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?
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 .
Obscure (PS2): This game shouldn't be so...Obscure

Summary: Me and my mate tried looking for a co-op survival horror game, after much searching on the internet we found this game on many peoples wishlists and quite highly rated. Once started we could understand why, my mate mentioned how Silent Hill like it was, having never played it I wasn't sure if that was good (having heard lots of good stuff about SH).
Summary: Gaining a new love for horror movies and finally digging out my playstation 2 i thought obscure would be the perfect game to start up my once dead playstation addiction. Hearing its two player was awesome. I got my best friend round and we'd play Obscure together alot. Its actually a really great game to play with a friend, especially a screamish friend.
Pros: great fun to play, real tense and exciting, once you start you might get addicted.
Cons: i found the mini boss hard to defeat which annoyed me after a while and stopped me playing.
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 .
Summary: Obscure was aptly named, simply because it was totally lost to obscurity. This game did not come to the forefront on it's release and that is unfortunate! Take this most excellent adventure with a buddy. It didn't get the kudos it deserved, if you give it a try, I am sure you will agree!
Excerpt: "I intended to do this review a while back, but my product suggestion only just came through, and in the interim I've written a Top 10 of scary games, in which I mentioned this title. I suppose I now have the chance to expand on what I wrote there. WHAT IS IT? Obscure is a playstation 2 game in the survival-horror genre. THE PLOT Like so many slasher films, this game centres around a group of good-looking High School kids. You start the ...
Pros: Two player, survival horror action
Cons: Some storylines not developed, the additional ending is a let down
