  • Summary: I wanted to like this game. I liked the format but the graphics were fuzzy and items to locate most were very small or not clear enough to tell what it was. Directions for game were not clear.

  • Summary: I didn't like all the HdO games but I thought I'll give it another go this time since the title looked interesting. To my horror, another awful game. HdO games have interesting great concepts and themes but they always screw up the execution of their games. The graphics are quite ok in this game but the objects are as usual blurry or miniscule. You got to have a really gigantic screen to find the items, otherwise it's just painful for the eyes to find them.

  • Summary: I thought I'd give this game a shot (despite the poor reviews) and boy did it not disappoint. You start out as a newspaperman, and go through the normal HoG routine (gather stuff so he can leave, use a map to go places, etc.) but the scenes are so poorly done it's almost unreal. Everything is so dark and blurry it's hard to make anything out. And the dialogue? What there is of it doesn't make any sense. Like a ten year old wrote it.

  • Summary: I just finished the demo, and I did like the game. It's different, and not just the story; it makes you think a bit more than most games. I like the graphics, too. The music is quite boring. Didn't need a hint so far, so the 9 hints haven't been a problem. The only difficulty I had was to assemble the camera, that took me quite a while to figure out. And of course I didn't remember the number I was asked for by the policeman, but that turned out to be no real problem.

  • Summary: The graphics are rather primitive and cumbersome. The storyline is silly given the seriousness of the actual events. Wish I could give it ½ a star.

Do not get this game!

  • Conclusion: I Bought this game thinking I would have many hours of fun on it. It was completed in just over an hour when I was just getting into it. There was no warning it was going to end. Music is repetitive, but saying that, you don't get to hear it for long!! Save your money to buy something more worthwhile. Disappointing.

"Ich schnippel nun mal gerne an einer Gebärmutter rum!"

  • Summary: Och nö... schon wieder ein Adventure. Dabei wollte ich doch mal wirklich etwas erwachsenes spielen, wie ähm... den Kochbuch-Simulator oder das Abstaub-Strategiespiel. Doch da ich mir nun schon mal total zufällig "Sherlock Holmes jagt Jack the Ripper" bei Amazon für knapp 7 Euro gekauft habe, muss ich dieses Adventure wohl spielen. Hilft ja nichts... Die Kreideleiche besitzt gar kein Fleisch Im düsteren Stadtteil Whitechapel findet eine Reihe grausamer Verbrechen statt.

  • Pros: Viele Rätsel, ich durfte rumschlitzen, Story - Spannung am Ende, Vertonung, Steuerung
  • Cons: leichte Storys, etwas eintönig, viel Bla Bla

Sherlock Holmes auf den Spuren Jack the Rippers

  • Summary: "The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes, das ist der PC-Klassiker mit Sherlock Holmes. Ich habe dieses fantastische Adventure das erste Mal gespielt, als ich im fünften oder sechsten Schuljahr war und wurde direkt ein Sherlock-Fan. Anschließend habe ich alles gelesen, was die Stadtbücherei an Sherlock-Holmes-Romanen hatte. So viel zum Thema, dass Computerspiele Kinder immer vom Lesen abhalten. Es muss nicht immer so sein.
  • Pros: Relativ nah an der Realität, schöne Atmosphäre, gute Grafik, keine technischen Probleme
  • Cons: Langweilige "Rätsel", teils nervige Bewegungen der Figuren, wenig Aktionsmöglichkeiten
