Now what is it that you are mainly looking for when playing a survival horror game? Is it decapitating monsters, zombies, telemarketers? If so, then RoR will disappoint. Actually, due to its limited fighting, this survival horror game could be considered ideal for adventure gamers, but unfortunately it also lacks in puzzles, which are almost non-existent, other than Brown sniffing out stuff. The girl-dog idea is indeed an excellent idea, but in this case the scales were tipped heavily towards using the dog’s nose, which made the game very unbalanced. But if what you’re after is a good twisted mystery and a game that will creep you out, in deeper ways and beyond “boo, I jumped out of the closet”, then you should consider checking-out RoR. See it from the point of view of the story and you will certainly be rewarded.
