    Detective work works, but needless action elements make this worst Sherlock so far. [Aug 2016]

    Shelock Holmes : The Devil's Daughter is a nice step to evolve the IP into something more substantial. Conservative enough to satisfy the fans, and new enough to draw in young players.

    Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is another solid entry into this long-running franchise.

    To uncover the truth, you’ll have to possess not only deductive skills, but a considerable patience as well: puzzles “pull a lever, push a button, try to figure out what happened” and chase sequences are unreasonably long. Even though you’d think that a game about Sherlock would have you play as Sherlock, not as Indiana Jones wannabe. [Issue#211, p.73]

    Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter is an uneven game. Making Sherlock younger and having him take part in action scenes was a good idea but the execution is poor at best. Still there are some excellent mini-games, interesting investigation and a truly great deduction board. If only the game handled it's characters better it would be glorious. The end result is ok but the potential is far from being fully realized.

    Sherlock took a few long steps away from the adventure toward the action gaming again. Although someone might actually like this change, fans of the original game won’t be satisfied. [Issue#265]

    Three weak cases, one decent, and a lackluster finale make Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter a marked step back from its predecessor.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I think it's not an adventure game, but an mind one, you gotta have good deduction skills, such as Sherlock.
    The best part of the game: The human hunt.
    The worst: The stealth part in Infamy (Really hate this part)
    The game doesn't follow the original story series, but it makes it to have a world for itself, with charismatic characters and involving narrative and dialogues, the deduction and evidences part are very well-programmed.
    Just didn't like that when you finish you don't have anything else to do.

My main problem is that Devil's Daughter is not an adventure game any more,I really loved the series before and I have/played all of them. My main problem is that Devil's Daughter is not an adventure game any more, but a QTE abusing, console sh*t. And of the said genre there are a myriad out there that are a lot better... Frogware was making Sherlock adventure games before and built up a solid fan base in like a decade. Now they have new money men on their neck who want profit and for that you have to make simple (stupid) games, a five year old can enjoy. There you have it. No thinking involved here, just button smashing. Instead of quick money they should have stayed on their paved way, because this way they loose the old fans and won't get any new ones. This is a sad end for a great series.
    BTW the game wasn't released steam yet, still it had already 10+ positive votes and 1 "review" of a user with 1 review in all and copy paste text. Makes you think about the new Frogware style of game marketing.

    The Game is nad. I really like tbe series in general, but this was a huge disapointment.
    The story is boring which is pretty harsh from a Sherlock Holmes game. The gameplay is linear as a tube, and it has has a lot of "mini-game" mechanics that does not help the experience, but takes out from the game, and makes you cringe. The graphics are not bad, although they could've been better. The cinematography of the game is really ugly, with bad cuts, and weird camera movements.
    But the main problem is, that it's not a Sherlock Holmes game. It's a game about a cool action hero who also happens to be a detective in 19th century London. The character in the books or the great movies is a lot different than the protagonist of this game.

    Absolute rubbish if I may say so. Holmes and Watson look like hipsters. They talk like fa*s and their **** all reta**ed. What an abomination.Absolute rubbish if I may say so. Holmes and Watson look like hipsters. They talk like fa*s and their **** all reta**ed. What an abomination. The queen herself should banish this game for mocking Sir A. Conan Doyle's memory and legacy.

    Besides that this game is exact replica of Crimes & Punishments in graphics, mechanics and puzzles departments.

This is not adventure game, at least not good one. It is worse than its predecessor with more QTE. I hate two things in games - "cinematic experience" and QTE, this game delivers both. Expand
