An excellent game!
5 November 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I have been playing video games for more than 25 years, and I have seen a lot of them. One thing that I have learned is that you may like games for different things, and not always the same. Some have great stories, some awesome graphics, some cool effects, some terrific soundtracks, etc. Another thing that I have learned is that a game should be evaluated by its own characteristics and not against other games characteristics. Sanitarium is an awesome game, an excellent game. By the time it was released, the game looked kind of old fashion, however the environment was perfectly set, with wonderful details and amazing backgrounds. At the beginning, it seems like a cliché. A guy losing his memory and trying to get it back... Please! It's been used for ages! However, the story develops in a way that this cliché turns into a deeper and disturbing story just perfect to keep the player going on trying to find out what happens. Some of the scenes seem to have been taken out of a bad dream, which is a perfect setting for this game. The player actually adapts to this weird dreams or hallucinations accordingly, which is also a neat detail. The story itself is very interesting, with ideas maybe borrowed from different sources, but nicely adapted to give them a different meaning. The game is a mix of suspense and terror, with some unique aspects making it a nice to play game. It hooks you and pulls you to keep on playing until the end. This is one of the games once you play you can not forget. I have not after more than 10 years...
