This game was pretty great considering some of the later titles. The dark atmosphere really did provide a nice scary feeling. The lack of combat wasn't really a turn off to me because the environments alone really drove home the survival horror feeling. This game is definitely worth a look if you want to go back to the good times of survival horror. It's really cheap on gog or steam and if you just want a chill horror game then this is perfect.
Alone In The Dark: The New Nightmare has a dark and dreadful story full of interesting plot twists. The graphics are pretty good but bugs and glitches spoil the fun a bit. Nevertheless, if you`re a fan of horror games or this franchise, you`ll have a lot of fun with this game!
An enjoyable iteration in this old adventure franchise, beautiful, with great atmosphere, and two characters progressing in parallel.
What's not perfect is a strange saving system (fortunately, the required medallions are abundant,) and dialogues that are unnecessarily repeated even when you saved the game after they occurred.
Not much to mention in the bad department. A bandage-encounter here and there, like the zombie that appears right in front of you, when and only when the camera changes, making its bite unavoidable.
