Summary

Real horror, great story, with many endings

The Good

Almost everything. Graphs are nice, specially on cutscenes (which are almost same as graphics in game).

Game`s plot is very good and there are many sad scenes which can even make you cry. It´s also very long, but it isn´t that it would be too hard, it just rocks. Monsters are very scary, they (still) looks like cool, specially bosses, like pyramid heads.

There are separate levels: action and riddle level, so if you like e.g get more challenge to shoot monsters, but don´t want to solve stupid puzzles so much, you can set action level to hard and riddle level to easy.

5 endings are really cool, my favorite is Rebirth. You can get that ending only on replay game. In PC version, Director`s Cut, you have sixth ending, called UFO, it also rocks very much.

The Bad

Sometimes, you can get stuck pretty badly, but usually you can find answer with Google. Also, some graphs has problems, even if they`re cool, you can see some cracks on textures.

The Bottom Line

Horror game from top
