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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: The game interface is the same as the previous two episodes. You control your character's movement with the arrow keys and select items with the enter key. 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.
Excerpt: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri is a futuristic, turn based strategy game in which you command a legion in attempt to take over the planet You research technologies to upgrade your troops and build better artillery. You can communicate with the other legions to declare war, alliance, exchange goods or even demand that they pay you. You can choose details about the planet, the size of the planet and the game rules before the game begins.
Excerpt: Are you enjoyed you the introduction? Well, then comincìamo immediately. Only a puntualizzazione: you often save, rather thick. The explosion of the gate has stunned the guardia.Aspettate that rise again and hurt you her. I recommend a series of headings. You take the Thompson, the water bottle (if drunk you reìntegra of ten points of energy) and the ricaricatore.
Excerpt: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri is a thinly veiled Civilization 3, which is only fair since he created the first two, right? Set in the near future, the people of Earth have trashed the planet and an expedition has been sent to Alpha Centauri to see if it is habitable. Along the way, the people around start bickering and split into seven factions. They reach a habitable world orbiting Alpha Centauri (simply called Planet).
Excerpt: Although most of you may not be used to the "Turn Based Strategy" genre, you can still enjoy this game. As a matter of fact, Alpha Centauri was my first Turn Based Strategy game that I have ever played. Story: I cannot begin to start with the story for it is too deep for me to fit it all in this small Review. The basic idea for the story is that you are sent down to set up a colony and mine for resources on an inhabited planet.
Excerpt: This game is the Civilization concept set on another planet. The graphics are cooler, and their is flexiblity in creating weapons and the such. I like the United Nations concept, but some of the dialog, especially when you discover something new is kind of irritating. It's usually something pretentious. It's a little harder to master and learn than Civ2, so it will take longer to get bored with it than Civ2.
