Summary: I wrote an e-mail to the developers 'The Astronauts', that made the incredible new game called The Vanishing of Ethan Carter 2014. I asked them to consider remaking Undying for their next project. With the Unreal 3 engine, I can only imagine how ridiculously good that game will look, feel and play. Especially with the talent that folks at the The Astronauts have! Not sure if my e-mail will get through, but hopefully it will be read and considered.
Summary: Clive Barker's Undying is a perfect example of horror-FPS. It's scary as hell - I finished it a half of dozen times, but every time I play it, I still prefer to do this by daylight, I'm sure you'll understand why :). It's a must-have for those who love horror games: it has a fantastic creepy sound track, a nice story, a perfect voice-over, an incredibly abominable enemies, a lots of weapons and magic spells (heck, you can use them both simultaneously), a nice but fearful...
Summary: Its kind of amazing that 13 years ago approximately, we saw a game like Undying even out on the PC. After all it was the end of the golden late 90's era of videogames, ridiculously good (and sometimes bad) titles were coming out left and right. However, Clive Barker's Undying could've had any box art or title it wanted, it was just one of those examples of how well an actual videogame can look, play, sound and "be".
Summary: This is one of the most obscure games you will never hear of and should have played. The game play mechanics and visual designs/animations were years ahead of it's time. One wonders how many other games' play mechanics have been inspired by Undying without credit where it's due. The game holds up well even today and is one of the more atmospheric games out there. Pro tip: play it really late at night when you'll have more concentration and less distractions.
Summary: Although the box doesn't mention Vista, this game runs very smoothly on my 32 Windows Vista laptop. My laptop has no upgrades to speak of, but it can run this classic game on the highest settings! Beware though: I've heard (but have not confirmed) that this game will run awkwardly on heavier dual-core processor computers. The game itself is a little dated by today's standards, but effective enough to startle a jaded Horror veteran like myself.
Summary: Undying is one of the most memorable games ever produced. Its a game of horror. The story is quiet interesting while it may not be as awesome as other Barker's work but in terms of being a game and the time this game was published I should say he did an awesome job. Gameplay is what Undying is all about. one hand with guns and another hand you can cast different magics. it lets you to decide how to kill your enemies.
Summary: Great graphics for its time, great story, great music, scary ambient, original, this game is just awesome to play. If you're tired of today's games and you want something old and nostalgic Clive Barker's Undying is the perfect game to play. It will work perfectly on any PC with Windows going from 7, XP all the way to 98 and 95, its just an addictive game that once you play it you want more and it just attracts you into it.
Summary: What a great game and one of my all time favourites. Sadly it didn't receive the acclaim or following it deserved at the time of it's release, but if you can get it installed it's still worth your time. Awesome.
Summary: This game is combination of great story that is not there to ruin anything a skill level system work really well, and magic combined with shooting is beautiful, first time I finished it on normal and did not read journals, that was a big mistake, I played it again with different skill build and now on hard difficulty I found most of journals. Story was excellent, this game sets an example oh how video games should be made.
