    The game is wonderfully scary, an absolute joy to look at, very hard to stop playing.
  2. A thoroughly absorbing title, complete with a suspenseful script, top-notch production values, the perfect balance of action and adventuring, puzzles that are intelligently integrated into the plot, and big dollops of atmosphere.
  3. This game is what the movie should have been.
  4. Spank!

    Certainly not the deepest title you'll ever play and the control system can be horribly frustrating, but the atmosphere makes it worth persevering with, especially if you liked the movie.
  5. Despite its flaws, Blair Witch 1 does an admirable job of sustaining an atmosphere of suspense and horror from start to finish, and for some people that may be worth the price of admission.
  6. This the most frightening game I’ve ever played. This is due to two factors: the light-sourcing and the sound.
  7. Call us big girls' blouses if you wish, but this one's scary. Alas, it's also flawed to buggery.

    I finally got this game after the price drop because I read some bad reviews and its one of those am glad I got it situations. I have only I finally got this game after the price drop because I read some bad reviews and its one of those am glad I got it situations. I have only played 10 minutes of the spooky town Level 1 where you talk with townspeople to get more of blair witch gossip. The graphics are amazing and it feels like you are playing in sort of sleepy hollow type movie. Expand

    Spooky! I became a complete nervous wreck playing just the INTERACTIVE TRAILER, without the horrible control...this game would have a 10.

    Much better than I thought it would be. After a poor start it actually gets quite scary.

    This is probably one of the best horror games that I've ever played. Graphically, it is excellent, containing real-time shadows, high qualityThis is probably one of the best horror games that I've ever played. Graphically, it is excellent, containing real-time shadows, high quality textures and a lot cool effects, and we are talking about a game which was released in 2000! The performance is great (the only problems are some graphic bugs that are present when you play the game with new video cards, which make me unable to give it the perfect score, 8). The plot is very nice and intriguing, and sometimes deep. There are, especially at the start of the game, a lot of "scarejumps". The soundtracks are amazing, that are perfectly suited to the circumstances (there are even sounds in the installation of the game!). The gameplay is cool and fun, different from all mainstream videogames. This is a real horror game that makes you get fear. The only bad note about this game is that it is short (you can complete it in 3-5-11 hours).

    - Plot: 6.5; Tech (Graphics performance): 7.5; Gameplay: 6.5; Longevity: 5; Audio: 7. Avg.: 6.5 0.5 bonus score (innovative game). Rank: 7/10. Amazing game!
