    Deeply atmospheric and profoundly disturbing, 2Dark presents a seductive mix of lo-fi Hitman-like stealth coupled with Hotline Miami claustrophobia induced adrenaline rushes. The presentation and initial pricing will not be to everyone’s taste but for horror fans, here is one to remember.

    Alone in the Dark's creator is back to the horror genre with a stealth puzzle game full of gore and gloomy feelings. The idea is nice but flawed with some technical issues.

    The creator of survival horror delivers a very unique blend of stealth-action and surreal adventure. It is not as groundbreaking as the original Alone in the Dark, but still deserves a look.

    Disturbing, violent, gloomy, 2Dark is a nice old-school looking game with an amazing atmosphere. Those who love survival and stealth will find a truly decent challenge.

    If you enjoy a good horror with a bleak tale – and can stomach seeing pixelated children in cages or mauled by animals – then 2Dark is definitely worth checking out.

    The creator of Alone in the Dark, Frederick Raynal, crafts an interesting mixture of stealth and horror. Despite an unreliable IA and some frustrating gameplay elements, 2Dark is a well-made twisted noir which take the player in the depth of a rotten and dark town: the infamous Gloomywood.

    Level design is cramped and unfair, the controls are imprecise, the interface is from a completely different genre of game and is extremely cluttered and unhelpful, and the whole thing is just painful. 2Dark is extremely frustrating, extremely badly designed, and extremely not fun. I’m glad it wiped my saves. Avoid.

    Sin duda alguna sus grandes méritos son su excelente ambientación y diseño de niveles, unido a un peculiar apartado visual y una banda sonora de una calidad excelente, que nos meten de lleno en esta macabra experiencia. Bastante atrevida por cierto, ya que toca un tema tan sensible como los niños de formas muy salvajes.

    No es un título para todo el mundo, y solo unas cuantas personas sabrán disfrutarlo completamente, pero las que lo hagan se encontraran con un título que ha querido salirse del patrón establecido en este género y ha querido tocar nuevas ideas. No lo ha conseguido del todo, pero es algo digno de elogio.

Tell me, have you ever waken up one morning, feeling this is such a nice day, but carving for a game about pedophilia and child torture in some form? Well, now you have it! But if you think this is an atmospheric, smart game that will make you THINK about these horrible things, you're mistaken. Nope, pure shock value in the cheapest way possible. And yeah, you might be an alcoholic ex-cop, but why would every single person, even nurses be a lethal melee menace to you. Somehow pedophiles have super strength now, taking X bullets before dying?

    Again, to sum it up: no atmosphere at all, no philosophical journey, just some very obvious shock value achieved by descriptive child torture. Rubbish.

It's your typical indie horror game that can't actually achieve any sort of atmosphere but hey at least youtubers will play it and scream like banshee's for that sweet ad money.

    The devs are **** too. They took kickstarter backers money and used it to had Denuvo to the game. I really hope they like wasting all that money though with CPY cracking the newest version of it so fast.
