Summary: Game could have been a winner. It froze up a few times, along with a few glitchy spots. Camera angles are terrible. Gameplay is terrible. If you have abundant patience you might get by, but you still won't have much fun with this. 1/10 is my rating.
I truly feel sorry for the people who tested this game...

Summary: This game is a blight on the entire survival horror genre and I'll tell you why in one sentence: it suffers from being far too ambitious and all of the developers' ideas were horribly executed.
Summary: Fans of the original Alone in the Dark will not like this game...no one else will either. Everything about this game is bad...bad controls, bad gameplay, terrible story, bad graphics, just a bad game all around.
Summary: Having played some of the best games ever on the PS3 recently (eg. Fallout 3, Bioshock I & II), I have to admit that this is the worst game I have ever played on the console in equal last place with Turok and Haze.

Excerpt: Ok well first off this game is as I feel excellent if you give it time to get use to the kind of awkward controls at the beginning but you will actually get the hang of them as I did (its not like a game you pick up and know every button, you do need to get used to them as there is much things you...
