    This is one of those PS1 games I wish I still had the opportunity to play once in a while. It wasn't seen by many as a very original piece, but to me it was, simply because for the horror genre, there was nothing else li... Read Full Review

    This is one of the most underrated games around!!

    A fighter with little else

    I'm the kind of that likes a good dark game, one that will scare me to my wits end and wanting more. What I don't like are fighters, hit this button then another and another still to overcome your enemy! BBOORRIINGG! and... Read Full Review
