A true Lovecraft feeling.
I started playing this game about one week ago, and all I can say is that I can't get my hands of this true master-piece. Why do I call it a master-piece? That is very simple. If you have read Lovecraft, you know that while you read, you feel in certain way. Of course, the game makes you feel the same, and if I dare say, even more. It is a FPS(first person shooter)-horror-adventure. It combines these genres perfectly, because being a FPS you feel "in the skin" of the character (detective Jack Walters), so the feeling is much more intense, unlike the third person games, where you are not affected directly because you can see the character, so the relationship between you and your "puppet" is a little distant. So, the first-person view increases the horror feeling and not only. Another interesting aspect is the fact that when you are hurt, you don't just use a med-pack. No...here, for each type of wound, you have a special type of medicine. This is a first-time, because, until now, you used a med-kit, and you were at 100% again. A little inconvenient is the fact that you can't run. The graphics is special, and even it doesn't look like the latest games, it is decent, and I can say that this type of graphics fits perfectly with the game. One advice: PLAY it, because it is unique, a true Lovecraftian experience.
