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.

I'd love to give this game a glowing review because it was great for me, but it is apparent from reading the forums that many people have issues running this game. For this reason, I'll supply my specs, though I cannot certify that this will make the game run for you:
Win 7 64 bit
Radeon HD 7770
AMD quad core 2.94 ghz

On with the game,

It's an adventure game with a few twists.
First off, you can operate the game from two different perspectives: Third-person for the old school point and click feel, and first person, which I prefer.
Besides the collecting items, you will have the opportunity to examine crime scenes and fill out some diagrams that include the clues you've gathered. The game won't let you fail these. Though at first thought that might seem lazy, the game is pretty much packed with detail and it's hard to see the devs making branching paths given the amount of attention and longevity of the game. Along the same lines the game also won't let you leave certain areas without collecting all the items.
There are many texts to read in this game and I would say that it is important to read them, as most do divulge important information that is pertinent to your case.

The voice acting, aside from one character who is thankfully absent for most of the game, is top notch. You can tell that, even though there was a budget as far as recording goes, the devs spared no expense for finding actors who wanted to portrey their roles well.
The music is fitting and includes some great pieces from the Romantic era including one of my personal favs, Schubert's Trio in Eb.

While the puzzles can be hit or miss, they mostly hit. They make sense and you should feel like you understand what the game wants from you, though there is one puzzle that involves a map that is somewhat obtuse given to a problem with widescreen resolutions, but it is do-able without much fussing about.

Though the graphics aren't the best by today's standards they do the job. The environments are well done and I felt very immersed in the places the game put me in. Hookers, drunks and theives around every corner.

All of these things came together for a perfect storm of presentation. Nothing felt out of place and I was enthralled with this title from beginning to end.

If you're looking for an adventure title that'll suck you in you should definitely give this title a go, though you should do your research to figure out if it'll run for you.

This was one of the earliest Sherlock Holmes games in development. Now it may not be a great story as opposed to other original stories by the source material, but it was good nonetheless. I enjoyed the puzzles as well as the means to discover the mysteries. Strangely enough, what turned me off initially was the first person view but it grew on me.

i would love to write a positive and informative review.
sadly I can't.
I didn't even get to the main menu, it just keeps crashing.
I tried all fixes that are suggested in the forums and more.
so very, very sad.

This is a pretty good adventure game with some major flaws.
First, the 3D engine is just hideous. The lighting looks awful and the characters cast no shadows - that looks really bad especially at night. I don't think that was acceptable even in 2009.
Second, some mini games are incredibly confusing. It wouldn't hurt to give us some instructions, you know?
However the investigation is a lot of fun, dialogues are well written and the story overall is pretty interesting.
