Often eclipsed by the ultimately more successful Resident Evil games, it was actually Alone in the Dark that kickstarted the whole survival horror genre when the first game in the series was released for the PC back more than 15 years ago. Several...

Horrific, but not in the right way. A great concept buried in a mire of mediocrity. Alone in the Dark invented the survival horror genre back in 1992, and this remake tries to tap into the mix of great gameplay and terrifying action that made the...

High-quality PC horror games have been thin on the ground of late. Sadly, while Alone in the Darks fright-fest is often highly cinematic and at times genuinely terrifying, it possesses far too many irritating shortfalls to be considered an...

Although some games are desperate to please and entertain, Alone in the Dark is determined to aggravate. For every wondrous innovation or thrilling sequence, there is another that is baffling, frustrating or just poorly designed. Considering 1992s...

Alone in the Dark har ikke noget tal tilføjet titlen, men det er faktisk femmeren i en serie af gyserspil, der efterhånden har 16 år på bagen.Spillet foregår i Central Park i New York, der vist aldrig før har virket så...

International Review By Digitale-Generation on 82

Alone in the Dark ist trotz einiger Mankos bei Steuerung und Synchronisation seinen Wurzeln treu geblieben und ein geradezu faszinierendes Horroradventure. Das Einsetzen und Kombinieren der Gegenstände ist innovativ und sollte auch bei anderen...

Große war der Hype um das Spiel und genauso groß war auch unsere Enttäuschung über dieses halbgare Action-Adventure.So viele gute Ideen und Ansätze findet man im fünften Teil von Alone in the Dark, doch leider werden diese...

International Review By Subdogs on 60

1992 släpptes det första Alone in the dark och spelet bröt ny mark på flera sätt, bland annat genom att ha 3D-grafik i ett skräckspel. Alone in the dark 2 och 3 fortsatte på samma spår men sedan somnade serien av en tid. Ett fjärde spel kom 2001 men...
