I personally didn't enjoy this game very much. This one has the most confusing jumping around storyline, and the fact that it jumps around so much i lost interest in the storyline i was trying to pay attention and understand. Has great graphics though and i did enjoy the hidden object scenes. I did however complete the game and did the bonus chapter at the end but i did skip all the chat logs with the story line for most of the game. This storyline was just all over the place. I think if it would of stayed with the detective on a murder case in one time frame but different areas of the city etc.... i think we might of had a great game.
I felt like I walked in the middle of something and wasn't told where or what I was looking for. Very confusing game.

I only played the hour trial but found myself intrigued. I would recommend this one.

I have chemo brain and am using games to improve my mind. This games is confusing because we don't have a map. When I have to go to another location, I have to click the hint button. This slows down the game and makes the game frustrating.

I am surprised by the modest reviews for this game. I thought it was excellent in many respects. I loved switching time periods, the mystery, the tasks and puzzles. There was even some challenge. I especially liked the bonus chapter which added an unexpected twist I did not see coming.

I needed the hint button often in this game. There are great scenes and some good mini-games but it's confusing. Half the time I didn't know how to use my inventory items. Storyline was strange, and kind of silly. Could have been a lot better game.

I guess I'm odd man out on the reviews because I thought this had an intriguing, unusual storyline. I can't give you any hints because that would be a spoiler, but I did love it. It kept me interested all the way through, and the bonus was really a surprise. It is on the dark side, involving a serial killer playing head games with a psychic detective, but I've seen darker and bloodier, so take that for what it's worth. Give the demo a try, and if you like it, go for it, because I really like the way the story came together at the end.
Great graphics, unusual story and quite unique as you traveled back and forth in time to survey different crime scenes tying together the past and future. The ho scenes were clean and for the most part, items could easily be found. The challenge was to remember what location, or to uncover a new one to use an item you acquired along the way. There were several locations but not so many you got lost and Information provided by the main character was usually enough to indicate where you might need to go next and where you were in the overall investigation, but if stuck the hint system is very helpful. I really enjoyed playing this game and will no doubt play again to better my achievement scores.
Somewhat challenging game based loosely around Jack the Ripper murders and similar murders in current day. Kept me wanting to return to it. Need to be eagle eyed for some of the items which may appear behind your back! Only complaint is that it seemed to end rather abruptly! Good game nevertheless.

The beginning scene got my attention. The graphics were great, and I liked the camera angles. The story was interesting, and I really wanted to see what happened next. Unfortunately, there was too much guessing on what to do next. The hint system looked great but wasn't that user friendly. I'm usually not one to back away from a challenge, but after two hours of play, I lost interest and moved on. At that point, the game didn't "hook" me enough to keep going. The game gives you difficulty settings at the beginning. I had chosen the recommended middle setting and thought about restarting the game on the easiest setting, but I had truly lost interest at that point. I gave it a three star rating instead of the two stars that I was going to give it because of the graphics and story line. I only recommend this game to those who like challenging HOGs.
I love mysteries but NOT when it involves basic instructions of what to do next, what is objective of a puzzle that has just appeared, or guessing at a map of how the various locations interconnect. The plot is very slow to develop then concludes far too quickly in the last scenario. Who is this person? What motivation for the murders? Very unsatisfying, it had great potential.

The story line on this game was initially intriguing, with modern day murders linked back to killings in London in the 1880s. But it seemed to me to be somewhat disjointed. The graphics were very good, the voice over was average, and so was the music. But I had to use hints way more than I would like to figure out where to go next, which became somewhat tiresome. The puzzles were pretty good, but the explanations were not, so there was a little bit of trial and error before figuring out what actually needed to be done. By that time I lost my chance for a trophy, but I did get all the puzzles completed. Overall, this was a bit frustrating and disappointing. The game began to feel like it was dragging on and on, and then all of a sudden there was the killer. I felt like I'd missed something it was so sudden. There are many games I enjoy playing a second time, but this definitely will not be one of them.
I loved the Jack the Ripper part of the story,but spent most of my time trying to figure out where to go and what to do next... Great graphics and the HOS that there were (and there werent many) were ok...the mini games were alright ... I just felt lost in two times and after an hour and a half of play gave up because I lost interest... HAPPY GAMING EVERYONE

Although I thought the game was good, I was a little bored with the graphics as well as the subject matter. The Jack the Ripper theme is getting old and unless you read everything Angelica is saying, the story seemed boring. The hint button didn't just give you one direction, it actually pointed the way through numerous directions so you got to where you needed to be. Almost defeated the adventure. HO scenes were scarce but the mini games were original and somewhat difficult. Game is also a little on the short side. Hope you enjoy this one!
I cannot believe that no one said anything about the commercials! Really--every 3 minutes is just tooooooo much! If TV shows did commercials every 3 minutes, no one would watch! I am deleting the game because I just can't stand it anymore-- which is too bad because I liked it very much.

THESE A VERY GOOD HO GAME IT GET YOU FROM THE BEGIN AND YOU CAN JUST NOT STOP PLAYING IT. THE STORES WAS REALLY GOOD.

This game is good. Great graphics, HO scenes were clear and finding objects was not too easy, not too hard. You got more tools and need to think more to decide where and how to use them. Comparatively challenging. You went forward and backword to do missions, thinking about the tools, and discovering the new way to the previous location. Very interesting experience. Even though no map, i still was attracted and started to memorise the way and direction in mind. Good way for brain exercises. If you need more challenge, more thinking, i recommend this one.
Graphics were good but story line was weird. Started out in modern day searching for a murder, next thing you know, you're in Jack the Ripper's London. Scenes don't flow very well. DEFINATELY not one of MumboJumbo's best HO games

I found the plot a bit confusing at times, and this game really does require attention to detail, but on the whole I really enjoyed playing this game and will enjoy it again in the future. Like many of Mumbo Jumbo's games, the artistic rendering is quite beautiful and the HOGs are very well done, but what kept me going was the very challenging mini games (I had to use the strategy guide for help on a few of them). A lot of fun, give it a try!
The story line is a bit clever in that it studies past murders and uses that information to solve a current murder. Because of it's complexity and play on names I found myself giving only partial attention after awhile - listening only to grasp what the goal was going to be and not so much trying to dig into the story itself. I played the casual mode because of the early reviews of this game - players finding it difficult to identify what and where the next event was to be. I found this not to be as challenging as anticipated, noting that I did need to use a help three different times to figure it out. That said, I found the game to be quite 'logical' - as apposed to some HOG's I've played that the developer used 'unlogical' as a means of making the game hard to play. I did decide to purchase this game. A replay sometime in the future in the expert mode would be something I would enjoy doing. The graphics and vocals are very good and the HO scenes had both easy to find items and some not so easy; and they have interactive items in them (i.e. drawers to open, pillows to move...) All in all I feel you will get a good bang for your buck with this game.
