Games for Anglophiles | Sherlock Holmes versus Jack The Ripper

I actually bought this game on Friday. When I saw the game, I just had to have it! Strategy games are the only type that actually interest me. Plus, I had a discount, so the game only cost me ’round £1.50! What a bargain!

1888, London, district of Whitechapel. A series of particularly horrible murders takes place in this district of the East End of London where atrociously mutilated prostitutes’ bodies are found. The police are unable to find a serious lead and the murders increase creating a real psychosis. Sherlock Holmes starts looking for clues in the dark and sinister alleys of Whitechapel in order to follow the macabre trail of the one the press now calls Jack the Ripper. During a frightening adventure, Sherlock Holmes will try to bring out the true identity and the motives of the one who hides behind this scary alias.
Fully 3D rendered, Sherlock Holmes versus Jack The Ripper offer players two different views that are accessible at any time: a third-person view in the purest style used in point ‘n’ click adventure games, as well as a first-person view. The player will be free to play in one or the other modes or even combine them for greater immersion into this terrifying adventure.
Use an original crime scene reconstitution system that allows you to test theories during your progression in the investigation to follow the bloody trail of the terrifying serial killer.

 I am really liking it so far. I’m not much of a gamer, but I love tried to deduce cases based on evidence gathered… or should I say data? Alas, let me tell you (or Watson, rather): The game is afoot!
