Clive Barkers Undying

Quinn Reiswig, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: I enjoyed CB's Undying because not only does it cater to being a unique game in the genre it falls int'o it was also somewhat ahead of its time in gameplay and content. Speaking of gameplay if a comparison was made its somewhat similar to a primitive earlier Morrowind or an advancement to TES Daggerfall. The game has a unique assortment of weapons to defeat the various enemies including melee type weapons and spells.

Would benefit from an HD remake

  • Excerpt: I am a big fan of Clive Barker's, from his literature, to his film adaptations (such as the Hellbound Heart adaptation, Hellraiser being especially great), and now, his games. I am able to overlook some of the glaring flaws of Clive Barker's Undying because it is an inventive horror game that is genuinely quite creepy and atmospheric, with Barker's unique blend of body horror and intense eerieness.

A fantastic survival horror that is a must-have for all fans of the genre.

  • Excerpt: Only Barker could come up with a videogame as disturbing as this one. Never have I played an FPS with such horrific depth to it as Clive Barker's Undying. I can think of no better example of story-driven survival horror. While the weapons may be a little weak and unconventional, the sheer creativity behind the characters and enemies, coupled with the haunting atmospheres of the games many diverse environments make for a genuinely disturbing gaming experience.

  • Summary: When ever friends and I talk about what is the best game, we always have this in the top 5. It has such a good story line for an old school FPS I would recomend to anyone.

"The best game no one played"

Peter, Mighty Ape
23 March 2003
  • Summary: If you haven't played this already – and you probably haven't --, it's a must. Preferably in a darkened room with headphones. It remains one of the most memorable of all first-person shooters, and with superb gameplay to boot; it remains a bit of a mystery why it wasn't a hit. Inevitably it looks a bit dated now, but on the other hand that means it runs exceedingly smoothly.

  • Excerpt: As the cover says what doesn?t kill you will make you wish it had? The game begins when Patrick Galloway receives a letter from his old war comrade Jeremiah Covenant asking him to come to a remote Irish island. The reason for the request is that Jeremiah is dying and fears that what he and his 4 siblings unleashed from the stones when they were children may not finish with his death but become a permanent feature of this world.

  • Excerpt: It has been a while since I picked up a first person shoot-em-up, not since Unreal graced my PC screens almost a year ago to this day in fact. This is not because I am not a fan of the genre, because I am, but basically because since the evolution of Half Life and Quake 3 there seems to have been little interesting activity on the gaming front in this genre. That is until Clive Barker's Undying hit the PC and following some rave reviews I just had to check it out.
