Reaching new heights in horror gaming
on 14 October 2010
This game really does what it says on the tin. Its scares and it scares good.
Its rare in horror games these days to feel scared and be made jump out of your skin. This game has a great ability to get you when you least expect it.
The story is little hard to follow at first and a lot of the plot revolves around Tibetan history & Buddhist rituals that may confuse. The way the story is told, is through journals and the lead characters tape recording machine. Which adds to the tension and relays the feeling of loneliness. The story becomes easier to understand as the games unfolds, and draws you in making you want our character survive and win the day.
The graphics are very impressive, great views all around of deep valleys, high ridges and lonely villages all portrayed in great detail. The weather effects are done very nicely with mist rolling and blocking your vision and giving a claustrophobic impression. Snow storms rage across the screen. All in all a very impressive image is given from your humble little Wii.
Difficulty is managed very well, with nothing too hard but it does offer you with a challenge that lasts for a satisfying amount of time
The only bug bear I do have is the controls. The character moves very slowly and does feel a bit sluggish at times. This however does not take away from a very enjoyable horror quest.
If you are interested in horror games, you couldn't do too wrong by buying this game.
