Summary

It's just like Resident Evil!

The Good

You can play Alone In The Dark as two characters: our hero Edward Carnby or the newcomer Aline Cedrac, an anthropologist, who looks oddly and much to Jill Valentine from the Resident Evil series. The stages are well designed. The song is creepy (in a good way).

The Bad

The changes of cameras out of time not allow you to see where the enemy is. The save system is a little annoying. And most of the times you don't know what to do. Basically if you do not like games like Resident Evil, I mean like Alone In The Dark better to pass away.

The Bottom Line

The game with Edward Carnby is a little more difficult, but relatively shorter. Carnby is the player who will spend most of the game looking for keys and killing monsters in tedious combats. With Aline you will need a lot of patience to solve the numerous puzzles, which is great if you like that kind of stuff.
