      Do you like Resident Evil? What about Silent Hill or Alan Wake? If you answered yes to these questions you need to know that these games, and countless others were all inspired in some way by the grand-daddy of the survival horror genre of video games.

      Sure there were games that came before the first Alone In The Dark, but that was really the defining point and the beginning of a new genre. I can still play that first game to this day and enjoy it a


      lot, as i do with the first sequel. When i discovered a new Alone In The Dark game was coming to current generation consoles i was pretty excited and was pretty sure that it would be impossible for them to get it wrong.

      It turns out that my hopes were unfounded as the modern day iteration of the Alone In The Dark universe is very sloppy and really feels unfinished and amateur. To elaborate, the controls in the game are deplorable and still the worst of seem ...


      • in this modern generation of consoles, and i’ll let you know that i play a LOT of different games on a LOT of different systems. The controls issue is repeated in the driving elements too, and it is actually so hard to control the cars that it’s quicker to just run to where it is you are trying to head. The level layouts were good in theory but sometimes it is very easy to get lost and find yourself running in circles looking for a progress marker
        or something to help guide your way properly.

        I feel sorry for anybody that has been introduced to the Alone In The Dark series with this album as you have really missed out on a couple of great games in the past. The simple fact is that this new game doesn’t cut the mustard and really should be avoided. I would have much rathered spend my hard-earned on something else on that fateful day when i first got my copy of the new and all crappy Alone In The Dark.
