Lone Survivor Review

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'.

Lone Survivor (PC) Review

12 May 2012
  • 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.

Lone Survivor review

9 May 2012
  • 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.

Lone Survivor PC Review

5 May 2012
  • 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. Created by Jasper Byrne, who is also the creator of Soul Brother and Soundless Mountain II and has been making games since the 80′s, not counting the 12 years break he took to become a DJ and producer, comes “Lone...

Lone Survivor

3 May 2012
  • 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.

Talking About Games
13 April 2012
  • 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. After RE4, however, survival horror games [...

Review: Lone Survivor

27 February 2014
  • Conclusion: I reviewed this game primarily on the Vita and I couldn’t have selected a better console to fully immerse myself into this game with the lights off and headphones on. I found that each time things got a little bit creepy I would push the console away as a feeble means of protection or closer to become a part of some of the games much more magical moments. This game being a cross buy opportunity on the PlayStation store I could not recommend it more.
