Alone in the Dark is a game Bit-Tech really loathe to not like, but at the end of the day they do have to admit that they don't like it and that the game isn't really all that great. It's a real shame because they can tell that Alone in the Dark is actually a real good game underneath. The story in compelling, the presentation is gripping and the gameplay itself mixes a load of styles together to make a final product that is unique and interesting.
Unfortunately, all of that potential is lost underneath a sea of problems. The controls are unwieldy and awful, the graphics regularly freak out and break, the game can't decide what it is or how it wants you to play it and the balancing has got more holes in than the Incredible Hulk's underwear.
