BLACKSAD: Under the Skin
Blacksad: Under the Skin has a wonderful story, setting, and set of characters, and it clearly loves its source material. I just wish it also loved my time, as I often found it wasted by pixel hunting, pointless choices, and tons of glitches.

Good adventure game, however nos as good as original comics. There should be better controls and memorable characters.

Blacksad: Under the Skin is an exciting adventure game that will take you back to the 50s. Only in the technical implementation there are flaws that cloud the overall picture of the game. Apart from that, Blacksad entertains well and offers some entertaining hours, especially for fans of detective stories.

Unaware of its absurdity, Blacksad: Under The Skin fails at much of what it attempts
Blacksad: Under the Skin is a decent detect-'em-up that lacks a bit of noir style.
Blacksad: Under the Skin is a game that detective fans will like with a new case that could be taken from the original comics, but the technical problems weigh too much on the final result and we will see if in the future they can be solved .

I really, really wanted to like Blacksad: Under the Skin. I love the original graphic novels and just wanted this to be an interactive version of that. Perhaps it could have been, but we're unlikely ever to know thanks to a torrent of technical faults that kill any enjoyment it might give. Pendulo Studios need to urgently fix nearly every aspect of Blacksad: Under the Skin on PS4, and until they do that, this is one mystery best left unsolved.
A bad game that ruins a beautiful, brand new story of the most famous noir-cat in the world. Blacksad is better than ever, and "Under the Skin" is potentially the spin-off that every fan could dream of. As a game, unfortunately, it lacks of polishness, with terrible camera and controls, too much obvious and guided deductive mechanics and unconvincing pacing. Too many bugs sadly complete the mess.

Overall, despite all the frustrations, I enjoyed being a broody detective cat. I just wish the game itself was as strong as the story it was trying to tell.
