    So, sure, Obscure: The Aftermath doesn't exactly succeed as a horror game, but it is fun, with some good usage of the Wii remote. [Apr 2008, p.89]

    A surprisingly good game for about thirty bucks. It's generally worth it for some fun co-op, great atmosphere and really beautiful music.
  3. It's not perfect, but it does offer some solid entertainment value despite some flaws.

    It's utterly silly, cheesy as hell and only really worth getting for a bit of a laugh with your horror fan friends, yes, but even so it's still alright. [Dec 2008, p.97]
  5. The controls on Wii are forced and unnatural and hamper what is an otherwise solid game design.
  6. It's not embarrassing and even possesses some thrilling moments, but you'd have to ignore some quite serious flaws to fully enjoy it.
  7. Nintendo Gamer

    Not without its moments, but it's needlessly confrontational without necessarily raising any hairs. [July 2008, p.60]
  8. All in all, Obscure: The Aftermath is a hodgepodge of poorly implemented design ideas and sub-par horror elements.

    This isn't a bad game by any stretch. Really as far as Wii games go it's kind of nice to see a more adult oriented game. The issues are thatThis isn't a bad game by any stretch. Really as far as Wii games go it's kind of nice to see a more adult oriented game. The issues are that the cameras are kind of a pain in the ass to get aimed in the right directions and the save points get to be ridicules at times. Overall I have really enjoyed playing the game and would recommend it if you can pick it up for 20 bucks or less. Full Review »
