Mystery Murders: Jack the Ripper
"Great Detective Novel"
Excellent mystery . . . . .what makes it interesting is you have to put all the pieces together, the graphics, dark and eerie , a great "whodunit". The more the game creeps the more I like it. This is the real deal. "Yo!"

Could be so good ... What a pity!
Starts perfect: London, 1888, "Autumn of Terror" ... a girl has had nightmares (or visions?) with murders and ... with the murderer! She takes laudanum to sleep!
Excellent story, marvelous graphics, amazing sound, gorgeous locations, perfect London-fog atmosphere (including the HOS - with proper objects).
The problem lies in the development of the game: HOS very very easy, absurdly easy and highly well known mini games, an endless coming and going to the same places (have map, but can only be used when it finishes what you have to do)...that despite the very interesting story, done with so much care ... the game itself becomes very repetitive, ... I got tired and gave up.
Worth the free trial just to see the excellent quality of the story and graphics ... and to imagine how much this game could be great !

Jack the Ripper
At first it held my interest but it did not last. It is too automated. You have no opportunity to select where you want to go next, which a lot of hidden object games allow. On top of that, you see the same places over and over again. It is just to repetitive and is therefore not challenging. Out of all the games I have played, this one is near the bottom of my list. That list is not my favorites list either. I would not recommend this one.

I liked the fact that you play three different characters that show different sides of the story. However, the female character became very much annoying. The puzzles are not challenging at all.

More on the boring side
Didnt care for this game very much.
It was more boring than entertaining.
The graphics were good.
The concept of having to "clear" the womans vision while she sleeps was weird. There was a red tint in those scenes in her vision which made it somewhat more difficult to see what I was doing where I was going. The rest of the game didnt seem fun to me either.
HOS seens were easy, although some of the items were so hard to find I finally had to use the hint. It is not often for me to resort to using a hint in HOS.
Puzzles were also easy, but didnt like them much. There were many that were very similar to other puzzles in game.

Not worth the 7$
Luckily, I purchase this game during a sale. It was horrible! The graphics are grainy, the challenge is NONE and the story is even worse. I found it to be so annoying, I didn't even finish the first scene.

Jack the Ripper Story Over Done
Usually have respect for Game Developers. Was this one taken off the back shelf? Clairvoyant taking her "Laudanum" to help her sleep put me immediately on edge. Right from the start, scenes compiled to shock rather than flow within the game are a sheer waste of talent and time--theirs and mine. BFG should return this back to the shelf or offer a $.99 Game Category.

Proved to be far too boring to play overall.

Didn't make it through 10 minutes of this game
Maybe I'm crabby but this game irked me. The HOS scenes were a weird mixture of too easy AND too hard, which usually means (for me) that the rest of the game will go the same way.
I didn't like the graphics and the intermittent woman-screams were unsettling and annoying.
