GamerVision writes: "The buzz surrounding Alone in the Dark in the lead-up to its release was less than optimistic. Several early reviewers tore the game to shreds, and Atari, the game's publisher, threatened lawsuits against the publications with these reviews. Not only that, but the title was supposedly a victim of its many delays, with gamers complaining about numerous inexcusable issues ranging from mediocre graphics to game-breaking glitches. However, for every voice insulting the title's negatives features, there was another praising its virtues. The gap between the two opposing points of view on the game became wider and wider with each review. Now, after playing Alone in the Dark, I can finally understand the dual nature of this debate."
