ONM review: Alone In The Dark

Call ONM back when you finish the game, eh chaps?

It's with a great sense of anticipation that ONM approach the launch of Atari's brand new thriller adventure game. Nintendo gamers haven't been treated to a mature game with a genuinely thrilling storyline since Resident Evil 4 was released over a year ago and it's about time fans of the genre got something to stick their teeth into. ONM are sorry to report though that you might want to chomp down on your Wii Remote for a while because the two words that immediately spring to mind here would have to be 'utter' and 'disappointment'.

Alone In The Dark is a thriller adventure game set in the city of New York. You begin the game clueless of your origins or your identity with your only concrete knowledge being that people around you are being slaughtered by an unseen evil at an alarming rate. You play through the game learning who you can trust and what abilities you possess but you have to learn quickly because the mysterious evil that seems to be taking over the city is growing more powerful.

Ouch I thought this game would be a candidate for G.O.T.Y I guess not

White-Sharingan3771d ago

Even if its the 360/PS3 version; its not GOTY

everyone knows the candidates will be

Fable 2
Gears of War 2
Resistance 2
Metal Gear Solid 4
Grand Theft Auto 4

Fallout 3?
Little Big Planet?

White-Sharingan3771d ago

thats true also

but I wonder if fallout 3 will get delayed

I hope LBP's creativity and fun overshadows the fact that it doesnt have a storyline per say

Unless it's Pro Evo 2008 (Winning Eleven) which got better review scores all around.

mepsipax3771d ago

uh the 360/PS3 version isn't so hot either so it's just an all around unsuspenseful, boring, and just plain uninteresting gimmicky gameplay that brings the game down.

Doppy3771d ago

Wow this game was one I was looking forward to.

Old Snake3771d ago

Hopefully the other version will be better. Although the whole game just looks like one big tech demo. Gameplay doesn't look fun at all.

ChickeyCantor3771d ago

Yes lets pass our judgement by reading ONE review, lets.

Doppy3771d ago

Actually this is the third review. First one gave it like a 5/10, second 73/100, and this one.
