Work your way through a haunted Central Park in Atari's cross-platform survival horror title, Alone In The Dark.
for a game that looked so incredible this is truly a let down on an epic scale and now that I know what to expect I won't be getting the ps3 version which will have had more dev time on its side. The even worse part, Atari and Phil Harrison said the Ps3 version wasn't where they wanted it in terms of quality. That is their exact words. So, that leads me to believe that if the xbox 360 version did meet their standards of quality and it turned out like this, then the Ps3 version is really going to be a huge bowel movement.
This was looking good aswell. I might wait for a few more reviews but it looks like another dissapointment.
I'm just glad I don't always blindly follow reviews.this game is innovative and quite fun.I don't see the cotrol issues.they work great and I have no problem.I wonder if the people who said the controls were bad are just atari haters and are trying to bring the game down.I give at least an 8 of 10.Great cinematic ingame sequences very good graphics, innovative controls that are intuitive and easy to use,and perfectly fine voice acting.I find any site thta rates this game low not worth my time ever again because they cant be trusted.For me ,this game is great. Its upsetting that the reviews will keep the lemmings from trying this game for themselves. I should add that I'm playing mostly in first person view and that may account for the difference in opinion I just dont get why there is a control problem. left,right ,up,down on left analog is left, right, up ,down on screen.on the right stick moving it left swings weaopn left ,swing right it goes right,and so on ....why is that so hard for these fools?
i've played a few games that scored like this and really liked the games and i've played gaems that score really high and hated them. it's not the scores that bother me, rather, the content in the reviews. the poor game mechanics and the tedious ending levels are what i'm concerned with.
That's a shame. This game looked like it had potential.
Why is that every time a Excellent game comes the next on the list Sucks. What i mean is. GTA4 -> Haze....MGS4 -> Alone on the Dark. I think that's because they raise the bar.
A(flop) In The Dark. :)
That review was actually what I was thinking, I didn't want to hate the game...but it just would allow me to like it. They were trying something new...but it just didn't work.
OK, so some great ideas, but poor execution. That's not too bad. Maybe if some people actually become exposed to the game, some newly developed games can learn from its mistakes.
the game is a big letdown. nice ideas but horrible controls and camera. rent it .. you have to play it!
alone in the dark solid! that woulda been its only hope releasing this close to mgs4!!!!!!!!
that happen to this game, its getting some really bad reviews, i thought its going to top resident evil 5...
another xbox flop. pretty soon it might even surpass the wii in crappy games.
Atari is pretty much done after this. Shame.
I like it The main characters movement is clunky The game tries a lot of different play styles but none feel fully implemented Rent it at least I did and kept it It's better than Dark Sector
