Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth – Review

Despite the minor nitpicks, this is a great game that has sleeper hit written all over it. The guys at Headfirst Productions certainly did their homework and researched the material before making the game. The end result of their labor is a rock-solid videogame that almost perfectly captures the dread, majesty, and sheer abject terror of Lovecraft's world.

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

Game Description: Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is a spine-chilling story with classic survival/horror gameplay, where you face evil that seems impossible to stop. Set in the 1920s, you'll be thrown headfirst into the world of H.P. Lovecraft's famous Cthulu mythology. The storyline brings to life all the unthinkable evils, psychic possessions, and mythical worlds it pioneered. Draw upon your skills in exploration, investigation, and combat while battling evil incarnate.

Obscure

Game Description: Obscure takes the survival-horror gaming you love and sets it in a teenage horror film. Tortured screams echo through Leafmore High's deserted corridors. Faceless creatures lurk in the shadows. Five teenagers set out to bring light into the darkness - and experience a night that will scar their souls forever.

Obscure – Review

As a fan of horror films (the intelligent kind, not those that just equate enormity with buckets of tomato-sauce gore) I am often let down by the lack of decent videogames that are actually scary. It seems, the survival horror ilk in particular are not that frightening, usually because they overload the game with slow moving zombies that pose no real threat to a player.

Doom 3 – Second Opinion

It's the exponential progression of these things that bothers me most. Ever since the original Doom, the majority of First Person Shooters (FPS) have followed an incredibly strict formula: The hero begins the game with a ridiculously underpowered weapon, and is besieged by an army of enemies that can be just barely killed by that first weapon (it's challenging enough that each enemy put down feels like something of an accomplishment).

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth – Second Opinion

More than anything else, Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth truly captures the dark, oppressive and even hopeless feel that many of Lovecraft's stories have in common. Walking through the town of Innsmouth in Jack Walters's shoes was exactly the way I had imagined it to be when I first read the source material, and as Mike says, the attention to detail and small touches of realism help embellish the experience and make it a (mostly) believable, immersive adventure.
