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.

6 / 10

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.

Review in Russian | Read full review

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

PC players craving a bit of horror during the Summer can't go wrong with Silver Chains, that is, as long as they're okay with something that ultimately comes as feeling a little familiar.
