Excerpt: To many the 360 version of Alone in the Dark was a disappointment, with control issues being the primary aspect that they found got in the way of their fun. For this PS3 version, Eden Studios have been given a rare second chance, to perhaps make the game that they wanted to the first time round.
Summary: Alone in the Dark returns with a heart-stopping survival experience realized through combining the use of real-time physics and environmental interaction to deliver an exhilarating action-orientated experience within a highly detailed, open environment.
Summary: When Alone in the Dark came out for the Xbox 360 about five months ago, its dramatic story and unique gameplay mechanics were hobbled by its pervasive technical shortcomings. For the PlayStation 3 release, the developer has made a number of improvements that make the game much less frustrating, and chief among them are the vastly improved character movement and camera controls.
Pros: Controls significantly improved over Xbox 360 version, Abundant opportunities for clever item use, Dramatic moments pack a punch, Bucks many action adventure conventions, May encourage pyromania
Cons: Some lingering control issues whether you're on foot or behind the wheel, Riddled with visual inconsistencies, May encourage pyromania
Excerpt: A great addition to the series that shies away from the mindless killing-fest of other horror games on the market today, yet stays true to the atmospheric horror adventure of its roots. Great to play in the dark – if you dare.
Pros: A well paced horror that has some great visuals, interesting puzzles and edge-of-your-seat action sequences.
Cons: The controls feel a bit awkward at times and there is little replay value once you have completed the game.
Excerpt: Da Eden veio a versão revista de Alone in the Dark. Vários meses após a chegada às lojas da versão 360, a PlayStation3 recebeu um Alone in the Dark revisto, com uma mecânica melhorada. Não sendo um ícone dentro do género, o regresso do velho franchise fornece bons momentos de jogo, apresentando características de boa criatividade.
