Obscure: The Aftermath

The Gamers Temple
26 February 2010
  • Excerpt: One of the best parts about this job is getting to play certain games before they even hit stores, but the absolute best part is letting everyone know just what they have to look forward to – or not. Which brings us to the PSP port of Obscure: Aftermath – the new PSP survival horror game that may be a new release, but I've had for some time and have already finished. Obscure: Aftermath is the sequel to 2004's Obscure, a marginally popular PC/PS2 adventure.

Obscure: The Aftermath

Playstation Illustrated
24 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Being a middle-aged gamer has its downside, not the least of which is having lived to play many decades of mediocre games; what we wouldn't give for those hours of our life back, in a room with a bottle of scotch and a nude supermodel... Okay, but as we were saying, the upside of playing games for almost 30 years is that we've been around for many of the great gaming trends. One favorite from the last decade was the rise of the survival horror game.

  • Conclusion: The Aftermath is not a great game, but it's a good game. It's not perfect, but it does offer some solid entertainment value despite some flaws.

Obscure: The Aftermath PSP Review

AtomicGamer
1 October 2009
  • Excerpt: Given the popularity of teen slasher films and survival horror videogames, it's surprising the two don't collide more often. Where are the games based on the Scream or Final Destination franchises? Seems like a money-making no-brainer, yet most horror games take the riskier route, creating entirely new, untested properties. Obscure , a little known title from 2005, actually did capitalize on the teens-being-terrorized craze, and saw some success with the formula.

  • Conclusion: Perhaps the worst thing I can say about Obscure: The Aftermath is that it's entirely average. The game has plenty of flaws, but not enough to break the game or render it a waste of time. Similarly, the presentation takes impressive strives with the sound and visuals, but is just as quick to take steps back with its awkward contrivances and nonsense narrative.

Obscure: The Aftermath

Gaming Evolution
29 September 2009
  • Conclusion: For $29.99 you will not find a better survival horror title for the PSP. This title is packed full of "jumping" moments which will have your adrenaline flowing and people wondering what's wrong with you. With the inclusion of co-op, that just yet another reason to pick this game up. UMD or digital distribution, it's your choice, however it will be a choice that you will enjoy no matter what medium.
