Expert Review

PSX Extreme
17 July 2008
  • Excerpt: among our most anticipated games of 2008, simply because we loved the media and information we had seen at that point. Unfortunately, Atari delayed the PlayStation 3 version until later in the year, which meant we’d have to also delay our analysis of the promising survival/horror title.

Saving Progress

  • Conclusion: I am at a loss as to what happened with Alone in the Dark . It takes new ideas and breaks them, manages to get even the most established clichés wrong, and is buggy and unfinished to boot. There is nothing to salvage here. Even the end, a face to face confrontation with Satan himself, is boring.

Alone In The Dark

AV Club
7 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Valiantly tries out new ideas, but misses the forest for the trees.
  • Pros: The moments when a bomb made out of several household products actually takes out a room full of enemies in exactly the way you hoped it might.
  • Cons: You need access to the new inventory system, which has Edward opening his jacket and slowly poking around within, as if he's selling watches in Union Square. The health system, which has him looking down to spray wounds with disinfectant, fares slightly better.
