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 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.

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.
