Summary

One of the most under-looked games of all time.

The Good

Almost everything. The story is fantastic, the atmosphere is scary, the villain is one of the best in gaming, the sound sets the mood perfectly, and even though they don't hold up today, the graphics looked good in 1997. Gameplay is point and click, but it's a solid fit for a horror/adventure game like this.

The Bad

The voice acting and the text-heavy sections. Somewhat slows down the game and boars me to tears.

The Bottom Line

Clock Tower is a rock-solid survival horror adventure that takes elements from slasher movies and old point and click games. Everything about the game but the dialogue heavy sequences and the poorly translated voice acting are amazing. A must have for adventure and survival horror fans.
