IGN Reviews Alone in the Dark: Inferno

"There's no hiding the fact that Eden Games' Alone in the Dark, which hit several consoles earlier this year, was not terribly well-received. My colleague, Ryan Geddes, had some serious qualms with the 360 version of the game, including its poor controls, unintuitive combat mechanics and a less-than-ideal story. His review was not the only one that reacted in this manner, and the folks at Eden took the criticisms very seriously when they continued their work on the PS3 version. Now that Alone in the Dark: Inferno is available at retail, some gamers might be curious as to how the latest version turned out. I can say with complete confidence that Inferno is a tremendous improvement over its predecessors in terms of gameplay and structure, though it still bears some of the same problems that plagued the other versions. But at the very least, what was once an awful game riddled with issues is now a reasonably entertaining effort that better highlights some of the great ideas that Eden attempted to implement into the project."

The story is too old to be commented.

Personally I thought this game was awesome. Instead of just walking up to any door and pressing a button to open it, you sometimes have to find another way to get it open, whether it's shooting the lock with your pistol, strapping a bottle of flammable liquid to it and shooting it, or using a fire extinguisher to bust the door down, this is a game where you can't just run and gun your way through it. You have to give it some thought.

The demo was average, overall not that good for a game, even with trophys.
