Atari is rebooting the Alone in the Dark franchise

Horror this, horror that. 2014 is going to be known for the year the horror genre really took off again. Presumably because games like Slender Man, Outlast, and more have made some of the bigger companies realize th...

Atari NYC Media Day: Alone in the Dark on the PS3 with ... damn it

I was really looking forward to Alone in the Dark -- so much so, that I put it at number eight on my list of the top 10 PS3 games I was anticipating the most this year. I say “was” -- as in, past tense -- because,...

Alone in the Dark PS3 gets a new price

When all else fails, make something cheaper and people will buy it. It's some human disease that we are all afflicted with to some degree -- the cheaper an item is, the more our sense of bargain hunting convinces us that we s...

Rise from your grave! Atari turns a profit

This past year hasn't been so good for Atari. In late 2007, they stopped game production after a loss of $11.9 million in one quarter. Ouch. Even more bad press came when there was some financial fumbling in the books. Soon a...

Alone in the Dark PS3 will be improved: Turd polishing machine found at Atari

We at Destructoid did not like Alone in the Dark. In fact, our review of it was quite harsh (although to its credit, it was no Eternity's Child). If you were holding out for the PlayStation 3 version, however, don't kill your...

Destructoid Review: Alone in the Dark
by Conrad Zimmerman

Alone in the Dark

As a series, Alone in the Dark has a bit of a tainted history. Its first title is credited with creating the feel of the Survival Horror genre and is a landmark game. From that lofty peak, however, what started it all has produced one mediocre sequel after another and has been consistently outshined by the likes of Resident Evil and Silent Hill. And let's not even talk about the Uwe Boll film adaptation.

Eden Games aimed to change all of that this year by giving the old property more than just a new coat of paint.  This Alone in the Dark is bold and ambitious, boasting features never before seen in gaming combined with a slick, current-gen appearance.

 Is this the revival that is going to put the franchise back on the map as the cutting edge of the genre it created? Hit the jump to find out.
