This is the "darkest" of the lot.
Yes they really have done it. Even neiled it.
As a fan of Sherlock Holmes you really will be side by side with him in this one.
He does not "need something" anymore like in the other series. He really is there in Whitechapel bending over the bodies and searching. Making notes. At home interlinking them with red twine to build up a persona-profile of Jack.
As vivid some authors are in their description of the "scenes" Watson describes for us readers, in this game the awe of death is still there. The crimescene searches and depictures are somewhat grafitty/aquarell style, but you still "get the picture" of what has been done and a profound analysis when you nvestigate the right spots.
The progression is very good and the storytelling driving. Still...a Sherlockian will find this to be too much unspoken/-seen gore for far too little character depth and Holmes'es-livingroom flair where you would have him and Watson banter the tabloids a bit more and annoy Miss Hudson with outrageos behaviour for the 19th century.
But what this Game lacks in the details around the story, it packs into details within it.
The deduction phases are wonderful (yet a bit easy..) in display and funcionality.
The soundscore is brilliant. And the voice-cast...well no Jeremy Brett but still fitting to say: "the game is afoot"
