Obscure: The Aftermath

13 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Game: Obscure: The Aftermath Genre: Survival Horror Platform: Wii, PS2, PC (reviewed on Wii) When the first Obscure game hit PS2 and Xbox consoles in 2005, it may not have been the best-reviewed title ever, but it developed enough of a cult following to make it hard to find and warrant a sequel. That sequel is the recently released Obscure: The Aftermath , which follows the survivors of the first game to college, where the nightmare is starting all over again.

Obscure: The Aftermath

Video Game Generation
25 April 2008
  • Excerpt: One of the most undeservedly overlooked survival horror games of the last generation (if not the last decade) is the excellent, if ironically aptly titled Obscure . That game ( which I reviewed here ) has gamers playing as one of four high school students, uncovering a mystery that just keeps getting deeper as the story progresses – Buffy with teeth, if you will, or Silent Hill: The High School Years .

Obscure: The Aftermath

9 April 2008
  • Conclusion: If you liked the first game in the series, you'll find plenty of crossover elements, but then again, if you played the original Obscure, you already have an idea of what to expect. There's nothing wrong with exploiting a proven formula, assuming it's done well. Unfortunately, In Obscure: The Aftermath, nothing is done very well.
  • Pros: Some cleverly designed puzzles, Nice soundtrack.
  • Cons: The grating cast of characters is voiced by a similarly grating troupe of actors, Not a single chill or scare to be found, Awful camera and targeting scheme can lead to plenty of unavoidable deaths.
