Alone in the Dark

 

In 1992 the small French videogame company Infrogrames made a game set in a Victorian-era New England mansion; where demon dogs, ghosts and other horrors ran riot while Paranormal Investigator Edward Carnby tried to escape with his life and soul...

Alone in the Dark

 

A next-gen impressionist that won't be winning new faces

Grand orchestral tunes ; Huge scope of ideas ; Amazing set pieces

Dodgy voice acting ; Unreliable controls ; Full of bugs

But these events are few and far between, and the odd hateful set pieces will surely outlast them in your memory. The runaway forklift truck, a foray into a confusing forest labyrinth seemingly textured with dog scat, the god-awful steering and...

Alone In The Dark Review

 

The original survival horror makes a return, but is Edward Carnby's adventure spine-tingling or a walk in the (Central) Park...

Episodic structure ; Tense set-pieces ; Haunting score

Driving is underwhelming ; Glitch-tastic ; Roots of Evil is just padded gameplay

Whilst not as executed quite to the level we'd hoped for, Alone in the Dark remains an original take on the survival horror genre, with its DVD-style structure and environmental interaction worthy of praise. That said, players will have to look past...

Alone In The Dark (2008)

 

Never mind its 16-year legacy in the games industry and familiar survival-horror trappings ­ Alone In The Dark genuinely feels like something new.

Alone In The Dark (Wii) review

 

Afraid of the dark? You will be rn – for all the wrong reasons

Nowhere near the game we hoped for. Alone In The Dark should be considered strictly casual consumption only.

Consumer review by: alternnocturn (epinions.com)

A horrible, untested, unplayable "game"

 

I bought Alone in the Dark for Wii because not only was it cheap, I thought it would be a decent horror experience considering I've heard good things about the original Alone in the Dark for the PC. The game starts out fairly decent. The pacing is...

Interesting inventory system

Glitchy, glitchy, glitchy

Alone in the Dark- Wii

 

dissapointed, feels like playing old AitD, really linear gameplay ( have to stand in EXACT spot and do EXACT thing ) which makes it more miss than a hit. Bored after hour of playing

Consumer review by: A Customer (sofacinema.co.uk)

Hilariously Terrible Surprise

 

I actually bought this game rather than rent it because i had seen the trailers on the xbox 360 and thought it looked worth a try. I had traded it in the next day (would have the same day if it wasnt past shop closing time!) it was that bad. Their...
