  1. Just found this on my download list, so I thought I'd see some reviews whilst its downloading. Hopefully I'll enjoy it!

  2. Hey guys.. Don't check out Sherlocks' telescope.. Just sayin' lolol I just made that mistake!

  3. Not at all sure if i liked this better than the last one. The puzzles were way more challenging there compared to C&P, tho I did like opening locks in this one 🙂 I liked the variety of characters n specially stories + numerous different endings. The testament was differend but in a good way. I liked how they used sherlock's potential on a sorta villainish kinda way, what with the very cold,manipulative and narsistic style not so far from his character features in the books, even tho in the end it was about a bigger picture,which was this one big story building the whole game up. I was left with one question tho with C&P..what was up with our former female wrestler looking at our window from start till end?? At first i thought it'd be related to one of the cases but only got that short amusing moment in the end? 😛

  4. I really wanna punch Watson. That doormat getting in my way, blocking me the whole time when i am about to find out a new clue dammit. Then i restart the game grrr. What a useless cunt…

  5. Got it with Games with Gold and I completed it. This game is SO GOOD.

  6. Hey guys, about to buy this game but I have just 1 question. Does the game involves solving many cases or just ONE case?

  7. I've been playing it, I've had quite a jolly bit of fun with it, and as a fan of the original work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this game does a good job putting you into the world of Sherlock Holmes. It's such a shame that Devil's Daughter seems to have strayed back away from what made this game great 🙁 This game is the standard which the developers should base future games off of.

  8. I didn't like it as much as The Testament of Sherlock Holmes, it lacks the immersiveness of a complete story, it's just disparate cases involving a bit of logic, but none of the background stories manage to stand out as particularly interesting.

  9. been thinking about playing this game, just wasn't sue how it would feel. your review has laid many of those to rest. having "video game ADD" as my friends put it, it is difficult to find and stick with a single game sometimes….so we'll see

  10. Needs a lot of fixing. Watson keeps getting in the way, the puzzles are not connected to the story or case at all, every time you click on something Sherlock points out the obvious and most of the time doesn't connect with anything. Plus it's very annoying to have to look for everything you apparently "missed" so you look for it for an hour and it ends out to be an object that has nothing to do with the case. I'd give this game a 6/10. I understand what they tried to do. They could have made better improvements. the overall structure of the game has potential. But seriously, the game annoyed me more than I actually enjoyed solving cases.
