Summary: This game is one of the most interesting games I've played. I like horror games, so naturally I picked this up. But I also like HP Lovecraft, which was a lure all it's own. I like it for how much fun it was to play, as well as for how closely it followed the spirit of Lovecraft's work. It is another atmostpheric game, investigate - become immersed. And as the game moves toward the end, so the action increases.
Summary: this is by far the best game for the xbox that has ever been made, its a experience that you will never regret and also one of the longest games ever, in a great way! try it out and see! bethesda and 2k = greatness. sure wish the sequel wouldnt have been cancelled.
Summary: This game is very very good. It was a game like I've never played before. Watching Jack Walter's sanity diminish throughout the game, with the screen blurring and heart beating did so much to increase tension at moments. The sound was really good too, very creepy. Did it's job quite well. This game is tough though, it could be very hard to figure out what to do, and you don't get a weapon for awhile. But these things just added on to the experience.
Summary: i'm a huge lovecraft fan, so when i first played this i was pretty excited. unfortunately, this isn't very scary as it is annoying hard at some points. not in a fun way either, but in a have to play it again and again and again cause you keep making a stupid mistake cause it's not that well made of a game.
Summary: So far, that i am into it. I do not like the fact that it is 1st person. I find it very annoying. But the effects are creepy, and cool. Love the vibrations. Storyline is cool, and mysterious. But overall disappointed by 1st person character player.
Summary: Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth was a truely amazing retelling of Lovecraft's "Shadow Over Innsmouth". CoC is a dark game that is the first game of the horror/survival genre that takes sanity into account. The more your character gets disturbed the more that your sanity diminishes. It presents itself in forms such as hearing things that aren't there, seeing things, and controls will respond differently.
All that's going for this game is its Lovecraft roots.

Summary: I saw an ad for this game in an old issue of Game Informer. They advertised First Person action, insanity meter, and of course Cthulhu. I was thinking Doom when I read First Person, Eternal Darkness when I read insanity meter, and "Thank the gods, they finally made a H.P. Lovecraft game!" when I saw the title. All right, turns out to be 2 strikes and one ball. The first person action, well there really isn't any.
Summary: phenominal game. like the other guy, i am about 21 percent through the game but i found the chase exhilerating, like no other in any game. the blurryness is from your panic and if you do well, you won't be very blurry but if you keep looking at the guys breaking down doors that you lock behind you, or get shot a couple times, it goes downhill fast, but that is what makes it so intense.
