Anyone else played this?
Graphics are dated but immersion is great, can't remember when i played game where being injured had influence on move speed, vision and accuracy.
Played back in 2007 and a few times after that.
It's a fine horror action game and the only one purely based on Lovecraft.
Some people on /v/ have mixed opinions because they enjoyed the sneaking survival aspect more than the action shooting that follows for the second part of the game. Whatever the case the game starts out really good so you should at least play until the shooting becomes the focus.
If you're playing the game on hardware that came after 2006 you'll experience a game breaking bug at one point.
Someone should post the image telling the story of how the devs got fucked in the ass with the power of a thousand suns by Bethesda. I don't have it saved but it's probably the scummiest thing you'll ever hear in gaming.
It's the best Lovecraft inspired game in existence. Which isn't saying much. Sadly the devs died before making more games. And they did have planned more.
>the action shooting that follows for the second part of the game.
That stuff didn't ruin the game for me, but it really did take me out of the Lovecraft atmosphere. One minute I'm investigating some spooky cult shit and the next minute I'm flanking a machine gun nest.
I don't even want to think about that shit.
Oh whoops, wrong image but I still want to post it and I just remember that I dont have it anymore, friend of mine pushed a format on my disk.
I seem to remember the tale of a game much bigger than it should have been and the exclusivity to XBOX fucked them over.
The game was great for the first part but I quit playing when I got to the locking doors part. Its unplayable for that section. I would like to see how the game plays out later on but I can't get past that bullshit part.
It was a pretty fun single player shooter.
There were a lot of bugs though.
Two particularly annoying ones were-
>In the part where you're on a boat and have to fire at these pillars of light on the shore, the pillars simply do not appear.
>During the escape section at the end, my character wasn't moving quickly enough to make it out before the place collapsed
Apparently these were two pretty well-known issues and I had to do annoying workarounds just to finish the game.
Weirdest glitch I got
>be in house near end of game
>sneaking around avoiding enemies
>get spotted, run behind table upstairs
>get stuck for some reason
>knife around randomly
>crouch and knife at same time
>suddenly teleported outside the map with clear view of everything
>stuck there until MASSIVE SANITY FAILURE
