  • Summary: As many highschools, Leafmore High is no longer the highschool it used to be. Its walls are mouldering, its books are outdated, its teachers have lost their faith... Following the disappearance of one of their friends, a group of students decide to investigate their high school. This brave step will lead them into a hell they will never forget. But, no matter what happens, they must stick together if they want to throw light on the dark and sordid history of their school. Play five different students, alone or in cooperation, every one of them having their own special aptitude, and use them wisely to defeat the monsters creeping around. [Hydravision] Expand

  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. 76
    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.
  3. While we found Obscure to be a very reasonable addition to the genre, it has to be said that there isn’t really a great deal to get excited about.
  4. 66
    The graphics are purty, the control is decent, the voice acting isn't half bad, and the story's even pretty good. And two player co-op, come on! What more do you people want?
  5. It doesn’t even have those pop-out-and-say-boo moments that the first two Resident Evil games were famous for. That, combined with clunky gameplay and lame monsters, make for one obscure game.
  6. If you are sceptical of games that feature co-operative multi-character play, you needn't worry too much; it's handled reasonably well.
  7. Maneuvering and combat are both very clumsy, and the whole game leaves you wondering about the choices the game designers made. [June 2005, p.95]

    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. We need a third game@! Collapse

    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 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. Expand

    I recently played this game with my cousin and I really enjoyed the game. But I always contemplate whether to play this game or not because in these kind of games you need to play with a friend, the single player mode can be quiet annoying as the CPU can use up a lot of ammo and need constant healing. Its an all round good, I would recommend this game to anybody looking for good multiplayer games. Expand

    Its budget price origins are clear to see but its high school setting and co-operative survival horror gameplay make for an enjoyable, if rather short, experience. Expand
