Alone In The Dark

I've just heard a radio review of the game, and the news isn't good. Poor game-play, bad plot, slow graphics (even on a quad core)

Guess I'll wait and see what others think.

You know me - the eternal optimist.
Going to try my game pad to see if it makes it any easier.If i can find it in my boys bedroom(FIFA mad)
Perhaps a scout around for a patch or fix so that you can use mouse direction control as in resi evil 4.
I'll never admit defeat...never i tell you.

Sounds wonderful :)) glad I didn't buy it!! Try honing your flying skills in Flight Sim!

Nothing else around worth getting at the moment.

Just started Alone in the dark,due to nothing else to play.
Great graphics...Err...that's it.
Awful clunky,stiff controls with robotic animation akin to resi evil 1.
Terrible camera angles(very frustrating)
Combat is very frustrating due to the poor control of the lead character.
A few bugs,such as no character voice sound in cut scenes although the other sounds are there.
Still,nothing else to play.)O:!

Trouble is.....The reviewer said he wasn't scared once :( I'm going to give it miss, but hope you are not disappointed in it.

Half way through Turok and have come to a stop.
Rather average at best.A bit boring to be honest.
Oh what a games void we are in.

Glad you didn't get Alone in the dark because of me drawing attention to it.We might have fallen out.(O:!
Still might get it though, despite the reviews as it's my favourite genre.I like scary.
Mass effect has had rave reviews and i can't get into it at all.Still,each to his own.

Vista with 3GB in dual channel mode. I tried everything but couldn't get on with the game. Will wait for the next version. Hopefully they will rewrite the game engine.

Should run fine. Crank the graphics settings up (I know it makes no sense but it works for some) Also certain programmes will slow it to a crawl (PC Tools Spyware doctor is one)

Also some antivirus programmes can cause problems too.

How much memory do you have?

Yep I tried it with all the updates and tweaks. Runs rubbish compared to FS9. This is on a dual core 4400+ with 7900GTX gfx card.

Have you installed the 2 service packs? Runs fine on my Vista machines.

Should sort things out. If you are having specific problems start a new thread here, I know the software pretty well.

They can't even get Flight Sim X right. The state of PC games at the moment is shocking!
