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.
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.
Summary: "Sherlock Holmes jagt Jack the Ripper" ist mein inzwischen vierter Teil der Reihe, den ich spiele und ich muss sagen bisher gefaellt er mir am besten. Endlich muss man mal Schlussfolgerungen ziehen, die wirklich Sinn machen und durch das bilden einer Indiz-Kette ist auch alles logisch miteinander verbunden. Das einzige, was mich hin und wieder ein bisschen nervt ist das rumlaufen in Whitechapel, was aber durch die Ego-Perspektive erleichtert wird.
Summary: Das Leben im Londoner Stadtteil Whitechapel ist nicht unbedingt ein leichtes. Tagelöhner, Prostituierte und andere verzweifelte Seelen fristen im trüben Grau des Armutbezirkes ihr Dasein und müssen sich, als ob das noch nicht genug wäre, im mittlerweile fünften "Sherlock Holmes"-Adventure auch noch mit aufkeimenden religiösen Konflikten innerhalb Whitechapels und einer seltsamen Mordserie, die insbesondere die Damen des "horizontalen Gewerbes" (wie es auch treffend im...
