    Rearing its ghastly head on GCN, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem delivers a spine-tingling adventure intended for mature audiences and brave souls.

    This horror epic spans generations, and players must relive the blood-soaked history while conjuring spells, solving puzzles and slaying supernatural beasts. Whether you're creeping around as the Roman Centurion, Cambodian villager or any of the other characters, the psychological thriller will challenge you since the game isn't all blood and guts -- it's got brains, too.

    Eternal Darkness is a psychological thriller with an engrossing storyline that spans across 2000 years of human history and promises to take players to the brink of insanity and beyond. The darkness comes this Halloween, exclusively to Nintendo Gamecube.

    The darkness begins as Alexandra Roivas finds that her Grandfather has been brutally murdered inside his dark mansion. Alex learns that the local Police are unable or unwilling to help. With no one left to turn to, Alex explores her Grandfathers Mansion for clues. She stumbles across the Tome of Eternal Darkness, a mystical book that tells the tale of a dark force that wreaks a terrible evil on all of humanity. Alex learns to see past the veil of our reality, to see those that dwell in the darkness. Either by fate or misfortune the entire Roivas family's bloodline has been drawn into an epic battle waged across two millennia, against an evil older than time itself which threatens our very existence. With humanities hopes hanging on a thread, Alex must forge on and fight the darkness, but in order to find the terrifying truth there is a great burden she must bear...

    With superb graphics, movie quality voice acting, and an incredible storyline, Eternal Darkness thrusts players into an adventure that crosses time, reality, and the realms of insanity. Controlling 12 different characters throughout history, players will battle hordes of Zombies, cast powerful spells, fight to keep their sanity, and maybe even make the ultimate sacrifice. The Darkness comes...
