In The Games Corner – Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, Playstation 4

When I got a PS4, I remember one of the first game I originally wanted to buy was the Sherlock Holmes game because the first two on the PS3 were so good and also addictive that I had to play more. I got the PS4 and then completely forgot about it until it popped up on sale items one day this year. I got so excited and downloaded it straight away. I managed to complete it in about 4 days. If you like crime solving games, then this is the game for you. Whilst it is the third in the series it is still completely different to the others before it.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devils Daughter was released in October of 2016, it was developed by Frogwaves. The game is an adventure mystery which sees you play as Sherlock Holmes as he solves five cases as well as confronting dark family secrets too.

In the game you have to figure out and solve who committed a murder by interviewing suspects visiting crime scenes and looking for any clues that can help you on your way. You have the skills of analysing people, re-imagining what happened at a crime scene and then deducting clues to work out who actually did it. You even get chances to play as Doctor Watson and Sherlock Homes dog as well.

The game received positive reviews with an average score of 6/10 with it being praised for  being a great detective game. However, the game was criticised for having a number of technical issues and there were parts that had a few glitches.
