    Great premise, but lack of variety, bugs and an unclear story taints the effect.

    Horror fans rejoice !! One of the scariest and most excellent low budget games that i have played lately.

    Slender The Arrival is a terrifying experience. Every time you play, you're wracked with tension with this game. In the game you're a regular person, armed with nothing more but a flashlight and a ...

    Why is this popular?

    Rated on April 15, 2013 by Helgast

    Graphics seem divine, good FP qualities, intriguing completely such a mysterious and new franchise, should be scarier

    Rated on April 30, 2013 by PIG_etb

    Hate to see such a beautiful idea rock up with sick graphics as a waste of time. Already impressed with the screenshots, the FP positioning seems appropriate and got me really excited to be scared in ...

    This is a good game. But not what people should buy.

    Rated on June 05, 2013 by sonicfreak375

    This is a game that I had mixed signals with. It was the same feel of Slender: The Eight Pages. I hated the fact that it was all collecting and no actual jump scares. It was the exact same as the orig...

    The experience of Slender: The Arrival is much like that of opening a Christmas present that you'll never love

    Rated on July 20, 2013 by Crunchyflies

    Much like the original Slender, Slender: The Arrival has a bone chilling atmosphere, a well done sense of loneliness, and the rare appearance of the Slender Men that keeps the player tensed up till it...
