WHY DO PROGRAMMERS HATE OLD PEOPLE?

Summary: I was playing this game and happy as a pig in pooh. All of a sudden, for some unknown and stupid reason, the producers of this game had to throw in a difficult eye-hand coordination "challenge." If I were playing it on PC, I could probably do it. On the Xbox it is so difficult I may not be able to finish the game. The puzzle? There is a "magnetic" box. You have to simultaneously move two objects through a narrow field without touching the wall or obstacles.
Summary: I Saw This Game At Family Video And Thought Id Try It Out. I Must Say That This Game Just Plain Sucks. I Could've Made A Better One. It Looks Like The Creators Spent Zero Time Makin It. Graphics Are Horrible, Controls Are Horrible, Characters Are Horrible And The Rating? Honestly If Someone Made A Game Bout Jack The Ripper It Certaintly Wouldn't Be Rated Teen. It'd Be Mature And I'm Sure Very Gruesome.
Summary: This is not your usual XBox 360 game. It's slow, more for younger kids or some adults unfamiliar with XBox. The puzzles were entertaining and time flies when you play the game. My husband and I found ourselves play it until 1am sometimes. I bought this for my husband for Christmas although he is an avid XBox player he enjoyed playing an intellectual game with me (because I can usually never keep up).
Summary: This game is not for those who just want to smash things. It is, like Sherlock Holmes, a game of deductions and investigations. It's true, Sherlock Holmes does not magically morph into an action hero, and cars are not transported to 1880s London for your pleasure, nor are there out-and-out gunfights, but yet this game fails to disappoint all the same. An intricately created world with a rich set of characters. If you don't like the genre, don't buy the game!
Summary: This game is interesting and entertaining, but with a guide I completed it in less than 24 hours. It would be easy to drag it out as some of the puzzles are pretty hard to figure out, and can be frustrating without outside help. Sherlock's investigative process is very data-driven, and you need to create timelines and deduction boards using the data you've collected. Using a guide, I was able to complete the game and get all achievements in a day.
Summary: i have never played a game like this before on a console. its very slow and you slowly piece together the clues and evidence and find out who jack the ripper is. the investigation was fantastic! i loved this game and will be buying more of this series.
Summary: I love Sherlock Holmes, but I do not like the voice chosen to portray him. Neither do I care for the script. There is a lot the character says that I seriously doubt Holmes would say. Holmes never was much of a talker, as Watson has pointed out in many adventures. I also find the camera angles weird to control. I have spent way too much time trying to figure out what the heck i am missing so I can continue to the next piece of the game.
