The Padre Review
The Padre is a voxel-style take on horror with callbacks to various elements from the golden age of survival horror games. Anyone growing up with games like Resident Evil or Silent Hill will feel right at home with The Padre as it attempts to emulate fixed camera angles and blocky visuals of the past.
I didn’t have fun with Viviette. The puzzles lacked any logical answers, and there was little motivation to explore. The story lacked emphatic moments and failed to entice me to struggle through the rough points. There was an effective crafting of terror, but no pay off with that lone success either.
Rise of Insanity Review
There is no shortage of indie, first person, low budget horror titles available on Steam. It’s tough for a game to come into this environment and find a way to stand out from its peers. Rise of Insanity manages to do just that though, thanks to some clever story twists and the handful of new ideas that it brings to the table
The Town of Light Review
Unfortunately, its steadily-worsening gameplay ultimately obscures the impact and importance of this tale, rendering even one playthrough far from worth it. I will grant that it made me want to read about 20th-century mental asylums on my own time, but I suppose that says it all; just read about these asylums and you'll spare yourself a lot of pain.
In the end it all comes down to what kind of a game you are willing to play. If you want a straight up horror game, 2Dark probably isn't the game you are looking for. If however, you want a fun point-and-click adventure game with grain of tension, I believe you will find 2Dark appealing.
Slayaway Camp Review
While it would’ve been nice to see some additional kills and hear some additional lines of dialogue from the narrator, it still works for what it is. Slayaway Camp is one of the best homages to classic slasher films and should be an easy buy for any horror buff looking to pass the time.
Don't Chat with Strangers Review
While the idea of a vengeful ghost terrorizing you through a computer chat window is an intriguing one, the game fails to deliver on that premise in any way that would make it a satisfying game. It is a poorly designed experience – one that you are better off seeing in a youtube video for free instead of paying five dollars for.
The Evil Within
The Evil Within is a game that the survival horror genre desperately needed. Recent horror games have seem to forgotten simple mechanics that makes the genre so unique. The Evil Within is the perfect example of the old cliche "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks does just that. Even with a plot that never meets its potential, the beautifully designed enemies, superb gameplay and terrifying environments all come together to give horror fans a fascinating, memorable experience.
