Summary

An excellent game with superb pacing.

The Good

Eternal Darkness is rather similar to Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil, but avoids the "dull bits" present in those games with meticulous attention to pacing and advancement.

The Bad

Early choices have far-reaching implications, which are lost on people who play through only one time. Also, the save game file is much larger than it needs to be, which is a bother.

The Bottom Line

It's Resident Evil for people who didn't like Resident Evil.
