  • Excerpt: I brought a Playstation about two years ago, and it came with Heart of Darkness. I immediately ran home, switched it on, and was instantly very impressed by the game. It has been two years since I first got the game, yet I still play on it quite a lot. It is quite an old game, and this is reflected in the graphics in the game, but the graphics for the short cut-scenes in the game are excellent. Anyway, here are the details about the game: WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
  • Pros: It's very cheap
  • Cons: The graphics are not too good, but it is an old game .

  • Excerpt: This game again proves that you don’t need incredible in-game graphics to be successful. The graphics on the videos are excellent, and the gameplay makes up for any lack in in-game graphics. You play as a young boy who has lost his dog. You need to get past many evil monsters and traps to find our dog. I think this game is definitely good value for money, and I haven’t found a similar game, which means Heart of Darkness is original. Addictiveness? Brilliant. Lastability?
  • Pros: Great gameplay
  • Cons: Poor graphics

  • Excerpt: It's a shame really, but the only thing that this game has got going for it is the graphics. I finished the entire game in less than a week - and that was only playing for about an hour a night! Having said that, there are some nice touches - name another game that gives you a set of 3D glasses for one of its CGI sequences...
  • Pros: Looks good
  • Cons: very, very short

Good but nowhere near addictive

  • Excerpt: I bought the game Heart Of Darkness as one of the four games I got with my playstation package, over a year ago now. I got stuck quite easily however. The graphics were not all that I have to say. Flat screen, only 3D in the little animations that kicked in every now and then, and pretty cartoon like flat screen at that, it felt like going back 5 years in game technology.
  • Pros: Good idea, took a while to complete
  • Cons: Boring graphics, very confusing areas to it

Entretenido pero no demasiado bueno

  • Summary: Este es un juego bastante entretenido. Yo me lo compre esperando otra cosa pero al final resulto que me engacho un poco. Al principio, hasta que aprendes a jugar, te agobias un poco, pero poco a poco si le vas cogiendo el truquillo se te ira haciendo todo un poco mas ameno. Si quieres un juego que te vaya a entretener durante un tiempo compratelo, pero si por el contratrio quieres un juego con posibilidades de hacer mas cosas o poder escoger entre dos caminos o algo asi,...
  • Pros: Largo
  • Cons: Soso

Bellísimamente corto

  • Summary: Heart of Darkness. Es un juego que apareció feria tras feria, que pasó de mano en mano, que sufrió continuos atrasos. Tenía pinta de ser todo un bombazo, un juego que marcaría una época. Finalmente, y después de un tiempo de gestación de más de 3 años, y después de algunos rumores de cancelación del proyecto, este finalmente salió a la luz gracias a Infogrames. Bueno, y ¿cuál es el veredicto de un juego que apareció hará un par de años?
  • Pros: Un entorno audio - visual muy cuidado
  • Cons: Exageradamente corto
