Just. Can't. Finish it.

Summary: I hate to quit a game in the middle, especially one that I was excited about beforehand. I've played a couple of Cthulhu-based table-top RPGs, so I was pleased to discover Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth for the PC. It's an older game, but I'm not too put off by that. The first chapter or two were spooky and very Mythos-laden.
Frustrating!!! Adventure aspect gets ruined by forced timed action sequences.

Summary: "You Are Dead". You will see this screen over and over and over again. You can't skip the many cutscenes so you will have to sit through the same ones over and over again. You can't save so you have that to add to the frustration. In only the second level of this game called "Attack Of The Fishmen" you will want to hurl this game straight into the trashcan! So very frustrating.
Not so much. Totally linear plot and action. Boring.

Summary: On the upside, it is very Lovecraftian. Original graphics. But, Not much investigating going on. No need to read clues, just start shooting the badguys, open doors, pull levers to solve the same gay puzzles on every other game, and on and on an on without any development in the plot. Innsmouth is less like a town, and more like a straight alley.
