an absolutely lovely, solid game. The setup reminds me of what TimeSplitters did with the FPS genre (where it takes place in a bunch of different settings with a bunch of different characters) except for a survival horror game and with a much better, logical story line to tie the different settings and characters together. I didn't find the game too scary compared to the more well known titles, but then again I kept my sanity meter high because I always found insanity very unnerving. I found the story to be epic and awe inspiring, with its historical and ancient backdrop, and just as unique, smooth, and logical as the game play. Hell the strategy is so deep that when my opponent would cast long spells I found myself choosing shorter spells so I could cast mine before his. The aesthetics were also just beautiful, from the old French cathedrals to the Mesopotamian architecture of the Forbidden City.
Eternal Darkness is an all around solid game that should go down as a classic, both as a piece of art and interactive art.
