Longer and with more polish than its predecessors, Case 5 sees Ben Jordan in Japan with friends from Case 4. Another high point in the series, even better than Case 3. Still a bit short on gameplay but it should provide ample entertainment for fans of the series.

About

After the events in London, Ben Jordan returns home for a much needed rest. One day, he receives a conference call from his friends Simon Booth and Alice Wilkins. Simon has heard of a series of murders in Osaka, Japan, and thinks there is some sort of paranormal activity involved. Ben, Simon, and Alice travel to Japan, but soon find there is much more to the story than they first thought...

BJ5 was a very entertaining game, although it has some rough edges. The plot was a bit too straightforward for my taste. The restaurant was introduced too early and the hints the cook gave were a bit too clear. Also it was a bit tiresome to revisit all locations again on the following day (which was already a problem with GK1).

But don't let me trick you in believing this game is anything less than great, thats not the case.
Go play it. Now.

Pretty awesome, actually. The environments and puzzles are getting easier. ONE obscure puzzle and a somewhat annoying trivia part, but overall an excellent addition to the series.

Overall programming quality continues to rise. Graphics are very nice with some great outside shots. However, like other reviewers noted, some characters didn't look Japanese and the map could've been more artistic. I enjoyed the story and I like the way each ben jordan story builds upon the previous. Music was great and captured the Japanese flavor. Overall a great effort

Case 5 has a great title and swept me up quickly, though I wished it could've gone on for longer!
Pros: Awesome atmosphere and music, characters well done, ending and beginning were good.
Cons: Too much wandering back and forth between places, some plot points a little too obvious.

It's a ben jordan game, of course it was good!
my constructive criticism:
Some of the Asians didn't look Asian, and Ben Jordan could step on the sleeping mats with his shoes on, I kept thinking how dirty they were getting!
