    Yea, it's intersting but all the blank searching around with no idea what and where to find stuff. In order to play the game even you have to find the horror monitor, if you don't you're dead. The controlls are sub-par, jumping running everthing is too much work. It's not the worst I guess so I gave it a fair score.

    This was meant to be a cheesy horror game. It accomplished That. It's fun, and very different. It's a different take on survival horror for sure. It's also my most expensive Dreamcast game. It's quirky, and fun to play, and to watch someone play. It's a must have, if you want to laugh, and jump a little. If Scream were a video game it should be done like this.

  1. Control and camera issues, and the strange stop-n-go gameplay that Illbleed sports may be too annoying to make people want to endure the game's six levels. If you can get past those problems, then you may find something that is actually pretty enjoyable.

    I can appreciate the effort that went into the unique gameplay mechanics of Illbleed, but the clumsy controls and frustrating camera angles, make this game pretty difficult to play.
  3. The wacky control requirements kill any desire to play the game. If you have a lot of patience, and a weird sense of humor, you may get a kick out of Illbleed.
