Creepy atmosphere and solid gameplayrsencarn | April 20, 2014 | See all rsencarn's reviews »
Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth brings you into the world of H.P. Lovecraft's novella "The Shadow Over Innsmouth". It is a solid FPS/Horror hybrid that relies on atmosphere, jump scares, and a consistent feeling of dread to conjure a gaming experience well worth the price. The graphical presentation is definitely dated but the mechanics are solid and provide for a challenging foray against the denizens of the deep.
I recommend the game for its environment, lore, and consistent creepiness. In an age of regenerating health and reckless bullet-time battles, Call of Cthulhu offers a refreshing glimpse back into a time when story and atmosphere were the primary to play.
In summation: Sequel when?
Incredibly immersive!alyousha35 | April 19, 2014 | See all alyousha35's reviews »
An incredibly immersive game, very well paced. It feels exactly like how you'd expect a game based on Lovecraft to work: slow-paced and terrifying. Unfortunately, it's not perfect. While the story and experience are amazing, they can be very negatively affected by the bugs. A black mark on a nearly perfect game. I still highly recommend it for the experience, regardless of any technical flaws.

This was a great game that flew under the radar after it came out.
You take on the role of an investigator trying to uncover the mysteries of Innsmouth, after an incident report reaches you. You come upon this dank port town full of strange looking people and even stranger mysteries. The game itself plays like 1-player Call of Cthulhu campaign where the keeper insists on making you the most aggravated person they know.

Date in graphics but solid in game play Dark Corners is a game that lets its mechanics speak for itself. Lovecraft lore is front and center in this romp through the village of Innsmouth with background detail so crafted that you swear you entered into one of Lovecraft's novellas.
The only downside I would say is how the game goes from a game about surviving and mystery solving to a shooter near the final act, but the shear amount of care they went to making this a quiet apt representation of Lovecrafts world is more then enough to pardon the creators for it.
If you are a Lovecraft fan you will love this game, if your curious about Lovecraft you will enjoy this game, you will be happy you did
