Summary: The games that gave birth to a genre. All of them good Alone in the Dark 1: The beginning of it all. Time has not been kind as the animation is almost comedic today. But I remember at the time when this was new, this game was scary as hell! Puzzles were hard, yet not impossible to figure out. The atmosphere in this game kept you on the edge of your seat almost all the time. This is tru ly the Godfather of Survival Horror.
Summary: Having played this title for over 300 times, I assume you that is a masterpiece. Most horror games inherited AITDs features, first 3D camera movement, GREAT horror music and stuff composed one of the best horror games ever produced. Don't allow a chance to miss it.
Summary: I buy many "older games" since there are so few that are worth $50 or more. This game loaded and updated fine. I played for an hour or so -- it looked really great. I exited the game looking forward to more play the next day. It wouldn't load. I tried every geek trick I know to launch the program even reinstalling it, playing again and having the same issues. The Atari (US)site didn't have any mention of the problem.
Summary: I like the game a lot. You get to run zombies over with cars and drive like a maniac. The fire looks real. But my one criticism is that your in New Yourk and the only weapon you have besides explosive bottles and burning chairs is a handgun....if your in New York, you should have an abundance of police issue shotguns...theres lots of abandoned police cars, you should be able to get a shotgun...and you should be able to kick your enemies too.
Summary: ok I guess I just wanted to give it a chance $2.39 or what ever what the hell why not right??? well when installing it my onecare cought two trojens from it not even kidding!!! one was deleted! well should have taken the point from that, but no had to try it didn't I Grrr!! well the game is more like keyboard button clicking (or slamming) frustration the constant pausing as you are playing to give you more instructions what to do next even if you are already doing it!
Has problems, but not bad when you get the hang of the controls.

Summary: This game can be hard, but once you get the hang of it, it is kind of fun. Cool story, too. Just get used to the controls, and put your own key mappings in, and you should have fun. Great graphics, and cool cut scenes. I paid $10 for this, so I got a good deal. I would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could.
Summary: first of all... i hate the controles!..they really needed alot more beta testers. and it had tons of bugs...more than i can mention! second... i actually kinda liked the story...but they completely ruined the end:(. and i don't particularly like cursing in games. if you'd excuse me...i need to go bash my head against the wall because i purchased this as full price!!! i recommend you look elsewhere for a really creepy rpg.
