In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, has been operating in strict secrecy… until now. Acting on a tip from an inside source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.
The good things are that the jumpscares are well done, the graphics are great, the atmosphere is wonderful, Chris Walker freaked me out quite a lot and I'm going to make this a little bit of a long sentence, there were a lot of scares in the beginning. Then when it started to get a little boring, new scares came in to make the experience better. The music is also well done, the ambience tracks were indeed creepy. The not so great things were that things were sort of starting to get a little repetitive but the amount of scariness in the game didn't change which is what I loved about the game. So despite a few of the things getting repetitive, this was a great game.
I chose 9 out of 10 because of 5 things I focus on when reviewing horror games, it's Quality, Scares, Lag, Story and Length! (Atmosphere and stuff like that is included in the Quality!)
Quality: The Quality was amazing, I absolutely think the graphics looked incredible! But the graphics isn't what's most important for a horror game, it needs a good story and quite a few not cheap scares :D Other than that, the voice-acting was very well made, graphics was amazing, I loved the idea with night-vision camera, and the ambience is also very good, but the dramatic music in scares/chasing turned it down a bit for me! Scares: Awesome scares, with the Walrider ghost attacking you out of nowhere just spread fear into my body, cus I am absolutely terrified by ghosts and demons in games! Also the animations for when the fat guy kills you is also good and that the body might land in the view of the camera so you see a headless body laying there! Lag: I experinced a little lag but that was probably my computer and my recording program's fault :P Story: I really liked the story being held inside the asylum at all times and the mixed feelings in the notes about the Walrider and the patients everything kind of links to eachother and the storyline very well :) Length: I thaught 15 episodes for a game like this was pretty fine, just fine for my taste not too long, not too short, just absolutely fine :)
Quality: BIG 9 - Scares: BIG 9 - Lag: 9 - Story: BIG 9 - Length: 10 - An amazing game with awesome music, scares, ambience, voice-acting, graphics, etc. everything was incredibly well made, I really enjoyed this game alot and I wish it didn't end this quick! A well deserved 9!
I would give it a 10/10 cuz in an indie game, this is the Perfect "One". For having no Lag , Great Scares, (Like Chase Scenes) , Awesome Quality , Excellent Objectives , and (OUT)LASTly is the overall game Lenght like it was so long to Finished it (especially for the Noobs :D). So that's It !! Hope you enjoyed reading this review ... :D Teehee
A fantastic horror experience. To be honest, I'm not into horror games. I don't like to be scared in games, although I do love to be challenged. In the game, you only have 3 choices. Run, Hide or Die. Great graphics, great look & feel. The feeling that you are being watched, and the feeling anything can happen at any time, makes you feel on edge. Great audio and sounds. As you continue in this crazy story, you'll discover gruesome and horrible things. But in the end, everything will be explained and everything will be clear. It is a satisfying, yet predictable ending. Not a great one, but good enough. I do hope there will be a sequel.
