Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game I loved this game. It's pretty much a straight up HOG which is what I like. The graphics are great. I mute the sound & skip the story so I can't comment on either. The game wasn't short in length but could have been longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ripper Hidden Object Game! HO scene lovers rejoice! This game is a wonderful combination of hard to find, challenging hidden object scenes, some relatively easy puzzles and one of the most intriguing mysteries of all time. I found it very engrossing and was glad the the objects were not all that easy. Some in fact were very tiny. But there are badges to collect that help you in times of trouble. There is also a morphing mist as well as a gentle sparkle that will sometimes show where an object is without having to use a hint. Don't look for super graphics or overwhelming music. This game depends more on its foggy atmosphere to convey the East End of London during the time these horrendous murders took place. It is not scary; the player follows McNaughton And Galton around as they find clues. You collect evidence but it is not used in other scenes; rather all is brought together at the end when you get to chose the best suspect. I thoroughly enjoyed this game and it gets top rating for hidden object lovers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "Cut" Above the Others I've always been interested in the Ripper case, and this game seems to stick to the facts. It was very well done. It was both fun and informative.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from interesting review of historical evidence associated with Jack the Ripper in this historical hidden object game, you join Professor Francis Galton and Sir Melville Magnaghten as they seek to identify London’s infamous Jack the Ripper. you help collect and review evidence and use new (at the time) forensic techniques such as fingerprinting and blood tests. graphics: lovely. detailed. time period-appropriate items. the scenes were very well designed and nicely rendered, no junk piles anywhere, just lots of optical illusions so it was surprisingly difficult to find some of the items on the lists. in addition to the hidden objects, each scene had a policeman's badge hidden in it, which adds a "clue" (hint) to your hint meter, and five fingerprints, each of which gives you extra time (30 seconds?), although i may be misremembering the precise time per found fingerprint. static cutscene scripts provide context, review the evidence and develop the story. music and sound effects: music was appropriately delicate and melancholy and sound effects were appropriate as well. but overall, the audio aspect of this game was always in the background, quiet and very un-intrusive. no voiceovers. storyline: no ghosts, no gore and for the most part, no movement. this game takes place in London’s East End in 1889. it is a static game that presents and reviews the historical evidence for each of five men suspected of being London's infamous Jack the Ripper. my interaction: one hour demo, untimed rookie mode (this game also has a timed detective mode). fans of history or of hidden object games will enjoy this game since it's a straight HO with a few very easy puzzles thrown in for variety.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This week's winning game voted on Facebook Thoroughly enjoyed this Hidden Object Game. It is a straight HOG with a few puzzles thrown in (the same ones repeated). You do revisit scenes and sometimes you have to find the same items as previously but none of that ever bothers me in a game. I've played it right through on relaxed mode and I'm looking forward to replaying it in timed mode. I'm really not sure what the reasoning is behind having to find all of the fingerprints as you don't seem to benefit from doing this - although this added extra bit of play is always a bonus for me anyway. It doesn't tell you, and I didn't realise until half way through the game, that there was something else you could look for, for which you did earn extra hints if needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from INTERESTING GAME Well, I had a sick day off and loved it~! This game took me 6 hours, and cooked soup,etc. as I played. I really enjoyed it, the music was just right for the game. This was really a great game for HOG players. And some easy puzzles too. Love history and this really stuck to the facts about Jack the Ripper. So glad I didn't live back in those days~ dark and cold, some hidden objects were very hard to find, but lots of hints if you need them. I do have a small lap top and kinda blind too~ that might have contributed too! I have to play this game again, at the ending you will see why~! hehehe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Non-spooky fun If you're not crazy about horror games, you'll like this murder mystery, which doesn't dwell on the more gruesome details surrounding the murders. Instead, you're invited to review the evidence against five men who are suspected of the crimes. Graphics are mostly good. Objects are period-appropriate (no cell phones in Victorian London). You have a choice between timed and relaxed mode. It's straight-up HOG - no gathering of objects to unlock scenes - with a few mini-games interspersed. You can skip the mini-games. The game was evidently written by a British writer, so while the English is correct, Americans might be occasionally stumped by a British term for an object. Some objects are superimposed over others, so you sometimes have to be precise with clicking or click twice to find an object.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Finding Jack the Ripper There are several games on the BF site relating to Jack the Ripper. They are all better than this one. The graphics are horrible. Dark and dreary. Don't know about sound as I had it muted. HOGs were everywhere. That's all this game is. Go from one location to another and do an HOG. Impossible to find many of the items listed because the the scene was, again, very dark brown. The mini games were the only saving grace of this game. Fun and innovative. This game has no appeal as a mystery or a detective story or anything, really. It has no "umph". No "meat". It just "is". Very sad and disappointing considering the topic. Obviously, this is not a purchase for me, nor will I recommend it because anyone who would go to play it based on my recommendation would only be wasting their precious time and I don't want to be responsible for that. If you are looking for a good mystery regarding Jack the Ripper, I'm sure there is one somewhere on the massive BF site.
