    Complete and utter garbage

    This game is one of the most annoying games i have ever played and i have played a lot of games in my time. This game has most likely the worst controls i have ever seen in a video game. the shooting mechanics are broken... Read Full Review

    What a show!

    I don't know what to say. All the bad reviews about this game are so unfair. OK, it is a little hard to control the character in 3rd angle view and, OK, game has some bugs (not too much), but come on. Graphics are... Read Full Review

    It's a great game if you get used to the control...

    I've noticed the scores for this game and I have noticed they were poor and so I have decided to give it a try. The storyline is, let's say, imbued with a Biblical topic. You, the hero, must save the world. Therefore you... Read Full Review

    Fails to live up to it's potential.

    Audio: 7/10 Solid voice acting. Solid sound effects. Solid soundtrack. Visuals: 6/10 Visuals look fine for the most part but I agree with the Gamespot review when it said that the quality of the visuals are far too ... Read Full Review

    A nice return to classic surival horror with a modern twist.

    First of all, this is a good game that you will probably enjoy if your a fan of the old-school survival horror genre. It kind of has a resident evil 4 sytle but at the same time also keeps elements found in original surv... Read Full Review

    This game was looking so promising and all. After playing through the 1st minute I assumed the developers where drunk.

    The menu loads up, and it looks brilliant.. then you press the X button on the chapters screen and you discover that you can go to the final chapter!? What the hell where the developers doing at the moment of the releas... Read Full Review

    Excellent plot and an even greater atmosphere. But that's all. Terrible controls, awful camera. Only for patient gamers!

    Excellent plot and an even greater atmosphere. But that's all. Terrible controls, awful camera. Only for patient gamers! Great, inovative ideas that go without support. Alone in the Dark (only nominally connected to i... Read Full Review

    Could have been better, a lot better!

    I love horror/suspense games and I've had a little experience with the alone in the dark series and its protagonist Edward Carnby. I found this latest incarnation for a cheap price and despite hearing some subpar review... Read Full Review

    Patience

    After playing the first few level, I was excited about this game, as I kept playing, I tried to overlook the flaws and really wanted this game to work. By the third or fourth level, I just gave up. It starts out awes... Read Full Review

    An ambitious underperformer.

    "What's in a name?" Juliet ponders in the second act of Shakespeare's timeless love story. It's an interesting quote, perhaps even a philosophical spur, not to take things at face value. After all, a name is just that: a... Read Full Review
