  1. While each game features gameplay a step above the other, a few flaws carried themselves from title to title, never being fully resolved.
  2. The awkward camera angles used in the games do make movement and fighting difficult in some cases, but fans of adventure games will find plenty to enjoy.
  3. Both action hounds and graphic-adventure fans will find plenty of satisfying challenges here, and the music and audio effects will help all but the most hardened gamers suspend their sense of disbelief and become wrapped up in the mysteries and dangers that await.
  4. Undoubtedly, Alone in the Dark remains one of the most ground-breaking games of all time... Although the second and third games lack the magic of the first one, the collection remains a treat for any adventure fan.

    The games that gave birth to a genre. All of them good

    Alone in the Dark 1:
    The beginning of it all. Time has not been kind as the animation is almost comedic today. But I remember at the time when this was new, this game was scary as hell! Puzzles were hard, yet not impossible to figure out. The atmosphere in this game kept you on the edge of your seat almost all the time. This is truly the Godfather of Survival Horror.

    Alone in the Dark 2:
    Pretty much exactly the same as the first game, but improving on everything. Bigger environment better visuals. More solid combat. The only thing in this game that was weaker than the original was the story, but even that was good too.

    Alone in the Dark 3:
    Perhaps the weakest of the three games. Visually it improves, but story and gameplay do seem to suffer a bit a time as this style of control was getting a little stale at the time.

    Overall: A fantastic trilogy and every game that aspires to be a survival horror game should take its queues from here.
