Jack's back. In 2040, a vicious serial killer stalks the mean streets of New York, eviscerating his victims and vanishing without a trace, leaving no clues to his, or her, identity. Only you, as crime reporter Jake Quinlan, can crack the case. There are three suspects; Detective Magnota, lead investigator of the case; Dr. Burton, the doctor with the mysterious past; Falconetti, master hacker; and your own girlfriend and fellow reporter Catherine, whose mother may have been the Ripper's first victim. It's up to you, uncover the clues and catch the killer, or else you may be next. Written by Kyser Soze

OOOWE, what a difficult game
6 May 2001 | by (Stirling, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This game is incedidibly difficult. I've always though that with this type of game it should say, along the requirements- minimum of IQ 150. Some of the puzzles are beyond complex and very time consuming. However the story of this game is quite inventive and the characters make it interesting. But watch out for the hammy acting of the guy you play- Jake Quinlan- it is quite amusing if you don't take it seriously. Chrisopher Walken is overacting to the extreme but since I like him as an actor and this is just a computer game, I've forgiven that. I wish they would re-release games like this on one DVD, instead of 6 discs it originally came in. The walkthrough available on the web doesn't make you feel like a cheat, strangely, because it still takes forever. On the whole it is a good experience, though, as you get closer to finding out the ripper.
