Good graphics, solid art direction, some clever puzzles, and nifty pyrotechnics cannot save Alone in the Dark from its woeful gameplay. In what has to be the biggest surprise of the year -- this game is a tremendous failure.
What's Hot: Sharp graphics and art direction; Some of the puzzles are great; DVD chapter skipping is a novel idea.
What's Not: From the inventory system to the camera to the gameplay -- it's just a train wreck.
Verdict: Fry it
