Awful, and a insult to the series
27 November 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

With the end of 2008 nearing, this is definitely the worst game that has been released this year. Not only is it not scary at all (which defeats the purpose of naming the game Alone in the Dark in the first place), it has some of the most frustrating controls in video-game history. On top of that, all the enemy's in the game can ONLY be killed with fire. You can hit a enemy with a axe or anything not-flameable and it will not kill them, so my immediate first question is why have those weapons in the first place then? Sure, you can knock them out for a few seconds, but when you play a game and hit a enemy at point-blank with a axe, you expect it to die and nothing else.

About the controls. It really takes time to fully explain the lack of good controls in this game. When you switch to first-person, every time you perform a action it switches you back to third-person. The melee-weapons you can swing around by moving the right-thumbstick on Xbox 360, but this feels so stiff it really makes you wish you could just simply kill the enemy's with a well-placed bullet in the head like in GOOD games. It just feels sometimes like the game is constantly bothering the player with such frustration. On a more silly note, the game actually rewards you with a 'blackout'-achievement for completing a level without skipping it with the included DVD-like menu.

Lets get to the voice-acting. Well, if you thought the shittyness would end here, you are wrong. The voice-cast are constantly sounding like they are really desperate to sound tough with the overuse of the word 'fuck' in the cut-scenes. It makes you feel like watching a really crappy Hollywood B-flick with no interest for descent script-writing at all. Especially Carnby just sounds like a douchebag, but overall the voice-acting really makes you wonder sometimes what point the characters are trying to make with all the excessive cursing. The music in this game on the other hand sounds atmospheric.

The horror-elements are completely none-existent. The entire game relies on predictable scripted and boring action-sequences, so the entire scare-factor is thrown out of the window in this game, unless zombies with scars and cracks in floors and walls scare you. If you are a fan of the Alone in the Dark series and hated the movie by Uwe Boll for obvious reasons, I friendly suggest you to stay clear of this horrible game. This hyped modern installment of Alone in the Dark has a lot of nice potential ideas, but uninteresting characters, laughable dialogs and broken controls make for the worst game of 2008.
