I can't remember being this creeped out playing a video game since Resident Evil. The lighting effects are amazing and the paranormal flashes of what's to come compliment everything so perfectly. The crime scene investigation aspect is not really a huge part of the game but it really helps break up the monotony. Gun play is pretty cool too. The guns you acquire don't always give you an upper hand. You don't stock up on ammunition but you can reload within the environment. You also don't collect weapons. It's all about finding weapons within your environment and really adds to the desperation of the character. I would defiantly recommend this game.

I would recommend this game to those who like real horror games. This game has a decent plot, though it would be a good idea to play the first one on the PC or 360. As far as graphics are concerned, they are great. This game might seem a little dark, but it's actually much much better than Silent Hill. Melee and gun fights are awesome, and there is always an element of surprise. I highly recommend to play this game in the dark.
The gameplay may seem a little tough. Some enemies always hit you first before you hit them. Also, you cannot carry any additional ammo which can be a little annoying, cuz sometimes I had to go back to pick up guns that I left behind.
Anyways, I'm a big fan of horror games and this one is one of the best. If you liked Dead Space, there is a high chance that you would like this one.
