Alone In The Dark PS3 "Enhanced"
Sadly, Alone in the Dark for the PS2 was one of the worst games of the year in our estimation, but critical feedback on the Xbox 360 version wasn't quite as bad. Therefore, even though we're not holding our breaths, our ears perk up at the announcement of an "enhanced" version coming to the PlayStation 3 in November.
Atari was forced to delay the PS3 version quite some time ago, but after sampling the awfulness that was the PS2 version, we suddenly didn't care so much. But according to PlayStation Direct, Eden is preparing the best version yet for owners of Sony's next-gen console; it will boast "a number of gameplay enhancements" along with fixes for annoying little bugs that popped up in the Xbox 360 version. The title will come to the Leipzig Games Convention in a few weeks time where it should be playable for all those in attendance. Obviously, this game better be nothing like the PS2 version; otherwise, we can't issue a purchase - or even a rental - recommendation. But given enough time, developers can indeed make games better...it's just a matter of motivation and talent.
The only other obstacle centers on the timing. By the time Alone in the Dark PS3 rolls around in November, there just might be a few other titles out there that will grab your attention.
