    Didn't find it all that challenging. I thought it to be sort of an RE rip off.

    Good graphics and puzzles that have you searching the internet for walkthroughs. Only problem is a flashlight is considered a weapon.

    Not bad, not good either. Graphics kinda crummy compared to more recent games. Puzzle moderately challenging. Cross between Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Worst thing is camera views, short loading sequences every 5 minutes, and the control of the character. Wow, all this criticism and i've only had the game for 3 hours.

  1. Lack of originality aside, this is still a good and highly playable game.
  2. A bit like a B-Dreamcast game, and will probably secure a place in your library for that reason, so maybe you can skip the Eric Roberts movie after all.
  3. Superb graphics, challenging puzzles, morbid acts, and eerie noises will have you playing until the wee hours of the morning.
