One of the best games ever made.

  • Summary: Eternal Darkness will do down as one of the best games ever made, and if I had a top ten best games of all time list, it'll be at the top 5 no doubt about it. This game messes with your head, and is more about its affect on the human mind rather than survival. usually in games a lack of guns would out me off but for some reason in Eternal Darkness the game seems to work better without guns, although there are some guns in some areas of the game, they should not be relied...

Try to stay sane as you Fight Evil through the Ages

  • Excerpt: "Eternal Darkness promised a new horror experience that would run far deeper than simple shock tactics. While comparisons to Resident Evil are inescapable, they aren’t all that justified. Resident Evil relied heavily on sudden shocks to make you jump and get your pulse racing. Eternal Darkness rarely uses such tactics, instead utilising a sustained atmosphere of suspense and horror. You start the game as Alexandra Roivas, who is called by police to ...
  • Pros: 'Sanity Meter' offers innovative shocks, Combat system allows you to chop limbs off the undead
  • Cons: Dated graphics, Somewhat clunky controls

Be prepared for a different concept in gaming...

  • Summary: I'm surprised that more people havent rated this game? it was very popular at the time and seems to be hard to come by second hand now that people know they can play Gamecube games on the Wii. Ok so where do we start...ive bought this game (again) after getting my Wii as sometimes you just want a bit of retro gaming! saying that this game holds up quite well on the graphics side of things. The game is an adventure with typical puzzles e.g. setting the time on a clock.

Definitely one of the best survival horror titles and will be talked about for years to come.

  • Summary: One of the first handfuls of games to be released on the GameCube, Eternal Darkness (ED) promised an epic storyline and gory gameplay, and so kept many players eager to get their hands on this next-gen title. Its theme of horror and the supernatural made ED take a firmly mature stance as a game in contrast to "family-friendly" Nintendo titles.

  • Summary: One of the most impressive early games on the Gamecube, successful because it offered a genuinely scary alternative to Resident Evil, but has sadly been overlooked. Graphically the game is not so impressive, as it was originally intended for the N64 and has in places just been adapted to suit the Gamecube.

The Darkness Comes

Jaster, Ciao
22 June 2007
  • Excerpt: "...the original resident evil games. Eternal Darkness also uses a Magick system in which you have to find and combine different Rune stones to make spells and in turn the spells are used to do a wide range of tasks from setting off traps to opening hidden doors. When playing Eternal Darkness you will at times feel like you are playing a fusion of runescape and resident evil. What I noticed while playing this game is thatit is a real sdventure game.The ...
  • Pros: Graphics and somewhat complex level design
  • Cons: You can't figure the game out till the end

Addicted to going mad!!

  • Summary: The title of this post says it all really, once you start to play the game it quickly becomes addictive even when your sanity is slowly being removed. This is what me and my friend found when 'borrowing' someone's Gamecube we couldn't put the game to rest until some ridiculous time in the morning.

Nintendo go dark to great effect

Simon J. Whight "fourfourfun", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Nintendo's first foray into the more adult orientated game. Hard to think isn't it that one of the main players has firmly stuck to its 'Family Orientated' policy up until this point. The survival horror bug has bitten here and something a bit sinister has come from the usually bouncy Nintendo. Eternal Darkness isn't so much a Resident Evil clone, as it would be easy to pigeon hole it as such, but more of an expansive gothic horror.

Eternal Darkness

  • Summary: Made in 2002 by silicon knights, Eternal Darkness isn't for the feint hearted. Graphics Has an N64 angle because the game originally being made on that format, then with the release of the Gamecube, Silicon Knights gave it a new lick of paint here and there. The problem with the parts they didn't do really show up. A few cutscenes have a few graphical glitches, but wont stutter or lose a frame. Sound An excellent background track through out that really sets the mood.

Engrossing

  • Summary: Eternal Darkness is a very interesting and engrossing game. The graphics are impressive, the storyline is good, the background music is perfect. I liked the way the adventure was split into distinct chapters, each set in a different year, with a separate character for each one - it also gave a perspective across history that was an interesting dimension.
