  1. For a game that relies on teamwork and the use of light as a weapon, you can't go too wrong with a budget priced title that looks and sounds as good as this one even without the online component.
  2. It doesn’t stray too far off the survival horror beaten path, but Obscure is a great game that already has us thinking ’sleeper hit of the year’.
  3. It's a scream of a good time and even though it's not perfect, it manages to entertain almost every step of the way.

    The co-op mode is almost worth the price of admission alone, while the hidden bonuses you'll receive for beating the game add even more to its overall value. Just don't expect anything too enthralling when it comes to plot advancement or puzzle solving.
  5. There's no better fodder for the boneheaded premise of old-school RE... than the high school slasher flick, and ObsCure serves it up right. [May 2005, p.50]

    Best game series EVER. Instead of surviving the horrors of zombies and monsters as typical police or war veterans, you play as un experiencedBest 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.

    Ever play a game thats gonna be memoriable and nostagic later? No? Well this is one of them. This has got to be the best game ive playedEver play a game thats gonna be memoriable and nostagic later? No? Well this is one of them. This has got to be the best game ive played besides its sequel. The sequel is AMAZING and the only reason ratings are bad from critics are that silent hill creators PAID THEM to rate it so low. This is a very great game, that im waiting patiently for the 3rd for PS3. Full Review »
