For centuries the kingdom has been at odds with neighboring Nostria, but now first steps are being undertaken toward a lasting peace. But a plague of crows troubles the king, for the birds are acting with unusual aggressiveness, even attacking humans. Moreover, there are those among the citizens of Andergast who swear that the crows are bringing them dark nightmares. As the belligerent creatures infiltrate even the castle itself, the king seeks a skilled bird catcher - an opportunity for young Geron to prove that the reputation for ill luck that has followed him since childhood is undeserved.

If you are a point and click adventure fan going through a dry spell, it may be worth picking up Chains of Satinav to fill a winter weekend, when you would just rather stay inside. If you just discover this videogame genre there are far better options out there to immerse yourself in.

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav has glimpses of ingenuity with its puzzle design, it looks great for its age and it has a satisfactory port of a point and click system on the PS4. Unfortunately, the story doesn’t pay off, often feeling disjointed along the way which isn’t helped by some uninspired vocal performances. Hopefully the sequel is better.

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav is an excellent graphic adventure, which we would like to recommend both to novices of the genre and to those who are experienced in this type of games. A game that considering its nature it’s not affected by the passing of the years and indeed is definitely in line with the most recent productions of this genre and which presents a well-written and scripted plot and a dozen hours of puzzles and funny gags between the two protagonists and which can also be appreciated with a joypad in hand and not only in its PC version with mouse and keyboard.
