Alone in the Dark 5 (PC)

Alone in the Dark is the fifth installment of the survival horror video game series under the same name created by Infogrames/Atari and is a reboot of the series developed by Eden Games. It was originally released on the Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, Wii and PlayStation 2 in June of 2008, and a PlayStation 3 version (subtitled Inferno) was released in 2009. This page will only focus on the Xbox 360, Windows, Wii and PS2 versions.

Why it sucks

  1. Bad and convoluted plot.
  2. Cheesy dialogue, especially from protagonist Edward Carnby. (Eg, "I don't have your stone! And fuck you anyway!")
  3. The item combination mechanic is very confusing and frustrating (items have to be combined in a very specific order).
  4. Several bugs and glitches, especially in inferior ports such as the PS2.
  5. The car driving sequences are terrible.
  6. Poor collision detection and physics.
  7. Switching from first to third person perspectives becomes tedious and tiresome.
  8. Boring and repetitive combat.
  9. Very limited and restricted item storage.
  10. Some puzzles feel uninspired and "boggy".
  11. Melee combat can only be handled in third-person, while weapons can only be used in first-person.
