If you're into comic albums, chances are you already know the excellent series Blacksad by Juanjo Guarnido and Juan Díaz Canales. If you don't, go to the nearest library and borrow the 5 albums immediately. Blacksad: Under the Skin is the video game adaptation of the series but it features a completely original story. Developed by famous Spanish studio Pendulo, we hoped the game would deliver when it got released in December. unfortunately, it clearly came out too soon considering the number of technical problems it suffered from. The PC version was even stuck with a choppy 30 fps framerate until recently. Also to blame was the sluggish controls when it came to moving the character around and, in our humble opinion, the main character's voice, which sounds a lot better in French for once (just give the French video a try and compare). Things have improved a bit since release, but mainly in the technical department as far as we can tell.
