Alone in the Dark 3 review (PC)

  • Excerpt: tries to blend the first game’s unparalleled approach to otherworldly detective work, with the second game’s more lighthearted but equally smart MacGyver-esque sleuthing (and jacked-up combat), in order to arrive at a happy medium. To the credit of the developers, the mixture does reach a medium, but it’s not happy.

Where Dying Is a Fact of Life

  • Conclusion: The guns are actually accurate and effective, but the supply of ammo is limited. You can take swipes at the monsters with various sticks and pipes, but there is some latency in the controls that cause the character to delay the command up to a second or two, and that can cost you some serious health if the creature gets to you first. Invisible walls are common, forcing you through a linear path like a rat in a science experiment.

Alone in the Dark 2

Adventure Classic Gaming
5 November 1997
  • Excerpt: With the success of Alone in the Dark last year, Infogrames attempts to duplicate both the dramatic storytelling and the suspenseful gameplay in this sequel. The original Alone in the Dark is a horror action adventure that is inspired by the work of H P Lovecraft. While Alone in the Dark 2 continues with the supernatural adventures of private investigator Edward Carnby, the sequel unfortunately takes on an unwanted direction by placing too much emphasis on combat arcade...

Alone in the Dark (2008)

  • Summary: Нынешний генеральный директор Atari Фил Харрисон (Phil Harrison) не раз и не два подчеркивал в интервью, что не курировал Alone in the Dark — к его приходу проект уже выполз на финишную прямую. И результат многолетних мытарств Eden Games как нельзя лучше отражает облик «прежней Atari», привыкшей уповать на громкие имена и агрессивный маркетинг в ущерб всему прочему. Спи спокойно, Эдвард Карнби. Пусть твои родители штампуют «казуалки», коли неспособны на большее.

  • Conclusion: Atari har gjort det förut. De är smarta. När ett av deras egna, kommande storspel på förhand mötts av skepsis av en enig (svårflirtad) spelpress - skickas inga recensionsversioner ut innan spelet väl finns ute i butik. Det är smart, frustrerande för oss spelkritiker, men smart. På så sätt får de inga (tidiga) negativa recensioner eller direkta sågningar som kan skrämma köpsugna spelare från att inhandla ett stycke bristfälligt spel.
  • Pros: Klart godkänd grafik, roligt att tillverka sina egna molotov-cocktails
  • Cons: Kantig och styltig spelkontroll, korkad spelmekanik, trist upplägg, värdelös atmosfär, meningslös story, enformigt

  • Conclusion: Når man har anmeldt spill i mange år, er det visse faresignaler man blir oppmerksom på. Ett av disse er når en utgiver nekter å sende deg spillet sitt før lanseringsdatoen. Når de gladelig prater om hvor bra spillet skal bli, hvor storslått det hele er og hvilken fantastisk spillopplevelse jeg har i vente i månedsvis før spillet kommer, men når det endelig nærmer seg lansering blir utgiveren plutselig stum som en østers. Faresignal 1.
  • Pros: Oppsummeringen når du laster inn et lagret spill
  • Cons: Klønete styring, tregt, føles gammeldags, elendig skuespill, frustrerende spilmekanikk.
