Summary: Being familiar with HP Lovecraft I was looking forward to this game and was prepared to give it a real chance to impress. For the first hour or so of the game I was enjoying myself - exploring the eerie town, talking to people, investigating the mystery of Innsmouth. So far so good. Things were looking promising. Unfotunately this early promise soon gives way to a typical uninspired console puzzle game.

Summary: I like the Cthulu rpg. I also love rpg's on the x-box. But i found this Cthulu sadly very disapointing. The game starts very well, atmosphere and tension are slapped on with a trowel and you're drawn into a very well realised world. In proper Lovecraft fashion nothing really adds up as you start investigating a missing person and begin to uncover the strange truth - but then everything goes wrong from a gameplay point.
Summary: I enjoy a good game that tests the wits, sometimes tests the reactions a little, and topmost has a good story that I can follow and latch on to (like reading a good book). The gameplay (I've experienced to date, which is all I ever will) was reasonably linear (no problem with that), and the story was beginning to pick up. Good lovecraft fare there. I was enjoying it, up until "The Chase Scene".
