A darkness has fallen over the town of Lorwich. Monstrous hordes emerge from beyond the realm of nightmares to sow chaos on the land. As one of four heroes, you must battle the minions of the old ones with the force of arms, and the power of illumination.
Inspired by the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, Atari’s Alone in the Dark series is recognized as the “Father of the Survival Horror Genre”. Alone in the Dark: Illumination explores this dark legacy in a terrifying action-horror experience.
Battle through dynamic environments filled with bloodthirsty beasts. Build your party as you rescue your companions including the Witch, Engineer and Priest, each with a unique set of special abilities and weapons.
Danger lurks in every shadow. While your friends may help, at the end of the night you are always Alone in the Dark.
Four Unique Heroes: The Hunter, the Witch, the Priest and the Engineer each offer unique gameplay experiences with distinctive weapons, skills and powers to unlock.
Play as a Team or Alone in the Dark: Play with all four characters in co-operative multiplayer mode, build smaller teams for greater challenge, or face the darkness alone.
Diverse Environments: Four campaigns with multiple levels take players through the blasted landscape of Lorwich, and deep below to unearth the mysteries of this forsaken township.
Eldritch Horror: Inspired by the writing of H.P. Lovecraft, beings from beyond madness, including Roof Walkers, Shapes and Spawns will haunt your nightmares.
Dynamic Environments: Interact with dynamic environmental puzzles to change the structure of the map and advance your quest.
Harness the Power of Illumination: Light up maps to create safe zones, and damage your foes.

Oh boy, this game is just absolutely terrible. First of all, the game feels like its a late Alpha stage game that's not gotten any of the core features implemented. If you're expecting cheesy voice acting, then you're gonna be very disappointed as there's NO voice acting whatsoever here at all, making the game feel even cheaper then the budget games we've gotten over the years, even those games could afford voice acting no matter how terrible it was. The AI is very stupid, they'll just keep walking towards you AND those that shoot at you will actually cheat as they can shoot through walls. And if you're also expecting there to be co-op AI if you play by yourself, there's none and you will BARELY be able to complete the levels, I personally couldn't bear playing past the first level as it left a very VERY bad taste in my mouth. I'm usually very forgiving when it comes to games, but this is just inexcusable. Do yourself a favor and get the older Alone in the Dark games, they're much better then this horrific living pile of Eldritch garbage.
Illumination is the lastest entry in the Alone in the Dark franchise and it's a spin-off. More precisesly, it's a multiplayer Third Person Shooter. It's the type of survival horror game where you and your teammates go all guns blasing through several maps, killing every strange creature the game throws at you. It's not a bad game per se, but it lacks originality. Why would you play this game instead of the great Left 4 Dead? Well, at least the game uses the Cthulhu Mythos for its bestiary and you have to lure monsters into the light in order to make them vulnerable (Otherwise they won't die!). But that's not much at all.
