  1. This is one seriously disturbed game, but deep down in my heart I know I could have made it even more unholy if given the chance.
  2. It does make use of the almost bare and gloomy surroundings to conjure up a feeling of despair.
  3. While possessing a solid visual and audio presentation, its gameplay suffers from bizarre puzzle design that is far from intuitive. Although a streamlined interface help to make interacting with game environments easy, the unusual puzzles make it difficult to progress through this intriguing game.

    Good atmosphere, decent music, utterly crappy puzzles.
  5. The pity is that you get the feeling the game would be a lot more effective if the main character had a drier, more morbid sense of humor. As it is, the attempts to crack weird jokes takes away from the otherwise eerie atmosphere of the game.
  6. The puzzle structure, iffy dialogue, and subject matter make this a hard recommendation to a general audience. As the score indicates, unless you’re a hardcore horror/adventure fan, it might be wise to first play the demo, or await a price-drop.
  7. Midnight Nowhere will leave you feeling like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Horror game fans will probably be able to tolerate the game, but others might have a problem.
  8. Unfortunately, having to battle the interface made the game tedious, and I lost interest about a third of the way through.

    Midnight Nowhere has a very creepy atmosphere, excellent puzzles, and great voice acting. If it weren't for the terrible translations, it might be one of the best adventure games of the year.

    This game involved too much on 'password' inorder to proceed with the plot, so if you are not the sort that like to read letters, This game involved too much on 'password' inorder to proceed with the plot, so if you are not the sort that like to read letters, memorize numbers just to get a door open, then do give this game a skip, it involved a lot like this which i can testified but if you like those dark creepy atmosphere with a few good plot and don't mind chopping a head off somebody's( yes, there is a chance...), just give it a try but only purchase if the price is right.
