Riguardo questo gioco

Da un po' di tempo, la Leafmore High School è teatro di inspiegabili sparizioni. In questo gioco survival horror prenderai il controllo di 5 studenti americani. Con i tuoi amici cercherai di fare luce sugli strani eventi che stanno avendo luogo in questa normale scuola superiore. La notte sarà lunga e sopravvivere non sarà uno scherzo...

Alcuni anni fa, strani eventi hanno iniziato a verificarsi nella tranquilla scuola di Leafmore. Alcuni studenti dicono di aver udito terribili urla, e si parla anche di alcune misteriose sparizioni.
Dopo la strana scomparsa di uno dei loro amici, un gruppo di studenti prende in mano la situazione e decide di indagare su questi terribili eventi. Una sera, dopo le lezioni, il gruppo si chiude all'interno della scuola, iniziando a investigare per scoprire che cosa stia succedendo.
Shannon, Kenny, Ashley, Stan e Josh cercheranno di scoprire cosa abbia trasformato la loro scuola in un incubo, cercando di sopravvivere lungo tortuosi corridoi e in classi buie e terrificanti.

- Scopri il gioco diventato un culto del genere survival horror.
- Ogni studente all'interno del gruppo ha una propria abilità speciale.
- Utilizza tantissime diverse armi: mazze da baseball, pistole, fucili a pompa e tante altre.
- Risolvi difficili enigmi.
- Gioca in modalità giocatore singolo o in modalità cooperativa sullo stesso schermo.
- Colonna sonora composta dal pluripremiato Olivier Derivière.
- Compatibile con il controller Xbox 360.

L'alunno Hydravision è intelligente, ma potrebbe applicarsi di più.

Una vera sorpresa questo Obscure, un titolo uscito in sordina ma in grado di rivaleggiare degnamente con i capisaldi del genere, a partire proprio dai suoi concorrenti diretti quali Resident Evil Outbreak e Silent Hill 4.
Se da un lato il titolo Microids appare fin troppo debitore ai titoli sopra citati, sia per il gameplay che per alcune scelte di design e di regia, dall'altro introduce interessanti novità come la modalità cooperativa a due e l'ambientazione da teen movie che si distacca da quanto visto finora; un titolo non perfetto, dunque, qualche limatura per quanto riguarda la giocabilità e il carisma dei vari protagonisti gli avrebbe senz'altro giovato, ma il titolo piace e convince già così com'è e risulta essere consigliatissimo per coloro che desiderino provare un'esperienza un po' diversa dal solito.

uno dei migliori giochi horror , la durata non è uno degli aspetti positivi però il poco tempo basterà per accontentare tutti gli amanti dell'horror , quindi non parliamo di c*#@e come Slanderman bensì di perle come Silent hill 2 . idee originali e ben implementate ed è molto divertente in CO-OP , sfortunatamente solo in locale . spero implementitno la CO-OP Online ..

I first got my hands on Obscure back in 2004, on PS2. Was quite surprised to see it on Steam. It's one of the games which reserved a spot in my memory. I remember having a lot of fun playing it, and i got the same pleasure replaying it after 10 years.

Obscure is an old-school horror survival game which manages to entertain by offering a cheesy story, influenced by the Robert Rodriguez's "The Faculty" movie. It uses the music from the movie and even contains a character based on it. Even though i heavily disliked the movie, Obscure succeeded in offering me a whole different perspective.

You have 5 students trying to escape their school, from an entire horde of monsters created by their Principal who was experimenting on students. You can choose to play for any of them, and at any time a second player can join the game for any other character, which doesn't force you to start a new game if you want to play local co-op with a friend. Each one of them has a different special ability like running faster, better healing, or picking locks skills. I loved especially the method of saving the game. You do it using a CD which you need to find in-game, and i consider it to be an important aspect in a survival game, so that one won't be able to save every 2 minutes since the amount of CD's you can find is limited. The outstanding soundtrack composed by Olivier Derivière, in this particular environment, creates a even creepier atmosphere. There are few types of monsters, and also limited types of weapons, but what makes it better is that except weapons there is something else that hurts monsters - light. So when you are in a room with windows, and got yourself cornered - you can always break some windows and let them know who the boss is, as for the rooms with no windows - one can combine any firearm with a flashlight. I didn't notice for the light of the flashlight to inflict any damage, but at least it keeps the monster at distance for a short period of time.

There are also some cons of course, but none which caused me any inconvenience. You can choose a resolution up to 1920x1080 but the game does not support widescreen so you'll just get a 4:3 aspect with black borders on the right and left side. Playing it with keyboard & mouse is possible, but not entirely comfortably. At least i couldn't do it, so i just used a Xbox 360 controller which worked just great. Graphics are not the best, but also not awful, especially for a 10 years old game. I enjoyed Obscure very much, and would recommend it to anyone who likes old school survival games. Looking forward to play the second game. Hope i'll enjoy it as much as the first. Cheers ;)

* NOTE > The game also includes all the Deluxe Edition content: Soundtrack, Artwork, Screenshots, Sketches...

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.

One of the better classic survival horror games that I have played. I wanted this on the PS2, but the games a tad pricey when buying it, as it's a semi collectible. So, I was over joyed to find it on steam AND with full Controller support(as long as you enable it from the options menu. It doesnt detect an xbox gamepad unfortunately)

Now, as with most old school survival horror games, the story is very unrealistic and centers on a group of kids, who does the most rational thing one could do upon hearing a high school friend of there's didn't come home the night before: They sneak into the school with a baseball bat and begin busting open vendor machines and windows.

Still, the game looks gorgeous for a classic game, and plays flawlessly! If you love games like Resident Evil and Dino Crisis and love movies like the Faculty, then you will love this game to bits!

I played Obscure on my ps2 back in 2004. I found it for 5 euros in my local store, and I couldn't believe how a good deal it was. The game is a real gem, a survival horror game settled in an average american school, in where you take the control of 5 friends that have to survive in a very hostile enviroment. Puzzles, exploration, action, and of course a lot of scary moments, and also you will find some humour. A very balanced game, many hours of fun and a lot of extras.

As for the Steam version, it runs perfectly. No bugs reported in the entire game. Enhanced graphics, smooth controls. A must-buy if you like horror games, or if you used to own a copy of the ps2 version.

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,

This is a game I would certainly reccomend, and it certainly has a different type of idea about the conflict. Most games have a zombie virus, or nuclear waste, but in this one, it has a type of plant. Again, I would reccomend it to anyone looking for a good third-person Horror game. It gets rather frustrating during the end though, and I caution all of those prone to stress production.

This game really put out a different form and genre of the already "Survival Horror" genre that we are well known of. What takes this game beyond it's father and mother games (Silent Hill series, Resident Evil, and Alone in the Dark series)
This game has a very unique story line that twists and turns as you play through it, as any of the 5 characters in the game. Each character has a different skill set that helps you progress through different areas in a more player friendly style of way. The setting is very cool, very eerie as you complete your mission at the school. The game is scary, its unique and different, It has a very good soundtrack and a simple but fun story line. It does have replay value, a special edition version, which is a very cool basic directors cut version of the game. They do have a sequal as well, But by all means play Obscure before you play Obscure 2.
8/10

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 really good game, as a horror it's more b-horror so it's pretty funny, good story, awesome music, good weapons to use, five playable characters each with their own special ability to use which is pretty cool. The enemies were okay, not really scary but interesting story wise. The puzzles were okay but i would of prefered if they were more challenging. Overall a good game.
