Summary: Overall, just awful! What a pain in the a$$ to play… I’ve been a pc gamer for a long time (since the original Doom, around 1995), and AITD is just one of those games that was NOT designed with ease-of-play in mind. 1.
Summary: If there is such thing as an 'anti-game', this must be it. I simply had the impression this wasn't a game, but rather an experiment by the game publisher to test how far they push the gamer into frustration with an endless stream of bugs, impossible control schemes, camera angles that don't work,...
Summary: The game has an interesting story, and an good method of telling that story, unfortunately the game is completely ruined by the terrible, awful controls. They are so bad, that I honestly think Atari tested the entire PC version using the xbox controller. The major problems were: 1.

Summary: I really wanted to like this game, honestly. I've played and completed all of the previous incarnations, and mostly enjoyed them. For those of you who don't know Alone In The Dark is the game that gave the "Survival Horror" genre a kick start.
Summary: This game is awful. I am a big fan of the survival horror genre, and this has to be one of the most frustrating games I've ever played. There are countless times when you are faced with a situation that is really hard to resolve, so you keep dying.
Summary: When I first heard that a new Alone in the Dark game was coming out, I actually couldn't wait, so I kept nagging everyone and hinting that I'd like it for my birthday. Finally I got it, and had to play it right away. Unfortunately, that was only the beginning of misery.
Summary: I played Alone in the Dark 4(the New Nightmare) back in 2001 when it came out and it was my first survival horror game - fantastic and scary! So, when the sequel was announced I couldn't wait to play it!
Summary: Oh dear...this is the lowest score I have given to a PS2 game for a long time. Alone In The Dark on the PS2 fails really glaringly in many ways, and provides a thoroughly unsatisfying game experience.
