A whirling nightmare come to life on the PC. CoC immerses players in what may be considered the happiest of sorrows.
Having been unfamiliar with the novels, I'm unable to say how accurate the world of Lovecraft is portrayed. However, whatever Bethesda has done with it is absolutely fantastic. Although, I'm not sure that the punishing difficulty and incidents of trail and error were apart of this world.
Graphically considered outdated by many reviews, my impressions are more more along the lines of "does the job". A creeping soundtrack throughout leads to the immersion of the fantastic game world.
Worth EVERY hour of game play.
