It's a pretty generic horror game, but that isn't a bad thing. However there are many bad things about this game. I even made you a list!
-The tutorial level is unbelievably laggy compared to the rest of the game, maybe because the entire level loaded at once.
-Walk in the dark, pick up a thing, rinse and repeat. We're getting GOTY with these revolutionary mechanics.
-Jump scares are substituted for things that could actually be scary, you know, like a story.
-When the level loads a different area, there is no loading screen, the game cuts to black and fades back. It feels jagged.
-Some parts are just way too dark. Even with the gamma turned up, you won't be able to discern different symbols in front of you, symbols which will determine if you live or become a giant shishkabob.
But don't add this to your cart and delete it from your cart yet! This game has some redeeming factors!
-The setting is great, really. The maps aren't the most creative, but they serve their purpose well when they aren't dark.
-The sound is fun. It will make you feel as if there's someone around you or even BEHIND YOU RIGHT NOW! AAAHH!!
-Because it's a standard horror game, they don't waste time introducing quirky mechanics you'll use once and then never again. It takes 5 minutes for hem to teach you what you need to know and you're off.
-The first "monster" you come across (and the only one I've seen so far) has a pretty basic design, but still manages to be freaky after seeing it 500 times.
I'd only recommend this game to people who like horror games and only if they want something a little lighter. The story won't give you existential depression, the monsters won't give you nightmares, you won't have to sleep between mommy and daddy when you finish Chapter 1, it's a very relaxed horror game.
