The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav
Wow! This game is probably the worst I've played ever. Not even worth the on sale price.
Don't believe the good reviews.

Yes, this game is intelligent, beautiful, with a great story line, and great characters. Absolutely worthy of the adventure Hall of fame. The graphics are so good I had people commenting positively on them from behind my back as I played (in the train). The puzzles are challenging and a few times you get stuck, but not impossible. Generally, the challenges follow a logic, you just have to find the logic.
Dialogue goes on and on about inane mythology of this realm; puzzles are ludicrous (the Queen's three impossible tasks will prompt you to smash your computer). You get many hours of gameplay, but as the game and the absurd puzzles went on and on I cared less and less about the characters or the mission, especially because as the puzzles became more and more contrived I had less and less confidence that patience and logic would suffice to figure them out. When you have many sites available and an inventory full of objects, and the correct solution requires several crucial steps that are strictly arbitrary ("why does the colour-stone have to be back on the basin to make the path appear??") it becomes frustrating, not enjoyable.
