    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.

    Silver Chains succeeds because, rather than piling on the terror, it leaves you to dwell on the thoroughly unsettling situation you’re in.

    It's a mediocre horror game with a lot meaningless jump scares.

    Silver Chains is a mundane haunted house saunter with all the twists and turns you would expect in a premise like this. Even though there is some chilling ambience in there, its short duration, meagre evocative moments and easy puzzles constitute a rather unexceptional experience.

    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.

    As gamers, we have visited many haunted houses, but that of Silver Chains is not among the most interesting or among the most disturbing ones.

    Apart from a few pulse-pounding moments in an otherwise generic haunted house story, the weakest link in Silver Chains is that it’s just not very scary or engaging enough to survive as an adventure game otherwise.

    This is a big failure for Cracked Head Games, but it might lead them not to repeat the same mistakes in their next project.

    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.

    Mundane exploration mars the experience of Silver Chains, a haunted-house horror game which compromises a decent narrative with frustrating gameplay.
