About

Alone in the Dark is a survival horror game developed by Eden Games and Hydravision Entertainment. It is the fifth installment in the series.

Plot

The paranormal activity investigator named Edward is escorted to the roof to be executed, but Edward's guard gets killed by an unknown force, and he escapes. The protagonist has amnesia and has no idea about what is going on. He roams through New York to find answers while it is invaded by a demonic force.

Gameplay

This installment's gameplay drastically differs from the previous games of the series. The whole game is divided into episodes with the player deciding which one of them to play. At the beginning of each episode, the main events of all previous ones are told to the player.

In Alone In The Dark, the players are free to choose from both first-person and third-person camera at any point during gameplay. The environment of the game plays a big part in the gameplay as the player can pick up any object and use it as a melee weapon. Such objects can also be used to break doors or get unreachable items.

The game also features a realistic fire model, so some items can be lit up in the fire. A crafting system is also present in the game. For example, the medical spray can be used to treat wounds, but if combined with a lighter, it becomes a flamethrower.

        Control is perfect for the A * * * *! You have the feeling you go in the Mud, totally tough and then jerky again. Thought my Mill would be too bad but even on low settings it's all to hum! So bought the game via a bundel is half as wild ... I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!

        Unfortunately, I have to give the Game a negative Review as the Controls seem to come from Hell! I played it on the Wii at the Time and have to say, At that time I find the Wii control unpleasant, but with the PC control it is unplayable! My 360 controller was then displayed in the menu and that's when I was hoping! Unfortunately, despite the Display, it doesn't work ... But! Mood and especially the Musical underpainting is the Hammer!

        A few Years ago on the Xbox360 I thought the Game was really good, and now wanted to play it again on the PC. Unfortunately, the Developers were again too incompetent in terms of porting Console to PC. If you have too much Money in your Pocket and is considering accessing this Version, let's say: Fingers off. Give me the 9.99 instead and I'll come over, dress up as a zombie ghost and offer you a better Show than this Game will ever offer you (on PC).

        I recommend the game just for the end that is breathtaking! * Serious irony * the game is average overall, because the gameplay leaves to be desired... Part of the game will consist of closing breaches in the Park and my God it's long. Otherwise the beginning puts us well in the mood, many ideas that are interesting in the gameplay with combinations, care etc... The music is excellent limit I understand why he had given the album soundtrack in the collector, the figurine is not phew in the details but does not include strabismus! To take when it is in Promo 9.99 euros is expensive to get pissed for 8 hours, a very short game!

        Unfortunately, I was tempted to Buy by the very positive Review of this Game on gamestar.com.au. That was a Mistake. The Game crashes when I go into the video options, and in the Game itself I don't have a Sound (only in the Menu). A Search on the Web has shown that the Game does not appear to cope with Graphics Cards that have more than 1 or 2 GB of VRAM. Congratulations! Some Players seem to have been able to fix the sound problem by putting their WIndows sound settings on "Stereo"--which Devil I'm going to do! My immediate Step was: Right Click on the Game in my Library and "Delete local Data ...." I don't have Time for such a Crap. Only good that I had bought the Game as a Special Offer.
