Before reading this, I would like all readers to know that I have been an active gamer for many years. I rarely am critical on games and I have never felt challenged until this game to maintain liking and enjoying the game.
I honestly could not take this game...I played it for about 5-6 hours in total. It disturbed and freaked me out. Yes so thats the point of the game right? Well yes but to my experience it was beyond the 'comfort level' of being scared. You can watch a scary movie, be scared and enjoy it.
I sit down, play this game, and the only thing I can think about is when does something posative happen? When will I find an area that is not engulfed by darkness and demons? This is the first game I have ever played that has seemed to challenge me religiously. I was raised in a christian family but I have never really been a critical religious thinker. I never judge things based religious morales. That is until now.
I don't mean to blab on about rights, wrongs and evils. I am just warning anyone who professes themselves to be a christian, should stay away from this game. You want to try it, go ahead, I did. I am sending it back after having it for 2 days. I cannot enjoy it as a video game, and while I am not playing it I am fealing two urges at the same time...one being to get as far away from the game as possible, the other urge is something trying to get me to continue playing. The only solution is to stop. The game is full of pentagrams, demonic voices and images, I just could not take it.
My rating is 3...outstanding graphics, sound and controls. But it was too consumed by the negatives that I picked out from a religious perspective. I hope this review is helpful.
