I don't know how this game will end up, but this demo shows that the developers are actually trying something new-ish (shocker!) that looks to be oodles of fun and drastically replayable. Check it out.

Man, meet me by the flagpole after school. :)

I'm excited about this game now. Usually, though, what happens is that I will ignore all the cool ways to kill the enemy and instead will do whatever is fastest. That's what happened with Bioshock.

I think that the replayability factor of this game will be off the charts, though.

I heard it only runs at -14 frames per second on playstation though.

Eden Studios has said that it is working on a patch for the Xbox 360 version of Alone in the Dark to bring it into line with the heavily reworked PS3 version.

The developer was at Games Convention in Leipzig this week to show off the new PS3 version and own up to all the things we said were insanely rubbish during our Xbox 360 review.

Changes include streamlined inventory systems, more coherent integration of the irritating final section of the game with those flipping trees, and a better camera system and controls for on-foot and driving sections...


...Eden has not specified precisely which tweaks will appear in the 360 patch, or given any idea when it will come out, but if you want to build up a wish-list then head over to our just-published Alone in the Dark PS3 hands-on and get a pen out.
So, the developer is actually finishing this game.

It's cool that they're fixing it, but they should have done this before the game was released. This could have been something big.

Yes. The PS3 version will release in a couple of months and is supposed to be fixing a bunch of the problems this game had when it released.

The patch for the 360 version is supposed to make the same changes.
