Alone In The Dark PS3 Demo On PSN
Okay, for Eden Studios, it's judgment day: the PlayStation 3 version of Alone in the Dark - now renamed as Alone in the Dark: Inferno - releases on November 18, and you now have a chance to see if Eden came through on their renovation claims.
A playable demo is now up on the PlayStation Store, and it's time to cross your fingers and hope. The Xbox 360 version suffered from a few serious flaws (and we won't even mention the atrocious PS2 version), but Eden has taken the appropriate steps to rework and retool this promising survival/horror title from the ground up. Supposedly, they have overhauled the camera, inventory system, and even the basic control of the main character has been upgraded. They're also presenting PS3 owners with an "all-new action sequence revealing a previously unseen enemy of epic proportions." Heck, they've even gone so far as to rework the driving dynamics in the game, so Eden certainly listened to the negative feedback from gamers and critics earlier this year. The only question is, did they do enough to save the game from mediocrity and obscurity in this jam packed holiday season?
Many fans of the genre in question already have Dead Space, but hey, you should have plenty of time to beat that bad boy and be ready for another great survival/horror experience by mid-November. ...you'll probably know if it's worth your time and money by checking out this demo.
