I actually really like Alone in the Dark. I own it. I bought the Collectors Edition. I remember reading the reviews but the screenshots and videos really intrigued me. None the less, I ended up buying it and couldn't understand the bad critics. I have not been one to follow ratings because there have been some really good low rated games and yet I've disliked a lot of high rated games so it's best to use your own judgement. I still haven't finished Alone in the Dark, it's on my to do list. :P
And Would You Scream For Your Safety?
