  1. Great story and intriguing plot twists, complete with graphical and aural pleasures, will keep you coming back for more.

    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.

    Despite its many bugs and flaws, the game is still fun to play when it works. The combat is rather uninspired, but it serves to add to the atmosphere. The amount of frustration you'll find in the game should be noted, however.
  4. I understand that the game had not been developed in an English speaking country, but they could have at least found one male and one female actor with decent pronunciation.
  5. Dated technology, distracting controls, and some downright sloppy programming undo what could have been a great game.
  6. TNN fails to frighten and is marred by a few flaws that may frustrate rather than satiate.
  7. A beautiful, yet vacant, "Resident Evil" rip-off full of annoying key hunts, obtuse and frustrating puzzles, and one of the worst "save game" functions ever. But, hey, it sure is pretty.

    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.
