    Awesome set pieces, and a decent all-round gaming experience makes this a great budget game.

    This was the first game I have ever played in the 'Alone in the Dark' series, and from the moment I played the demo, I knew I would have to get it. The very odd plot is pretty hard to follow, but in ...

    Stunning visuals and sound effect are wiped out by crappy control glitches

    Being a fan of survival horror, I was really looking forward to this version of the game, particularly after it was touted as fixing whatever was broken in the original release. I popped in the game a...

    Definitely for fans of the genre.

    While Alone in the Dark is a great cinematic game that engrosses the player in an immersive world of evil and nightmares. The problem is that the PS3 version doesn't do much to make up for it's origin...

    I'm not saying this game has it all, but it is one of the few next gen survival horror games!

    Rated on January 08, 2010 by JoeBigfoot

    Survival horror is a dying genre, for some reason game developers have decided that brain dead (pardon the pun) action can compensate for a lack of depth, atmosphere and emotion (i'm looking at you Re...

    Alone in the Dark is an action horror game with memorable cinematic moments but it could use some improvement

    Alone in the Dark: Inferno is an action horror game that attempts to create an open world and an all purpose physics engine. It also comes with a series of high adrenaline boss fights and cinematic se...

    So...terrible

    Rated on January 16, 2010 by tonyc21

    There are so many things wrong with this game. The only reason I didn't rate it lower is because of the graphics. The story makes no sense and both possible endings are cliffhangers. The zombie-like c...

    If control issues were fixed this would have been a perfect game.

    Rated on February 01, 2010 by jjivey

    First off i bought this game for $8 used at a gamestop and honestly picked it for a easy platinum. I figured i was getting into a bad game and would have to force myself to play it through. I was ve...

    Whoever designed the controls must have been alone in the dark!

    Rated on February 20, 2010 by alcaclarke

    Could've been cool but turned into a big joke! This game had potential. I know it's been out for years but it looked interesting for $10 in the bargain bin. I read some reviews, checked out some image...

    Great ideas, but even though it's been refined since it's 360 release, it still feels rushed and quite bland.

    Rated on February 21, 2010 by Amir29

    Although the Alone In The Dark franchise introduced the Survival Horror genre to gamers, it lies in the shadow of Resident Evil. This installment shows us why. I respect a developer that takes chan...
