Alone In the Dark drags series protagonist Edward Carrnby through another supernatural nightmare. The production values are surprisingly high, with ambient level design, terrific sound and lots of "gotcha" moments to make the hair stand up on your neck. However, Alone In the Dark controls too stiffly, resulting in an abundance of cheap deaths. In addition, the item interface is clumsy, the third-person camera angles work against you and the driving sequence borderlines on unplayable. It's still better than Uwe Boll's train wreck movie, but the punishment it dishes will probably make you wish you had left it "alone" to begin with.
