A famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his companion Doctor Watson will face the cruel murder called Jack the Ripper. Of course, they are pretty useless without your support. So read this guide and just help them.
The game is, as always, in full 3D. The new thing is that now you have the ability to choose the perspective. I have played in TPP so all descriptions are based on that point of view. In other words: when I am writing "right" that means that players who are playing in FPP should read it as a "left".
The equipment (Items, Dialogues, Documents, Reports, Map) has couple of new boards: Resume, Deduction, Conclusions and ability to change from FPP to TPP (use do it with mouse and keyboard).
All items that you can find in the game was marked with red, important documents with blue, solutions with green or they were just written in bold.
This time you can use hint (space) to highlight all active objects. In contrast, all reports written by Holmes are useful but not necessary for the further development of the story.
So go and get him... The London dark and full of secrets streets are waiting for you. Beware...
