    So Far, So Good, and So WoW!

    I'm just about 1/3 through the game... in the catacombs below the church. I'm liking this game more and more. Substance and overall presentation more than make up for the outdated graphics. It is truly scary, eerie - ... Read Full Review

    This game is a challenge, and quite often makes you forget you're playing a game. Instead, you're put into a world you feel more like you're experiencing. While the graphics are not top of the line anymore, they're ve... Read Full Review

    I can't believe they still do that in this civilized age!

    This game has graphics that shouldn't be allowed after Half-Life 2, combined with a noise effect that can't be turned off, and it lacks subtlety, as well, but those are things that I could forgive. What I can't forgive ... Read Full Review
