Excerpt: Koudelka certainly starts strong. The opening intro, for example, isn't the usual loud and overblown affair that seems to be the norm these days—instead it is very low key. It consists of a lone, dark figure riding horseback through a countryside at night.
Excerpt: The graphics in Koudelka are quite nice. They catch the ambience of the abandoned monastery where it is set quite well, with a dark, foreboding tone throughout the game. It's moody, in a real sense like Alone in the Dark was, as opposed to the oogely-boogely sense that Resident Evil is.
