Good game

This is a pretty good, tension filled, horror shooter which lives up to the conventions of the genre and each minute of playing this game will be filled with scary, jumpy experiences. The graphics in the game are nothing special but they serve their purpose of making the game much more immersive and therefore scary. The sound design is also a stellar part of the game and the various effects in the game help to create an even more immersive atmosphere. The gunplay is well handled in the game and each of the many weapons feel realistic. This game is a very good game for fans of the horror genre and I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys games such as the FEAR series

A tense classic

Back when survivor horror actually meant survivor horror. When you start the game; you don't recall anything. You have barely anything for weapons and you know something is very wrong. You then search the castle for your family members.

The gameplay is actually pretty good. The castle is generated new every time you start a new game. The main objective remains the same. The game doesn't let you save nor there is an auto save. You have limited weapons, ammo and health. Use them wisely.

The story is interesting. Don't expect much though; this game is basically a roguelike in a survivor horror setting.

The sound is what makes the game tense. The music keeps the hairs on the back of your neck tingling and the sound makes you on edge. The voice acting is terrible though.

The game has absolutely no graphic settings. You can't change the resolution or anything. You have to deal with the low resolution the game defaults to. The game looked old when released; especially when you compare to Half-Life 2 which was only 1 year after this game came out.

The game is fun if you can get around the fact that the graphics are terrible to look at.
