SummaryAlmost the first, and STILL one of the best...
The GoodNot the first third-person survival horror game -- Alone In The Dark beat it to the screen by a few years -- but certainly the best known, most successful, and most POWERFUL example of the genre. I've been playing this game for the better part of ten years, and it STILL has the power to scare the bejabbers out of me. A textbook example of what a scary entertainment experience (movie, videogame, or otherwise) should incorporate. Also made a point of incorporating multiple endings, based on YOUR actions along the way... a neat way of pumping up that replay value...
The BadThere's not much NOT to like, if you're a fan of third-person action games and/or survival horror. The graphics are a bit dated by today's standards, and since it's a Playstation port, there are some minor control issues -- it plays best with a gamepad.
