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.

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...

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.

Don't expect to much from the Story!
The Gameplay is great, especially in Coop.
Its a bit like the Lego-Coop-Games...well...with more blood and death and gore etc.

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.

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 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.

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.
