    I'm not quite as warm to it as I was before, but it's an eerie experience that's seeped into my real life.

    Slender: The Arrival has solid qualities, as well as some hit or miss tendencies, leaning towards the miss side. Undoubtedly, this one is under the horror classification and does its job throwing out its scary surprises, and for better or worse, there are still some accidental funny moments that you can’t help but laugh at.

    A no-frills port of an already underweight horror package. There's much other developers can learn from Slender's terror tactics, but we suspect they've got the message by now. Give the tall lad a miss.

    Slender: The Arrival boasts some genuinely scary moments, but offers little beyond them.

    Slender: The Arrival is the definition of a one-trick pony. But it’s a mangy-looking pony, and it isn’t especially good at its trick. It is a shaky start for a series that hasn’t left me all that excited for any sequels. Blue Isle Studios nailed the tense atmosphere, and with some improvements to graphics and story, it could be the foundation of a decent horror franchise.

    Slender: The Arrival manages to dull Slendy's mystique by shining a light on him and revealing his terrible secret: he's the star of a really crappy video game.

    Although simple, the game is weirdly beautiful and subtle. It starts with you in a sunny, lovely forest. Birds singing. but then as youAlthough simple, the game is weirdly beautiful and subtle. It starts with you in a sunny, lovely forest. Birds singing. but then as you descend down a path, the sun is setting and before long its suddenly become eerie. The music is haunting for sure. Played in the dark, headset on, it plays games with your mind and I'll admit it, i jumped off my seat many times. Some people hate that a game can make you do that - I love it!! It's pure head games in my mind. And iits only $10 bucks, so its a fun bargain. I hope these guys can do more! Expand

    It can get a bit repetitive if you keep dying over and over again so many times from Slender Man or Masky (or whatever the thing is called).It can get a bit repetitive if you keep dying over and over again so many times from Slender Man or Masky (or whatever the thing is called). But its creepy atmosphere and dark looking yet pretty levels make this a worthy sequel to Slender: The Eight Pages. Expand

    i bought this game on the xbox one summer sale at £4.im a fan of these types of games outlast alien isolation etc but this game although doesi bought this game on the xbox one summer sale at £4.im a fan of these types of games outlast alien isolation etc but this game although does have its moments of fear it is ruined by ancient controls and graphics that maybe just me but i suffer eye strain and headaches when playing also level design is frustrating.

    it plays like a 10 year old game my advice is buy outlast and dlc not much more money and is so much better imo.
