    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.

    This game doesn't have a very high budget, as you can see some savings, but something that it doesn't save is in the script, very wellThis game doesn't have a very high budget, as you can see some savings, but something that it doesn't save is in the script, very well written, different from several AAA games out there. However, I felt a little potential wasted in the story. The game is very creative, generating a good variety of missions and events. He's unlike anything I've ever played. I thought the third case was somewhat unsolved, none of the suspects seemed right. The last case I thought was pretty much too.

    What I found most interesting is that you miss the culprit, always leaving you with one foot behind and theorizing a lot.

    I liked how Sherlock is idealized by others, he has defects, is manipulative, has family problems and does everything to solve a case without caring about the feelings of others. But he is certainly a great detective.

It's a good adventure crime game with involving narrative and dialogues, the deduction and evidences part are very well-programmed and there are some hard puzzles which give you the feeling of being a real detective. Graphics and Environment design are so cool. I can't say same for mechanism of the game.
    The game features five separate cases in semi-open world map. Each case has its own good plot but The Temple mission in one of cases was totally nonsense.
    And also I expected two different endings for the game but however it was so linear that it forces you to make right decisions!
    As far as I know it's only Frogwares that makes these kind of games and it's really good. However there were few problems with the game.
    But it's worth playing at least for once.

It's not perfect but it was mostly pretty good and aweful at some points (Seriously what kind of clown had the brilliant idea with the imaginary Indiana Jones-esque temple where you had to dodge imaginary traps for a good part of an hour?). In fact any "action" elements felt out of place and were executed pretty terribly. The story was engaging and the riddles fair and mostly fun to solve. I would have wished some more consequences from your decicions though. All in all 6/10 slightly above average. Expand

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
