A Bright Moment from the Darkness,
This review is from: Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube) (Video Game)
They don't make `em like this anymore, in fact, they only did this once. This unfolds like a book for an experience unlike any other game. The control system's a little ropy but that doesn't matter because it's all about the centuries-spanning story. The emphasis is less on physical fighting and more on the magic system which has an interesting mix-and-match mechanic. The visuals hold up pretty well for a decade-old game too. The sanity meter's a nice gimic while it lasts but you'll soon get the ability to keep yourself out of the Land of the Lunes. Having characters from different times and different places keeps things fresh with matching weapons to go with it. It's also good to return to some of these places centuries after, seeing the changes the evil has wrought. If you can find this, snap it up.
