Pretty good game if you like the FpsSurvivalHorror (Amnesia/penumbra) type genre. The game kinda falls apart near the end since the developer went under mid development, but it actually manages to still make it worth slugging through the publisher/dev mess to see some of the most frightening moments in any video game to date.
To get more in depth, as previously stated this game is legitimately scary and that is honestly something that is hard to achieve in a video game. There is one specific instance where you are frantically trying to escape and barricade the path behind you as you flee from the Gilman Hotel. This specific moment is a recreation of an exact event from the short story "The Shadow Over Insmouth" by HP lovecraft. The game is set in his universe and most of it takes place in the town of that story Innsmouth, a New England port town. If you are looking for a shooter or a Triple A game look elsewhere now. This game really excels in the first few hours before you obtain a weapon to defend yourself. Jack(you) struggles to find out what is going on in this very desolate port town, talking to some of the more sane residents etc. Now I am no game historian but its possible this game may have had the first sanity meter (mechanic now used in Amnesia for example). Either way the first thing you will notice when you launch this game up is the lack of a hud, everything is dealt with in a debatably more engaging way. Your character starts to visibly freak out if you stare at a rotting corpse, the screen might start turning a shade of grey if you are bleeding out. All of these work to immerse the player into the game's world.
The gameplay is a combination of puzzles and action, I cant really say the puzzles stand out but I mean they didn't in Amnesia either and people love that game to death. The gun play on the other hand is pretty awful, the hit registration feels very floaty sort of similar to the first metro 2033. The enemies die in a seemingly random number of bullets also registered hits feel sloppy and like there is weight behind them. While a person looking at this game is probably not interested in how good the gun play is, I have to warn you the second half of the game really does force it upon you. On the topic of sloppiness, this game is buggy as all hell. It was to my knowledge finished in some devs basement after the studio went under. Bethesda did end up publishing it, although they didn't really update it after launch.
The town you explore around, the frantic set piece moments and the hp lovecraft world make this game from disaster into a buggy gem that deserves way more recognition that it ever got. Oddly enough PC Gamer did manage to sneak it onto their top 100 PC games of all time list at #87, so maybe people wont forget this game after all.
To wrap this up. If you are a fan of the first person perspective horror game genre, HP lovecraft or you like a gamble pick this game up. For others you might want to watch some gameplay videos and judge for your self.
