    Eternal Darkness is a good survival horror game that does a great job of messing with the players mind.

    Okay so we all know Nintendo is mostly known for their family friendly titles. However Eternal Darkness changed all that and proved that Nintendo could scare you just as well as anybody else. Of course the real makers of... Read Full Review

    Like a fine wine, only quicker. By that I mean it "gets better with age". Probably the best thing about Eternal Darkness is that, unlike most games, it does not show its hand in the first 10 minutes of play. Instea... Read Full Review

    Why aren't there more like this?

    The presentation of the story is amazing. Immersive and captivating while not seeming drawn out. I felt like I was in the movie "From Beyond" where I was never sure what was going to come out next. Seriously, the enem... Read Full Review

    While Eternal Darkness has its flaws, rarely has a game achieved such originality and depth.

    I had really been dying to play this game - I had heard so much about it - it even received a coveted Editor's Choice award from Gamespot, a company that I have found to be nearly flawless in their reviews. Now, I wil... Read Full Review

    My personal favorite game ever! A more cerebral side of Nintendo (Silicon Knights). THE GAME IS ABSOLUTELY
