This game has some truly frustrating moments, such as an almost pitch black maze which I needed a walkthrough to solve. YEt, at the same time, it also has some really interesting ideas. Items can be examined in detail, for example, and discussed with your partner. The horror is also drawn mainly from atmosphere, rather than jump scares. And the story is long, complicated, interesting and doesn't talk down to you. The interface too is surprisingly effective and fun.

Don't get me wrong; the AI is hokey, the FMVs are often bizarre and the level design is atrocious at times. You may well need a walkthrough to finish certain elements - or just to understand how some new items or weapons work - but there are some good ideas in here which make ROTH worth a look for those with enough patience.

There's something very alluring and charming about this game. It is the seamless blend of horror, point-and-click, and FPS. The gameplay itself is fairly standard — proceed throughout the corridors, shoot, solve puzzles, and generally explore the wonderful environments to further the story. And, this story is very engrossing in its overall simplicity but also its complexity, which somehow both describe it flawlessly despite them being antonyms.

As I played the game, I was mesmerized by the scenery and tone. The atmosphere is excellent, surprisingly being genuinely chilling and sometimes downright frightening despite its obvious age. The FMV, acting, and overall work gone into this game to polish it truly does shine through. It excels exceedingly well in all fields, again, especially considering the given time it was released. As you proceed throughout the game, you'll be met with breathtaking sights and atmosphere, frequently caught in a momentary disbelief that this game is indeed made in 1996.

My gripes would be that it is a bit old-timey in its overall design, but I feel it hasn't aged too poorly. As I mentioned, I believe it is simple, yet creative. It manages to be extremely effective despite age as its enemy.

Overall, it is a hidden gem that was missed out in the time it was created, but now it has a chance in the spotlight of the present. It was ahead of its time in every way, yet it was extremely successful in doing so. If you're willing to step into a time machine, be prepared for a great time.

From 1996, a notable experiment mixing fps, graphical adventure and survival horror elements.

Pros:

- beautiful environments
- evocative atmosphere
- live actors videos are AMAZING lol
- general game experience is ok and funny

Cons:
- sometimes repetitive
- difficult controls
- bots are graphically limited and way too much stupid (i.e.: if you exit a room they don't follow you and start to move around randomly lol)
- a couple of absurd enigmas and pixel hunting

...superPro: the game is old, with very old mechanics... but in the end it aged well like good wine, and it can give a pleasant experience if you want to remember retrogaming sensations.

I had it as a gift, so i recommend it, expecially with a good sale.
7/10

By accident I felt on the review on the internet after having watched the steam store page about this game.
The review said that purists of point and click and fps at the time criticized the mix they tried in Realms of the Haunting.
But with Elder Scrolls: Daggerfall, Realms of the Haunting was considered as one of the most vast game of its time!


But it's a real gem. I've played for few minutes and I really enjoyed this game.


Videos are very nice if you notice the quality of FMV (Full Motion Video). There is nearly no difference between the actors and the game. The music doesn't annoy. The graphics are correct. Environments are nice (apparently you can access different dimensions which radically changes the atmosphere), I only regret the lack of detail of monsters. Story is interesting and the interactions with the game are numerous because this is a point & click (your character has always something to say about anything he encounters... like in a real point & click).

Controls: thanks to Arucard who gave us the hint on the Steam forum, there is a list of all the keys of the game and a way to change theses. Be ware there are some game tips spoilers at the end: http://www.gog.com/forum/realms_of_the_haunting/tips_for_beginners/page1

Controls were the only bad aspect of the game before I’ve found this link!


Actually I’m really happy to have found this game.
Because it didn't receive the success it deserved... and it's time to change that! ^^

A better review than mine: http://www.allgame.com/game.php?id=5987&tab=review

And some info: Gremlin created on Nintendo 64 the game "Body Harvest". Released before GTA III and considered as a true GTA like. Quite original (you travel in 4 different times) and one of the most underrated game of the history.
Realms of the Haunting even surprises you at the downloading, its file weights 1.4 go. For its time (1996) it was amazing. Another clue of the huge amount of content this game has.
