Yomawari: Midnight Shadows Review
If you enjoy survival horror games which rely on atmospheric and subtle visuals and audio cues instead of cheap jump-scares, you will definitely love Yomawari: Midnight Shadows. It's an extremely creative game with an adorable outlook and incredibly dark undertones.
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.
Uncanny Valley Review
It's a crying shame that Uncanny Valley spends so much of its time crippling your play time with contrivances and strict time limits. Once you learn how to make progress, you'll enjoy a second half akin to what the entire game should have been, but then its endings get less memorable. Uncanny Valley wants to be an engaging survival horror romp, and sometimes it gets to be, but it's ultimately an experience that can be best described as mediocre.
Layers of Fear
So if you want a horror game that is actually, you know... scary, then look no further. I cringed every time I looked over my shoulder, I broke out in a cold sweat two or three times, I felt just as unhinged as the protagonist, dreaded approaching every flickering light, and I loved every minute of it.
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.
