Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, the eighth game in the series, is an incredible adventure game with unique gameplay blending investigation, action and exploration for an extraordinary experience that will test the limits of players’ nerves and intelligence. Playing as the great detective, they will have to track down evil in the darkest corners of London and the human spirit, freely exploring several neighbourhoods in the city in search of clues and suspects while they untangle a web of intrigue leading to the final stunning revelation.
Frogwares’ Sherlock Holmes games have always been very weird. From the early awful fan-fiction-like conflations of Doyle’s work with his contemporaries, complete with evil staring Watson, to the more recent third-person festivals of terribleness, they’ve not managed to be good, but they’ve certainly managed to be strange. And yup, that’s not changing here. The Devil’s Daughter [official site] is like a fever dream, but a fever dream that’s been really badly made. Here’s my impressions of the first half, because good grief.
Goodness me, time has done well for Holmes and Watson. Eight Sherlock games in, suddenly the titular hero has become a man possibly in his late 20s, with for the first time a brand new young’un’s voice, while the formerly terrifying teleporting Watson has shaved off many decades and become a slim, rakishly handsome fellow with complicated facial hair. Both look distinctly 21st century, despite living in a 19th century world of bonnets and “good sire”s. However, this hasn’t extended to moving to new, trendier digs – it’s the very same flat as in previous games, complete with telescope, although this time it can no longer exclusively be used to perv on the voluptuous lady living across the street.
Devil’s Daughter is the eleventh Sherlock title and the eighth instalment Frogwares’ continuing evolution of the character. It features a younger version of Holmes than seen in previous titles – a more reckless incarnation, who tackles cases while looking after his daughter Kate and contending with a mysterious new presence in the form of Alice De Bouvier. There’s an overarching plot concerning Kate’s true parentage and the motives behind Alice’s moving to Baker Street, which weaves into the story as the cases unfold.
The mysteries themselves are weird and wonderful tales of foul play that incorporate corrupt lords, ancient Mayan curses, and the rising fame of Sherlock himself. This title also has some of the series’ best writing, with genuinely touching moments between Sherlock and his daughter mixed in with comedic flourishes, like Holmes faking a demonic possession to put the fear of God into a poor old woman.
