Summary: Oh how I wish I could rate this game higher. The atmosphere is incredibly good. Unfortunately, that is the only thing good about it. Otherwise, it's a trial and error, save, load, save, load, loop of aggravation. Wrong door, load, try again. Not fast enough, load, try again.
Summary: Wow, where do I even begin. Call of Cthulu isa game that fails in so many ways. Before I get to the technical issues, I think it is best to start with the general game design. Call of Cthulu tries to be three things: a)A horror game b)an FPS, and c) a puzzle game.
Summary: I've never seen Lovecraft so wonderfully brought to the computer screen...frightening, dismal, and dank. It's a cerebral game, you just can't shoot your way out of everything. And I could spend an hour just 'walking' around looking at the scenery. But there are a lot of technical problems.
Summary: This could be a great game, except for the fact that you will be forced to play the same scenes over and over until you get the timing right. Run, open door, lock door, open next door, lock door, move cabinet, open door, lock door. Oops, I accidentally opened the door instead of locking it.
