Clive Barkers Undying
Game Over Online
13 March 2015
Excerpt: What could you possibly expect from a title that boasts the name of one of the world’s best horror writers? If you said horror, you’re neither right nor wrong. It’s rather difficult to classify any game as horror, simply because you don’t scare the same way as when you’re watching a movie or reading...
Summary: Undying comes to us from Electronic Arts and the master of terror, Clive Barker. It is set in Ireland during the 1920’s as you a*ume the role of Patrick Galloway. Galloway becomes embroiled in supernatural events surrounding the estate of his friend, Jeremiah.
Conclusion: As I said, the game is a standard 1 st person shooter (using the Unreal Tournament Engine) with Galloway able to operate a weapon (or tool) and a spell simultaneously, which is useful when trying to keep those enemies at bay.
Excerpt: Clive Barker�s Undying is the first game from the mind of the famous British horror writer (Hellraiser, Cabal etc), honestly only a great author such as Clive Barker can produce such a great storyline as seen in Undying.
Excerpt: Published by: Electronic Arts Developed by: DreamWorks Interactive Minimum Requirements Win95/98 PIII400MHz 3D accelerator 4x CD-ROM 64MB RAM 644MB hard drive space Da Introduction: Tired of staying up late in the hope of catching a re-run of Boris Karloff to get your nightly fix of terror?
Conclusion: Incredible graphics, capable of resolutions up to 1600x1200, amazing music and sound, and the controls are solid. Did I mention you'll pee your pants everytime you play it? It's not often you see a shooter with a story this deep, although it might deter some from not playing it.
Excerpt: In both movies and games that rely on fear, both the visuals and the audio must envelop you with an atmosphere conducive to scaring. The last game to really get this right (despite any issues with the gameplay itself) was Alien: Resurrection for the PlayStation. Undying hits it on the head as well.
Conclusion: That about wraps it up, folks... Final verdict: this is one title that single player FPS wouldn't want to miss. Despite a few irksome drawbacks this is one helluva horror action game, and I hope titles like this one just keep on coming... I'll be a happy man.
Pros: Immersive, moody, pretty, pretty scary, and deep... Clive breathes some fresh life into the genre;
Cons: Linear gameplay can be a turn off... AI glitches. Ineffective spells, needs more weapons (relative con's - it's a matter of taste).
Excerpt: Clive Barker's Undying is a brand new first person shooter from Electronic Arts. The game is based on a slightly enhanced Unreal Tournament engine, while the story was written by the famous horror writer Clive Barker (who among other things wrote and directed the movie "Hellraiser").
Excerpt: The first first-person action game since Half-Life with a soul…and it’s after yours . Squeezing graphics and performance out of the Unreal engine until it screams and bleeds, Undying puts players in the unenviable shoes of occult-buster Galloway, summoned to take on the supernatural badness of a...
