November is almost here, which means a new round of free games for Xbox Live Gold members. The latest batch is including a lot of great freebies, and one of them includes Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter. This action mystery game normally goes for $54.99, so the fact that Microsoft is giving it away for free is a steal of a deal. It will be available all the way until the 30th.

The game’s developer — Frogwares — did a great job at blending investigate elements with exploration and action. You actually feel like you’re in one of the Sherlock Holmes movies, where attention to detail and quick-thinking can lead to a break in the big mystery.

Like a lot of other games in the Sherlock Holmes series, the actions you make have a direct impact on how the rest of the game plays out. Thus, you feel immersed in every decision you decide to make. Games like this always stand out. You don’t just go through throw-away sequences that don’t amount to anything. How the plot unravels is completely up to you.

If you’ve ever wanted to take on the role of Sherlock Holmes, this is the game for you. He has extraordinary investigative abilities that you’ll need to rely on throughout this roller coaster of mystery.

Another great aspect of this game is your ability to explore the neighborhoods in the city to your liking. The architecture is beautiful and you’re taken back to historical times. Having the ability to explore on your own gives you a sense of freedom that you can’t get enough of. As you enter in a particular storefront or building, you never really know what clue is waiting for you to uncover.

This game also gets it right with its combat and interrogation system. You have a variety of controls to use when going toe to toe with enemies. Chasing them down as you try to get some information will get your adrenaline going. Interrogating enemies for key pieces of information also is a rush.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is one of the better mystery games on the market. From start to finish, you’ll be locked into the story and ready for some epic revelations. It can be yours on the first of next month if you have a Gold membership. Games like this appear on the Gold member platform on a frequent basis.
