  1. I recommend this title for those seeking a good co-op title for the Wii that doesn’t involve two plumbers. If you're still not sure on whether or not to pick this title up, then I would hold off until it drops to the $20 dollar mark.
  2. It's not perfect, but it does offer some solid entertainment value despite some flaws.
  3. So, sure, Obscure: The Aftermath doesn't exactly succeed as a horror game, but it is fun, with some good usage of the Wii remote. [Apr 2008, p.89]
  4. All in all, Obscure: The Aftermath is a hodgepodge of poorly implemented design ideas and sub-par horror elements.
  5. This survival horror sequel is clumsy and frustrating and not suspenseful in the least.
  6. Obscure II was an acceptable game on the PlayStation 2, since it was made as a former generation consolegame. The graphics are average and have some clear mistakes. The controls feel illogical and make the Wii version of Obscure II the worst game of all its console releases.
  7. 30
    More tedious than scary and more frustrating than shocking.

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.

    This isn't a bad game by any stretch. Really as far as Wii games go it's kind of nice to see a more adult oriented game. The issues are thatThis isn't a bad game by any stretch. Really as far as Wii games go it's kind of nice to see a more adult oriented game. The issues are that the cameras are kind of a pain in the ass to get aimed in the right directions and the save points get to be ridicules at times. Overall I have really enjoyed playing the game and would recommend it if you can pick it up for 20 bucks or less. Expand
