Summary: I'm really shocked that this game got such rave reviews. I found it very frustrating. First, it was kinda buggy. The curser was a little slow to change when you moused over the hot spots, so you had to go very slow. There were way more HOG scenes than I like in my games, but that's a personal preference. My main gripe was that the things you needed to do weren't intuitive. For example, I come upon a cash register.
Summary: I loved the sinister quality to this game. The singing barber who kills people in his barber chair and the women down the street who sells meat pies with suspect ingredients. Loved how the cut scenes were sung. The story takes place in old England and the lead inspector offers sometimes amusing comments and encouragement throughout the game. The map is how you travel from one location to another.. and there are many.

Yes, i dont finish this game...i dont like to have .headache...... but...nice grafics, wonderfull excellent game....
Summary: Just finished the game and WOW, I didn't want it to end!! Graphics were wonderful and story superb. I love it when a game lets you know you're finished in a scene - saves a lot of clicking around and scratching your head in frustration. I hate resorting to walkthroughs and this game saved me the trouble, except for a couple of the puzzles.
Summary: Excellent! Beautiful graphics & artwork. Music is just wonderful - I'm sure it was originally written for this game and it genuinely felt like I was watching the movie on the big screen - relevant, dramatic & captivating. I love the sound, effects & animation - all were so splendidly done. Obviously the developers can't create a story exactly like the stage musical/movie and so they manipulated the story a bit but I still found it brilliant! Gameplay was so interesting.
Summary: This is a combination hidden-object and adventure game, following the story of Sweeny Todd. This is a very satisfying game. The artwork for the game is gorgeous- one travels all over London in the dark and gloom of night. It creates a decidedly spooky atmosphere, with gorgeous scenes. The gameplay involves travelling through a series of locations, point and click adventuring, and solving hidden object scenes to gain objects necessary to solve puzzles.
Summary: Struggled throughout the game even with the help of the guide in the collectors edition. The storyline was ok, but there was continuous flickering and flashing throughout the game, I thought it was going to crash at any given time. The length of the game of good. Skipped most of the puzzles. Needed dictionary because not familiar with names of items. At least one item in each area was so hard to find that had to use a hint.
Summary: What a fantastic game! I put it up there with Briar Rose and Hidden Expeditions: Devil's Triangle as being about the most fun. Graphics, music, sounds, the Cockney bobby...all appropriate and added to the sleazy atmosphere. Not only do I think most HOGs should have a Skip Puzzle button or whatever, they should have something similar to the map; it made going from one place to another a cinch, and it also clued you in as to whether you had more clues to uncover by staying...
