What a game! I usually love different, hard games, eg. Civilization, Hitman, (not all of them), Stalker...etc.
Now different has been mistaken with boring or "not quite there" in the past so I was a little worried before buying it.
If you love to be immersed in a game, hear your own heart beat and be ready to be spooked to death, this is your game....
Story is great as well, and sometimes harsh (unless you are a maniac serial killer)
Graphics are very good, sometimes the fog is pixelled a little but probably that;'s just my video card (GTX 560), although I couldn't care less, I was panicking with a brute behind me in a foggy room to the point I had to remind myself "IT IS JUST A GAME"
Sound it's part of it, and wouldn't be a good scary game without proper sound atmosphere....reminded me of Stalker oppressiveness at times.
