    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@!

    Good 'ol Studio turned bad with games like Alone in the Dark and Fairy-tale-fights. Back when this studio was good.

    Voice acting needs work though...
    I won't call it scary, that's what the Wii spin-off succeeds in (Hey! The Wii is good after all!)

    what a top game!! it may not stack up to the likes of resident evil but its got it where it counts. fun, compelling gameplay, decent graphics and sound and some good plot twists, though the story had a bit to be desired. one major letdown was the fact that it was all over WAY too quickly. i finished it in 5 and a half hours on normal mode!!??? however there are some extra unlockables if what a top game!! it may not stack up to the likes of resident evil but its got it where it counts. fun, compelling gameplay, decent graphics and sound and some good plot twists, though the story had a bit to be desired. one major letdown was the fact that it was all over WAY too quickly. i finished it in 5 and a half hours on normal mode!!??? however there are some extra unlockables if you can manage to finish it on hard mode. despite the shortness of it i still reccommend you buy it. if you are new to the genre you should probably rent it. happy gaming!

    This game looks so sweet. The videos and images of this game look awesome. This game is going to have good graphics. Although this game looks a little like the Resident Evil games, this game is going to be alot different and alot more scarier then the Resident Evil games. Its story will be different and maybe alot better then the Resident Evil games. So if you love the Resident Evil games This game looks so sweet. The videos and images of this game look awesome.

    Mediocre german Resident Evil wannabe. Don't even bother when it comes out in U.S. or U.K.

  1. The cheapness of the visuals and lack of convincing delivery from the voice actors ultimately knocks off a few marks, but on the whole it's a decent package that true aficionados of the genre will welcome as an interesting departure. ["Obscure"]
  2. Like good frosting on a slightly stale cake. It's good and it's sweet at times, but it's awfully dry and hollow.

    A solid survival horror game that takes the classic formula and adds a couple of cool innovations. It's more of an upgrade than an evolution, but the American high school setting feels fresh and is very well put together, with smooth graphics, a nice balance of shooting and exploration and a story that, while very generic, just about holds your attention.
