Excerpt: To some extent, the average survival-horror game could be said to have two parts. One is its capacity to horrify the player; the other is the gameplay itself. Odds are good that the two aren't even tangentially related. The good news here is that Clock Tower 3 is scary.
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords review (DS)
20 June 2007
Excerpt: Tell me if this sounds familiar. It’s a classic battle between good and evil. Weak and battered, the hero stands firm, determined to fight through his last breath. In this desperate moment, he bows his head in concentration.
Excerpt: In a genre already almost fit to burst with either quality or above average titles, from well established franchises such as Resident Evil, Alone in the Dark, Silent Hill, etc, is there room for yet another survival horror game? Well, probably.
Summary: gave me the creeps. I put the game down after that horrifying bathtub sequence and never revisited the game again. I admit it, I’m a complete sissy when it comes to horror movies and games but there’s something different about Clock Tower 3.
Conclusion: In conclusion, Clock Tower 3 may be just what your survival-horror fanatics have been looking for to tide you over until the next Silent Hill or Resident Evil. It brings some new flavours to a well-used area of gaming, and if it can be found at a bargain price may well be worth it for the few hours...
