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: 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.

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 sanity. It will also show you fear in a new light. The creator of Cthulhu and all of its friends, H.P. Lovecraft had a vision of darkness, insanity and fear.
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. Before I talk more of the game, two things; first, this is a masterpiece and it is such a terrible shame that the sequels were cancelled, and two, despite what some may say, other than the lack of (superb) music, this works perfectly fine on the Xbox...
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 first encountered Call Of Cthulhu: Dark Corners Of The Earth a few years back, i found it for around 3 pound in a game store in a buy two get the third free offer. So i pikced it up, not looking at the back of the box at all, in fact i didnt look at it at all i just wanted the cheap deal. That night i had a few mates over to play the other games i had bought, Forbidden Siren 2 and Project Zero 3.
Excerpt: "...Lovecraft's timless horror classic, the Call of Cthulhu. === Campaign: === _Dark Corners_ begins as a private investigator in the early 1900s is trying desperately to unravel he mysteries of his past, especially as they relate to the Cthulhu Cult and the strange disappearances which have been occurring in New England. Over the course of many diverse levels, the player is sent to reclaim their past, venturing back into the darkest realms of towns ...
Pros: Great atmosphere, deep story, very frightful
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.. it isn't as flashy as the gluttony of shooters on the consoles, which is maybe why it didn't get the critical acclaim it deserved, but in my opinion its brilliant.
