The game that started it all.
10 May 2002 | by tsfreakSee all my reviews

This game started a revolution when it showed its ugly head on the gaming market,in 1993.A revolution carried on by the not so good sequel,"Alone in the dark 2" which appeared one year later and the amazing "Resident Evil" series.Although the weird 3-rd person engine and the cumbersome controls made it feel a little strange , the game was a blast.It was probably the first game that could really immerse you in a truly scary atmosphere. Taking place in a haunted mansion , it might have not seemed so original as a story at the time , when the market was flooded with that kind of stuff(maybe some of you doodz remember "The Legacy" from Microprose).The only difference about this game was that it had 3D graphics.That was enough.The rest just came along.Shooting zombies,avoiding ghosts,fighting evil and trying to escape from the house...it was super.Today,if you take a look at the horrible graphics you might just wanna scream.But hey,it was 1993!After I played the game NOTHING absolutely NOTHING felt the same.You may call me an idiot,crazy or anything else but I tell you this:A true gamer has a corner in his heart in which he/she keeps a memory of the times when he or she was trapped Alone In the Dark...
