    This was worth every penny. I played the game twice through, and I never do that. Fun, fun, fun!

    I saw some bad reviews when the game first came out, and I waited for a while, but the reviews changed, so I gave it a chance. I was thrilled from the get-go! The voice acting was good, the opening ...

    Oh, man! Even my friends, who're only watching me play, channeled the tension and the fear that I genuinely felt!

    Pretty good horror survival, once you get used to the ofset 3rd person view. Reminded me of The Suffering and The Thing.
