Steam tiene un gran vacío para mí. Si, le falta algo. Esta desprovisto de una parte fundamental en una plataforma de videojuegos. El terror. Apenas tiene títulos de esa temática. No es que no tenga buenos, es que tiene pocos. Solo tenemos un Silent Hill, la saga Dead Space incompleta, ningún clásico para amenizar con todos los que existen… Por suerte, tenemos Obscure.

Obscure te pone en la piel de cinco alumnos del Instituto Leafmore en lo que será la peor noche de sus vidas. La narrativa es muy de película americana, gusta, no es profunda pero cumple para un juego de este estilo. Amenizada con unas cinemáticas muy cuidadas y con ese regusto a antaño que tan poco se ve ya. El sistema de control, clásico, el de los primeros Silent Hill o Resident Evil’s que, traducido para los más nuevos, es un sistema algo tosco pero con un encanto único que se ha perdido hace mucho.
Vamos a deslgosar.

A nivel gráfico el juego cumple sobradamente teniendo en cuenta el año de su lanzamiento haya por el 2005. Las animaciones, el diseño de los escenarios y el de enemigos están muy cuidados. Ni una pega en ese aspecto.

A nivel jugable es genial. Usa un sistema de botones típico en la temática (Te equipas con un arma y luego atacas) y las combinaciones de ítems se hacen de manera satisfactoria. Los puzles sumados a su forma de resolverlos encajan a la perfección con todo lo que puedes exigirle. Cada alumno tiene una habilidad especial y con ella resuelves mejor las situaciones, uno puede esprintar y es más fuerte, otro sabe hacekar etc… Además, pueden morir permanentemente y eso le da un encanto especial.

La música tiene varios temas para recordar, sobretodo el principal que cada vez que lo escuches te va a hacer sentir algo especial. A nivel sonoro cumple y en ciertos momentos incluso destaca.
La narrativa si bien es un poco floja comparada con los juegos más cercanos y parecidos (Donde el nombre de Silent Hill sale a la vista) cumple también. Es cerrada y nos lo explica todo de una buena manera. No es muy compleja pero si llega a enganchar, encontrar los documentos para saber mas es algo adictivo, es lo bonito de estos títulos el poder explorar los mapas y saber que siempre encontraras algo realmente útil. Aquí la munición y los botiquines si te salvan la vida… Literalmente, recuerda que los alumnos mueren.


Puntos positivos:

- Uno de los pocos títulos de verdadero Survival Horror que tenemos en Steam. Clásico de verdad en todos sus aspectos. Un digno competidor de Silent Hill en PC’s.
- El sistema de combate y control.
- Los mapas, el instituto Leafmore esta recreado de una manera genial, con sus mapas y todas sus habitaciones en su sitio. Da gusto explorarlo.
- El modelado en general de personaje, armas y enemigos.
- Todo el juego derrocha pasión y esfuerzo. Se nota que fue creado con ganas.
- La atmosfera. Perfecta.
- La música, con temas redondos y unos efectos que encajan a la perfeción.
- Perfectamente adaptado a Steam. Tiene logros (¡Y que logros! Es súper entretenido sacar el 100%) funciona perfectamente con mando y…
- ¡Cooperativo! Por desgracia es solo local pero es el único juego de este estilo que conozco con el cual puedas enchufar otro mando y sufrir junto a un amigo. Una sensación acojonante y que merece la pena probar.


Puntos negativos:

- La historia, cumple pero se podía haber dado un poco más de sí.
- La duración. Es rejugable para los logros pero solo da 10-15 horas para el 100% lo cual, en un titulo de estos, es “poco”.
- El cooperativo debería ser online no solo local. Con eso este juego tendría un 10 de 10.
- Es “fácil” si estas acostumbrado a los juegos de este estilo. Pero no es un punto malo del todo, ni mucho menos. Debería ponerlo en “puntos neutrales” Es un juego para iniciarse.


Apuntes finales:

Obscure es un juegazo. Con todas las letras. Uno de los pocos títulos de verdadero terror que podemos probar en Steam. Eso si, es un poco “Light” comparado con otros de sus competidores como Silent Hill. Pero eso no lo hace malo, ni mucho menos, lo hace perfecto para un público un poco menos acostumbrado a estos títulos. Es perfecto para iniciarse en este estilo y probar un poco de la verdadera esencia de los juegos de antaño. La mejor manera de definir a Obscure es Survival Horror Soft, pero tiene calidad para dar la talla y superarla.
Ojala algún día se animen a sacar Obscure III siguiendo la tematica del primero y el segundo. Triunfarían en un sector que, por desgracia, ahora está de capa caída.
Si eres un amante del Survival Horror, compra obligada. Y más al precio que tiene y lo bien adaptado que esta a Steam…

El instituto Leafmore te espera. La noche es larga.

Para tener los años que tiene ha envejecido muy bien. Es un juego entetenido, un survival horror clásico al estilo película de terror light para adolescentes. La jugabilidad es correcta (yo lo he jugado con mando XBOX) y no es complicado de manejar.

La historia es sencilla pero funcional: un colega ha desaparecido y los chicos se quedan en el instituto encerrados buscándolo para encontrarse con un escenario de pesadilla con monstruos en la oscuridad, científicos locos y experimentos de principios de siglo. Hay documentos por el mapeado pero si te pierdes alguno tú tranquilo que un diario detallado que se encuentra tirando al final te cuentan la historia completa y comentada por si estabas en el baño cuando los protas leyeron los documentos.

La ambientación está lograda. El colegio está muy bien desarrollado y el mapa, aunque te lo vas a recorrer de cabo a rabo por exigencias del guión, no se hace pesado. Además los desarrolladores no usan el vil truco de hacerte recorrer varias veces los mismos pasillos por completo. Sí que es cierto que irás y volverás a algunos sitios, pero siempre que pasa eso se abre alguna puerta para atajar, cosa que se agradece.

Cuentas con varios personajes que pueden ir de dos en dos. Cada personaje tiene sus habilidades. Algunas son tan útiles como tener un primo en Cuenca (la niña que da pistas evidentes es para matarla) pero otras te ahorran dar vueltas sin sentido (el chico que te dice si queda algo por revisar en la habitación es un chollo). Otro paisano abre cerraduras y una de las chicas al parecer zurra fuerte (no sé, a mí me la mataron nada más empezar). El detalle de que los personajes mueran de verdad hará que te pongas las pilas en algunos sitios. Puedes darle instrucciones a tu compañero pero no te esperes un Rainbow Six. Aquí son 'espera', 'ayúdame', 'cambia el arma' y 'ven conmigo'. Si te soy sincero la única que he usado en toda la partida es 'espera' cuando entraba en un sitio en el que sabía que me iban a matar al cenutrio que viene contigo (no son demasiado espabilados para escapar de un follón).

¿Cosas que no me han gustado? El uso de las cámaras. En aquella época no podías jugar con todos los ángulos como ahora así que las cámaras son fijas. En realidad eso mola porque pueden usar encuadres originales para darle más personalidad al juego (siempre recordaré el primer Alone in the Dark o en Silent Hill). El problema aquí es que muchas veces los ángulos quedan de tal manera que ves a tu personaje de frente y no a los monstruos que vienen a por él. No es nada del otro mundo porque el personaje apunta automáticamente pero a mí me fastidia. Peor es cuando por culpa de un ángulo no te das cuenta de que hay una puerta o hueco y estás un rato dando vueltas por la zona sin saber para donde tirar. Pero vamos: tampoco es que lo haga injugable. Molesta un poco nada más.

Otra cosa que no me ha gustado son ciertos agujeros del guión que parecen de novelista quinceañero. Lo pongo en spoilers porque destripo la trama del juego: ¿en serio nadie se dio cuenta de que el fundador del colegio es el director actual y que tendría más de 100 años? ¡si está en los contratos y hay fotos en las paredes!. Las reacciones de los personajes ante lo que sucede también son un poco tontas: '¿no has vistos los monstruos del pasillo?' 'no flipes, yo vengo aquí a cambiar mis notas'. Pero bueno: eso se lo perdono porque es una película de terror adolescente.

En fin: un juego entretenido, bastante fácil (te lo pasas del tirón en una tarde) que pese a sus años te hará pasar un buen rato. Está tirado de precio así que lo recomiendo sin dudarlo (si encima pillas una oferta ya ni lo dudes).

Le pongo un 6.

Lo bueno que tiene es que la historia esta interesante, la musica es a veces espeluznante pero con un buen ambiente que le cabe anillo al dedo en el ambiente, un fantastico doblaje de "película" siendo un videojuego (que lastima que en el 2 no lo tenga..) y unps gráficos muy buenos para ser de hace bastante tiempecito.

Lo malo son los comandos, no valen para cualquier mando de plataforma, los compañeros son unos inutiles, sobra bastante ver a la tipa rubia teñia que se le enfoquen las bragas (la broma puede durar un poco pero no siempre cuando se hacen alguna interación, ya cansa), la dificultad esta un poco mal compensada y no te da a la idea que tienes que hacer aunque tengas un mapa y te meten unos sustos un tanto innecesarios.

Lo recomiendo pero no es un buen juego de miedo, de misterio excelente.

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...

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.

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.

Well, first off I want to state that I played Obscure only in local-coop (there is actual NO online co-op) and will review the game as such. And I have to say that Obscure is one of the best co-op experiences I've ever had. The nature of the game makes playing together necessary or rather playing "solo" impossible.

But let's start at the beginning and look at the different parts of the game:
- The story: It is interesting enough to pay attention but don't expect too much from a survival horror game. The premise is that Kenny vanished on the school grounds so his friends decide to stay after school and to search for him.

- The gameplay: You have 4 or 5 characters you can choose from each with their own hitpoints (so you can change at the actual meeting place if one is hurt too much) and their own little special ability. For example Josh can tell if there is still something in the room for you to pick up which is actually helpful. Also the characters can die and you can keep playing the game till all of them are dead.
The camera angles are "dynamically fixed" (comparable to Resident Evil: Code Veronica X if you know that game) which means you will see the area always from the same direction but it will move with you to a certain degree. Also the camera is fixed on player one. This means in co-op the second player can go off screen and die there pretty easily. So you need to stay together. Other than that you have the Resident Evil room like system meaning that most time ennemies will not follow you in another room (there are small exceptions).
The ammonition is scarce (on normal there is more than enough). The same goes for the healing items and the discs needed to save (yes you can save everywhere as long as you have the disc item but each save will waste one of them). There are also melee weapons which help to save ammo on different ennemies.
The fighting itself is normal but has an interesting additional mechanic: the use of light. You can use your flashlight to make the ennemies "weaker" as they have some kind of creep protecting them which is sensitive to light. But while you use the flashlight power mode you can't shoot so you have to make a decision which gives a tiny little small amount of tactics. Other than that you have different type of weapons and ammo.

- The soundtrack: It creates the necessary atmosphere for the game and I liked it a lot. A small grain of salt for players who owned the PS version. The intro song has been changed. You can look up the old intro and the song was definetely better but the license expired. It is not the end of the world.

- Replayability: After completing the game there is a hard mode and you get alternate costumes. And the hard mode in this one is actually really hard. Ammo is divided by atleast two, some weapons are obtained only later on, discs are halved as well and healing items are cut to a fourth I had the feeling and yes, monster do make more damage. With the AI this mode can probably end pretty bad. Also completing the Hard mode is necessary for you achievement completionists. With a good partner you can get all achievements in around 10 hours.

Well I don't know what to say more. If you like survival horror games like Resident Evil 1 - Code Veronica X and you are searching for really good local co-op experience then you should definetely get this one (although some may think it is a bit expensive for its age, I got it for the full price and did not regret the purchase).

PS: If you have questions just ask. I'll try to answer them as fast as possible.
PPS: It's a shame that I never got the chance to play Resident Evil Outbreak Multiplayer Mode (or even the single player mode since it didn't sound as much as fun as playing with others).

An old school survival horror,in which 5 students brave the horrors unleashed on their school,which manages to stay enjoyable despite its age.

Pros:

-fairly interesting story
-considering its age,graphics are still decent
-oldschool soundtrack has a retro but still enjoyable quality to it
-coop is an option
-a few extras/game mode unlocks for those so inclined

Neutral:

-permadeath on characters,adds to the challenge but can lead to frustration and/or force a reload
-limited amount of saves

Cons:

-pretty cheesy overall
-clunky controls and poor autoaim make combat harder than it'd be (I used a controller,so can't vouch for k/m)
-uninspired last boss battle
-companion AI isn't the best
-despite having 5 characters there's not alot of difference between them,nor are they really fleshed out background-wise
-short length
-no widescreen support

Overall Obscure is a decently enjoyable experience and a good throwback to old school games,but you have to accept its shortcomings-some of which come from its age-to properly enjoy it.

I'd say go for it when it's on sale if you already had your fill of old survival horror titles and are looking for more,just don't expect to find a life changing game experience.

This game is a lightweight horror game that can be easily played in a day or so by those who find most other horror games to be too intmidating to play.

In other words, usually during a game like Silent Hill or Dead Space I find myself freezing in fear or throwing the controller in the air and hitting myself with it, not so with this game. I was finally able to play a horror game completely on my own without a friend to use as a crutch . . . even if I did have to play it with the lights on in the middle of the day.

The controls are pretty easy to get a handle of, no awkward turning and shooting mechanics that a lot of much older horror games have

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.

Rated 6.5/10

Obscure is a multiplayer (local only) survival horror game. The game takes place at Leafmore High where 4 students go in search of one of their friends who went missing on campus. During the search they discover that the school is hiding many mysterious that could be directly tied to their friends dissapearance. It has been said that this game takes inspiration from the late 90s flick "The Faculty". After completing the game I am convinced this is true.

The game plays much like what you would expect from a traditional survival horror game. You will explore the campus in search of keys and levers to gain access to new areas all while discovering readable documents to fill you in on plot details. You may also be rewarded for exploring by discovering ammunition, healing items or even CD's which you can use to save the game. The CD's work very similar to Resident Evil's ink ribbons except that you can save at any time as long as you have a CD in your inventory. There are also a fair share of puzzles to solve, most of which prove fairly simple.

One of Obscure's strong points comes from it's combat. The combat in general is pretty basic, you can shine your light on enemies to hold them at bay while firing away with your guns, however if you pay attention to your surroundings you can often use the environment to your advantage. (Just remember the enemies are weakened by light).

One of Obscure's weakpoints comes from the AI. Again the game does have a local coop option and it is obvious that is how the game was meant to be played. Playing through on single player you will control 2 characters at a time. You will be in direct control of 1 and the other will be controlled by AI, however you can swap back and fourth between these two characters with the press of a button. Don't get me wrong, the AI knows how to dish out damage. Where they fall short is in their ability to avoid damage and once your AI dies, they are dead. Gone for the rest of the game and will never respawn. If you are playing single player, make sure to your AI does not have a bat for a weapon or they will die. Stick them with a pistol and keep them away from certain enemy types and you should manage just fine.

Obscure was indeed a fun playthrough once you learn how to work with the AI. The exploring is satisfying and the atmosphere is just creepy enough to keep you on edge. The game is relatively short and you can expect to finish in around 5 hours. If you are a fan of the older Resident Evil styled horror games you will enjoy Obscure. I recommend the energy drinks.

Lo que no entiendo es por que ya que ponen el Obscure 1-2 en Steam, ¿no lo ponen con la banda sonora original?.
Creo que es un gran fallo que no les gustara nada alos fans de esta saga.

I played Obscure back on the PS2 at its original release and remember being pleasently surprised. This game utilises "fixed camera angles" like the classic Resident Evil and Silent Hill games but mixes it up with a cheesy high school teen slasher flick story, and combining gameplay from both franchises. This survival horror has alot of the classic elements you would expect; variety of actual puzzles, limited supplies, dark and tense atmosphere, unique monster designs and since this is a co-op experience, reliability on your partner.

Speaking of partners each different character you can play as, and switch to at any time, have their own special abilities - so it is advisable to use different characters in the appropriate situation, I think this adds depth to the gameplay.

The story is cheesy, not serious, but there is a charm to it. It also features my favourite "game fetish" storyline in which everything is normal at first, but slowly devulges into the horror you came to expect, and you have to fight and learn the mystery behind how this all happened.

The combat is basic, there is auto-lock, power attacks and standard attacks, but that's all this game needs I feel. The good thing is that the controls are easy to learn and complexity is not needed here.

Unfortunately, for me, the music is quickly forgettable so don't expect some Akira Yamaoka level of quality here. That being said, what I hear fits what is happening, just that it isn't something you would listen to casually.

I recommend this game to fans of the classic RE and SH games, and looking for their fix on survival horror with some original concepts to it. However, this game was originially released back in 2005, so expect some outdated mechanics compared to modern horror.

Also, this PC port is a re-release of an older port but adds native widescreen support and full controller support, among general optimisations to work on modern Windows systems. The only bummer is that there is still no mouse support. I should also mention the game does indeed run at 60fps.

I remember playing this years back on PS2 and PC.

If you like survival horror games, you will like this one.

This reminds of those high school horror movies played out at as a 3rd person survival horror game.

The gameplay, action, suspense and camera movement is much like what you would find in games like Alone in the Dark, Resident Evil: Code Veronica, Silent Hill and Cold Fear, except in this game you play as several high school students, Stan, Kenny, Ashley, Shannon and Josh, that you can switch over to at any time and you will need to for teamwork to pass certain obstacles. The game feels good in that way because it brings extra life to the game rather than thinking you are playing as a lonely character. Each character has a special ability which will make progressing through the game easier if you don't let them get killed.

Stan by far is the best character. His personality is just too carefree and cool. :P

But if you want to have real fun, invite a friend over and grab an extra controller for 2 player Co-op playing out the story of the game. It is a lot of fun! You can even share items and weapons, passing them to each other when needed.

A couple of downsides are that the game hasn't been updated to support wide screen monitors, so you will have a 4:3 aspect ratio unless you lower the res to 1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1152x864 or lower to get a full screen without side borders. Also, use of a controller is highly recommended as the game really wasn't optimized for mouse and keyboard.

Obscure is a great game though and yet another surprise to appear on Steam. :)

I used to play this all the time with my brother on the original Xbox back when it first released, and I won't lie, I bought this game purely for nostalgic reasons.

The game's plot is pretty weak overall, basically A group of high school students stay behind after school just to find that the whole place is full of these creepy monster things after dark. There's more to it than that, but that's the basic gist of things. Each of the high school students have their own special abilities, ranging from stronger attacks, the ability to sprint, and instant lock picking certain doors and lockers. If during the game you get one of the high school students killed, then they shall remain dead throughout the course of the game and the ending will change accordingly.

Combat is a little sluggish, you'll often find yourself mashing the attack/shoot button in the direction of your enemy until they fall down. There's not a whole lot of depth to it, but some enemies will require a little pre-thinking strategy before going against. Ammo is also scarce, so you can't use your guns on everything you see either. The weapon management in this game is very simple, yet effective. For example, shining your flashlight on a monster will weaken it, and if you manage to find some tape, you can tape your flashlight onto a gun so you can use them at the same time. You can get better flashlights than others so you have to be careful on what you want to use your tape on. Nothing ground breaking, but a nice touch of item management none the less. You can also find healing items that will restore lost health. Again, healing items are scarce, so don't go tanking too many hits with the same character. The game does have simple puzzles, but nothing that you need to spend too long thinking about.

Where this game really shines though, is in the coop mode. Sadly it's only local coop, but nearly the whole game can be played with a friend (besides the tutorial at the start). Item management between players is very self explanatory, and everything can be shared between players. The camera is shared between the players, meaning no split screen and it'll only focus one player. However you can alternate who you want the camera to follow at any time, and a lot of the camera angles complement the idea of two players so it isn't that much of an issue.

All in all, this game is pretty much a lower quality version of the older resident evil games. It's not very scary, the combat is okay at best and the game isn't too long either. However the coop aspect in my opinion makes all of it worth it, so if you have a friend you can play this with, then buy away!

If you're interested in looking at the game, my friend and I have just started a let's play of this steam version on our channel. I'll just leave a link here in case you want to check it out:

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 ♥♥♥♥♥♥ 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.
