    Good concepts are fine, but if you cannot back those up with solid gameplay, then unfortunately it is always going to be a lost cause.

    Alone in the Dark: Illumination brings some interesting ideas to the table, but they're terribly executed.

    23 years, and this is how it ends? Horrifying, and not in a good way. Illumination is an utter failure on all fronts, a derivative, boring and disappointing shooter. What a sad ending for this legendary series.

    A complete and utter disaster. It might spark the curiosity of trash fans, and that's all there is to say.

    Alone In The Dark: Illumination comes across as trying to be a Left 4 Dead 2 and Resident Evil 6 hybrid while doing absolutely nothing right, and favoring to do everything wrong.

    Alone in the Dark: Illumination is ugly in every sense of the word, not just visually – though it is about as attractive as an anus in an eye socket. Hideous both inside and out, it’s the consummate fraud that hides behind a recognizable name to deliver interactive poison.

    How on earth could this game make it to a release state? And why would Atari kill the franchise that started survival horror and made Resident Evil what it is today?

    A pale shell of the franchise. The A.I. is bad, no voice acting, a wire frame of a storyline, and long loading times for sub par graphics. AA pale shell of the franchise.

    I used to like the Alone in the Dark series, but this edition looks and feels like Wes Craven **** into a box fan and made a game of it. I'dI used to like the Alone in the Dark series, but this edition looks and feels like Wes Craven **** into a box fan and made a game of it. I'd expect this from a Pre-Alpha release, but the gameplay just feels like a bore. As someone who tries to find the best in most negative releases, this game feels like a 2002 game with ambition kicked to the curb. Expand
