  • Summary: kind of wish I knew about steam before buying the game, but it's still good. Haven't had the motivation to continue playing for after about two hours.

Too boring and slow-paced

  • Summary: I tried to play this, I really did. The first 20-30 minutes were great, very atmospheric. From that point on, though, the game went downhill. Background sounds began looping noticeably to the point where you were expecting them.

READ SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS.

  • Summary: Look, I love this game. But if you have a MAC and tried the demo, do not buy this CD unless you have a PC with the minimum requirements. I figured that this was an updated CD so it would be PC/MAC compatible. If you have a mac and you want this game, GO TO THE APP STORE!

Good horror, but not my thing

  • Conclusion: People with more patience than me will most likely enjoy this a lot more, but personally I didn't like this game that much. The lack of variation in areas and enemies was annoying, but the puzzles are what killed it for me the most.
  • Pros: The game is in the style of the H.P. Lovecraft books (cosmic horror) and the game is indeed really scary. Monsters are always looking for you, you are slowly going insane and most importantly, you can't fight back. If a monster spots you, your only option is to run & hide.
  • Cons: The puzzles got on my never half-way through the game. I just suck at them, but I am always willing to try, but most puzzles require you to get items from different rooms and sometimes those require you to solve a puzzle as well. It's a big puzzle cake with multiple layers, I am sorry, but I have...

too many fake reviews

  • Summary: This game is fun and entertaining but still only worth about 10 bucks. The fact that you can not use a game controller really brings the game down. Thats all and this is an honest review!
  • Pros: There are too many fake reviews on this game. Most read like they were scripted. This game is good but NOT great! Sound is excellent, action decent, graphics not so much... The story is interesting but not ground breaking.
  • Cons: I used my eyes to see that the graphics need some help. If you need to use you "brains" to look at something then you should be in an art gallery looking at a Picasso.

Good but not great

Carl Y., Newegg
15 April 2011
  • Summary: I am using a new HIS 5770 with an AMD quad, updated drivers, and 8GB of 1333. Game should look better than it does. Forgive me if I am being picky. Why can't you use a game controler? Keyboard controlled games just suck out loud. Don't buy this game until its under 10 bucks!!! Not worth more.
  • Pros: It an interesting game with some some great sound effects. I don't mean like crash/boom, the breathing at times is well, just plain disturbing. View changes are crazy at times and actually had me turning my own head.
  • Cons: Graphics are not that great, they could use some help. Sound matched to the game is much better in my opinon. Using the Keyboard and mouse really drags the game down.

  • Summary: There are things this game does fantastically. The sound is amazing, the atmosphere is incredible. The monsters are scary as hell. There were a couple times when after a few minutes of hiding from a monster, listening for his footsteps and creeping little by little out into the light, trying to...
