The best scares in this game came from trying to navigate the frozen ship and hearing a door slam behind you, the howling of the wind through a broken window, or fear of dying from lack of heat. Instead the majority of the game is cluttered with clumsy, coverless firefights resulting in lots of cheap deaths. Poorly optimized graphics mean sudden single digit dips in frame rate happen often before, during, and after battles.

Aug 12, 2013Omg. Finally its over. Im so happy that i got it from a cheap bundle. In level 7 i had enough and i started to use god mode cheat. The melee weapons (especially fire axe) are soon useless for fighting enemies. Axe swing will disorient you so much that u are pretty helpless against faster enemies. Both Mosin rifles are EPIC fails. Reloading time is like 20+ minutes...reloading time and inefficiency is a BIG problem also with other firearms. And that folk-story wtf was with that...How exactly should that fit in with the main plot? AND WHY AM I LOSING HEALTH WHEN I LISTEN THAT DAMN FOLK-STORY U idiots!
So yes, this game got very fast boring and frustrating. Im very disappointed.… Full Review »
