5.0 out of 5 stars Great CE
Great collector's edition for a really great price. The game could have been better, it's not bad, but it has it's own problems.

This review is from: Alone in the Dark 5 Limited Edition Box Set (Wii) (Video Game)
I only bought this for the extras,I already have it on 360 and PS2,a few words about the extras,It's all pretty nice,the figure has a competent paintjob on it,the artbook is nice but there's no text in it and the CD is barely 20 minutes long,I've not watched the DVD yet and as for the game,problematic it may be but it's better than the PS2 version,it's widescreen and aiming is via the Wiimote and is not like the PS2's uninverted control,I've not got to the driving yet but it has similar controls to CoD3,so it should be awful then...yes the driving was/is awful,the first bit isn't so bad but the forklift and subsequent driving sections are terrible,it took me a dozen attempts to do the forklift and I've not done the next one (I can't even hotwire the car fast enough),I've recently watched the DVD and it's barely 50 minutes long and there's only about two minutes dedicated to the Wii,the rest is 360,It's hard not to watch it with a sense of irony as pretty much nothing they declared actually happened,sure it may work in their tech demos but as a coherent game,no.
There's not much to the DVD,mostly looped praise for their own game and the artbook is replicated entirely on the DVD!,the producer says it'll be the 'first game you can finish',you could if the controls etc. weren't so awful and I've finished many games 'normally' without skipping bits,GoW 1+2,Medal of Honor etc.
I like the game,in essence,but it's so badly executed it's annoying.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of this and a little bit of that., 2 Mar 2011

This review is from: Alone in the Dark 5 Limited Edition Box Set (Wii) (Video Game)
I guess I purchased this box set because I like collecting limited edition stuff, BUT, I decided to give the game a serious go since people were bashing it left and right. I'll be fair...it's not good, but it's not excruciatingly bad either. Atari are gaming industry veterans and most of their stuff has been good. This is just one of the exceptions so let the guys catch a break. I felt that this game had a lot of potential but they just didn't know what to do with it. However, I must say that it's not SO awful that you can't stand playing it at all. If you're a hard-core gamer, maybe it is painful for you. But if you're a casual gamer like me, it's playable. To sum it up, I wouldn't spend too much money on it but I wouldn't expect to get it for a few pennies either.

This review is from: Alone in the Dark 5 Limited Edition Box Set (Wii) (Video Game)
In this box set you get, the game and a few extras like a figurine and book and what not.

The extras are good the game is terrible.

Avoid if you can. Read the reviews on the game and you'll see why!
