Review: The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav

  • Conclusion: Final Verdict : Chains of Satinav is a worthy game for anyone who enjoys point-and-clicks. Even with the hint system, it's probably not the best choice for beginners, but the story line is compelling and the visuals are artistically brilliant.

  • Summary: The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav is a good game despite itself. The story is traditional, the translated dialogue occasionally awkward, and the gameplay so expected that this could be one of Sierra's greatest hits from 1990. But it's hard to deny the game's all-ages allure.
  • Pros: Likable story and lead character, Challenging adventure-game puzzles that arise naturally from the plot, Solid script and voice acting, Impressive art sets a mood
  • Cons: Stuttering graphics, Numerous translation gaffes

  • Conclusion: Regardless of its technical shortcomings, CoS provides a superbly engaging story driven experience, that feels uniquely its own. When a story makes you care about its characters, it’s a triumph, and in this, Chains of Satinav excels.

  • Excerpt: I actually thought that The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav would be an RPG, given that it's based on one of the most popular pen and paper RPG systems in Europe. But instead I was treated to an old school point and click adventure game. And it reminded me why I used to love them so much.

  • Conclusion: Clocking in at around twelve hours, The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav is a satisfying length in its own right. All story threads are wrapped up by the end, but the credits roll too soon, without providing suitable closure for the main characters.
