In all, Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper is a hard game to recommend. It is also a hard game to dismiss. With approximately 15 hours of play time, there is enough momentum built up toward the end that the forgiving gamer may be inclined to forget about all the time wasted in getting there. If you are a real puzzle fanatic or a big fan of this franchise, you will probably find enough entertainment to get you through. If, however, you demand a cohesive gaming experience that seems like a real adventure, you are advised to give this game a pass.
