Absolute garbage.

I'm a completionist, and only spent 20 minutes playing this rubbish before I made a special trip to the Post Office to send it back. I seriously contemplated burning it; I still feel it would have done GameFly customers a great service.

The controls were obviously designed by a drunken epileptic. Let's talk about these 'controls':

Walking: Right. Either keep one foot out in front, or just hold up your right arm. Guess which is easier.

Running: Not happening.

Crouching: Sure, but you have to hold out your hand to 'interact' for some stupid reason.

Fighting: Good luck. You WILL take damage; even with perfect timing, it's wonky at best.

Turning: Turn normally, and you will quickly find yourself facing backward; turn just a tiny bit, however, and the controls are unresponsive.

If they fixed the controls...yeah, I still wouldn't play it. I shall forever lament the loss of 20 minutes of my life, wasted in this garbage entitled Rise of Nightmares.

The only nightmare here is the game itself. If I could rate it lower, I would.
