Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper

Playing as either Sherlock Holmes or Dr. John Watson, you investigate murders in Victorian England, crimes thought to be committed by real-life serial killer, Jack the Ripper. Actual victims of Jack the Ripper appear in the game, such as Annie Chapman, who was found dead, throat slit wide apart. While Sherlock Holmes may be fictional, Jack the Ripper’s real-life DNA holds this game together.
