    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

    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.

    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.
  2. The release stands alone as the darkest disappointment those of us who cherish this franchise have yet encountered.
  3. Dated technology, distracting controls, and some downright sloppy programming undo what could have been a great game.
