Alone in the Dark holds a soft spot in the cold dark hearts of survival horror fans. Considered by many to be the first survial horror game made back in 1992, it did things in the game that are still the standard for survival horror games today. At least as far as exploration and puzzle solving go. It's a shame, though, that not a single Alone in the Dark title released after that has managed to capture some of the magic of that original title, and the survival horror genre has come a long way since those beginnings. Seven years after the last failure at reviving the series, Infogrames/Atari seems to think enough time has passed that people will have forgotten the last horrible Alone in the Dark game and so they have rebooted the franchise with the latest title.
