TeamXbox Review: Alone in the Dark

Reviewed by Tom 'Tomelet' Price, he writes:

Not to be overly reductive, but every video game can be reduced to two basic elements: presentation and gameplay. Presentation includes everything from graphics and sound down to the interface and save system. Gameplay is just that – the way the game plays. Reducing Alone in the Dark down to these two elements makes it easier to define the game. Presentation-wise it's not bad, with some good music, a story that was given careful attention and an overall atmosphere befitting a survival horror game. But the gameplay? Oh boy.

Gameplay - 2.0

Graphics - 6.0

Audio - 6.2

Innovation - 5.0
