Eden Turning Up The Heat With Alone In The Dark: Inferno

When we heard Alone in the Dark was delayed on the PlayStation 3, we were sorely disappointed. But then, we played the PS2 version (and the 360 version, although we of course didn't review it), and weren't so disappointed anymore. However, Eden Studios has sworn that PS3 owners will get a very different animal when their version arrives later this fall, and they're standing by that vow.

Apparently, the game is now called Alone in the Dark: Inferno; they figured they needed to change the name due to all the drastic enhancements and improvements. According to the press release - found over at UK site, TheElectronicTheatre - the reworked title will feature "sizzling gameplay enhancements, red-hot content and the hellish storyline," all of which has clearly inspired the Inferno part. They say that the "camera, inventory system and control system" have all been entirely revamped "for maximum immersion." As we scrolled down through the list of improvements, we have to say, we're actually thinking Eden could've fixed the serious problems: we get full 360-degree camera control now, the controls have been "fine-tuned," there are more on-screen tips (needed those), and there's even a new action sequence included in the story. Obviously, this isn't the game 360 owners got earlier this year, and that's a good thing.

If you want to check out the fully detailed list for yourself, feel free to do so. Even though you've probably got about a hundred other games you want to try, we have to remind you that the concept behind Alone in the Dark was solid. It's just that the implementation was crucially flawed...if they've really overhauled the entire gameplay foundation in Alone in the Dark: Inferno, then we could have a definite survival/horror winner on our hands.

Hmm, the first game was pretty good on PS1. If a million amazing games weren't coming out for the holidays I would more than likely buy it. Gotta rent this one though. Hopefully the "adjustments" work out.

Though you haveto look at the competition:
Silent Hill 5
Bioshock
Dead Space
Resident Evil 5

It doesnt look like a hopeful time for its release, does it.

Haven't played this game since N64, does that full 360 degree camera mean this game has crossed from first person to third?

The game has always been able to switch between first person and third person with the press of a button.

Agreed, although we tend to get stuck waiting for a release, when M$ forces them to put games out early on the PleaseFixMe, the intelligent companies tend to round out the game with more content for us.

You have to hand it to these guys, at least they're putting in all the stops to improve this. I hope it turns out ok.
