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: 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: 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.
Summary: First and foremost the game has so much potential but lacks controls, I love the graphics and storyline and also the concept but i hate that you have to press so many buttons just to aim and lock onto a enemy, I love that theres many characters to play as and that each character has there own ability. also the monsters really look gruesome and disturbing as with all survival horror games would have.
Summary: When I read the reviews on this game, I was excited to play it because I'm a huge Resident Evil fan & one of the reviews I read said I'd probably like this game as well. -_- Negative. From the beginning, I could already tell this game was going to be a flop. I wasn't impressed by the graphics nor the lack of objectives as to what you're supposed to do. I obviously am not in agreement with others on this game. Would not recommend buying...
