agree with previous reviews - designers mar a potentially 5 star game

  • Summary: look I will make it short-the story is well written, graphics are OK, puzzles almost always make sense resulting in a great atmosphere for this horror game. What takes 2 stars off its ranking is asinine game design making fights overly punishing and frustrating and the game is also way too long. Either monkeys were used as testers or the designers do not give a XXmn about players enjoying their moneys worth.

Did H.P. Lovecraft ever dream of this?

  • Summary: It's quite signifigant when a video/computer game is made on the sole basis of a work of fiction, written over 80 years ago. Perhaps a bit daring, Bethesda Softworks delves into the dark creations of H.P. Lovecraft to conceive and construct a FP/survival-horror title worthy to the enigmatic name of Cthulhu. However, the question is whether or not the game is, in fact, able to do justice to the sea creature's prestige.

Could have been game of the year but.....

  • Summary: Here is the simple low down on this game. It's one of the best horror games ever made, and follows the Lovecraft Mythos really well. Fun and creepy. Bad news, it has 1 million bugs. No matter how nice your computer is, there is a decent chance that at some point in this game it'll bug up and you won't be able to finish it. And the company doesn't intend on releasing any patches, ever. 5 stars for the game, 1 star for the programing.
