A játékról

For some time now, Leafmore High School has been the setting for unexplained disappearances. In this survival horror game, you take control of a group of 5 American students. With your friends, you try to unravel the mysterious happenings at this unremarkable-looking school. The night will be long and survival not will not be easy...

A few years ago, strange things started occurring in the usually quiet American school of Leafmore. Some students are said to have heard awful screams, and there is talk of mysterious disappearances.
After one of their friends mysteriously disappears, a group of students decide to investigate the disturbing events. One evening after class, they stay behind and are locked inside the school, determined to discover what is going on.
Down long, dimly-lit corridors and in dark classrooms, Shannon, Kenny, Ashley, Stan and Josh will try to find out why their school has become so terrifying - and will try to stay alive.

- Discover the game that has become a classic in the survival horror game genre.
- Every student in the group has a special ability.
- All kinds of weapons can be used: baseball bats, handguns, shotguns, and much more.
- Solve puzzles.
- Play alone or with a friend in co-op mode on the same screen.
- Soundtrack composed by award-winning composer Olivier Derivière.
- Compatible with the Xbox 360 controller.

Great old school horror game that's fair, fun and has an interesting storyline. Only thing is that it's pretty short, I finished it within 3 hours but that's probably because I've played it before. Definitely a recommendation for anyone that loves Horror games like the old Resident Evil games,

Played this on the clunky Original Xbox before even thinking of looking for a PC version.
GOG no longer had rights to sell the game, and I lucked out checking Steam.

Workshop and mods would be nice for this game.
Any help it can get to boost some graphics would be nice.

Pretty dated game, but still loads of fun.
The haunting school atmosphere still lingers in my mind and sets off disturbing imagery, every time I walk by a school or even just look at one.
The music was one of the biggest highlights for me, that creepy choir that just saunters into the room.

After replaying the intro to the game, I had to take a break, it was really late (early in the morning) and I didn't realize the game still had a major creep factor. I really didn't remember the shadowy beings being THAT nerve-racking to run away from.

As Halloween gets closer, I'll be finishing this game off in time to do a movie marathon that consists of Silent Hill, House on Haunted Hill (1999) and The Faculty.

I give Obscure 8/10. It's a good survival horror/3rd person adventure. The controls take some getting used to. The atmosphere is pretty scary actually I jumped a few times when I was picking a lock and a monster came out of nowhere.

Not nearly as difficult as the original Resident Evil games. I mean you limited saves and ammo but nowhere as hardcore as RE1 or RE2.

The soundtrack is also excellent. Worth a buy if you like survival horror games or just creepy games in general.

one of my favorite series since jr high. i loved this game, it got the creepy atmosphere from silent hill, the unique horror style that not alot of game developer understand these days and an excuse for the story.
most horror games these days focus on the jumpscares and that somebody is mentally insane or they lost a kid, but this game lets you play as 5 characters, searching for they'r friend who they left to play basket ball alil longer. but when they stay in school after the bell rings out, they start noticing how bizzar the school really is, all just cause they wanted to search for they'r friend who they had no idea where was, even if he were at the school. they soon get lockd in due to the janitor's closing shift and they'r stuck in there.

the gameplay mechanic belongs back on a ps2 console and is REALLY reccomended to be playing with a controller, as you would just be using the keyboard and not the mouse. like i said, you can play as 5 diffrent characters and they all have "unique" skills. some are useless and some are good. oh, and somethign important? you character can DIE! and if he/she dies, you have to play as one of the other char from your teamparty, if you have any following you(1 at a time).
if both of them die, the story continues as the others in the meating spot gets worried. to get back your items, you need to find you previous body and loot the corpes/bag. its an unique touch that you dont see too often.

this game is alittle updated since i last playd it, i noticed they changed the intro music, and a few graphical things. but i havent got far enough to tell the other diffrents, but the co-op is new. its only local co-op and you would either need atleast 2 controllers or 1 keyboard and 1 controller... but its not recomended to play with the keyboard at all.

this game is generally old, and judging it back then, it was a gem. atleast 8/10 because ps3 was still under development.
focusing on nowadays, it would get 6/10 due to poor graphic, annoying controll system, linear path and wacky combat system. like i said, its recomended to play with a controller.. but the truth is, you cant really push high expectations on an old game, if they changed too much, it would ruin the original game itself. with that said, i can only give it a 7/10. it is a must play for silent hill and generally all original horror lovers. there are some few issues with the gameplay, but that is something you learn to play with. without any trouble.

Obscure is a game about 5 high shcool students who get themselves into a "sticky situation". They find that while trying to find ther friend Kenny, that the Principal is conducting experiments on the students!
REVIEW
The game looks alright for being made in 2004, the animations are all smooth, no lag, no issues here. The setting for the game is Leafmore High, the high school the kids attend along with some underground labs once you get halfway through the game. The environments look good, and shadows play a good part in the game, so you'll be using your flashlight a lot. The monsters are engulfed in darkness so you'll have to burn it off them with the flashlight.Be careful though, the flashlights battery can overheat. Now lets get to the good stuff... the dialouge. I'm not gonna lie, the dialouge in this game is actually o.k. It's the voice acting though that can get irritating. You can even sometimes hear a high pitched squeal whenever someones talking. The story is very important to this game. You're gonna have to look everywhere and anywhere, if you're to find out the backstory, but none of this will be hard. Each of the main charcters have their own special ability. Josh has the ability to tell you if their's something left in the room to get. Shannon has the ability to tell you what to do or how to solve certain puzzles. Stan has the ability to pick locks, but all of the characters can do this, Stan just does it quicker. Ashley is skilled in combat and can double swing or double shoot a gun. Kenny who is the typical jock stereotype of the group, can sprint for at a high estimate 7 seconds before getting out of breath. I actually ran faster with Josh because he seems to take longer strides. The combat is ok but i had some recurring problems on certain bosses, you would have to stand at a certain angle and shoot, and i didnt figure this out till my 700th time through so i ended up wasting a lot of ammo. One thing i didn't like about the characters is that they all had their own personalities, which is fine! They just didnt seem emotionally attached to each other at all. For example, (SPOILERS) halfway though the game before we find Kenny, his sister Shannon dies, when we find Kenny, he doesnt ask abut where his sister is and nobody tells him! This is because anybody can die at any time, but there should still be some emotion!!! All in all i LOVED obscure, it just has some glaring issues that i couldnt overlook, i highly recommend this game.

If you only plan on playing, say, ten or less Resident Evil and Silent Hill-styled third-person "survival horror" games in the course of your brief and precious time on this planet, you probably shouldn't make this one of them...in fact, the best of the aforementioned franchises as well as that of the Dead Space universe should keep you more than rewardingly occupied. If however, like my unfortunate self, you are incurably addicted to games which remind you of that first-ever magical experience of playing the original Resident Evil on the Playstation 1, and have been seeking to recreate the unprecedented terror and freshness of that experience ever since, then you could do much, much worse than this particular game, 'cause for better or for worse, it's still one of the better Resident Evil rip-offs around.

Obscure certainly owes an extraordinary amount to the first two Residents. The high school it's set in looks a little uncannily like a spooky mansion at times, and heck, there's even a large emphasis on sinister plants and underground labs and what-not. Add the flashlights from the Silent Hill games, and the monsters-who-are-adversely-affected-by-the-light elements from Alone In The Dark: A New Nightmare (another oldie, but goodie), and you pretty much have this game. But really, if you're the kind of person I described at the end of the last paragraph, this ain't exactly gonna be something you'll complain about, right?

I somehow never got around to this one when it was on the Playstation 2 - the high school setting somehow didn't inspire me at the time - but I'm glad to say I was wrong to abstain for so long. Not "classic" exactly...but certainly respectable enough to be a must-play for the likes of yours truly. Sure, it's nothing to write home about (unless your mother is also a fan of such games), but also not something for the horror-faithful to pass up, especially on sale. I personally bought it at full price, and even then didn't feel ripped-off. It's about the length it should be (i.e. mercifully shorter than the otherwise superior Dead Spaces), about as difficult as it should be (i.e. not overly so, with the possible exception of a slightly questionable save system and a truly ♥♥♥♥ty final boss fight), has all the expected weapons (well, for an AMERICAN high school campus, anyway), and an actually pretty darn excellent soundtrack (which comes free in a separate folder with the game). Hell, the AI for the single-player version (wherein you babysit a fellow high-schooler/"partner", who you can switch to at any time) isn't even that bad, as these things go...sure the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s get in the way occasionally, but only about 20% of the time, which is pretty acceptable all things considered.

In short, not too shabby at all. Not terribly scary for a game of this type, with a story as poorly-constructed and real-world illogical as you would expect, and the characters make those in Friday the 13th movies look positively layered by comparison (the distinct "special skills" of the characters is certainly a nice touch, but do we honestly need the guy who runs slightly faster than everyone else, or the guy who picks locks slightly faster than everyone else?)...but lower your expectations suitably, and you just might be pleasantly surprised. I certainly was, and look forward to playing the sequel.

Verdict: 8/10.

It's like playing a cheesy horror movie, which sounds terrible. but I loved this, it's Resident Evil/Alone in the Dark/Alan Wake in a High School.
The music is 10/10, spooky and fits the school theme super well. All Choir-like and ♥♥♥♥. Which is spooky.
The fact once one of your five characters die, they stay dead is great too. And you can't really combat it with saving every 3 seconds either, as the saves are pretty limited. Though even with that, it's not hard at all to have all characters survive until the end.
The game is still in 4:3 ratio though, so if you're autistic enough to care about two black bars at the side of your screen, that'll annoy you. But other than that, the graphics are good (for their time) and the areas have a very creepy feel to them. Mix that with the perma-death, and you find yourself fearing for your life at times.
The story itself is a bit dumb, there's no arguing that, but it's very similar to an old cheesy horror movie, and the plot itself is pretty far-fetched, none the less, still easy to enjoy.
The game doesn't hold your hand very much throughout it, which is good, though at times it's pretty easy to get lost at certain parts of the map.
I've played with both a Keyboard and Gamepad, if you have a gamepad, use it. It just makes everything ser much easier.
It's also 90s as ♥♥♥♥.

Would recommend tho, I wrote a whole review on it, and I'm lazy as ♥♥♥♥. So it cant be too bad.

When I first heard of ObsCure in it's making in 2003 I had high hopes for it. When I later got my hands on it and installed it I was blown away by how good the game was.
It's based on the movie "The Facukty" wich has been a movie favorite off mine for along time. It borrows gameplay style from both the "Resident Evil" and the "Silent Hill" games, and throws in stuff on it's own. Like "Co-op" whit a friend. The only complain I have about the Co-op is that it's on only on the same screen.
The story is nothing new, but it has alot of twists and turns that makes it interesting throw the whole game.
The 5 playable charecters isen't developed much, but in their own way some of them is more usefull threw out the game.
So if you are a fan of the old "Resident Evil" and "Silent Hill" should definety play this game!

Short version: Solid playstyle, AMAZING music, reminds me of original Resident Evil, but wasn't scary for me personally and the story isn't anything new. A fair 3/5: nothing bad, but nothing that you'd gush about to your friends either.


Long version: Obscure draws a lot on the original Resident Evil games. Limited supplies, fixed camera angles (which I never had a problem with but other people hate), and puzzles that are for the most part very logical with only one emblem-style lock.

There is also the partner system. In this game you play as part of a duo of characters, selected from a pool of 5. On a PC, I think you can play local coop but it requires player 2 to use a PC controller or somehow hook up a second keyboard. The different characters have different abilities which are all handy and none are essential enough that you feel bad for not taking them (though since Josh can tell you if there are any pickups left in a room, you may feel paranoid without him).

When playing solo, you can switch which partner you control with the F key, and the AI is rather good about not being an idiot and I've never had a particular issue with it. Combat is solid with an excellent auto-lock system, just keep an eye on your ammo.

The characters are drawn on basic high school stereotypes but none of it is as intolerable as some other reviews may make it appear. The voice acting and dialogue is both unimpressive but also lacking any memorable cheesiness along the lines of "Master of Unlocking" or "Jill Sandwich".

Having said that, the voices may be bland but OH MY GOD THE MUSIC IS AMAZING! It's very good and a great mood-setter.

Take everything bad about Resident Evil and Silent Hill, mix in elements of the 1998 movie The Faculty, and the result is a cheesy game that tries to be serious, but is laughably terrible
