Sherlock Holmes Tracks Jack The Ripper To US Xbox 360

JoWooD Entertainment and Dreamcatcher pit the greatest fictional detective of all time against one of the most notorious real-life serial killers in Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper, coming in March to the North American Xbox 360.

Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper is the fifth in a series of Holmes adventure titles developed by Frogwares, already released for the PC in North America and Europe. Europe currently has the exclusive on the Xbox 360 version, but that ends in March, when JoWood subsidiary Dreamcatcher brings the struggle between master detective and merciless killer Xbox 360 owners on this side of the pond.

Players will explore the Whitechapel area of London in 1888, searching for clues to the identity of the notorious murder with the help of his faithful sidekick, Watson. It already has a more compelling plot than the recently released Robert Downey Jr vehicle, so if you felt the movie pissed on Arthur Conan Doyle's grave as much as I did, then perhaps the game will be just the thing to make it all better. Look for it in March for the Xbox 360, or pick it up today for the PC.

    Terrible game, feels like it belongs on a last gen console. Really only for die hard sherlock fans. Good story, but the graphics and poor gameplay just make it almost unplayable

    Sorry, but Batman is the greatest fictional detective of all time.

    I feel embarrassed for the makers of this game - those graphics are horrific. The worst i've seen in this gen - especially now that we're in what, 2010?

      Dude, I have more fun playing Myst than most current gen game with their HD graphics. What does that tell you about game play these days.

      Anyhow, I have this game, but until I can get the damn copy protection to back off I do not know what it is like. All I know is that it is an adventure based on what is printed at the back of the box.

        And thats totally understandable. Myst is how old? Answer that and them compare the difference (and technology) to the release date or development time of this game, then get back to me.

        There is no reason for a game to look this crap.

        Some may say graphics don't really affect the gameplay of a game and as it may be true in some cases, it doesn't for this game.
