Yes, start with River of Time. It's a great game. Just don't be shocked that the Dakensangs are nice, friendly and colourful. Drakensang was good too, but TRoT fixed ca. the 10 most often requested things the community wanted. Everything is at least a bit better, and especially the endless walking is nearly gone.

The controls are identical. If one of the manuals is missing you can simply use the other one. Right-click on everything for tool tips and often more detailed explanations than in the manual.

You have to understand that The Dark Eye is a complex RPG system. You have to give it time to open up. Things may feel limited in the beginning, but there is enough substance to add new spells and skills for 30-50 hours.
