's gameplay which have quickly become the key moments that best represent a game dedicated to Holmes and Watson adventures: The deduction schemes, reconstructions and experiments. The best inno are simple moments that require you to order your ideas and clues, link them and choose the right conclusions to better understand the next direction for your investigations. Reconstructions involve both Holmes and Watson trying to replicate the murder after a accurate analysis of the crime scene and the corpse. Experiments are exactly what the name says, simulation of situations or reactions to determine the murder weapon or other particular conditions or clues. These innovations are implemented in the classic gameplays elements so there are dialogues, riddles and puzzles, and errands... maybe a bit too many errands, compared to the previous chapters, but I liked the gameplay so much that I simply didn't mind too much.
They didn't waste too much effort in music as there are still the classic melodies from the previous chapters and one or two new tracks, but still they fit as they rarely pretend to stand in the gameplay unless the cutscene requires it to better represent the events.
The game takes place once again in London but this time we won't see any of the great marvelous buildings so typical of the city, but we'll be wandering back and forth in Whitechapel, the most squallid neighbourhood which is well represented as it's full of life with people and workers wandering on the roads, beggars, streetwalkers (seems like pro stitutes is a censored word... -.-), ill people and whatever. The Remastered engine shows nicely the alleys we'll be visiting (even though it has some heavy loads moments due to and excessive abuse of effects on water and reflections) but we won't be able to admire any particular example of level design except for some occasional office or internal ambients.

+++PROs+++
  • GAMEPLAY. The gameplay always show great interesting riddles and puzzles, but now has been seriously improved with some new mechanics such as the deductions schemes, reconstructions and experiments, and these sections best reflect and represent a Sherlock Holmes adventure.
  • STORY. Well this chapter is about chasing a mysterious figure the likes of Jack the Ripper and while I can't say nothing about it because spoilers I can say that your investigations will show a side of London you haven't seen before: Poverty, prostitution, disease, haunted Jewish community and so on.
  • ENGINE. The original engine has been remastered and improved and even though it hasn't improved any models it has improved textures and other details such as water reflections.
---CONs---
  • WHAT'S NEXT? Yes, the whole game is guided, it tells you where to go next, who should we speak next and this is fine. The proble is in certain moments where you're trying to reconstruct scenes or examining clues and you need to perform a particular action but there's no explanation about it (and I'm not talking about riddles and puzzles but proper sections or mechanics which are not properly explained or requires a millimetric precision - see maps or Watson with the lantern)
  • HEAVY ENGINE. Well, honestly I've been able to walk around without any issue but the water and reflection effects that are so much improved are almost never seen and still you can feel them as when you're near one of the couple of the barrels in the whole game the frame rate will drastically drop. And no, my video card isn't outdated...

Not very fun. Fetch quest after fetch quest after fetch quest.

+ Interesting concept
+ When you get to work with the ripper killings, it's really interesting
- Mostly just fetch quests
- Doesn't stream very well for some bizarre reason, constantly soft-crashing and needing to be reinitialized
- Game crashes unless you do some work around stuff

Though a step up from some of the earlier SH games I played, it just isn't very fun at all.

This game might be more of a detective game than a horror game, but with how bad the 7th victim was, it could definitely pass as one. One puzzle left me stuck for over 30 minutes, but it was still fun and challenges. And they came up with a clever way to keep the ending historically accutate.

Totalna kiszka. Zapowiada się nieźle, ale fabuła ciągnie się jak melasa, zagadki robią coraz mniej logiczne, a scenariusz coraz głupszy. W dodatku całość toczy się w garstce lokacji po których biegamy w kółko jak kot z pęcherzem. Wisienką na torcie jest zepsuty system zapisu, który raz działą, a raz nie. Radzę więc często zapisywać grę. Można przejść, ale to chyba najsłabsza gra z serii. Na plus fakt, że wiele nielogicznych zagadek można przejść "na pałę".

Pierwszorzędna przygodówka, przeznaczona dla fanów intensywnego myślenia. Zainteresował mnie tytuł, pojedynek dwóch legend. W grze wcielamy się w Sherlocka, który ma do „pokonania” nieuchwytnego przeciwnika. Musimy logicznie kojarzyć fakty, oglądać miejsca zbrodni czy też dokonywać oględzin ofiar. Fabuła licznie nawiązuje do sprawy Kuby rozpruwacza oraz wszystkich miejsc gdzie działa się akcja. Grafika jak na datę wydania gry pozostawia trochę do życzenia. Fabuła jest dosyć wciągająca i przybiera ciekawy obrót sprawy, wliczając w to zakończenie.

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
