BBFC Rates And Briefly Describes Alone In The Dark

Sometimes, you can find some very interesting game details and descriptions if you look at the ratings boards around the world. And thanks to the British Board of Film Classification's recent rating for Alone in the Dark, we now have some interesting quotes.

The survival/horror game received the "15" rating from the BBFC, which means the publisher doesn't need to pull a Take-Two and return to the editing room. The UK rating board mentions "frequent use of strong language" and "plenty of violence," but there is a silver lining for parents. According to their analysis, the BBFC says the game "doesn't dwell on the infliction of pain or injury" and all that violence is "mitigated by the fantasy context." (source- Joystiq) We also hear plenty about a variety of available weapons (flamethrowers leaped off the page at us), and as for the baddies that will be assaulting as during our jaunt through Central Park... Well, we should be aware of "moments of horror, with some of the supernatural beasts that attack the protagonist arriving in fairly unexpected - and shocking - fashion."

This certainly sounds like a typical survival/horror title, doesn't it? We just hope that Atari is going to deliver an appropriately frightening and entertaining game with sold gameplay, because Alone in the Dark is plenty promising.
