How often do you play a game and walk away wishing that they put more emphasis on the lawn bowls? Be prepared for that possibility with The Devil's Daughter.
As someone who has generally enjoyed Sherlock outings (Testament, Crimes & Punishment and even Jack the Ripper in its simple ugliness) despite the assessment of other critics, I held reasonably high hopes for a next-gen iteration. Sadly, it's a bit of a letdown.
Pay no heed to any talk of an open-world game environment. This "open world" basically amounts to being able to walk out the front door of 221B and slowly jog down the street to take a cab to the required location, employing the same load-screen substitute seen in Crimes and Punishment.
Graphics have seen a bit of an improvement from earlier games, but the visuals here are, relatively speaking, pretty poor compared to what a lot of other games are putting forward these days. Colour tones in particular are washed out and bland, which becomes an even bigger issue when most of the game takes place in fairly dark settings and an appreciable portion of the gameplay is concerned with identifying fine detail.
These however are just foibles. The game in general seems poorly thought out and has an unstructured feel to it. The four or five cases you play through are entirely unrelated, and the one recurring element of the entire game (being the sub-plot concerning Sherlock's adopted daughter and his new neighbour Alice) is a very thinly told story that for the most part feels pointless and is blatantly shoehorned into the gameplay as filler between cases.
The one plus for the game is the trophy haul. In essence, as long as you don't skip any puzzles or sequences and figure out how to win a game of lawn bowls, then at the end of the game you will have twenty-something trophies added to your collection. Unfortunately it is by no means a satisfying platinum.

If you are a fan of the other sherlock holmes games you will love this. It uses the well-known detective gameplay, but mixes it with new and exciting gameplay such as stealth and chase scenes. While the game does not look or play as well as other more popular ps4 games, this is still a very good game and has a fantastic story
