Summary

Fun & Creepy!

The Good

The game play was well realized- an adventure game with a playable combat system is rare. The combat itself, using a camera against ghosts, was an interesting new approach. The story was creepy and I got chills throughout. The house was vast but easy to navigate and the use of light and shadow was superb.

The Bad

It needed more in game music!!! Still, what it did have was enjoyable and atmospheric. Also the game's graphics really show their age at some points. I didn't care for the voice acting much either.

The Bottom Line

A must for fans of games like Alone in the Dark. Can't wait for FF2 and 3!
