Conclusion: Leery of a game with a title you can’t pronounce? Don’t be. You should be leery about losing your sanity to the dark things that mortals should have no knowledge of. Call of Cthulhu (kuh-THOO-loo is the easiest, though not the best way to say it BTW) is a game that will do just that, destroy your...
Summary: I was sweaty-palmed when I bought Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth on release date, having been a fan of horror games for many years, I really looked forward to experiencing what promised to do things differently.
Summary: One of my faves and spent years looking for it again...my boyfriend really enjoys it too...love the whole H.P Lovecraft mythos and the Cthulhu stories. If you have a love for dark things...visit the Dark Corners of the Earth...
Summary: I bought this for my Xbox 360, after checking to see if it would work. Online research led me to believe it was compatible, but to expect loss of music and occasional crashes which could be overcome by reloading from a saved game position.

Summary: Missed this game when originally came out on the xbox but bought it a few months back to play on 360. This is an enjoyable game with an intriguing story, some great action sequences and excellent boss fights (the one on a boat is most original and enjoyable I have come across in years..
Summary: Ive played hundreds of games from the PS1, PS2, Xbox and now 360, and this is one of the most memorable, i love games that take risks, create atmosphere and test the brain, this does all that, as well as having a great storyline..
Summary: I can not believe the reviews previous to this one.As a veteran gamer of at least 20 years experience,this ranks as one of the greatest achievements i have ever played.Unfortunately,the difficulty level is astonishingly high,even on the easiest skill level.It is a testament to the quality of this...
