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: "don't bother buying this one it'll drive you mad, i did and i'm away with the birds. Twweet twwwweeeeeet tweet see what i mean. seriously though, this is a rubbish game not worth even mentioning, you spend all your time trying to control this useless wee man thing and his movements and exploits just drive you mad wit frustration. he won't do as he is bid and it takes him ages before he actually moves from place to place. Spend you money on something ...
Excerpt: "AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH hang on while I chuck this game out the window, there it goes right down to the water below. This is a terrible game, the story seems ok but I found the control toooooooo slow and I felt like yelling at the wee man to get a move on. The control of the wee man was too ackward and you would need the patience of a saint to play it One of these games that I struggled to stay awake with, even my nephews would not play it. ...
Pros: nice picture on the front of the box
Cons: Open the box and the crap spills out, it just gets worse from there on in

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.
