Alone In The Dark: Inferno – do we… care?
Yes, the publisher has responded to criticisms of the original game, but that still doesn’t mean I’m anywhere near excited about Eden Studios and Atari’s Alone In The Dark: Inferno. The fact that the press release boasts about “red-hot content” and “sizzling gaming enhancements” actually fills me with dread. At one point, I was kind of excited about Alone In The Dark, but then I played the demo on the 360. The clumsy camera, annoying inventory and horrible cut-scenes immediately diminished my interest; while I’m not convinced Inferno will change any of that, it is at least heartening to see a publisher take the comments of gamers at face value.
