Atari NYC Media Day: Destructoid Preview Alone in the Dark on the PS3

Samit Sarkar writes: "I was really looking forward to Alone in the Dark -- so much so, that I put it at number eight on my list of the top 10 PS3 games I was anticipating the most this year. I say "was" -- as in, past tense -- because, of course, the reviews of the 360 version were overwhelmingly negative. As a PS3 owner, I retained a small sliver of hope, praying that developer Eden Games would fix the myriad problems with the 360 version."

they actually made quite a lot of improvements over there for the PS3 version! with trophies, I think this game will do pretty good on PS3 and I might give it a try if the reviews are good or at least better than the one on 360!

Alone in the Dark's 2024 remake is compelling but rough around the edges

The original Alone in the Dark - hailing all the way back from 1992 - is re-imagined with Unreal Engine 4.

series S performance mode, 800x450p - 1600-900p

so NEVER hits 1080, and goes as low as a ps2.

this consoles dead to me

We didn't like it much either. A missed opportunity.

I will be the 1st to say that a great game
but this game not good needed better development - not sure if the dev's were rush or just needed direction ?
either way no biggies as there has not been a good alone in the dark in many many many years.

@ROCKY28 I loved The New Nightmare, that was 25 years ago. But I still wanted this to be good.

ROCKY2811d ago

I wanted it to be good as well 👍

Is anyone surprised? It's looked bad the entire time and only apologists say nice things about it.

Some of the environments had a chilling atmosphere. But that evaporates when anything happens.
