First off just let me tell you that this game was bought out by another developer who has completely abandoned this project. So all the problems you find during the gameplay that you go to the forums to complain about are going to fall on deaf ears. The next episode is never coming out, so stop asking about it. Only way this game will get any support is if the fans become interested in fixing it with their own made mods or something.
Now as to the actual gameplay, oh, the gameplay on this game. For one hard mode doesn't really do anything except for enhance the most annoying parts of the game. It's like "Wow, it's kinda annoying that it keeps teleporting me to a random location arbitrarily when I'm trying to get somewhere and there is nothing I can do to stop it." Then they came in and said "Know how we can make this harder? Just teleport them halfway across the map every five seconds!"
Seriously, it will teleport you halfway across the map JUST as soon as you were FINALLY going to make it to the location you wanted to get to. Which isn't so bad if there was anything you could do about it. I could understand if they punished you when you did the wrong thing by teleporting you but it just does it on a whim which really takes away from the immersion. In horror you're suppose to be ducking around corners, trying to find your way around while always being wary of enemies that can kill you. With the teleport system you have to ignore all that and gun it straight to the next location ignoring any kind of atmosphere to even make any progress.
You get a flashlight but the thing is useless the entire game. Not to say it's not dark in this game, more so that it's very dark and the flashlight does jack-♥♥♥♥ to help you in any way. The 'Slender' character shows up every so often and all you do is just turn around and walk away until he disappears, yeah, so scary. He can invade you during cutscenes though so you can come out of a cutscene and just be dead cause, whoop, there he is. The game does a very bad job of even telling you where to go also, like, you pretty much wander around until something happens.
Yeah, this game is horrible and it's not getting any better... 1/5.
