Critic Reviews for Silver Chains

Silver Chains feels like an homage to every popular horror game and film. While this isn't necessarily a negative, I feel like the potential and individuality of the game was lost amidst the references and tropes, making it feel forgettable. If you have a love for horrors, then I believe you'll thoroughly enjoy Silver Chains, but I'm not so sure you'll remember it.

Silver Chains is an intriguing game set in a good old mansion haunted by ghosts and evil spirits. Its eerie atmosphere will keep you on the edge of your seat as you unravel the mysteries of this ancestral home and the madness that devoured it. Unfortunately, the experience is also marred by a framerate that frequently dips below 30 fps and bugs that will force you to load an earlier save state.

Silver Chains is a nice, sometimes predictable and too linear game for one evening with a disappointing ending, but having a certain appeal and magic. If not the last third of the game with poorly made chases, boring collecting items and poor navigation, there would be a different score.

It took me around three hours to complete Silver Chains, and if you’re looking for a distraction for an evening you could do worse – but you could also do so, so much better.There are a couple of interesting moments scattered around, apart from the aforementioned maze there’s quite a nice moment in the opening minutes involving a record player and a door slamming and an interesting dream sequence later on, but these moments are rare.

Silver Chains has a spooky atmosphere and an interesting, if typical, narrative. But its horrifying performance issues and the completely horrible final sequence put a pretty big damper on the game as a whole.

‎Among the numerous horror games that are produced every year, characterized by low budgets that end up leading to medium-high returns, there are always a few productions that stand out from the trend of the moment. These are especially noteworthy cases, because horror ‎‎is one of the most conservative genres‎‎ in terms of formal, plot and stylistic conventions, which go through stages of uniform production until the formula is exhausted and move on to the next trend. Therefore, they are a grateful find for jaded players.‎

Mundane exploration mars the experience of Silver Chains, a haunted-house horror game which compromises a decent narrative with frustrating gameplay.

Silver Chains is a boring, confused horror game plagued by excessive clichés, jump scares and uninspired gameplay that fails to compel the player forward in any meaningful way
