Expert Review

4 April 2005
  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: The year is 1901 and a maniac is terrorizing the citizens of New York City. With each killing, new clues emerge, clues that point to the return of Jack the Ripper.

Jack the Ripper by gatorlaw

31 May 2004
  • Excerpt: Jack the Ripper If a game developer is seeking a riveting mystery scenario, real life supplies some of the best. And without a doubt, one of the greatest historical who-done-its of all times, would be the macabre case of Jack the Ripper. This elusive killer has been the focal point of innumerable books, articles, and web sites - that dig deep into “Ripper theory”. There have also been at least two prior adventure games crafted around the Ripper mystique and story.

  • Excerpt: I started my last review by pointing out that some games just shouldn’t be imported. Maybe it’s the best-selling game of all time in Equatorial Guinea, but that doesn’t mean it’s any good, or that it can compete with new releases from major development houses. Blade & Sword , an import from China, would have been a bad game five years ago, and now I have Jack the Ripper , the latest adventure from French developer Galilea.

  • Conclusion: GameSpot’s user traffic rankings indicate that Jack the Ripper has garnered more attention on their website than any adventure game in years -- which is a true shame. This sort of linear, uninteresting, soulless adventure is emphatically best left in the past, and I hold out hope that we will see some games in the near future with the vibrant life and energy that makes an adventure game, with a compelling and well-developed story, with challenging and inviting...

  • Excerpt: During the last few years of the nineteenth century a number of prostitutes were murdered in London. What made these killings especially mysterious was the grotesque nature, and the obviously excellent anatomical knowledge the killer possessed. These poor women were butchered in ways almost unimaginable, and even to this date the case hasn’t been solved – although many have tried.

Sherlock Holmes jagt Jack the Ripper

21 December 2012
  • Conclusion: "Sherlock Holmes jagt Jack the Ripper" ist ein gutes Adventure für alle alt eingesessenen Adventure-Spieler da draussen. Die Atmosphäre ist gut gestaltet, auch wenn das Spiel von der technischen Seite her sehr simpel aufgestellt wurde. Dazu merkt man dass das Spiel alles andere als sauber ist (Pc-Portation, Budget-Einsparung).

Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper

10 September 2010
  • Summary: Die Story rund um Jack The Ripper ist immer für ein gruseliges Spielchen gut. Zwar bietet "Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper" im Vergleich zu den etlichen anderen Wimmelbild-Spielen, die momentan so den Markt überfluten, nicht viel Neues. Die düstere Präsentation und die spannende Geschichte sorgen aber dafür, dass Adventure-Fans durchaus zufrieden sein werden.
