Alone in the Dark (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
24 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Alone in the Dark was one of those games I expected to earn decent reviews when I saw the first screenshots. The fact that the Wii version was developed separately from the HD versions also helped to keep my hopes up. Unfortunately, Alone in the Dark’s innovative ideas suffer from branching out in too many different directions with too little focus on actual polish and fine-tuning.

Gory survival horror with subpar game mechanics.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is a pretty gruesome survival horror game. Your character must kill zombies and other supernatural creatures with a handgun, incendiary devices, and other fire-based tools (players learn alot about how to make fire bombs). Bodies are scattered throughout the landscapes, some even decapitated. Blood is evident on walls and floors, while zombies spit blood at your character. The game also includes some pretty strong language.

  • Excerpt: It's with a great sense of anticipation that we approach the launch of Atari's brand new thriller adventure game. Nintendo gamers haven't been treated to a mature game with a genuinely thrilling storyline since Resident Evil 4 was released over a year ago and it's about time fans of the genre got something to stick their teeth into.

Review: Alone in the Dark

N-Europe
24 June 2008
  • Conclusion: Alone In The Dark is a truly shining example of both how to make a bad game and how to over-hype a game. Avoid.
  • Pros: Very good music, When it all comes together, it's playable
  • Cons: It only all comes together perhaps twice., Awful visuals and framerate, Terrible AI, Needed another six months work at least

  • Excerpt: Schon damals in den 90ern war die Spiele-Serie Alone in the Dark sehr bekannt. Denn dieses Spiel hat auf dem PC und dem damals gefloppten 3DO den Begriff Survival-Horror ins Leben gerufen. Das Action-Adventure beeindruckte nicht nur an Hand der Grafik und der allgemeinen Technik, sondern auch wegen der gruseligen Momente. Jetzt schreiben wir das Jahr 2008. Der fünfte Teil der Serie ist am 20. Juni für alle Systeme, außer für PS3 und DS, erschienen.

  • Conclusion: Ich habe mich wirklich sehr auf dieses Spiel gefreut und hatte dementsprechend hohe Erwartungen. Leider wurden die meisten von ihnen bitter enttäuscht. Zwar hat das Spiel auch auf der Wii einige gute Momente, die sich auch sehen lassen können, doch schlechte Steuerung, grausige Synchronsprecher und eine kaum packende Story sorgen dafür, dass ich wie der Held lieber ganz schnell an Amnesie leiden möchte.
  • Pros: + feurige Physik-Engine, + Kapitelauswahl, + Gute Hintergrundmusik, + Viele Kombinationsmöglichkeiten, + teilweise klasse Grafik, + cooles Inventar, + "Was bisher geschah" bei der Kapitelauswahl
  • Cons: - schlecht erzählte Story, - schreckliche Synchronsprecher, - grausige Steuerung, - Schießen nur in der Ego-Perspektive, - Atmosphäre nur ansatzweiße vorhanden

  • Excerpt: [FONT=Verdana, sans-serif]Alone in the Dark ist einfach nur dunkel. Nicht nur im Spiel wird es zappenduster, sondern auch außerhalb. Überall findet man nur schlechte Rezensionen des Titels und dann reitet sich Atari auch noch in diesen niederträchtigen Skandal hinein. Die Leute dort sind nicht nur unfähig, Spiele zu programmieren, sondern auch noch Nichtskönner in Sachen Erpressungen. Doch wie kann man nur so tief sinken?

Alone in the Dark – RePlay Review

ComputerGames.ro
16 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Uneori te încăpățânezi să termini un joc prost doar din ambiție. Alteori o faci pentru că trebuie. Sau fiindcă te plictisești, fiind vară, iar aparițiile sunt rare în această perioadă. Sau, de ce nu, o faci doar pentru a putea ocroti restul lumii de ororile prin care ai trecut. Oricare din aceste variante sunt valabile într-o anumită măsură pentru Alone in the Dark. Jocul este extrem de slab, cap coadă, cu puține elemente ce ar putea justifica clemență.
  • Pros: Unele puzzle-uri, Grafica, la modul particular, Conceptul
  • Cons: Grafica, la modul general, Interfaţa, Optimizarea, O tonă de bug-uri
