Today I received my limited-edition copy of Alone In The Dark for the Xbox 360. I’ve been looking forward to it for a little while, and my appetite had been whetted by the tech demo videos available on the Xbox Marketplace. So, what’s it like?
The control system is clunky, the audio has glitches, there’s some bad texture pop-in, and the driving sequence… Let’s just say I’ve made good use of the skip-ahead feature of the “DVD Menu” system.
Whether the game improves now I’ve actually entered Central Park remains to be seen. I’m still hopeful, but the initial sections of the game have certainly taken the shine off my enthusiasm.
