Sherlock Holmes and The Devil's Daughter is pretty much the same as previous games, but there are still a few new things to come out in the game. In this game, London is better than all previous versions and now it's bigger than ever and has more places to explore and investigate. Of course, the game is not Open World at all, but in any case, in some steps, you can go to the corners of this city, which is a positive point. The majority of the game is about solving puzzles and the mystery behind the files. fortunately, this aspect of the game, as always, performs well and the developers have also been able to inject the elements of the previous gameplay into the veins of this version. investigating the environments and clues (which have a lot of details) is very enjoyable. you always have the sense of being a real detective in game and you must carefully monitor all the details and matters so that you can advance in the process of resolving the case. In total, the gameplay has not been changed to the past significantly. Maybe the game is still attractive for the old fans of this series, and I can recommend only to get the game with a good discount!
Adaptations from literature to the world of high-quality computer games (such as Witcher and Metro series), and the specialty of Sherlock Stories is just made for an AAA and high-level game; such a disappointment that Frogwares's effort to make a successful work out of this loving detective sometimes just does not work. Their two recent creation, "The Testament of Sherlock Holmes," and "Crimes & Punishments) ", had made significant progress in terms of qualitative visions of their predecessors. But the "devil's daughter" has more stopped than taking steps forward. I agree that Frogwares are not incredible makers, but if they were more accurate, we would have a more interesting piece of work. with all said, I suggest the "devil's daughter" only to Sherlock Holmes fans and in off sales time only!
Before I played this game, I thought that nothing could be better than Crimes and Punishments but I was wrong - The Devil's Daughter is an amazing game. This game has far more complicated cases which require you to take real decisions and you have many moments where you can make a mistake. However, the game is not too hard to be able to complete the cases correctly, you don't need to be the real Sherlock Holmes to make it out - you just need to think, which is the most beautiful part of this game.
Crimes and Punishments is one of the best detective games of all time and a modern classic of the adventure game genre. So its follow-up, Devil's Daughter, was guaranteed to be good right? Sadly no. Devil's Daughter is grossly inferior to C&P in almost every way. The game just screams getting rushed out the door and Frogwares having little confidence in the standard C&P set. The writing is much worse and utterly nonsensical at times, the mysteries are so rushed with barely any explanation of motives and real conclusive evidence that you pretty much have to guess who the culprit is. The game is bogged down with terrible puzzles and minigames that take away from what made C&P so great. The game looks nice and its neat how bigger some of the areas are, but it ultimately feels that it was a wasted effort that could have been used to tighten up what really mattered.
In this game the gamer does not have too much control over how clues are discovered and at what pace. The action is pretty decent, however interrogation of witnesses seem too plain. Not a lot of flavor throughout the game itself which ends up making it feel a little bland. There are enjoyable aspects of finding the clues and figuring out the crime itself, but the overall and general feel leaves the gamer wanting more than what meets the eye. It could have been a really good game that decided on being decent. As a one off play and enjoy, pick it up. The replay value is not much.
