Excerpt: Poor Fiona Belli. First a car crash that claimed the lives of her beloved parents, then waking up, only to find herself naked except for a flimsy sheet, locked in a dog cage. Not a great way to start a day, now is it? The gorgeous CGI intro weaves her sad tale beautifully, but this will be the first and only time you see CG in Haunting Ground . The rest of the game is comprised entirely of in-game graphics and they are breathtaking.
Excerpt: Almost every horror survival game I can think of relies in some way on the player getting good at combat. Some like the Silent Hill series are more adventure driven, though combat is a huge part. Others like Resident Evil will have you blasting so many creatures you will be the customer of the month at the local gun store. Haunting Ground puts you into a similar situation as these other titles with one major exception: you don't have any real weapons.
Conclusion: Man kan sagtens postulere, at Haunting Ground ikke fornyr genren på nogen måde. Det genbruger en kamerastyring, mange har forbandet, og muligheden for at dele hovedrollen mellem to karakterer er heller ikke nogen revolution. Alligevel bringer spillet så mange nye elementer til genren, at det fortjener en værdig plads på hylden hos enhver gyserelsker.
