Alone in the Dark is another frustrating reboot for the classic horror series

Alone in the Dark's promising atmosphere is let down by annoying and repetitive puzzles, poor combat and frequent glitches. There's a good game in there somewhere but you have to put up with a lot of frustration to find it.

  • Atmospheric locations and a clever portal gimmick
  • David Harbour and Jodie Comer do their best with the material
  • Painfully convoluted and repetitive puzzle solving
  • Combat is sloppy and enemy AI is weak
  • Riddled with bugs and performance issues
  • The plot can get nonsensical at times
2 / 5
