This game is incredible. Tension, horror and locations are all distinct and excellent. The cutscenes however are noticeably cheesy which ruins a lot of the tone. Some outdated design choices.70zach_grech
This game was one of the first genuine horror games that scared me as a child.60MittensJa
E ingiocabile controlli e telecamera fissa sono orrendi almeno la musica e decente.0Rzno157
