  1. Great story and intriguing plot twists, complete with graphical and aural pleasures, will keep you coming back for more.
  2. I wasn’t overly impressed with the weak storyline and drab voice acting, but I must give kudos to any game that scares the hell out of me. If it weren’t for that, this game would easily rate a 65.

    While it wasn't "Undying" scary, it definitely had some moments that made me jump and scream like Tal when he got his... well, nevermind. All in all, if you're a fan of this type of game, there's a good chance you'll like it.

    I think it is overall good exept the few flaws, this game would easily be a six besides the fact that it scared the hell out of me.

    An enjoyable iteration in this old adventure franchise, beautiful, with great atmosphere, and two characters progressing in parallel.An enjoyable iteration in this old adventure franchise, beautiful, with great atmosphere, and two characters progressing in parallel.

    What's not perfect is a strange saving system (fortunately, the required medallions are abundant,) and dialogues that are unnecessarily repeated even when you saved the game after they occurred.

    Not much to mention in the bad department. A bandage-encounter here and there, like the zombie that appears right in front of you, when and only when the camera changes, making its bite unavoidable.

    This game was pretty great considering some of the later titles. The dark atmosphere really did provide a nice scary feeling. The lack ofThis game was pretty great considering some of the later titles. The dark atmosphere really did provide a nice scary feeling. The lack of combat wasn't really a turn off to me because the environments alone really drove home the survival horror feeling. This game is definitely worth a look if you want to go back to the good times of survival horror. It's really cheap on gog or steam and if you just want a chill horror game then this is perfect.
