Top Critic Average
Silence may just be Daedalic’s finest hour and, minor gripes aside, is the modernisation of the adventure game we’ve all been waiting for.
Silence is a game that can capture through its beautiful graphics and setting and its good soundtrack that makes story stories rich in patos. Obviously, the game is based on the tip and click and may not be appreciated by those who do not like the genre, but lets it play without problems, because it is accompanied by fairly simple puzzles that leave more room for story and narration.

"Misgivings about its narrative shortcomings, occasional dips in voice acting quality and its constant referencing of The Whispered World aside, I’ve found Silence to be thoroughly enjoyable. It’s characters, although not terribly developed are fleshed out enough for the player to be invested. Each location is depicted with overwhelming attention to detail and the characters’ faces are masterfully animated. It’s one of the best-looking games I’ve ever played and it touches on fantasy themes I enjoy greatly, such as dying worlds, fish out of water and battles against overwhelming odds. It’s for this reason that I regret it even more that it wasn’t given the opportunity to further dive into the world and characters and achieve excellence. As it stands it’s just a great, fun journey, albeit a predictable one."
Silence offers an interesting, heartfelt experience, albeit a short one.
Silence is yet another amazing point-and-click game to add to your ‘must buy’ list on the Switch if you like the genre. There’s very little to fault in this Daedalic Entertainment classic, with its excellent voice acting, captivating music, interesting environmental puzzles, and it’s six to eight-hour playtime, you’ll be hooked from the emotional opening all the way to the final choice you have to make. The game is the second in the series yet prior knowledge isn’t required, so don’t let that put you off picking it up either, they simply called it ‘Silence‘ and not The Whispered World 2 for a reason; it’s its own self-contained story.
Silence is good story focused adventure game in a nice looking cartoon coat. Its only downside is its short playing time.

Silence is a smart, inventive fairy tale that draws from the classics and tackles some weighty subject matter.
This is an incredible game that is well worth experiencing, but there’s an elephant in the room [the price].
GOOD - Silence is an adventure game in the point and click genre. The story is interesting and keeps you entertained even though some of the gameplay bits are annoying and don’t work very well. The voice acting and scenery is done very well and helps keep you engrossed. Definitely a good pick if you love this type of game.
