    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I own this entire series, and to tell you, it redefines what all think as horror. In most horror games you can defend yourself with a knife, gun, bomb or other such items, this game is not like that. with the first game the most deadly weapon you have is a rusty old pickaxe, however, considering what you will face, that is nothing, for there are massive " rock-worms" which could break through 8" thick steel alloy doors, and as you can see, this make the game much harder and scarier for a pickaxe an not do anything to it. in the second game you have NO weapons at all, and you discover a virus has infected the place you are in, which cause anyone who catches it to slowly become a zombie-ish alien creature that sounds as though it has come from straight from the gates of hell. If you get scared out of your with by a simple "boo" you WILL faint even by watching this during the day, if you PLAY it at NIGHT... it scares anybody. Oh, and by the way, you find out you have the virus i mentioned earlier. Expand

    Played all three parts. Can definitely say - this game is not for anybody or anytime. You really need to be in the right mood and dedicatePlayed all three parts. Can definitely say - this game is not for anybody or anytime. You really need to be in the right mood and dedicate proper amount of time to engage fully into the atmosphere of the setting - and that is what this game is all about - atmosphere! You creep in darkness, discover pages of someone's diaries written in the style of H.P. Lovecraft, explore mysterious forsaken mines, and holding your breath brave the next corner while crapping your pants at every screech you hear! Awesomeness of horror! :)) Expand
