Even a century after his brutal crimes, Jack the Ripper is such an immense figure in popular culture that you expect big things from any game bearing his name. Toss in the world’s most legendary fictional sleuth, Sherlock Holmes, and you up the ante even further. Given all that, it’s perhaps a little disappointing that Frogwares’ newest addition to its long-running adventure series starring everybody’s favorite detective feels sort of generic. Although Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper is mesmerizing in spots due to a fantastic blending of the serial killer’s crime scenes with Holmes’ rigorous investigating, too many stock adventure quests interfere with your eerie wanderings around Whitechapel. It’s hard to get involved in the great story and sleuthing while being constantly interrupted to run mundane errands.
