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 four 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 to uncover the clues and catch the killer, or else you may be next. Each of the suspects can turn out to be the killer depending on how you play the game. Written by Kyser Soze

10 years and i never got beyond disc 2
18 February 2007 | by shardy958855709See all my reviews

Ripper - a future version of Jack The Ripper style murders. Sounds great and think you're in for hours of fun.

Ill change the word hours to years. I had this game (sadly the first disc broke and its not XP compatible) 10 years and never got beyond disc two. The puzzles are complicated with no obvious or logical pattern. The story goes along and then hits a blank. I gave up playing it.

This was way before the internet and game cheats, hints and walkthroughs. Like other postings, get these at hand before you even buy the game (if you can find it - try Ebay)

All in all, if you like puzzles and got a lot of time on your hands - get hold of this game.
