Surviving high school was never as horrific as this.

The Good

ObsCure is very similar to games such as Resident Evil, but evidently spoofs the cult 1997 film, The Faculty as well.

Playing the game with a friend is the most enjoyable and intriguing part of Hydravision's sleeper hit ObsCure. It's not something that comes around very often in this day and age. Although the co-op features made it to Resident Evil: Outbreak, that game had no offline co-op modes.

The story in ObsCure isn't really anything new, but for what it is, it makes for a great experience, adding flavour to the game. I really liked the gameplay, and I am very pleased to hear that ObsCure II is coming out very soon.

The Bad

The fixed camera was horrendous. It should've had some team-based puzzles, but I only recall one very straight-forward puzzle involving a compass and a map.

The Bottom Line

ObsCure is a very fitting title...
