In Nightmare House 2 you wake up inside an abandoned hospital with no understanding of how you came to be there, only a vague memory of the girl from Nightmare House haunts you. Soon it will be difficult to determine between a dream and reality. How long will it take you to realize that escape is not an option?
This was an incredible experience! Almost like it was Valve that made it! It lies in the horror genre, however I do not think it lived up to my expectations. This was more of an indepth experience with some horror elements thrown in. Not once did I find myself going "Oh ****!" or "DAMN!!!" The scariest part for me was when you're in this old rustic section and the walls close in on you, then when you look up Emily is there staring at you. Overall. Great experience! Not as scary as NH1, but still fantastic!
Very awesome mod! Extremely well designed. Great story and characters, my favorite was the squad leader that you run into about a third of the way through the game, he was badass!
1 of the criticisms I have was that NH2 seemed to copy some events from Silent Hill 3, but that's only during 1 part during the mod.
Aside from that the game was pretty spooky at times, a quality that I value in my games.
Probably the best mod mod I ever played, definitely the best horror mod I've ever played. The graphics, textures, lighting, characters, were all superb. The Prologue though is sorta annoying because there are no directions (I had to use godmode, because I needed to take a through look around the map without getting killed :P), but really was done nicely.
The Story was amazing, everything made perfect sense, and the characters really moved things along. The AI was great except for those times were they get up in your face, and don't move for about a minute. The puzzles and the enemies were well balanced, and overall fun. The skins and weps were also very good, though the SMG was a bit weak and should have been tweaked a bit.
What I liked especially was the decaptation at certain times, which I felt is also the brunt of Zombie-esque games. This mod also really accomplished the sense of horror, and really left me scared after certain parts (especially when you have headphones on in the dark). Overall, this is not a mod to be missed, and should be played by all Horror game and FPS fans alike, it really bridges the gap between the two.
