Obscure: The Aftermath

Playstation Illustrated
15 May 2006
  • Excerpt: When Obscure: The Aftermath came in, it took me a few minutes to remember its predecessor, so I guess it was aptly named. But when I did, I pulled up the review and was surprised at the score, I remembered liking it a bit less than the score would imply, but how did this sequel pan out?

Obscure

Playstation Illustrated
15 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Being a fan of the horror movie genre, Obscure seemed like a game right up my dark, dank alley, especially when you consider its tag-line of “the first action game created in the style of teen-horror movies.

  • Excerpt: Obscure is $20. Yes, $20. In a page out of Visual Concept's book, Dreamcatcher decided to gain a foothold in the market by selling its title for a crazy low price. Fans of survival horror who have already played RE to death, might want to stop reading and go buy this disc on that fact alone.

  • Conclusion: As for replay value, you’ll probably only play ObsCure once, which should take you five to seven hours to beat. You will unlock a few goodies (including the worst “making of” ever made) but once you’re done messing around with those things, you’ll probably never touch ObsCure again.

  • Conclusion: Hydravision have gone for a camera system that is a cross between Resident Evil and Silent Hill . The camera will follow you around in a third-person perspective, but it’s often not directly behind you, so you might be running into the camera, or to the left of it for example.
  • Pros: A really decent survival horror game that isn’t Resi or Silent Hill., The two-player co-op mode., A sensible inventory system that works., Sounds superb (especially in Dolby Pro Logic II).
  • Cons: It’s quite a short game., More varied boss fights would have been welcome., A better way of seeing the state of your character’s health would be nice.

  • Summary: A very solid game that never really challenges Resident Evil, but it is a bit of fun, if you can find it cheap give it a go or at least give it a rental.

  • Excerpt: "Obscure tarjoaa teinikauhuelokuvan pelin muodossa. Muutamat uudet pelilliset jipot, varsin toimiva käyttöliittymä sekä hyvät kontollit kuorrutettuna painostavalla tunnelmalla tekevät Obscuresta pelin, joka survival horror pelien ystävien kannattaa ehdottomasti katsastaa. "
  • Pros: + Tunnelma, + Kontrollit/käyttöliittymä, + Useampi hahmo/moninpeli, + Grafiikka ja äänimaailma
  • Cons: - Pelin tallentaminen, - Hahmoparin vaihtaminen

  • Conclusion: Après un premier volet surprenant, Obscure revient presque à l'identique, la fraîcheur en moins. On retrouve un jeu plus accessible qui manque d'un peu de renouveau, mais reste une bonne expérience que l'on peut partager.
  • Pros: Un survival-horror façon "teenage", Un mode coopération, Une ambiance sonore réussie
  • Cons: Manque de renouveau, Linéarité, Quelques soucis de caméra

  • Conclusion: Pour résumer ces quelques lignes, Obscure est une très bonne surprise ! Il excelle tant par sa réalisation technique que par son ambiance captivante ! Les nombreux bonus à débloquer, le mode coopération inédit ainsi que son scénario envoûtant pallieront sans grand problème sa faible durée de vie en...

  • Conclusion: Jag måste erkänna att jag blev positivt överraskad. Obscure dök upp från ingenstans och tog över hela mitt liv lika snabbt. Och det enda spelet och filmerna har gemensamt är de taskiga röstskådespelarna som förmodligen är desamma.
