  • Summary: There were some innovative ideas used in this game but they didn't work for me. I spent too much time trying to get use to the awkward PC controls. The frequent need to switch between 1st and 3rd person views was the biggest problem.

Maybe it's me!

  • Summary: If they fixed the controls, so the charactor would handle correctly. So that the game wouldn't keep throwing you into 3rd person. OR another idea! Make 3rd person play correctly, meaning that you can control the charactor with the mouse. Then the game IMHO would be a winner.
  • Pros: The Story and the graphics are good. But that is where good ends.
  • Cons: I don't know where they got the control system? The game allows you to go into first person which works ok. BUT it won't stay in fist person. It goes into what I guess Atari or somebody considers third person? I see the charactor, but can't control him with my mouse, you need to use the wsad keys...

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, 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.

  • Excerpt: I was recommended this game by a friend, who rated it highly. Unfortunately my views are not quite the same. Although the game does come with a huge chunky manual, it proved not to be much help for this confusing game.

  • Excerpt: I bought this game expecting something rather special given the reputation of the Civilisation games. I should point out that having never played 'Civ' I came to this with a very open mind. The graphics were a little blocky and cumbersome but that was to be expected in this kind of game.

  • Excerpt: Jogabilidade horrivel, eu ja tentei joga lo varias vezes mas nunca consigo ficar mais q 40 min jogando, até usando o controle continua chato e ruim, enfim, será perca de tempo jogar esse game, sem tira o stress q ira passar com alguns bugs e jogabilidade horrivel.
