  1. It will make you scream, but not because of fear. It will cause you pain, but not in a figured way. And it will give you nightmares, but for motives that are not even related with its storyline.

    This game is truly scary, great sounds add to the creepiness. The use of the stylus here is second only to a pc, controls are very good. It This game is truly scary, great sounds add to the creepiness. The use of the stylus here is second only to a pc, controls are very good. It looks really good for the ds as well. Good storyline, it's both horror and thriller, good plot twists. A GREAT entry in the horror genre. Full Review »

At the start it is amazing, creepy and gory, but then it starts to get a bit repetitive.

    For start, the game looks amazing. It's like Doom 3 meets Silent Hill, and for a DS, this looks amazing. Gameplay is fun, well for a little bit, but then it become a little boring. Bosses on the other hand, are just way too easy, if you know what you are doing. The enemies are hard to kill at the start, but then it becomes too easy, so they put the same monster, with more health and make it look green.

    Saving system is bad. It saves every single time you go into a room, and if you die, you have to restart the whole chapter again, which is frustrating.

    Story is weak as water, at first, it was interesting, but then the twists happen when you keep on going into the game, but the twists are almost the same exact thing. Your wife died, and it repeats that all the time, but the ending twist was actually good.

    Over and out, it's a great game for the DS, but it looses it's welcome after a while, with zero replay value.
