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: 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 .
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 is chilling only in a cheesey horror way. The game has some fantastic ideas especially the use of five characters, with various skills that will benefit you at different points in the game. The use of dark auras on some enemies that can be dispelled by light made for a nice touch too.
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

Summary: A horror game thats 2 player at last!! Me and my younger sister have been playing this together and its great fun.. the game is very much like the faculty.. with students being tested on and turning into hideous monsters. There are 5 characters you can play which have different abilities and traits. I havent had this much fun on a 2 player game in ages. Well worth buying.
This review is only on first impressions probably better

Summary: imagine this, one of your friends goes missing and all clues to their whereabouts leads back to your school you then embark on a journey that is going to change your life forever prepare yourself for the hellish nightmare that is obscure. from what ive seen of this game it looks totally unique and one of a kind. the thought of being able to control any one of many characters at one time is mind boggling.
