The game is made for console and best played with a gamepad. The puzzles are piece of cake and certainly aimed for younger audience. However it does have a very good production value. My only criticism is last few hours of the game seemed rushed, it looks like they running out of budget.
There's something wrong with the trailer GOG. ;) Other than that, while the game looks great, i read that it contains a lot QTEs, maybe because the game also released on consoles (or better, maybe because it was designed for consoles). Just a warning for those who don't enjoy QTEs at all.

Let me quote this: "Frogwares has long padded its Sherlock Holmes titles with ill-advised action sequences, usually heavy on button-matching QTEs and other design cues lifted from ten-years past. Some are so-bad-it’s-good (playing as Holmes’s dog in Testament) while others are plain bad (pretty much everything else).

It reaches a peak in The Devil’s Daughter. A solid 50 percent of this eight-hour game involves Holmes and occasionally Watson futzing through QTEs in order to forge a knife, revive an unconscious man, win a bar fight, or some other drudgery.

Nice addition. I'm surprised it was added before Crimes and Punishments.
wow, that's an expensive P&C adventure game!

I figure it's 30+ hours of gameplay+story?

I was hoping for "Crimes and Punishment", which is very good.

This latest installment of the series has a few flaws. I guess they tried to appeal to a younger audience or the "mass market". And I personally don't like how they changed Holmes character. Wishlisted for now.

Question : is the user allowed to select the game's language ?
GOG is on a roll for the last few days, well done! :)
