This game is very good, while there are some graphical glitches and most of the scenes are in the dark (so you should play it in the dark if you dare!), this game plays like a tv show where if you get past a chapter, it will automatically save to your memory card so that if you fall or die or suicide by running into flames,it does not work, already tried for fun, this is fun, addictive, and truly scary at times!!!!! Always play ALONE IN THE DARK IN THE DARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!- !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!- !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I picked up my copy of this game just this week. I got it a little earlier than some may have had to wait. I also have it in my Game Q, just switch it for another game once I get it. I was anticipating for the game to play with the feel of around the mixture of Darkness, meets Condemned, with the intensity of Silent Hill. I’m glad that the game wasn’t a spin off of huge successful titles such as those listed.

The story is relatively short, but not long either. Moderately long, which was a nice change up to the previous version I’ve played on other consoles. It’s a strategic shooter game, involving different puzzles to solve throughout the story. Graphics engine is incredibly articulate & smooth in texture. That’s not enough to say, when any of those who haven’t played it as of yet, definitely watch the loads in between. I have a special edition, so I don’t know for sure if it will be the same mini movie sequences, still be patience & watch them in between movie clips.

One of the issues I came across, was that the response to the controls. It’s smooth & then suddenly shaky, making it difficult to control your character. I’ve never had any issues with my 360, I know this much. The problem may lay with the programming in itself. Same similar issue I’ve had with both God of War & God of War II for PS2. Otherwise, that’s my main concern with the game. Enjoy readers!
