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.

  • Summary: I had extremely high hopes for Forbidden Siren from the very first time I heard about the banning of the Japanese television advertisement and for the most part it meets my expectations.

  • 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?

  • Conclusion: Auch wenn das Spielprinzip zu Beginn etwas anödet, sollte man Forbidden Siren eine Chance geben. Düstere Spielabschnitte, bedrohliche Soundeffekte und schön gestaltete Zombies sprechen für das Spiel.

Cependant, dix personnes ont survécu à cette affreuse nuit. Au cours des trois...

  • Excerpt: Så er det igen blevet tid til natlige mareridt og paranoia. Slib dine økser og kassekroge, for hvad der gemmer sig ude i mørket er dæleme ikke rart. Vi hørte sirenernes kald og måske er det allerede nu for sent for denne anmelder.

  • Summary: Eine gewisse Gruselatmosphäre und einige frische Ideen kann man Sonys Horror-Schocker zwar nicht absprechen, spielerisch hat mich die Kombination aus Stealth-Einlagen und Gruselabenteuer jedoch etwas enttäuscht.
  • Pros: interessante Hintergrundgeschichte, extrem stimmige Atmosphäre, schöne Soundeffekte, ungewöhnlicher Genre-Mix
  • Cons: extrem träges Gameplay, viel 'Trial & Error', wenig Abwechslung, mäßige deutsche Lokalisierung

  • 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.
