This a great game for anyone out there who likes a challenge. Even if the contraols may be a bit of a struggle, it all combines into a great playing experience. This game is even more effective if you have read any of H.P. Lovecraft's stories. The scare factor is alive and well in this game, as well. This is the only game that has made me scream aloud like a little girl. Definitely worth the money to get it. Has some of the best interactive elements I've ever experienced in a game, like the realistic insanity meter. Also outstanding is the sound of the game, which will have you reeling from the realistic sounding monsters and horrors. Another little appreciated part of this game is the sea-boat levels, which encompass the most realistic sea-tide motion I've ever seen.
