The Grandad of survival-horror is back

Game Debate
17 May 2009
  • Excerpt: The birth of the survival horror game as we know it was in 1992 when the influential Alone In The Dark was released. This creepy adventure was one of the first games to show us full 3D rendered polygons and had you fighting to stay alive inside a haunted mansion. In 2008 the Alone In The Dark series has been re-imagined for a new generation of gamers, crammed full of creative ideas and littered with flaws.
  • Pros: Plenty of originality, Effective musical score, Previously on...
  • Cons: The story, A bit glitchy, Pacing of the action

Alone in the Dark

Defunct Games
14 August 2008
  • Summary: Alone in the Dark could have been amazing. It could have been one of the best survival horror games since Resident Evil 4. It could have been a real showpiece for what the Xbox 360 could do. But instead it's marred by confusing controls, terrible gameplay, abysmal camera angles and, worst of all, a character I couldn't stand. Then again it does let you skip as far ahead as you want to without actually playing the game. That's something, right?

Alone in the Dark

Thunderbolt Games
29 June 2008
  • Excerpt: The Alone in the Dark series began life on PCs in 1992, and is widely credited with all but creating the ‘survival horror’ genre. However, over the years the market has not been kind to AitD , with the series never gaining the commercial success or critical acclaim the likes of Resident Evil or Silent Hill have enjoyed.

Alone in the Dark (Xbox 360)

The Review Busters
1 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Alone in the Dark use to be a series to get excited over, but things have changed. Once you play the new Alone in the Dark game, you will want to beg your local store to give you your money back. Skip this game, if you have to play it then just way for the price to drop to twenty dollars. I bet you anything that price drop will happen within the next two months.

Alone in the Dark

Adventure Classic Gaming
2 November 1997
  • Excerpt: The game Alone in the Dark is considered to be the grandfather of all action adventure games. Released in 1993, little do developer Infogrames and publisher I-Motion know that this title will someday inspire a whole new breed of computer games that combines action with adventure elements in a real-time generated 3D game world.
