Hows alone in the dark? and wasnt there just a patch that fixed a bunch of problems...
Alone in the Dark is decent. The ambitions of the developers and their desire to do something different really shows, but there are a lot of technical issues (mostly control issues) that mar the experience.
That said, I thought the story was decent. The puzzles were interesting and for the most part really work. And some of the ideas are really cool, even if the execution is a little off.
I played the 360 version, and I didn't think it was all that broken. If you're into achievements, it's a pretty easy 1000 if you're willing to sink an extra 3-4 hours into it.
One piece of advice: you will find that flaming bullets are an invaluable part of your arsenal. But, you DON'T have to make them each time you reload. Simply make some flaming bullets, and then hotmap them to one of your quick-select spaces, and then any time you equip the gun, it will have flaming bullets as long as you have a flammable liquid in your inventory. No FAQ I ever found pointed out this quick solution, so I offer it here.
