"Too Easy!"
2 stars"

When i first saw the “Alone in the Dark” trailer i was quite excited, but when i bought the game and almost literally clocked in within 2 seconds i was very disappointed. Even if you up the settings in difficulty you will fly through this game absolutely no problem at all. It has pretty average graphics and just no story-line pretty much at all. 2/5

"Better on console"
3 stars"

This game is great in concept, i was loaned the PC version by a friend, but the execution is poor, on PC trying to use the keyboard and mouse to control the game is very awkward, its very easy to move the mouse just a little too much, which in some instances can prove a fatal mistake. Also aiming weapons, be they melee weapons or ranged weapons is very awkward. If you already have a gamepad for your PC, then you shouldn't have any problem, but if not, i would recommend buying it for console rather than either suffering the poor control layout, or having to buy a gamepad specifically for this game.

"Not as good as first thought"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I played the original games and I expected a lot more from this version. Game play seems exactly the same besides a few updates on what you can do as the character. Graphics aren't bad but not the greatest either. While I am use to playing games with a keyboard and mouse, the game play seems to be based more for the console which does cause havoc trying to use all the keys. If I get a console controller for the PC this game might be better but still not the greatest (on PC)

Description

Central Park is hiding a secret. Built as a safe haven not only for the people of New York, but for something else entirely, generations of guardians have long protected the truth, preserving the vast parkland while the most expensive city in the world reached skyward on its fringes. Now the truth can no longer be contained, and paranormal investigator Edward Carnby finds himself inexplicably cast into the eye of the storm as over the course of one apocalyptic night he must uncover the earth-shattering secret behind Central Park. New York will never be the same again.

Inspired by the gripping style of contemporary TV dramas, the game delivers a new degree of narrative intensity, presented as a complete season format of episodes each containing action, twists and cliff-hangers. Bursting with innovative technology, including unprecedented environmental interaction, revolutionary physics, advanced artificial intelligence, stunning visuals, and uniquely immersive user interface, Alone in the Dark breaks gaming clichés to fulfil the next-gen promise and deliver a new kind of entertainment experience.

Features:
  • Central Park: one of the world’s most iconic and best loved urban landmarks, Central Park has been accurately reproduced using satellite data and thousands of photographs;
  • Captivating story: The story reveals the conspiracy behind Central Park and challenges beliefs on the afterlife, based on ideas and theories drawn from real-world spiritual philosophies;
  • Narrative Intensity: taking cues from blockbuster TV dramas, the story is told in a TV season-style narrative structure to deliver the maximum intensity throughout, keeping the player hooked;
  • Real world rules: revolutionary technology brings a new level of environmental interaction to the gameplay where anything you could do in real life, you can do in the game;
  • Immersion: the player is plunged into the heart of the action in real-time with full movement control, in-game inventory system, on-body damage and healing system, and physiological effects;
  • Photographic Rendering: Eden’s proprietary Twilight technology and rendering engine create a lavishly detailed game world with highly realistic and advanced cinematographic effects including depth of field, camera focus, numerous light sources, moisture, reflections and High Dynamic Range effects.
