Alone In The Dark

  • Summary: The mouse is rather sensitive, and I haven't found a way to change that. There are quite a bit of controls to remember for PC but other than that a great game with good graphics and a good storyline so far.

a fun adventure game

  • Summary: The Alone in the Dark series has always been an adventure series. To all those who have played The Quest for Glory games, Alone in the Dark is not that much different except that it has a horror theme. You find items and you must use them to solve puzzles. There is some fighting, but for the most part it is not an essential part of the plot or storyline. The storyline, as stated very clearly by the creators, is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft.

So far so good.

  • Conclusion: I haven't got that far into the game just yet but I have to say it's a brilliant game. The graphics are stunning and the custom weapons are pure genius especially the mosquito spray/lighter combo. One qualm so far is the mouse controls. I have the game on just about the lowest sensitivity and still the slightest nudge of the mouse will have you doing a 180. Definatly off-putting.

Alone In The Dark : Central Park mystery

  • Excerpt: "...Crowley. Gameplay : The gameplay in Alone In The Dark differs greatly from the previous games in the series. It is separated in 'episodes' like a DVD movie, where the player can choose to start the game from the beginning, or choose to skip to a section, should players skip a chapter, a cut-scene from the previous chapter will be played to explain the story. Controls (for PC version) are quite frustrating at first as it uses both keyboard ...
  • Pros: Great game overall
  • Cons: In game controls a bit complex

Alone very alone

  • Excerpt: "...Many people have criticised the Alone in the Dark series for its control system but I find this a little hard to understand. For me it is simple to use, intuitive, and works well. The only real problem comes when fine aiming is needed for throwing things, or aiming a gun. At one stage you must throw a bottle in a narrow passageway, with a wall of spikes at your back, and getting that bottle to avoid the sides of the hallway was a task worthy of nightmares. ...
  • Pros: Controls and sound are good
  • Cons: nearly the same as the other two games

  • Excerpt: "ALONE IN THE DARK ----------------- The year 1996, and the first Resident Evil game was released, the original Survival Horror game!! Nope sorry that wasnt the first was it? No this game was, four years before! way back in the dark ages of 1992. Yep for all of those people that thought Resident Evil created a genre, you are all sadly mistaken, what R.E did was 'borrow' a lot of ideas from this game and add a few nicer graphics. This game ...
  • Pros: Scary, first in the genre .

  • Excerpt: "In this game you choose between two detectives to play(it really makes no difference, just a man and a woman who looks like a duck). You are investigating the suicide of a man in an old house. The FMV sequence shows you getting dropped off outside the house and advancing into it towards the attic where the man supposedly died. Surprisingly nothing happens to you as you walk all through the house and finally arrive in the attic. This is where ...
  • Pros: Great and haunting 3d design for such an old game, free !  and the music is sooo scary
