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.

Прекрасный survival-horror про школьную тематику.Хочу похвалить в этой игре завораживающий саундтрек, хороший сюжет, проработанных персонажей и конечно полную атмосферу. К сожалению в obscure нельзя играть по сети, но можно позвать друга/подругу за один пк и провести прекрасно время вникая в сюжет. Насчет управления можно играть на джойстике(от хbox360 подходит) или на клавиатуре. Плохо что русский язык не вставили. Рекомендую купить и пройти данную игру не смотря на графику. Игра стоит своих денег....

Ужастик на выживание, он же survival horror, сделанный по старым лекалам и вышедший изначально в 2004 году на приставке Playstation 2. Безусловно игра будет интересна любителям жанра и молодежных ужастиков, тем более, что не обошлось без интересных находок для того времени. Имеется 5 персонажей, 5 уникальных способностей, 2 концовки, зависящие от целостности группы учеников и самое главное для такого рода игр - атмосфера. Музыка конечно тоже неплоха, но уж слишком она вся на один мотив, зато звуки не подкачали и уделаться пару раз, пока тыкаетесь по углам в поисках патронов, вам точно удастся. Как говорится, поклонникам школы Playstation 1 -2 посвящается.

Ужасы в старшей школе.

Obscure - игра в жанре survival horror, вышедшая в 2004 году. События игры разворачиваются в обычной старшей школе, пример такой школы вы можете увидеть в фильме "Факультет". Кстати в Obscure есть несколько отсылок к этому фильму. Как обычно после неудавшихся экспериментов зло вырывается наружу, отсюда и возникли все проблемы, с которыми придётся столкнуться нашим главным героям.

-Геймплей- а главными героями являются 5 обычных школьников. Каждый из них обладает различными способностями, за счёт чего изменяется геймплей. Взаимодействие между друзьями является очень важной частью геймплея. Управлять можно двумя героями, передать управление каждому из которых можно в любой момент игры. Отмечу также, что они могут умереть в игре, но игра продолжится, ведь по итогу от количества оставшихся игроков зависит концовка игры, которых тут две. Количество монстров можно пересчитать по пальцам. Но их уничтожение не ограничивается обычной стрельбой по ним. Они очень боятся света, который наносит им непоправимый урон, поэтому они окружены тьмой, дающей им определённую защиту, из-за чего приходится тратить большее количество патронов. Поэтому сперва следует уничтожить тьму вокруг них с помощью фонаря, который вы можете как носить просто в руке, так и прекрепить к оружию. Оружия тут также не так много: это оружие ближнего боя - биты, палки; и дальнего - пистолеты, дробовики.
-Графика и музыка- особо на картинку расчитывать не стоит, игра стара и даже переиздание не избавило её от чёрных полос по бокам экрана. А вот музыку время не испортит. Все композиции, написанные французским композитором и спетые детским хором, отлично вписываются в игру.

Спустя столько времени обе части Obscure вышли в Steam по довольно-таки смешной цене и появился повод вновь пройти их, несмотря на некоторые недостатки. В любом случае это очень хороший хоррор, как ни крути.

-Наслаждайтесь солнцем, пока это возможно.

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.

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.

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.
