The world’s greatest detective (or, at least the most well-known overall) is back on the Switch for another dose of sleuthing, and that’s generally a good thing. Much like the previous entry in the series, The Devil’s Daughter manages to be compelling for armchair detectives who can be patient and wade through some issues with the controls and progression that aren’t always ideal… but certainly remain workable. I suppose in the interests of giving the game a bit of added flavor some pursuit sequences and what amounts to mini games have been added to the formula and I would imagine the reactions to this development would split down the middle. They are a nice distraction, even if either too simplistic or drawn out in some cases, but because of the inconsistent quality I can’t say they’re a net positive addition for the overall experience. However, if you enjoy cracking the case and following the clues to construct an accurate picture of what nefarious deeds have been done this will still probably satisfy.
