I first played the game solo... It is so creepy, so frightening that it can't be described unless you try it yourself. Cheap screamers but also a very polished atmosphere both await the player at every corner of the streets.
Then I played coop... And it is way way less scary when you have the moral support of your teammates. Still, it is a lot of fun when finishing off giant creepy monsters with nothing but a tree branch because of the scarce ammo.
Play it. If you're too chicken, play coop, but just play it.
Not horrible, but disappointing. The maps I saw don't look much like the screenshots.
Some of it is suitably weird and creepy, but the maps are fairly rough - lots of light leaking from one room to another, HoM effects, etc. Puzzles seem to be either trivial or very hard - I created numerous saves in one room, and hardly any in the rest of the game.
== SPOILER ==
I couldn't get past the room with the floating, spinning symbols - I guess that's the end, but there is no indication.
I don't know where to start...Cognition really impressed me a lot!
Great stylish graphics, I love it! Great dialogs with awesome voice acting especially Erica's Reed! Great logic of all actions which is a lot, it gives to a player really deep feeling of true investigation work. Gameplay time is also great.
This is by far one of the greatest horror games that I've ever played. The atmosphere is very well done, there are a variety of things to do and find, the game includes some comical relief (because there needs to be some relief in horror games), and, best of all, the map is different every time. To sum up what I'm saying, I've been playing this since v0.3 and SCP-173 still manages to make me jump out of my seat. Phenomenally done!
I think this story is amazing! The house itself is so extremly well detaild and the layout is just epic!
The story is good and for once not original, which in my opinion is a good thing. I also love the scares! There are pretty few scares, but due to the fact that the wolf can sneak by on you at anytime in more or less every room is so spooky and is keeping you on the guard during the whole gameplay more or less. I even accidently ran right on to the wolf once. He took the way at the kitchen and I didn't hear him so I ran right on him :p
I also loved your cassettes and the fact that you can combine them and listen to them how many times as you like. I also loved the puzzles! I admit, some of them are a bit hard to solve. Almost too hard. I do like challanges thought.
And I agree with the others, add subtitles. I understood mostly everything, but I know alot of people don't
Not much bad I can say about it actually. A bit hard to solve some of the puzzles and subtitles should be added. Oh, and the wolf upstairs can spawn over and over again which is pretty annyoing to be honest and the story could sometimes lagg, otherwise awesome!
10/10 - Masterpiece
Excellent mod, well implemented, with a great age of musket system, better balanced than others with more "publicity", and it's singleplayer too, which IMHO it's much interesting that MP only mods. I gave it an 8, but now it deserves better mark because it's continually improving. Good job!
