The 50s, New York City: Joe Dunn, owner of a boxing club, is found dead. Meanwhile, rising star Bobby Yale, due to take to the ring for the most important fight of his career, has mysteriously disappeared. Sonia Dunn, Joe's daughter, takes over the gym and must deal with its financial woes. She hires private detective John Blacksad to investigate Yale's disappearance. This sinister case will take our investigator to the darkest, most dismal depths of New York.
With its anthropomorphic characters and its incredible 1950s feel, BLACKSAD: Under the Skin promises all the eerily dark adventure of a detective novel, just like the eponymous comic book series.

Blacksad: Under The Skin - 14 Minutes Of Cat Detective Gameplay
Positive: 2 out of 10
Mixed: 6 out of 10
Negative: 2 out of 10
Jan 29, 2020Problems aside though Blacksad: Under the Skin is an interesting tale of murder and corruption that presents in one of the best takes on the adventure game formula-multiple endings, choices that really matter, and a cast of characters that are extremely engaging. I never felt like the story was coming out of left field with its ideas, and was shocked when I started figuring out what was happening. I love this game and if the Life Is Strange or one of the many Telltale series has ever been enjoyable, I think there’s a lot of enjoy in Blacksad.
Nov 27, 2019Despite the technical problems and in movements, Blacksad has proved to be a pleasant experience. History keeps interest from the beginning to the end; the characters have character and contribute their involvement in the story; The ability to gather objects and research, make the gameplay more exciting and, in the end, there is a real need to make sound decisions and solve the case successfully.
Nov 18, 2019Blacksad: Under the Skin is a true adaptation of the comic album series created by Juan Diaz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido but delivers an overall frustrating experience due to technical issues.
Dec 3, 2019Blacksad: Under The Skin is a specific case where an overall good game gets totally ruined by the appalling technical side of things. Go for the PC version as it shows a much better finish.
Nov 19, 2019Even if you’re not familiar with Blacksad’s previous adventures, fans of games like L.A. Noire or any of the Telltale adventures will find something to like about Blacksad: Under the Skin. It’s a real shame, then, that the game is so buggy on release. Numerous technical issues really spoil what would otherwise be a very entertaining whodunit.
Nov 25, 2019I 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.

I'm aI gave this game pretty high rating, but I also struggle to recommend it to my friends. It's both amazing and messy at the same time. I'm a fan of a Blacksad comic series, so.. very bias. This game is just like Witcher 1 for CD Projekt Red. Local developers adapting local author. If they don't stop - they will come to Blacksad on Witcher 3 level.
Pros: amazing noir detective story; keeps true to the spirit of the Blacksad comic; I personally did not encounter any game breaking bugs, guess the patches did their work
Cons: clunky controls; performance drops at times; sometimes visually messy… Expand

Plot: a black novel is always very entertaining. Nice characters too
BSO: the best thing in the game.
A lot of bugs
Problems with the controls: sometimes it is very complicated to face and get the x symbol to
The volume goes up and down without you pushing any buttons.
The objects you want to observe are all blurry, why oh why?
Errors in the game that kick you out very often.
I will give it 3 starts because yeah, it has a lot of problems... but it is still nice to play.… Expand

Dec 28, 2019About 15 minutes in and the game crashes. This never should have been released in such a broken, unplayable state. I'm returning for a refund.
