BlackKnight Posted June 19, 2008 Share Posted June 19, 2008 German website 4players.de has reviewed the final build of Alone in the Dark. They rate it 68/100 on the Xbox 360, and less on the PS2 and Wii. This comes as a shame to me, since I was really hoping this one would turn out halfway-decent. The link to the review is at the bottom but have a gander at these Pros and Cons first; ProsImpressive active combat systemRelatively open game worldAuthentic use of fireAtmospheric Central ParkWell-staged sequences drivingNice skill depositsGood Interaction with objectsGood particle effects (360)DVD-Player Chapter features are good for new players and the frustrated (Only on 360, PC) ConsStory? Amnesia again ...No thrills, especially for a horror game.Poor dramatic direction and cinematographyWorst supporting female character in the history of the seriesAnnoying trial and error sequencesToo easy to burn monstersToo much goofy slangOver the top orchestral and choir interruptionsProblems with motion detection (Wii)Nasty clipping and screen tearing (360)Imagery on the cover is very misleading (360)Faces and animation are extremely badNo DVD-Player features (Wii, PS2)Muddy texturesOnly a few monster typesMost of the story is conveyed through text (letters, reports etc.)I did my best to clean up those translations but check this translation of the review in full; Source: http://translate.google.com.au/translate?u...en&ie=UTF-8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
