  1. Thanks to some key improvements, Alone in the Dark: Inferno is a more playable, more satisfying version of this unique adventure.
  2. Inferno is well worth checking out, and even picking up, and it's something that I hope people are willing to go back to if they were left frustrated by the 360 version of the game.

    Alone in the Dark: Inferno is much closer to the developer's original interpretation than the original game allowed.
  4. It's impossible to know for sure, but I can only imagine that if the initial version had been as finely-honed as Inferno, it would have received a much warmer welcome. Instead, thanks to all the negative word-of-mouth generated by the inferior 360 version, Inferno came and went with hardly anyone blinking an eye.
  5. After releasing the Xbox 360 and PC versions with some major problems, Eden Games show us that they got the necessary humility to admit and correct those failures. Now, in Alone in the Dark Inferno, they are really offering the definitive experience in an appealing game directed not only for those who have patience enough do surface all the errors, but for all the fans.
  6. Alone in the Dark proves that with a little time and patience, a good game can be created from innovative ideas.
  7. A great addition to the series that shies away from the mindless killing-fest of other horror games on the market today, yet stays true to the atmospheric horror adventure of its roots. Great to play in the dark – if you dare.
  8. Inferno is closer to the Alone in the Dark that should have been. Atari fixed some crucial flaws and improved other aspects, and yet the game still feels slightly rough.

The story was well thought out and the graphics (esp. lighting) are incredible. It also has some original ideas (like the inventory screen and combing items in a new way). The controls on the other hand are terrible. Driving is near impossible and the rest of the game is a chore to get through. Full Review »

The only problems i had were the controls, which i didnt mind and the graphics could have been better and also vehicle control which felt a little akward, but wasnt a huge thing. Other than that, Inferno has some memorable moments and a story which grips you from the start. Well worth a look, if not a purchase. Full Review »

Terrible controls, confusing game mechanics and bugs are the main problems here, but it did have a good story with some great seat-pieces. Who wouldn't want to drive a taxi during an earthquake in New York?

    This game did a solid job of introducing me to Edward Carnby and the franchise. I just wish that it did that job better.
