Overall, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is 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. If you are a fan of the character and stories of Sherlock Holmes or even if you are looking for a great detective game, then Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter will absolutely appeal to your tastes making it a recommendable purchase.

I'm delighted by how far Frogwares has taken the Sherlock Holmes franchise. At each iteration, they impress me more than the previous and this version is a joy to play. I just wish it were a little longer and would invest more in the graphics department.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter no es una aventura rompedora dentro del género, pero si innovadora en la franquicia de Sherlock Holmes ya que se han añadido muchos más momentos de acción. Su cuidado argumento hace que sea especial, con multitud de situaciones a las que enfrentarnos. Se ha puesto especial énfasis en la jugabilidad y ya no resulta tan lenta como as anteriores aventuras de la saga. Además, y aunque no lo habíamos dicho antes, podemos jugar con más de un personaje, lo que enriquece la aventura. The Devil’s Daughter es un salto hacia adelante en la saga de Sherlock Holmes y ya está disponible para PC, PS4 y Xbox One.

PlayStation Universe (Jun 10, 2016)
Over eighteen months on from the release of Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments and there still hasn’t been anything quite like it on PS4. Trust the developers of that game then to be the ones who surpass it with Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, an effort that not only meaningfully evolves over its predecessor but also one that sadly suffers from a small handful technical issues, making it fall just shy of greatness. All the same, the fact remains that sleuthing about Victorian London has never been as entertaining as this.

Der episodische Aufbau hatte schon in Crimes & Punishments überzeugt und so gilt es für Sherlock Holems auch in The Devil's Daughter fünf spannend konzipierte Einzelfälle zu lösen, die nur indirekt miteinander verwoben sind. Als Spieler muss man neben reinem Kalkül auch wieder übersinnliche Hilfen wie Sherlocks entlarvende Detektivsicht oder dessen Visualisierungstalent nutzen, um Spuren zu finden, Abläufe zu rekonstruieren, Täter zu überführen und Urteile zu fällen. Da oftmals verschiedene Deutungen und Ausgänge möglich sind, ist auch ein gewisser Wiederspielwert geboten. Neueinsteiger dürften sich zudem über die im Gegensatz zum Vorgänger wieder komplett deutsche und insgesamt gelungene Lokalisierung freuen. Die oft mangelnden Spielerläuterungen sind hingegen abermals zu kritisieren. Zudem sind die Ladezeiten trotz paralleler Recherchemöglichkeiten sehr lang, die technische Umsetzung sowie die implementierten Minispiele durchwachsen.

Sherlock Holmes vive uno de sus mejores capítulos en esta nueva entrega de sus aventuras destinadas esta vez para PS4, Xbox One y PC. Su parcela jugable ha sido muy cuidada y atesora una amplia cantidad de ingredientes diversos que le dotan de mucha frescura. Algunos de ellos son más convincentes que otros, pero todos ellos suman. Una obra muy recomendable para los que deseen experimentar una aventura pausada y bien narrada.

Sherlock Holmes-The Devil’s Daughter è un prodotto nato dal basso, che risente di un investimento economico non certo imponente, come si deduce dal comparto tecnico piuttosto vetusto. Eppure, ha cercato di sopperire a questa mancanza con un’eccellente varietà ludica che attenua le colpe ereditate dal predecessore, offrendo un avanzamento meno lineare, dal ritmo più sostenuto ed avvincente. Al restyling del protagonista si accompagna una sua maggiore introspezione psicologica, complice anche uno script più intenso ed emotivo rispetto al passato. Dal conservatorismo di alcune meccaniche di gioco, però, si evince che The Devil’s Daughter è anche un titolo che non ha il coraggio di osare fino in fondo e, sebbene tenti di scrollarsi di dosso la rigidezza delle avventure precedenti grazie ad una rinnovata libertà d’azione, ricade comunque nel medesimo errore di Crimes & Punishments...

Multiplayer.it (Jun 13, 2016)
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter è un'occasione parzialmente mancata. Le ottime parti investigative, ancora più articolate e profonde rispetto al passato, non trovano corrispondenza nelle nuove componenti narrative e nelle meccaniche action introdotte ex novo. Il risultato complessivo, distribuito sulle 15 ore di gioco previste per il completamento dell'esperienza, rimane comunque discreto e nulla più. L'acquisto rimane quindi consigliato ai fan generici delle avventure grafiche e a tutti gli appassionati che hanno sostenuto le opere di Frogwares dagli albori fino ad oggi.

Area Jugones (Jun 21, 2016)
Cuando uno termina con todos los casos y se precipita a dar una opinión sobre el juego, acaba con la sensación de que es un título donde premia la desconexión de todos aquellos videojuegos que pueblan actualmente el mercado. Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter no es una aventura gráfica que siente cátedra, ni siquiera quiere sentirse así. Cuida el argumento como pocas aventuras gráficas de hoy en día saben hacer, se empeña en mejorar entrega tras entrega lo mostrado en años anteriores y lo que es mucho mejor, deja un sabor verdaderamente gustoso que invita a conocer más los aspectos más literarios de las aventuras de Sherlock y Watson; aquellas que Arthur Conan Doyle escribió con la ilusión de que hoy en día la novela de investigación pudiera seguir teniendo adeptos.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter is a competent adventure game featuring a varied and well crafted gameplay experience, charming characters and engaging stories. The game still suffers from some issues, such as the the trial and error nature of the action sequences and the excessively long load times, which prevent it from being really great. With a few adjustments and improvements, the Sherlock Holmes formula could become the standard for adventure games of the future, as achieving such gameplay variety is no small feat. Highly recommended to fans of the series and adventure games' fans.

Whether it's sniffing out clues with Holmes' trusty basset hound, planning an elaborate diversion in slow motion like you're in a Guy Ritchie film, or dodging spike pits and giant rolling balls a la Indiana Jones, the Sherlock games are always throwing something different at you. 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.

A decent adventure game with lots of ropey bits. Just like the last one, and the one before it.

Spazio Games (Jun 15, 2016)
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter è una buona avventura, mantenuta in piedi da cinque casi che hanno qualcosa da raccontare e che dal punto di vista etico riescono a colpirvi, fornendo anche diversi enigmi, variegati e poco ripetitivi. Gli ottimi puzzle, però, non riescono a essere impreziositi da quelle che dovevano essere le nuove meccaniche action, che invece rallentano e ridicolizzano l’intera produzione: puntavano al cambio di ritmo, ma invece non fanno altro che annoiare il videogiocatore, la cui esperienza è bersagliata e tartassata anche dai tempi di caricamento, che come abbiamo già detto risultano essere eccessivamente lunghi e fastidiosi. Si potrebbe riassumere l’intera esperienza come un’occasione persa, là dove Frogwares avrebbe dovuto e potuto fare di più dal punto di vista tecnico e nella contestualizzazione dello scenario sull’epilogo. La figlia del diavolo meritava di più per il suo colpo di scena.

Brash Games (Jun 28, 2016)
We enjoyed Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter even though some of the puzzles are frustrating at times, the graphics however beautiful let it down by its choppy engine so for this reasons this game scores 7/10. I would definitely buy the game but that's for my own enjoyment of games in this genre, some people wouldn't enjoy the experience sadly.

PSX-Sense (Jun 08, 2016)
Toch is Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter concluderend een prima detective game waar ik me bijzonder goed mee vermaakt heb. De game laat je leuke, uiteenlopende zaken oplossen en vertelt je gaandeweg een interessant verhaal rondom Holmes’ familie. De gameplay is uiterst divers en hoewel sommige stukken niet goed uit de verf komen, zorgt het er wel voor dat je je geen moment zal vervelen. Toch is het jammer dat de game op technisch gebied nog de nodige tekortkomingen kent, waardoor ook dit nieuwe avontuur net weer geen regelrechte topper te noemen is. Toch neemt dat niet weg dat Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter een zeer vermakelijke detective-thriller is die fans van dit genre echt wel blij zal maken.

IGN Denmark (Jun 27, 2016)
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter har nogle fremragende gåder, og spillets minigames kan til tider være kreative, selvom de alt for ofte er frustrerende, da de ikke giver nok råd undervejs. Desværre har spillet ikke overordnet set rigtig noget nyt med sig i forhold til udgivelsen fra 2014, hvilket betyder, at man i bund og grund spiller det samme spil bare med en anden historie og andre gåder.

God is a Geek (Jun 09, 2016)
While The Devil's Daughter does a lot of things adequately, it does absolutely none of them spectacularly, and feels like a bit of a misstep for the series.

XGN (Jun 11, 2016)
Sherlock Holmes The Devil’s Daughter bewijst zichzelf aan het einde van de rit dan ook nog niet. Tenminste, niet op de juiste manier. De gameplay is echt verbeterd, met onder andere de introductie van keuzes en nieuwe puzzels, maar grafisch moet er een flinke update komen voor de serie. De franchise heeft ook in dit deel weer de nodige stappen genomen, maar heeft nog een lange weg te gaan. De zaken die je krijgt zijn interessant en houden je zeker tien uur bezig. Al met al is dit dan ook een game die het proberen waard is, maar niet voor de volle mep van 60 euro.

GameGrin (Sep 13, 2016)
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.

Riot Pixels (Oct 19, 2016)
Больше набор тематических мини-игр с ценником от проекта класса «ААА», чем цельное произведение. Разработчикам пора менять вектор развития серии, пока она окончательно не скатилась в посредственное «интерактивное кино».

InsideGamer (Jun 23, 2016)
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter vernieuwt door je meer keuzes te geven, waardoor je het gevoel hebt van invloed te zijn op de gebeurtenissen en onderzoekszaken. De verhalen en puzzels zitten goed in elkaar, maar worden verpakt in een grafisch achtergebleven game vol matig stemacteerwerk. De besturing laat bovendien te wensen over.

TheSixthAxis (Jun 07, 2016)
I’d love to be able to give Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter a stronger review, but it simply isn’t possible. 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. What’s more frustrating is that even though the game has a lot of issues on a technical level, it’s not actually buggy. You never fall through the world or find yourself unable to progress in a case, you’re just left with persistent frame rate, screen tearing and control issues that drag down a solid, if unexceptional, game.

GameSpew (Jun 08, 2016)
But if you’ve played any of Frogwares’ past Sherlock Holmes games none of this will surprise you. They have always been unexceptional interpretations of the world’s most exceptional detective, at times displaying some moments of brilliance, but mostly held back by their ineptitude and desire for safety. This entry, however, reported itself to be a bold new vision for the franchise and one that could have changed up all the rules. What was delivered is more of the same in a sharp new overcoat and handsome rugged face which serve to conceal nothing of the vapidness underneath.

With a bit more polish, and a few much needed scenes, this game could be amazing.

The Telegraph (Jul 06, 2016)
Still, despite the inconsistencies, The Devil’s Daughter is an enjoyable thriller. Albeit one that doesn’t always know its strengths.

IGROMANIA (Jul 12, 2016)
Далеко не худший детектив, но то, что серия движется в направлении боевиков, с которыми The Devil's Daughter тягаться не в состоянии, очень печалит. Crimes & Punishments была заметно лучше почти во всем.
