Summary: I'm not sure about the other one star reviews, but mine is based on my experience with the Wii version of this title. My number one complaint were the poor controls, it was like driving a slow truck. I did not feel as engaged playing this (with or without asecond player) as I did with other horror games (I dislike the rampant use of Survival/Horror as a genre, most of these games breakdown into one of the two choices, Obscure was more survival than horror, but I...
Summary: Kind of boring and as the titles says the puzzles or riddles are a bit "obscure." But I played the game in co-op mode so that might be the reason. Edit I played this game by myself and I have to say I enjoyed it much more than with a partner. It was easier to figure out the puzzles and I actually liked the story and characters.
Love the "Mood" but Difficult Controls and Camera Angle

Summary: My husband and I were excited to get this game as we love playing coop together. The mood and tone of Obscure is wonderfully eerie despite the horrible "acting". In some ways the scenes/visuals remind us of Silent Hill; quiet, foggy, blood stains, etc. The storyline is fine enough but our main problem with the game is the camera function and controls.
Summary: While I do admit it isn't up to par as other survival games; Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Penumbra, and the likes, its still not as bad as you may think it to be. The story line is pretty good, though cheesy at some points, but I like how even though the plot isn't complex, it made me want to complete the game to see what was next.
Summary: If you like survival horror games such as Resident Evil and Silent Hill you will probably find Obscure at least mildly enjoyable. There's a fun cast of characters, all college student stereo types that you can play as. You can change characters mid game play to solve various puzzles, and each student has a different set of skills that allow them to complete certain types of puzzles like mini games.
Summary: This game sucks so bad. At first you think it is a great game because you sitting there and its like a 10 minute introduction. and it has like peoples name and stuff. so you honestly think your watching a movie. and then it doesnt tell you anything or where to go and boom. your in game mode. i tried for and hour and a half on this game. you cant do anything. the graphics suck. the motions and actions of the characters are so fake.
Summary: college kids with a corny horror theme to go with it. not worth it, i play ten minutes of it and regret every minute big let down. If you like a goofy horror theme with immautre college kids than this is your game but if you want a real zombie game,like resident evil than dont get this game becuase itll let you down.
