78% – IGN

“The graphics are dripping with dark Victorian depravity. The environments look and feel old and worn and gloomy.”
73% – GameZone

“It's worthy of a spot in your collection beside Resident Evil and Silent Hill and should provide several good evenings of fright.”

Has fixed camera angles like in the first batch of RE games.
Always loved that in horror games; makes the player anxious and uneasy as they have no way of knowing whats around corners or in the rooms they just entered.

Game's a little dated but still holds up well interms of the story and atmosphere. (compared to most horror titles now, the enemies seem a bit goofy and unthreatening, but the soundeffects they make are enough to still get your heartrate up, especially when you hear them coming but dont know where from)

Overall enjoyment: 8/10
Especially when you get it for a buck like I did.
(recommed Hard Difficulty on first playthrough)

A fun but cheesy survival horror reminiscent of Eternal Darkness for GC, or Obscure. Graphics are a little rough and the controls suck... but the atmosphere is great, and that is what counts with these types of games.

Regarding compatability issues, Im on windows 7 with and AMD card and a i5 processor and had no issues what so ever, other than an arm stretching glitch in one room, which was just silly to me. Nothing game breaking.
