Lone Survivor: Director’s Cut Review | GIZORAMA

Eldar Basic, GIZORAMA - "Let’s get this out of the way first, Lone Survivor is a love letter to Silent Hill, and what a love letter it is. Horrifying undertones, shuffling un-dead creatures, a disturbing apartment building with a general feeling of dread are what you’ll be dealing with in this survival horror incarnation. Deep and dark sound design shadow the game, while screeches, groans and moans paint a wonderfully gray pallet of mind fatigue and distress. Lone Survivor is a 2-D game, but don’t let that deter you or make you think that it isn’t positively frightening, because while simple in nature, it manages to create an atmosphere of horror never before seen in a side scrolling quest. Immediately in the game, you are told to turn the volume up, and to turn your lights off. I believe that this is the only way to experience Lone Survivor as it was meant to be enjoyed. You don’t know what you’re getting yourself into, it knows that, and preys upon that fact." (Lone Survivor, Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut, PS3) 3.5/5
