Summary: (Note: This reveiw is for the XBOX version, I'm not sure if it makes a diffrence) Obscure is a fun game, if you like those stupid horror movies where teens get killed, you'll like the storyline. Five stereotypical teens (Brain, Jock, Nerd, Tomboy, and the Punk) get locked in a creepy school with a variety of disgusting monsters crawiling all over the place. The teens dialouge is good. Wern't expecting that, were you?
Summary: more games need to adopt the teen slasher theme, because it's a gold mine of opportunity and this game alone pulls it off so well. if you're in it for the creepy atmosphere and gripping tension, you're in luck, but if you're just after some cheesy, popcorn, don't-look-in-there-you-moron horror, it has plenty of that, too.
Summary: I have to compare this one to Code Veronica in the resident evil series. The graphics, like Veronica, are great and the overall story is excellent and the presentation is great. The one problem is the difficulty, it's just a little too hard. I kept getting stuck on certain sequences and found it really tiresome, and time consuming, to get past them.
ObsCure: I don't think this was on the curriculum.

Excerpt: "...my first play through of ObsCure it took 3 - 4 days but when I unlocked special mode and played the other difficulty levels it took around a day because I already knew where to go and what to do. Fans of survival horror which are similar to the Silent Hill and Resident Evil games will enjoy this for some twisted light hearted entertainment. The basic outline of the game is similar to most teen slasher movies but I didn't find myself sighing at ...
Pros: Multiplayer, good plot, great soundtrack and extras .
Cons: Longevity, not much gameplay after completing the game once/twice .
Summary: Now, I may just be proving to everyone that I'm a bad gamer but this game was extremely hard for me. I couldn't grasp the controls at all, especially when it came to giving other characters commands on the d-pad, and the monsters were very hard, making my energy go down almost fully with just one hit. To make this even worse, there were hardly any health items to boost up my health.

Excerpt: "Obscure was a title i'd never heard of when a friend recommended it, and i'm glad he did. As a fan of Resident Evil and Silent Hill I was intrigued to see how this game panned out. So what makes this different from the above games? Well the fact that you can play as a Co-op in this Survival Horror game, which was pretty unique. The gameplay is decent and follows the format that most of these games do. The graphics aren't too shabby either. Sound is ...
Pros: Alternate to Res Evil and Silent Hill . Nicely presented .
Cons: Disappointing Storyline and not much fun to play over again .
