"Play it with the lights off..."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A dark atmospheric game which provided some intense chase/escape scenes. Provided me with about 8.5 hours of pure gameplay the first time round (not including reloads etc). On the PC version you have to change your system date format around from Day/Month/Year to Month/Day/Year or you may not be able to save your game. There's some information on the net about it if you need more details… Bought this on sale for $35 and worth it!

"Absolutely Brilliant!!"
5 stars"

I've only played some of this game, and I thought it was great! Definitely not a FPS game, and never has claimed to be so.

The fact that you are only able to save in certain places is not unusual, and adds an extra difficulty to the game, as well as (I find) a sense of accomplishment when you get to a save point.

This game is meant to be scary and be true to Lovecraft's sto­ries – which as a huge fan of his work I believe it does. It's definitely not for your typical ‘shoot-em-up’ game fan, but more for a gamer who wants to use their brain.

Description

Jack Walters was a highly revered police detective before his encounter with the Mythos changed his life. After his first encounter with the Mythos he was diagnosed with severe amnesia and schizophrenia and was committed to an asylum. Several years later his faculties returned and he was discharged. Fuelled by a burning desire to discover more about the dark secrets of the universe and the mysteries of his own past, he set himself up as a private detective in which he only took cases with a Mythos connection. Desperate for answers he takes a new case involving stories of strange creatures , unholy rituals, unexplained prosperity, and disappearances of several people from a town called Innsmouth.
