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 is a fantastic point-and-click adventure game that does not feel at all 9-years old. I played this on the Xbox and it was a great experience, though the control mechanisms were clunky from time to time. The hand-drawn art is amazingly detailed and with the game’s music, sets the mood perfectly.

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.

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.
