Informazioni sul gioco

Due anni fa, un gruppo di giovani ragazzi si è trovato intrappolato all'interno della loro scuola. Hanno affrontato la notte più lunga della loro vita, inseguiti da orribili creature create dal loro preside. Alcuni di loro sono riusciti a sopravvivere a quella terrificante notte, mentre altri sono morti. I sopravvissuti, ora, hanno ripreso a vivere la propria vita, continuando a studiare e arrivando al college.

All'Università di Fallcreek, però, non tutto è come dovrebbe essere: alcuni strani fiori contenenti una insidiosa sostanza in grado di causare strani sogni estremamente verosimili sono spuntati in tutto il campus. Alcuni studenti hanno scoperto che essi sono molto più pericolosi di quanto appaiono. E quando i semi finalmente sbocciano, gli incubi diventano un'orribile realtà...

- Il seguito di ObsCure, ormai diventato un classico del genere survival horror.
- Avventura e azione in una cornice da film horror universitario.
- 6 personaggi con personalità e abilità uniche.
- Modalità cooperativa: un secondo giocatore può unirsi alla partita in qualsiasi momento.
- Scopri indizi e risolvi enigmi.
- Una vasta gamma di armi... e mostri orribili.
- Una indimenticabile colonna sonora composta da Olivier Derivière e eseguita dalla Boston Symphonic Orchestra e dal Paris Opera Children's Choir.
- Compatibile con il controller Xbox 360.

The first game wasn`t anything special,but it had charm
but this sequel is wrong on so many levels

first off there is gameplay.it`s boring.it`s too action oriented and that becomes more frustrating as the game progresses
then there are characters and they are even worse.i dind`t gave a damn about almost any of those characters.Take Sven for example.he has accent so cartoony that i can`t take him seriously and by the way this game was supposed to be horror but it`s in some places so cheesy that i honestly thought it was some kind of a parody.last thing i want to disscus are controls.imagine if you were playing silent hill 3 while having free camera mode without even pressing the button,thats how it plays and it doesn`t go with action oriented gameplaz i mentioned earlier.

there is also a coop,but i didn`t try it,so go ahead if you want.


to sum up this game,if you find it on steam for 5 dollars with the first game,buy it,otherwise i would recommend buy the first one.

I've killed some brain cells
I honestly believe the game is underrated. It just came out too late (at least 5 years I believe), when horror genre already went the other way.
Optional second player on the same screen stealing the camera focus, weird camera positions, auto-aim, cheesy dialogues, flat characters, weird save system, lack of widescreen support and some techical issues make the game look bleak by modern standards.
Nevertheless today it's an original artifact of a niche jenre which is sadly almost extinct these days.

I just can't do it, the first Obscure game grasped what a B movie horror is, even though it had it's clunky stuff with the controls and the exaggerated ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ characters, but the redeeming factor of these issues were that the controls were working and the characters didn't get screen time, the cutscenes were minimal. Now Obscure 2 made these two so f'ing bad, that I can't bear to play this game anymore.

The controls were reworked to some TPS/classical survival horror controls hybrid and it's awful. Just in the first five minutes my character wasn't visible on the screen while I was controlling it. The camera angles are changing by themselves and you can control them too, it's just something I think don't work well together, especially when the execution is so terrible. I have no idea why they implemented this TPS type of feel to the game, the combat is more hectic and chaotic from it, you autolock on stuff and you press left click hoping that they will die before your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AI partner does. Sure, you can play co-op, but I don't know anybody in a 10 mile area who wants to play Obscure 2, ♥♥♥♥ me I guess. Also the enemies are faster, which makes the left clicking and AI not keeping distance even more exciting.

And the storytelling, there are too many dialogues. This sounds ridiculous, but hear me out. When you have annoying teens as your characters who are also underdeveloped and dumb as ♥♥♥♥ you probably want to use them simply as moving flesh to hack. But no, Obscure 2 had to make them talk every 2 minutes, using cringe-worthy and overacted lines. You probably saw it coming, but the voice acting is obviously terrible, so that doesn't help the case.

The only positive thing is that they toned down the loud and unfitting music from the first game, they do this rarely now. The atmosphere also stayed the same as in the first game (not considering the constant hair pulling from the things read above), which is great.

If you liked the first one maybe, but only if you feel like you can handle the more trashy nature of this game than that one.

Obscure 2 mi è piaciuto molto di più di Obscure, perchè durante la storia ci sono molti riferimenti di altri giochi che dopo vi dirò, il gioco rispetto a Obscure è molto migliorato sia come gameplay e sia come grafica molto più piacevole (anche se Obscure ha una buona grafica).
Parlando di gameplay, in alcuni punti ci sono dei mini-giochi per ogni personaggio che ha una particolare abilità per esempio Stan ha l'abilità di scassinare e quindi avrete un mini-gioco per quello, Shannon ha l'abilità di "respirare" l'odore del fiore nero e così via.... la grafica rispetto a Obscure è molto più piacevole e pulita, infatti non ho molto da dire su questo.
L'unico fatto negativo (secondo me) è IA dei compagni che in Obscure era molto migliore, quando hanno finito le munizioni di pistole, fucili, balestra etc... usa la mazza da baseball o altro, ma alcune volte non attacca i nemici, non so se è un bug.
Ora parlando dei "riferimenti" di altri giochi che mi ha davvero fatto piacere, sono molti ma ne dirò soltanto 3 di questi:

1) L'inizio del gioco, l'incubo, questo incubo ci "porterà" in una zona molto familiare per chi ha giocato a Silent Hill (Ospedale Alchemillla), una zona molto identica con barelle dell'ospedale e cadaveri mutilati, e per "scappare" da questo incubo bisogna morire, vi ricorda qualcosa? :) (Incubo di Harry Mason di Silent Hill)

2) A metà gioco circa, bisogna andare via dall'isola e useremo una barca a remi in un lago piena di nebbia, vi ricorda qualcosa? :)
Silent Hill 2, quando James Sutherland userà una barca a remi per andare via dall'isola e andare nell'Hotel di Silent Hill ovviamente c'è la nebbia come in Obscure 2.

3) Non dirò niente su questo, ma ci sarà un riferimento su "Non aprite quella Porta".

Comunque per chi ha giocato ad Obscure, deve assolutamente prendere Obscure 2: The Aftermath, perchè è il sequel di Obscure.

Pro:

+ Migliore del precedente capitolo
+ Gameplay
+ Sequel
+ Storia

Con:

- IA dei compagni

Obscure 2 I liked it much more than Obscure, because throughout history there are many references to other games after that I will tell you, the game is much improved compared to Obscure as both as both graphics and gameplay much more enjoyable (even though he Obscure good graphics).
Speaking of gameplay, in some places there are mini-games for every character that has a particular skill for example Stan has the ability to be broken and then you'll have a mini-game for what, Shannon has the ability to "breathe" the 'smell of black flower and so on .... graphics than Obscure is much more pleasant and clean, in fact I have not much to say about this.
The only bad thing (to me) is AI comrades in Obscure was much better, when they ran out of ammunition of pistols, rifles, crossbows etc ... using the baseball bat or anything, but sometimes it does not attack the enemies I do not know if it's a bug.
Now speaking of "references" of other games that I was really pleased, I am many but I will say only three of these:

1) The beginning of the game, the nightmare, this nightmare will "lead" in an area very familiar to those who played Silent Hill (Alchemillla Hospital), a very same hospital with stretchers and mutilated corpses, and "escape" from this nightmare must die, reminds you of something? :) (Nightmare Harry Mason from Silent Hill)

2) In the middle of the game around, you have to go off the island and we will use a rowboat in a lake full of fog, reminds you of something? :)
Silent Hill 2, when James Sutherland will use a rowboat to get off the island and go to the Hotel Silent Hill course there's the fog like Obscure 2.

3) I will not say anything about this, but there will be a reference to "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre."

However for those who played to Obscure, must absolutely take Obscure 2: The Aftermath, because it is the sequel to Obscure.

Pro:

+ Best of the previous chapter
+ Gameplay
+ Sequel
+ Story

- AI teammates

Obscure 2 è un pò come guardare un buon horror di serie B, fondamentalmente stupido quanto vuoi, ma con quei pochi accorgimenti per cui finisci a non vergognarti di godertelo ed eleggerlo senza troppe remore come personale "guilty pleasure".

Senza infamia e senza lode, Obscure II non spicca per determinate virtù ma neanche pecca in maniera imperdonabile. Divertente e coinvolgente, grazie anche ad un comparto tecnico di rispetto, non si rinnova tuttavia dopo il primo capitolo, restando altresì fedele a problemi storici della serie come le telecamere che, seppure gestibili, risultano un handicap non da poco nei combattimenti. Fateci un pensierino se volete immergervi nel probabile ultimo sprazzo d’horror del “vecchio” monolite nero.

I rented this game on ps2 once, it might have been the dumbest horror game I've ever played. So of course I had to buy it on steam.

Let me just start by saying this game is cheezy, like a bad horror movie, and as a lover of bad horror movies, I love it to death. I loved it on the PS2 when I was 15, and I love it now. That said, if you cannot stomach bad voice acting, this might not be for you. It ping pongs back and forth between being quite good and laughably awful, but when given a chance it has some very tense moments, and the port is, in my opinion, a very good one all things considered. There is the issue that the game is not in widescreen, but it also wasn't on my PS2 so I am not terribly concerned with it. More important to me was the controller support, which thank god was added. There are also some token achievements for those who like that sort of thing, so overall, I am impressed. Overall, if you like cheap horror or old school survival horror, download this little cheap game and have a few hours of fun with it.

Combine a storyline more loopy and incoherent than almost every Japanese anime ever made, a cumbersome real-time item-choosing system guaranteed to make you use those medkits even faster, a save system which ensures you'll have to waste countless minutes at a time getting back to the bit which killed you in the first place, the occasional obstructive "camera angle" almost deliberately designed to ♥♥♥♥ you six-ways-to-Sunday, and some of the ♥♥♥♥♥iest boss fights in all of video game history...and what do you have? Well, oddly enough, a mostly enjoyable and worthwhile gaming experience...but ONLY if you've already played several dozen other post-Resident Evil third-person "survival horror" games, and are so addicted to such curiosities that you'll endure almost any level of punishment in search of that next elusive "fix".

I recently played and wrote a review of the first Obscure in which I declared it a "pleasant surprise", or words to roughly that effect. Given that I had slightly higher expectations of this one in the wake of its more-than-serviceable predecessor, I wouldn't say that I'm "disappointed" so much as a little bewildered at just how nutty and, well, frankly "incompetent" this one so often is.

Don't get me wrong: There's a lot of REALLY GOOD IDEAS here. One improvement it arguably makes over the original are the very distinct "special abilities" which each character has, all of which you will at some point REQUIRE to make progress through the game (as opposed to the "vaguely-useful-but-mostly-inessential" abilities evidenced by most of the characters in Obscure 1). To this effect, most of the puzzle-solving in this game is actually quite clever (though asking the player to pick a tricky lock puzzle in the midst of the climactic boss fight while a monster clobbers you from the side was perhaps pushing the friendship a little)! And the learning curve applied to these virtual "mini-game-within-a-game"s is mostly realistic and achievable, even for a certifiable doofus such as I. The scenery is also frequently interesting and varied...perhaps a little TOO varied for realistic geography purposes, but never mind (just think of it like one of those epic sword-and-sorcery fantasy worlds where a blazingly hot desert and an icy wasteland are just a hop, skip and a jump away from each other...apparently suburban high schools and spooky, near-desolate islands inhabited by in-bred Texas Chainsaw rejects do much the same thing). It's also a game with lots of "personality", not least of all within the characters themselves...plenty of entertaining banter and carry-on whilst the gameplay continues unabated, giving it a convincingly "cinematic" feel and making you actually "care" a little more for the fate of said characters than your average paper cut-out video game personas (off the top of my head, the Walking Dead and Left 4 Dead games are about the only other horror titles so earnestly devoted to giving their protagonists more than two dimensions).

Look, it's pretty clear by now that I have a certain fondness for these games, even if this one in particular infuriated me almost to the point of electronic pulpification. Mostly I'm just relieved that there was never an Obscure 3, 'cause you know that I'd feel obliged to play it, and judging by the quality arc this series has evidenced thus far, it would probably be almost intolerably "bad". ALMOST. In the tradition of the best "trashy" horror films, let's just chalk this one up as a "guilty pleasure"...even if the "pleasure" parts only seem to come in spurts...

Verdict: 8/10.

This is a crazy sequel for the original Obscure. As a fan of the first game, I disliked the first half of the story, but it gains so much on the second half that, for me, this game is as good as the original. The steam version runs fine, no bugs, decent controls, some little issues with the camera, but nothing too serious. If you like the first Obscure, get the second one. You will regret nothing.

It's hard to decide where to start with this one. But I'll start by saying that Obscure: The Aftermath was one hell of a good game and deserves a lot more than the 59 rating it received on Metacritic. This is truly a unique game that has never really been done before. A mix of Resident Evil and Silent Hill with a combat system that isn't ♥♥♥. (Not saying RE and SH's combat systems are ♥♥♥ but it's not fluid and it's just tricky mostly, coming from a huge fan of both series.). Obscure gives you a mix of a good combat system that's fluid and like a classic survival horror having to stop to reload or swing your melee weapon and pretty good co-op gameplay, one of the only true survival horror games that has co-op and it was indeed creepy, co-op doesn't make a game less scary.

Pros:
+Good looking for it's age, not super dated.
+Great co-op and gameplay mechanics/puzzles, not too hard, not too simple.
+Intriguing story that you'll want to know more about and hope for a third game, likable characters although they are pretty cliche. Stoner, techie, vixen, jock, comedian and goth.
+Nice control scheme, X360 controller support with button prompts and vibration.
+Practical Achievements.
+Mostly bug free and stable.
+Creature designs.
+Fun boss fights.
+Just the perfect difficulty.

Cons:
-Voice acting is hit and miss.
-Pre-rendered cutscenes are pretty badly lip synced at times or are in general not very good looking and often times in-game cutscenes are better.
-No widescreen support at all, resolution options are there but the game is letterboxed at 4:3 with side borders.
-Camera can sometimes be weird, though in co-op each player can focus the camera on themselves hitting the right trigger in case they get stuck on a creature or need to have each player in a different location.
-Some bosses can continuously hit you if you get smacked into the perfect position and some boss fights have un-dodgeable moves, no warm-up animations or signs they'll be using their OP move that can't be dodged but most boss fights aren't super difficult.

Other Thoughts:
Now I know you must be thinking: "Wow, that's a lot of cons...sounds like a pain in the ♥♥♥..." well the positives outweigh the cons by a huge margin and honestly the camera isn't that bad and the lip-syncing/hit and miss VA work is understandable for a French indie developer title that released on multiple platforms in 2007, honestly the most annoying aspect of this game is the lack of widescreen support that was available on the PSP version which I had but didn't get the chance to play.

I'd highly recommend this game, specially for someone who just wants a creepy game in general with a good story or someone looking for GOOD scary co-op fun. That game is pretty short but felt almost perfect in length for me and you may need to play it twice to unlock all achievements, I missed one small key so I'll probably blow back through it again.

I did not play the original one all the way through, only the very beginning, but I will definitely pick it up when I feel like.

Do not get attached to any of the characters. Save at every opportunity. Do not expect too much from the plot, but enjoy the banter. Surprises await.
