    Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is an amazing experience, that takes this series further than on the last generation of consoles. The game presents interesting cases with lots of variation, both in atmosphere and game design.

    Overall, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is a great game. The cases are captivating and many of the minigames are a lot of fun.

    Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter introduces new and interesting elements capable of making Sherlock Holmes a more human and charismatic character with some welcome additions in gameplay too, like the new first person mode. It's still got some of the series known defects though, like low-detailed characters and bad animations, while load times can often be exhausting.

    This title offers a typical Sherlock Holmes storyline and an easy completion, but its issues turn this into a mediocre affair rather than the elementary experience that you would expect from Holmes himself.

    A promising follow-up to C&P let down by its insistence on badly designed set-pieces. [Aug 2016, p.78]

    The game isn’t without its issues, the load times are borderline ridiculous at times and there’s no tutorial so you’ll spend most of the first act scratching your head in confusion. All non-crime solving elements are mind-numbingly boring, but the game overall fills a niche in the gaming world that we don’t see done nearly enough in most games. When you’re bored doing laps on a circuit or shooting foes on the battlefield, take some time out and pick up The Devil’s Daughter. As a crime-solver, it does alright.

    An utter embarrassment to an relatively solid series, The Devil’s Daughter falls into every cliché mistake of trying to cater to a massive audience. Overuse of QTEs, terrible action sequences, oversimplification and a lackluster story are just some of the complaints behind this massive letdown by Frogwares, giving us the worst Sherlock Holmes adventure in the past 25 years.

    A very strange reimagening that takes away the charm of Doyle's original characters while failing to add any reason to like these new genericA very strange reimagening that takes away the charm of Doyle's original characters while failing to add any reason to like these new generic hero versions of the iconic cast. If you create a Sherlock Holmes game you can probably expect to mostly generate interest people from who are previous fans of the Sherlock holmes. It makes little sence to move so completely away from the feel of the original protagonists. You can reimagine the setting (as in House, MD or Cumberbatch's modern day Sherlock) or stay true (like the Jeremy Bratt stories) bur if you lose the essence of Holmes and Watson you are also likely to lose the appeal. It certainly holds none to me. Expand

Les animations sont un peu raides, cependant mais la VF est de qualité pour sa part, c'est toujours ça de pris.

    Mais le problème rédhibitoire de cette enquête est soit un bug, soit un machin, un indice que je n'ai pas validé, ou bien cet empaffé de jeu de merde n'a absolument aucune logique... Or, la logique veut qu'on aille au pub et lorsqu'on y va, cet abruti répète qu'il n'a pas soif. Déjà pour un Anglais, ça n'a pas de sens mais surtout, c'est totalement aberrant de refuser de suivre le cours de l'enquête.

    Quelle connerie de merde de jeu à la con programmé par des zouaves ! faut faire quoi pour avancer ? chanter la traviata dans les rues pouilleuses de ce Londres dégueulasse ? si je me retape encore un aller-retour de 2 minutes pour rien, je vous désinstalle, Môssieur le détective en carton ! Ah bah c'est déjà fait. En fait. Et ne reviens pas, couillon !

You take wild stabs at what you think the ending might be and maybe you'll randomly get the one "right" answer (even though you were given no narrative hints).

    If you have anxiety about getting things wrong in games like this, be prepared to use a walkthrough -- unlike LA Noire and a million other games that capture whodunnit gameplay correctly, this one is complete trash.

    I didn't get this title to play low-rent versions of ten other games (looking at you, horrible Uncharted-ripoff "temple" sequence.) I wanted to be the world's greatest detective.

    Based on this piece of trash I won't play another Holmes game from this developer. Between the horrible gameplay decisions and the bugs it's a complete dishonor to a prestige franchise.

    I have been playing the Sherlock Holmes games since the Jack the Ripper game and this game has ruined the franchise for me. I hate what theyI have been playing the Sherlock Holmes games since the Jack the Ripper game and this game has ruined the franchise for me. I hate what they have done to the look of the character and the changes that make this game an Assassin's Creed rip off. They had a really nice thing going that fans enjoyed and they just had to get greedy and try to make something that would appeal to everybody and that is NEVER a good idea. You have lost the games fans and I doubt you have gained any new players. Hate this game and do not recommend it to anyone. On top of these complaints the load times were atrocious! Goodbye Sherlock, this will be out last meeting. Expand
