Chaos on Deponia
Top Critic Average
considering Rufus isn't much of a likable character, it gets annoying to listen to him.
Chaos on Deponia will guarantee you a few hours of fun far removed from the usual titles. With a few lines of dialogue and a superb humour, it's a gaming experience that we recommend you even if you like more or less the "Point & Click" genre.

Chaos on Deponia is an excellent point and click game that really suits PS4 - which was already the case with Deponia. It is visually superb and displays some fantastic arts and is really fun. We wish it could have brought some bonus like artworks with it.

Chaos On Deponia is a fun game, albeit with its flaws. The story is fun and is a nice adventure for families to enjoy together. The writing here is okay and the puzzles are fun but way too easy, they lack the depth that other games from this genre have. Overall you may enjoy this story if you have children and they are looking for their first video game experience, otherwise I would avoid picking this game up if you are expecting a great adventure like the Double Fine games.
If you've got the patience, Chaos on Deponia's charming world is worth a visit, it's just a shame about the company.
Witty, charming, and full of personality, Chaos on Deponia is an incredibly endearing point and click adventure that will make audiences forget they have been playing with a controller the entire time. Moving with the analogue stick is incredibly fluid and cycling through hotspots with either the shoulder buttons or the right analogue is an inspired decision that completely negates the need for a mouse. Puzzle solving still feels natural and the new control scheme never gets in the way of the action. With a hilarious script, beautiful animation, and fantastic voice direction, Chaos on Deponia is as enjoyable in 2017 as it was in 2012.
Chaos on Deponia is a great addition to the Deponia saga, whether you have played the original or not. Its humour doesn't appear to be to everyone's liking but I personally found it very funny and a pleasure to play. I would strongly recommend picking up the first game in the series and playing through that first in order to fully understand everything which happens in this one – it isn't necessary but it will help introduce you to the characters in more detail.
I find it hard to say much more about Chaos on Deponia. It definitely worth playing. It ticks all the boxes for those looking for something which harkens back to the old LucasArts adventures. It ticks all the boxes for those looking for a fun new adventure game. And it ticks all the boxes for those looking to sink into point-and-click style adventures. It is an all-round good experience, one you should expect for Daedelic.
Chaos on Deponia is even better than Deponia itself. It's even more funny, even more satisfying and still involving us in wild adventure to save the planet. Again.
