From the moment Edward Carnby and Aline Cedrac set foot on Shadow Island, they are confronted by mysterious, evil creatures intent on thwarting their progress to recover 3 ancient tablets believed to hold the secret key to some incredible menacing phenomena. Danger threatens from every corner. The slightest shadow could be hiding deep secrets, or concealing worse nightmares... Can you see beyond your fear?
Edward Carnby, the supernatural detective is back! And this time it's for revenge. Carnby's best friend, Charles Fiske has been found dead off a mysterious island off the coast of Maine, Shadow Island. Carnby's investigation quickly leads him to Fred Johnson who informs him of Fiske's search for the three ancient tablets which, when placed in a specific location, will unlock an incredible and dangerous power. Johnson pleads with Carnby to pick up where Fiske left off and reopen the investigation in order to recover the tablets. Carnby accepts the mission to find and destroy the murderer of Fiske and avenge his death.
The original survival horror franchise continues with a pure blend of intense action and suspenseful adventure. Alone in the Dark immerses the player into a dark and strange atmosphere where conventional rules do not apply. The player must overcome his natural fear of the dark unknown and control Edward Carnby through a deep and highly detailed storyline. Armed with a flashlight and a pistol, Carnby must find the necessary items to survive as well as the clues which will help him escape his ultimate nightmare.

its like resident evil, but with more of a runway feeling then fighting, if you are in into good classic horror games, then this is for you
Which is actually a really good thing! First of all, you have two playable characters, so it's pretty similar to RE1 and RE2. The number of bullets you will find is also very small, so as you can guess, that's another RE-like thing. Amazing soundtrack which builds really scary atmosphere... yes, this is truly a survival horror game! So, leaving similarities aside, it's the last good Alone in the Dark game. The story itself is very dark and makes you really want to know how it all will end. Even with few annoying things, like playing in lower resolution, it doesn't throw you away for playing it. If you are fan of survival horror games then you must play it. It's really great game and trust me, it will make you jump from your sit few times...
Alone in the Dark The New Nightmare is a complete reboot of the franchise. Set in modern times, the game takes place on Shadow Island. Behind this really B-movie name lies the secret of the Morton family and its connection to the ancient civilisation of Abkani tribe. Like the original game, you have to choose between two characters : Edward Carnby, private investigator who is here to find out who has assassinated his best friend and partner Charles Fiske, or Aline Cedrac, a young anthropology professor who has come to Shadow Island in order to meet Professor Obed Morton, an expert of the Abkani tribe and, possibly, her missing father.The setting is a whole island and specifically, the Morton Mansion.Yes, this sounds a lot like the original Alone in the Dark but with different names on it.Gameplay-wise, the game took inspiration from the Resident Evil series (i.e. : There are a lot more fighting than in the original Alone in the Dark)The game is fun and looks quite beautiful for its time.The story is serviceable but the atmosphere can deliver a really immersive experience.
