  1. Even though it is supposed to appeal to die hard survival horror fans, most will find this game not only steals the best of their favorite games, but does it badly.
  2. All together, Obscure: The Aftermath is a pretty bland survival horror experience.

    It's as if Hydravision made a list of all that's tiresome about this genre then carefully made sure not one item on the list was left out of this game. Then added co-op to apologise for it. [Issue#157, p.91]
  4. Ugly, last-gen visuals further dampen the fear factor. Muddy textures and low poly counts cause scenery and monsters to blend together into a murky mess.

    Best game series EVER. Instead of surviving the horrors of zombies and monsters as typical police or war veterans, you play as un experienced students who need to survive the horrors of Fallcreak. Great story, great graphics and great fun factor. Highly recommend it. Full Review »

    I give this my highest recommendation if you love resident evil and silent hill! This game is one of the coolest ive seen, and sadly there has not been a third announced. I would love to see this game. This game got underated by IGN and other joke ratings, well, so far all i see is good good good! Sure, the voice acting is horrible, but its a GREAT game. Full Review »

    Not a scary game, though it wants to be. The story here is pretty dumb and gives you the feel of playing a brainless teen horror movie, where a group of attractive young people get offed by whatever flavor of the month boogieman they've mustered (terribly written/acted dialogue). This time out it's pretty much Resident Evil with plant monsters. At first you may be slightly creeped out, but that will quickly change to just frustration.

    Enemy variety is limited but not terrible, the atmosphere is dark and dreary with plenty to look at. The Puzzles in the game are great, they seem rather intuitive but clever with no real help from the game. The real way this game shines is the fact that it can be played co-operatively. And I would suggest it because it becomes a much better experience that way. It can be hard to get used to the idea of 2 people on one screen and the camera is less than forgiving and will be the cause of a lot of your deaths but it's the only survival horror game I can think of that offers this mode and that sort of puts it in a league of its own.

    It is for that reason that I can recommend this game. It's not great, or polished and it WILL be frustrating but it's fun for you and a friend.
