"ONE THE BEST HORROR GAMES FOR THE PS3"
5 stars"

Its one of the best horror games on the PS3. You start of not knowing anything that has happen for the past. You r in this building the is burning and falling apart. And the zombies in the game are great they come out of nowhere and you have to burn them to kill them. When you come back to the game it show you what has happened like a TV series. I recommend this game to anyone that loves horror games. It is easy to pick up and play. 5 out of 5 from me.

"Decent horror/survival game "
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game has a great atmosphere about it. Everywhere you go, it feels spooky and creepy. Unlike other games where you are surrounded by enemies at almost all times, this game you aren't. So you can be all alone in the middle of the park with that erriry music in the background. This game really knows how to build the suspense.

As far as gameplay goes though, its not that different from other games. You run around, pick things up, shoot bad guys, solve puzzles (more on that in a minute), and try and stay alive. Main issue I found was the camera angles were a bit iffy. Moving from third person to static views was annoying. Fortunately you can always switch to first person, which was fine. There is a big point of how you have to put together things you find on the ground into weapons, the novelty however wears off soon enough. In the end you'll just be throwing bottles of flammable liquid at everyone and shooting everyone else.

Now perhaps the best/worst part of the game. The puzzles, they are bloody everywhere. I mean sure you can have a few here and there, but this game goes crazy with them. Most aren't that difficult but the rate at which they hit you with them can get annoying.

Overall its an OK game, its a little short, and whilst you might feel like you've done this all before, its still a good little time waster. Oh and spooky too. ^_^

"Interestingly Unique Game !"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Alone in the dark Inferno gives you refreshingly unique gaming experience. It is a survival horror with a twist. For the price on the mighty ape this is deal you do not want to miss out on. It is a steal :)

Good story, interactive game play, real life physics & virtually unlimited weapon choices (not only guns), amazingly real looking fire ( which used wisely, kills most of the monsters instantly if not all ). This is definitely not for everyone, and its a intense action adventure, but its not a shooter. but if you are like me who enjoys best games in various genre then this game is a treat.
I would give this game overall rating of 8.5 !!!

"Worth a try"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

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.

Description

Alone in the Dark: Inferno stays true to the storyline of the previous versions in which gamers take on the role of paranormal investigator Edward Carnby and over the course of one apocalyptic night must fight to survive and uncover the earth-shattering secret behind New York's Central Park. However, the new edition will fully complement the intense storytelling and unprecedented environmental interactions with an array of improved gameplay elements that will give gamers the ultimate Alone in the Dark experience.

Gameplay elements including camera, inventory system, and hero control have all been reworked for maximum immersion and fun. In addition, Alone in the Dark: Inferno will include an all-new action sequence revealing a previously unseen enemy of epic proportions.

The game promises to raise the temperature with improvements including:

  • Full 360 degree camera control: enhanced camera controls allows complete freedom of the camera and better handling of third person movement for even more immersive gameplay enabling players to view the fire and mass destruction they are causing in all of its glory.
  • Fine-tuned controls: quicker and smoother reactivity of the hero's movements in third person view increases the pace of the game and makes for faster, reflexive gameplay during tense fighting scenarios;
  • Inventory system more accessible: more logical jacket inventory system with the ability to scroll rapidly through the inventory with the D-pad or analog stick to combine objects. In addition, gameplay is paused when accessing the inventory system to allow maximum creativity in combining items to create unique flammable weapons;
  • More tips: additional on-screen tips will help players quickly adapt to controls and easily understand how to overcome tricky situations;
  • Spectral Vision tuning: a tutorial earlier in the storyline explains the need to burn roots in order to gain spectral vision (a power that grants you the ability to see the unseen) and difficulty tuning means less spectral vision is required to reach the end of the game;
  • Improved car dynamics and handling: driving has been tuned with increased suspension and reduced drifting giving overall better handling to make driving a fun walk in the park every time;
  • 59th Street level tuning: one of the game's most exciting sequences just got better. 59th Street has been tweaked for a more satisfying race against the fissure with difficulty tuning, an added checkpoint at Columbus Circle and clear voice directions given by Sarah;
  • Brand new thrilling action sequence: an exclusive new sequence has been added in Episode 6 for even more excitement and variety of gameplay in the episode.
