    Even better than Frogwares’ previous attempts at creating an accurate representation of the character and sleuthing of Sherlock Holmes, therefore elevating it to being the best videogame adaptation of the character and story thus far.

    All the same, the fact remains that sleuthing about Victorian London has never been as entertaining as this.

    The Devil's Daughter is one of the best adventures of Sherlock so far. It's very well design, fun and enjoyable, and one of the most diverse in the series.

    Devil's Daughter focuses more on story, with a larger plot taking over from the case work in satisfying ways. Some extended sequences of button mashing can become tiresome and the moral choice system doesn't add anything substantial, but the overall experience is great fun.

    Although the game’s engine could be tweaked to run smoother and maybe it will in the future, a lot of the time the graphics aren’t what make a game. It’s the storyline and how much you are enjoying the experience are the real reason this game will score higher for me.

    The Devil's Daughter is a collection of minigames sewn together with a very questionable story, but that manages to keep the player amused for the duration of the game. Particularly given the atmosphere crafted in every detail of London and the deduction mechanics, the game will often make you feel like Sherlock.

    The story is solid, if a little unusual for a Sherlock Holmes tale, and the collection of mechanics and mini-games that could easily feel thrown together actually work well together, leaving you guessing about what comes next.

    Most of the cases were good, but not that challenging even on hard. Too many annoying "minigames" and silly puzzles. Some jankiness here and there.

    It's a bad parody of Crimes and Punishments, I'm disappointed.

The Mayan translation riddle is aI generally have enjoyed the Sherlock Holmes series of games, and investigation based games as a genre. The Mayan translation riddle is a terrible puzzle. You can get close to the answer logically but then are forced into hundreds of trial and error combinations to guess, having nothing to base it on. I did this for about 20 mins before rage googling the answer. Terrible!!! Expand
