Disappointing Effort

dcreed42, Ebay

  • Summary: I should've been suspicious when a game that was $40 a short time ago was $7.48 the other day at Target. In reality, I think at $7.48 it's overpriced. The controls are awful. It's as if the developers have never actually played an action game before. The camera motion is even worse.

  • Summary: First and most important reason why I bought this game, was for the great looking graphics and interesting storyline Alone in the Dark series used to have in earlier times. Pherphaps I was terribly wrong with this new Atari release. Its simply a very dissapointing game.

Terrible, absolutely terrible

  • Summary: I had mixed expectations when I came to Alone in the Dark. As one of the few games based around HP Lovecraft's mythos, I was quite keen, but on the flip side, it's had such poor reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect.

  • Summary: I really wanted to liem this game, the story looks good and the game is atmospheric but sadly its just another console port where the developers couldn't be bothered to make the controls work on the PC.

A fundamentally flawed game

V. Warrington "vinniegognitti", Amazon
22 June 2008
  • Summary: As a long time 'AITD' fan (I played through the first three games several times, all those years ago) I was hoping that this resurrection would banish the memory of 'The New Nightmare'. Sadly it was not to be. Firstly, the good points. The game is very atmospheric, and has some fresh ideas.

Diabolical Execution

  • Conclusion: If you are shallow enough to think that visuals actually matter, then buy this game, it does looks lovely. If on the other hand you enjoy the game play more than the eye candy, then steer clear.

so much potential

  • Conclusion: this game could have been great. its so flawed from the weird controls you can tell its a port from the 360. it plays better with a 360 pad. its really buggy in parts chapter 2 is very frustrating. i hope they release a patch to sort out the bugs also a better check ponit system would be good.
