    The problem is not wholly in the execution or even in the intent; the very act itself is questionable. After playing this, I had to ask myself, “What is the point of this?” If I wanted the same experience, I could have easily gone back to Silent Hill or Racoon City for a much richer, nostalgia-filled trip.

    There is nothing at all worth recommending about this game, especially when there is no shortage of free titles that do a far more effective job of scaring gamers out of their wits instead of their wallets.

    Though it seeks to mimic survival horror classics like Silent Hill and Resident Evil 2, BlackSoul fails to capture any of what made those titles great while highlighting their worst aspects.

    BlackSoul takes one step forward and two awkwardly-placed steps back time and time again. What could have been an impressive homage to the horror genre ends up feeling like a soulless bargain bin find.

    Never ever would I have thought that I’d rather play the abysmal Resident Evil 6. This could have been the return to old school survival horror that a lot of fans were hoping for. But in the end the scariest part of Black Soul is the fact that somebody actually was convinced this was ready to be released.
