Face your Destiny!

In Andergast, whose inhabitants are considered to be notoriously superstitious, King Efferdan awaits a state visit from high-ranking dignitaries. For centuries the kingdom has been at odds with neighboring Nostria, but now first steps are being undertaken toward a lasting peace. But a plague of crows troubles the king, for the birds are acting with unusual aggressiveness, even attacking humans. Moreover, there are those among the citizens of Andergast who swear that the crows are bringing them dark nightmares. As the belligerent creatures infiltrate even the castle itself, the king seeks a skilled bird catcher - an opportunity for young Geron to prove that the reputation for ill luck that has followed him since childhood is undeserved. Following an audience with the king, the prestigious task is assigned to him. However, not only does his task prove unexpectedly difficult, but it also turns out to be the first step of the greatest adventure of his life, which will lead him to the borders of the charted lands of Aventuria and beyond.

At first, I wasn't really convinced, but I kept playing and quickly fell in love with this incredible point and click adventure. The story is captivating, the characters are endearing and the background drawings are beautiful. This is probably one of my favourite Daedalic's game. Recommended, without hesitation.

This is a game that I started probably a year ago, then got distracted by other games, and finally came back to a few days ago and finished. What does that say about this game? Not too much....I started this on the heels of playing a couple other point and clicks such as Primordia and realized that I wasnt ready to commit the time to it at that point. Recently, I started really craving a good point and click tough, so I came back to the game, and I am glad I did.

Set in the Dark Eye universe (which many other games such as the Drakensangs, Blackguards also hail), gives it a sort of muted, middle ages with mysticism feel to it, which held true in this game. It's a really interesting setting in my opinion. You play as Geron, a bird catchers apprentice whose master is slain for his participation in the burning of an evil prophet 13 years prior to the events of the game, and his knowledge of the presumed dead prophets plans to destroy the world as we (they) know it. This is actually not dissimilar to the Blackguards story line actually. Anyway, you end up meeting and falling in love with a beautiful faerie and embark on an adventure to save the world, even though you really dont know how. The story finishes with room for a sequel, but with enough resolution to not require it, which was a nice way to handle it.

So, this is a point and click adventure. How does it stack up? I felt it was pretty good overall. There were a couple frustratingly difficult puzzles (most notably in the faerie realm, for me at least) and a few super simple puzzles, but most were just right: they required some thought and trial and error, but not to the point of frustration or leaving you feeling bored. I thought it did what it intended overall, and was pretty well par for the Daedalic course. It didnt really stray from their adventure formula, but managed to stay interesting the whole way through.

All told, I would give it 7 out of 10. Nothing too extraordinary, but a pretty good game overall.

After playing some of the other games available these days and seeing the prices they are charging I have to change my initial recommendation for this game. There is a lot of content hear for you to explore and the story is a little weak at times, but overall it has a solid amount of challenging puzzles and interesting environments for you to interact with.

The reason I rated it down at first and my continuing problems with it are that the puzzles often have an element to them that requires you to pixel hunt the screens for quite some time to find them or use the hint feature (essentially cheating for a player who plays these kinds of games a lot). One or two is fine, but the consistency of the issue left a bad taste in my mouth. The other issue I had was that the main characters were very unlikable to me. Especially the protagonist. While a bit of negativity and "anti-hero" character can lend some authenticity to an otherwise cardboard cutout, he was downright miserable and his choices that I could not control left me with little sympathy for him or connection to him.

The reason I have redone this review is that, fundamentally, this was a good game marred with exactly the kind of things that can ruin a game for me. However, they are MY buttons and after stepping back a bit it is clear that they were really not enough for a bad recommendation.

As expected of Daedalic Entertainment -- another fantastic game among their legendary line of epic point and click adventure games.

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav is a game I highly recommend. The art is so beautiful and vivid that it is as if I am playing a point and click game on a canvas that develops fantastically as the story progresses that it belongs in a museum.

Not only is the art which masterfully changes from cheerful to dark with impeccable precision a reason to pick up this game but also the soundtrack (violins, angelic chorus, harps, guitars and a variety of other musical instruments) and voice acting are spot on with precision accuracy only seen in the military (May only apply to one branch).
Most importantly, the puzzles (as expected of a Daedalic game) range from "just right" to "just stupid hard" with a rewarding sense of feeling unreplicable by other games (that is of course, it is a Daedalic game).

The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav has some rpg elements in the form of dialogues but the consequences of your decisions are immediate and are in no way long term. But, being that it is, it definitely renders a second and even a third play through.

I would like to extend this review to several pages length but I want to get back to playing the game. :)
