Forbidden Siren

Fragland
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Playing survival-horror games never made me long for new underpants, although I tried to make it as exciting as possible. I’ve put out the lights, locked the door and only played in the dark, yet nothing happened. Not even Resident Evil made me look under my bed for bloodthirsty zombies.

  • Excerpt: Do you like scary movies’ I do now. I never liked them when I was a nipper though, that’s for damn sure. I remember spending a whole summer evening in my nan’s back garden on account of all my relatives watching John Hurt explode in Alien .

  • Conclusion: Scoring Forbidden Siren is hard. It has all the right ingredients to make a truly great survival horror game, and it's nice to see a developer trying something new with the stealth-biased gameplay.
  • Pros: Creepy, creepy atmosphere., SFX and music are superb., Nice progression in the Survival Horror genre.
  • Cons: Abysmal, unintentionally amusing voice acting., Some bizarre, fiddly controls., Did I mention the voice-acting?

  • Excerpt: Those looking for a new experience in the tried-and-tested genre are in for some luck with â??Forbidden Sirenâ??; whilst itâ??s fair to say that the game makes heavy use of the genre conventions, the â??SightJackâ?? feature lends the game a certain sense of freshness.

  • Conclusion: In fin dei conti… Forbidden Siren è con tutta certezza un must buy del genere horror: grafica ad alti livelli, sonoro eccellente e gameplay innovativo. L’uso dello stealth, la grandissima varietà di missioni e il sistema Sightjack convincono a pieno (peccato solo per una scarsa profondità dei...
  • Pros: Storia raccontata magistralmente, Tanti personaggi giocabili, Ambientazioni spaventose, Regala immense soddisfazioni...
  • Cons: ...ma la frustrazione è dietro l'angolo, Graficamente si poteva fare di più

  • Summary: Die innovative Idee der Feindsicht, die im Grunde packende Atmosphäre sowie das gelungen vermittelte Gefühl des Überlebenskampfes werden durch zu viele Frustmomente, fehlende Hilfestellungen und richtig unfaire Stellen deutlich geschmälert.
