Don't Waste your Money, Time, or Effort with this Pig.

Summary: One of the Worst Games I Played. Constant automatic Switching between 1st Person & 3rd. Awkward Movement & Far too many Cutscenes. Ironically the Original MSDOS version of this game was better.Good Thing I only paid 5 bucks for this paperweight, Although I wish I had my $5 back. I would only recommend if You have no other games to play & nothing else to do, But be prepared for constant frustrations.
Summary: Alone in the dark for the p.c has got to be one of the worst games i have ever purchased.The controlls are buggy and extreamly annoying.The graffix were not too bad but they tried to give too many diffrent camera angels that left me dizzy and disorentated spinning in a constant 360 circles trying to regain my composure.I really was looking forward to this game having played the series back in the day.I am extreamly dissapointed with atari.i give this game a very low...
Summary: This game is without a doubt the worst game I have ever had the displeasure of playing. The camera is constantly changing from first to third person, and back again. The controls are terrible. They have you using the mouse, WASD, and the print screen button at the same time! What kind of idiot would ever think using the print screen button is a good idea?
Another poor portation and fine example of hideous interface

Conclusion: Yet another perfect example of poor, border line foul gaming for the PC. Whilst the graphics are reasonble and the story seems gripping, the gameplay is sloppy and the controls are atrocious. Unless you are a fan of the Alone in the Dark seriers, which I once was, do not buy this. The Xbox version isn't any better either, unfortunately console gaming breeds laziness in developers.
Excerpt: this is a follow up on civilisation, this rendition is so similar to the 2nd civ that there is no point in buying it, the only differences r sum diplomacy ones and that u r in space, so sum of the units r different. if u had the original and didnt get the 2nd one then this is worth buying but if u have the second one (now very old) then do not bother with this game, it will be a waste of your money Nacrunin
Excerpt: I felt that after Civilisation 2 the next release from Sid Meier's in a Civilisation format was going to be superb, and that's what the magazines said. However when i played it i found it a complete bore. It had too many stupid complications which made no sense. Sid Meire's tried to make their game of Civilisation 2 more complicated and into the future but for me it simply didn't work. It was so dull because you didn't have the faintest idea what you were doing.

Summary: "Alone In The Dark", so der Titel einer (meiner Meinung nach) besonders in den 1990ern wirklich guten Abenteuer-/Rollenspielserie, wurde 2008 unter der Egide von Atari nochmals mit einem neuen Abenteuer auf den Markt gebracht - Handlungsort: der New Yorker Central Park. Kann der Titel überzeugen ? So kam ich zu "Alone In The Dark" (2008) Bei Mediamarkt fand ich das Spiel als PC-DVD Rom für 3,49 € auf der Spiele-Ramschtheke.
