    Obscure

    A lighthearted horror game

    Sure, it isn't deep in any way, and the story isn't very disturbing. But, this is a highly enjoyable game mainly because of it's campy storyline and accessible gameplay. The game unfolds in an American high school whe... Read Full Review

    A pretty solid strategy RPG, but not the masterpiece it could have been.

    Story: The story is pretty good and deals with themes like ecology and politics, not unfamiliar territory in this genre. I enjoyed it to a degree, but it is not as involving as other games in the genre like Final Fantasy... Read Full Review
