Lone Survivor Review

VideoGamer.com
8 September 2012
  • Excerpt: When it comes to indie games, there's one word that always makes me cringe, and that word is interesting . Interesting is usually used as a substitute for fun or excitement, justification for ploughing through a sophistic art house game with a ham-fisted message, or an excuse for gameplay that'd have felt dated on the NES but, hey, the themes are 'interesting'.

  • Conclusion: What kind of game did you expect after reading the title? Did you expect a game in which you playing through by yourself as a lone survivor in some kind of world that has been devastated? That’s probably a good guess. Lone Survivor is a 2-D zombie side-scrolling survival adventure that seemed aesthetically pleasing.

Lone Survivor (PC) Review

  • Conclusion: Every aspect of Lone Survivor is an efficient and well-crafted attempt to ratchet up the tension and isolation. It is honestly enough to make me wonder if perhaps 2D is where Survival Horror really belongs.

  • Excerpt: The state of survival horror games is pretty bad right now. When you have games that are supposed to be scary failing to deliver and relying solely on jump scares, you know the genre's in trouble. And while there's certainly nothing wrong with jump scares — because any sane person loves a good one every now and then — there's something truly magnificent and beautiful about a good tension-inducing scare. Lone Survivor is a great example of this.

  • Excerpt: I stumbled across this game late at night on Steam, mostly out of not having any time at all to play some of my larger retail games, its been a busy few weeks and I wanted something I could enjoy in a couple of hours or when ever I’m taking a break from work.

Lone Survivor Review

GameSpot
3 May 2012
  • Excerpt: When you think of "intense" games, you might recall some shooter's bullet-laden climactic scene, or a particularly impressive combo in a fighting game. But intensity doesn't just exist in moments of over-the-top violence or during awe-inspiring displays of skill. It can come from the way a game affects your mood and your mind as you play it.
  • Pros: Pervasively creepy tone, Fantastic sound design and music, Multiple endings and branching pathways, Oppressive 2D visuals draw you in, Involving storyline and deep characterization
  • Cons: Confusing mapping system, Terrible chase sequences

  • Conclusion: Overview At the end of the day, Superflat Games have triumphed in creating an original title that both plays and looks as you expect. The way the story progresses is interesting, and there’s enough gravity to player choices that it’s worth a second play-through. If you’ve been longing for a survival horror experience that reminds you of the genre’s glory days, you can’t do any better for a budget price of $9.99.

  • Excerpt: Survival horror, as a genre, has taken a very hard shift since Resident Evil 4. Before RE4, survival horror was, in general, much more about trying to survive waves of horrifying creatures with limited supplies. Often times, running would be the best answer when you came across an enemy.
