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.
Sherlock Holmes, John Watson and Kate Holmes (Yes, he has a daughter now) are back to work in their apartment of Baker Street. The Devil's Daughter is a solid adventure game. There are four cases you must solve and it's possible to accuse the wrong guy in each one of them. Far too often, investigation games are too linear to let the player make mistakes, so it's very refreshing to have this possibility in the Devil's Daughter. The game consists in various things to do during the investigation. You will search locations for clues, you will interrogate witnesses and you will solve some puzzles too. All puzzles and situations take the form of a pleasant mini-game (That you can skip). There are also some action sequences to pick up the pace from time to time. However, the game suffers from a too linear game design. Simply put, the game won't let you decide what to do. Objective markers will always tell what is your course of action. Hopefully, that's no deal breaker. The Devil's Daughter is still a very cool adventure game. It's just a bit less interesting than the previous episode.
