Also known as: Mortifilia Platforms: PS2, Xbox, PC Release Date: 2004-10-01 Regions: USA Europe Chris’s Rating: ★★★☆ A rather by-the-numbers horror game that benefits greatly from its unique two-player mode. Obscure is a pretty apt title for this game, because it certainly passed under the radar of much of the gaming public. Developed by a […]
Also known as: Silent Hill 4: The Room Platforms: PS2, Xbox, PC Release Date: 2004-09-07 Regions: USA Japan Europe Chris’s Rating: ★★☆☆ It looks like a Silent Hill game, and it sounds like a Silent Hill game, and it plays like a Silent Hill game, but somehow Silent Hill 4 feels less like a sequel […]

Echo Night: Beyond is the third Echo Night game in the […]
Platforms: PS2 Release Date: 2004-03-16 Regions: USA Europe Chris’s Rating: ☆☆☆☆ A textbook example of what you get when you treat game design as a list of features taken from other popular games (hint: it’s not good). X-Files: Resist or Serve is sort of a mess. I can see the feature list on some producer’s […]

Platforms: PS2, Xbox, PC Release Date: 2004-03-08 Regions: USA Europe Chris’s Rating: ★★★☆ Action-centric horror done right; The Suffering is an excellent American response to the Japanese genre heavyweights. The Suffering is very much an American response to the Japanese horror formula. The game has clearly been influenced by the likes of Devil May Cry […]
