The game that started the popular survival horror genre returns better than ever! Players control Edward Carnby, the main character from the original Alone in the Dark, on a thrilling journey through a dark and terrifying re-creation of New York's Central Park where Carnby must discover the truth behind a dark conspiracy.
With inspiration from the presentation style of popular action TV dramas, Alone in the Dark will be split into a number of distinct episodes. With approximately 30-40 minutes of gameplay comprising each episode, the structure of Alone in the Dark pulls you into world that delivers a fiercely gripping and terrifying experience. Each time the player launches a saved game, the episode will begin with a video summary of the previous episode to quickly re-immerse the player in the story and removing the need to remember where they were or what they were doing. Every episode will close with a nail-biting cliff-hanger ending to rattle players' nerves, and if the player is leaving the game a video teaser of the next episode will play to leave them wanting more.
Alone in the Dark will provide a complete next-generation, action packed experience within a highly detailed, free roaming environment, featuring a mixture of real-time physics and full environmental interaction. The game will mark a new beginning for the Alone in the Dark series.

While Alone in the Dark (2008) is not so bad game, the port is just terrible. I mean, controls are really bad and annoying - you will have really hard time playing it and on some moments, like driving, will "drive" you mad. Options menu is also bugged, so it WILL crash your game, trust me. it's really bad. Want to play it with your controller, not keyboard+mouse? Too bad, you won't be able to. You will probably also have a trouble putting a game in higher resolution - many people have a trouble with that, since their game simply crash... That's really too bad, since like I said, it's not a bad game. Sure, it's much worse than original Alone in the Dark games, but for an action game it's rather cool. Too bad that devs and/or publisher didn't care about releasing a polished game - it could sell better, have better opinions and much more. Too bad, since Alone in the Dark is a franchise which I really like... Get it at your own risk.
Alone in the Dark tried to resurrect the game franchise that started the survival horror genre. But it failed miserably, only creating a shambling corpse of a game that you want to put out of its misery. Alone in the Dark fails at horror. It is more frustrating than terrifying. The controls don’t feel responsive, and that’s when you get used how awkward they are. The story is laughable, the characters bland, and the voices and line delivery are so bad they are probably the scariest part of the game due to how bad they are. Alone in the Dark tries to do some things differently, like making fire an essential element in the game, necessary for everything from exploration to combat, and the menu system is also fairly novel. However, despite all of these ideas, nothing is implemented properly and usually it only makes your experience worse. Alone in the Dark plays and feels like it was made by people who either have no idea what made the original games good or have no respect for them. Stay away from this one.
This game is really great. I first played it on Wii and it was a bit wonky so I wasn't sure about giving it a go on PC, but it completely blew me away(however, not graphically). The environments are terrifying, and the tension builds in a masterful way. The weapons you can use are creative (read: flamethrowers you made as a kid), and add a nice survival feel to the game as you tend to be under prepared for the trials and tribulations you have to face. The game doesn't look horrible, though it's also not overwhelmingly beautiful. Unlike most people I haven't noticed many glitches or FPS drops in the time that I have spent with the game (though I haven't completed it). There have been a few, but it's definitely not an Arkham Knight situation.Overall I really think this is a game worth checking out, especially at sale prices (it's just so cheap, why wouldn't you find out if you like it for yourself).
Alone in the Dark is the fifth and (sadly) last game in the french franchise of Survival Horror. Set in modern New York City, its story completely retconned The New Nightmare and is a direct sequel to Alone in the Dar 1-3. You're Edward Carnby, a private investigator who was often confronting paranormal phenomena. This time, you must explore Central Park and find the secrets behind a mysterious artefact while the whole city seems to be eager to kill you. Possessed people, strange fractures in the walls and dangerous creatures... Everything is trying to kill you.Alone in the Dark is flawed, really flawed. The game doesn't look good at all. There are framerate issues and glitches. The story is hardly interesting.However, it's probably the most ambitious Survival Horror game of its generation.The inventory system (Got a lighter and a spray? Use them to create your little flamethrower), the way you can uses your environment to solve puzzles and progress realistically (The door is closed? Why not use this fireaxe or this heavy fire extinguisher to break through?)... Each aspect of the gameplay is trying to create a new breed of survival horror and adventure games in general.Finally, the soundtrack is amazing, thanks to french composer Olivier Deriviere and the band Mystery of Bulgarian Voices.It's a flawed game but really interesting to play. Too bad people didn't like it.
