Summary: This is one game that's hard to find in new condition with a manual. The price was much less than I expected to pay. Bought it as a replacement for a copy I owned that got warped due to my Wii overheating. Plays like a dream!
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.

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: 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.
