I am fully convinced that Rockstar paid off IGN, and every other game reviewer that gave this frustrating angry bee’s nest a perfect score. It is not 10 worthy. Not even close.

Yes there is a lot of attention paid to detail. The voice acting is good and yes the story is very um… long. None of that changes the fact that the game’s controls are infuriating and that the majority of the missions are basically repetitive.

I’m on what I am assuming is the last mission right now and just trying to lock onto someone that I’m actually aiming at is like trying shove a glass of water through 400 pound opera singer. It’s frustratingly impossible and smelly. Up to this point I’ve played the same mission at least 3o times. Chase this car, kill this guy, go on a date etc etc etc… This game reminds me of Spider-man 2. It’s a ton of fun to wander the city and the level of detail is impressive but that doesn’t stop the missions from getting boring.

I think I’d have given this game an 8.5. If you ask me Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is a heck of a lot more fun and the story’s 10 times better.

Does anyone else out there miss Alone in the Dark 2?  I remember staying up all night playing that game with my cousins.  Back then that game used to scare the pants off us! (good thing uncle Henry wasn’t around…yeesh.)

I may be the only one (and I’d be proud to be) who wishes infogrames would re-release this game.  Either as a remake or a just a simple re-release.  I’d love to play the original again frankly.  And if I could download and play it on my PS3 it’d be amazing because then they might be able to re-tool the controls so they aren’t so awkward (running into walls in 20 second bursts by accident was always the low point of the game…)

Please infogrames!  In the interest of myself and all other original DOS AitD fans give us the original alone in the dark games back!!!
