Game description

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.


Key Features:

  • Action oriented gameplay that features intense "edge of your seat" thrills and twists

  • Immersive free-roaming, interactive environments intricately based on NYC's Central Park

  • Episodic Structure: 30 to 40 minute episodes grip you in a constant, high level of intensity

  • Story written by Lorenzo Carcaterra (NY Times Bestselling author of "Sleepers" and "Apaches")

  • Wide range weapons to destroy both enemy agents and eventually the source of the evil itself.

  • Vehicles not only offer a means of transportation, but become actual game mechanics which are part of puzzles and solutions to in game challenges.

  • Eden's new TWILIGHT engine creates a lavishly detailed game world with highly realistic effects such as moisture, reflections and advanced cinematography.

Better Than Expected

While not a great game, and certainly nowhere near as good as Resident Evil, Alone in the Dark was very fun. I liked the puzzles, the open world gameplay and exploration, and the story was pretty decent. The game though just screamed average in every way. The controls were mostly solid. It had moments of scariness here and there, and the combat was pretty fun. The driving was probably the worst part of the game as the controls were horrible and with the exception of the endgame open world exploration, the driving segments were mostly scripted and annoying. Overall I never hated this game at any point and I always looked forward to playing it again. When it was over though, I never came back to play it again, so take that as you will. Definitely a fun game while it lasts and recommended.

Bad port.

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.

It wasn't good for me

The idea is indeed cool, the soundtrack is catchy with those bulgarian choirs (they're not kids, it's a traditional bulgarian choir). The sound is great, and so are the graphics (when I saw the fire I was quite amazed, it's very realistic). Downsides? Well, the gameplay is not too solid. It's actually glitchy sometimes, the kind of glitches that push you to restart from the latest checkpoint because you can't go on after a while figuring what happened. It's frustrating and too tricky sometimes too. The story is not great, but not horrible either. Could be a good experience though, it's not a bad game. It's just not good enough for my taste.

Better of staying in the dark

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.
