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.
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.
Probably the most Lovecraftian game ever to be made

Summary: I waited years and years for this game to come out, checking in on the forum belonging to the now vanished company again and again for news about this game based on the literary works of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, the well-known author of horror and weird tales in the early 1900's. To make a long story short, through the work of a single individual with helpers, the game finally came out AFTER the company was gone, and that is the reason for the few bugs remaining in the...
Summary: All these people rating this game so low! Are you serious? This is the greatest horror game I have ever played. The atmosphere is amazing and it has so many intense moments. Everyone is complaining about how "difficult" and "unfair" it is. I completed the "Attack of the Fishmen" part (the one everyone seems to complain about) after three tries! Just be patient when playing this game. Some people are just too used to other types of games.
Summary: Based on author H.P. Lovecrafts many works involving the town of Innsmouth and the sea god Dagon, Bethesda struck right on target with Dark Corners of the Earth. The game contains many different gameplay elements, manifest through different parts of the game. from stealth to investigation to shooter to an indescribable scramble for safety, this game delivers fright and fun.
