I 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.
The gameplay itself isn't mindblowing, but it doesn't have to be. Still, we can't recommend the game at this moment in time as it's very broken. We sincerely hope that the developers are quick to correct the issues because the state it's in right now is simply embarrassing. If you're a big Blacksad fan, you might be able to look past the problems, but everyone else should wait until the issues are fixed.
Even 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.
