The Haunted is a fast paced thirdperson horror-action game with focus on a intense multiplayer experience that is all about making a stand and liberating cursed places from the minions of evil. The game features several multiplayer modes such as coop or demons .vs. humans, where enemies are spawned and controlled by players. The outstanding visuals lay a perfect tone for the gameplay.

Here I go - how long did I want to try this? I don't know. Now is the time and I can only hope it's not as addicting as I think it will be.

Ok I love love love 2.5!

...but, this is me being picky, so..the climb ladder animation it looks clunky and unfinished. And remember this is just me being picky, mainly because this game is triple A imo and deserves such in every respect. :D

I still can't understand why there is a huge lack of players.

Lack of players? If a server is empty and I jump on it, it usually fills up within 5-10 minutes. Depends on the time too, as most servers seem to be American/ Non-Europe regions.

SinKing is right, I joined up a server at 6:15am PST and someone else joined me within 3 mins.

I really like the game, played it for an hour on SURVIVAL MODE. So far, the one thing I noticed is a lack of variation on the zombies. Please add more zombies! I would recommend getting some idea's from the BLOOD 3D. Thanks!
