About what you should expect
on 15 October 2001
OK. Nice packaging and full motion video, as well as the acceptable in game graphics makes this a very well presented horror RPG. As usual for this genre the number of 3D monsters is limited as is the type of challange and the environment gets a bit 'samey', but some variation is included thanks to bases blowing up.
The actual story line is simple, and none of the puzzles is exactly challenging (one was solved by pulling drawers out randomly). However, the lack of ammo and the generic dearth of healing keeps you nervous enough.
So, good enough and worth borrowing if a friend has it, and certainly more than a 'filler' if your waiting for a specific game, But quite a short game (I've just finished it after 3 weeks of fairly inconstant play) which I suppose is OK if you are the sort that likes to replay the game for better rankings.
I actually quite like it and have started playing it again. I know I can get a much better rank, and I reckon I can kill the giant spider in less than 4 shots
