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. The backgrounds are statically rendered 2D, with 3D characters moving around on them. There is some animation on a few of the screens, but it's generally quite limited.
