Jekyll & Hyde is an adventure video game by Cryo Interactive. It was released for Microsoft Windows in 2001. A PlayStation 2 version was planned but was eventually cancelled.

Set in 1890 London, this game puts the player in the role of Dr. Jekyll, whose mission is to save his daughter, Laurie, from her kidnappers by recovering certain mysterious and magical artifacts in one night. Dr. Jekyll has no choice but to reactivate his laboratory equipment and bring back his dreaded alter ego, Mr. Hyde.

Reception[edit]

Although the sound effects are praised, Jekyll & Hyde didn't receive many positive reviews from critics. IGN says “Good voice acting is unfortunately overshadowed by the lack of animation when characters are speaking...if almost nothing else is good about a game, sound cannot save it.”[2] GameSpot criticized the game's confusing camera angles and bad control, saying "it seems less like a game and more like a parody of the action-adventure genre."[3]
