Parasite  "Hiya,i Just Wann'a Tell You That Alone In The Dark: The New Nightmare Is My Favorite And I Think One Of The Best Horror Games In Palystation History!!!without Hasitate, I Quickly Bought It And Pop It Into My Playstation Console. After Watching The Beautifully Done Opening Fmv, I Was Amazed By The Beautiful Graphics And The Spectacular Lighting Effects. Although The Control Sucks 'cause It Is Hard To Meanuver Your
Character. All In All, This Is A Very Good Game. Go Buy It If You Are A Resident Evil Series Fan. You Won't Be Dissapointed."

Andreas Claxton  "It Was A Great Game From The Beginning. The Lighting Wasgreat, I Mean Gave An Eerie Feeling Right From The Beginning. When It Was Dark You Start To Wonder If There Was Anything Around The Next Corner.

2 Cds, And Two Different Storylines, It's Just Too Great. Anyone That Doesn't Have Should Go Out And Get It"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Nicole Neville (lolanicolina)  "Wow! Scared? Wot Me?? Too Bloomin' Right Mate!
Having Had The Heebeegeebees With This Game For A While Now, I Finally Plucked Up The Courage To Try Again! So, Armed With Stiff Drink (purely Medicinal You Understand), Pencil & Pad (clues...y'know!) And Several Changes Of Underwear I Closed My Curtains, Booted Up The Ps2 And Steeled My Nerves In Readiness For My Mission.

By The Time I'd Gotten Ed. Carnaby Down Into The Pipeways I Had Forgotten All About How Scary I Thought The Game Was And Became Completely Entranced By The Quality Of It.

Packed With Atmospheric Sound Fx, Eery Music, Amazing Lighting (the Torchlight Whilst Walking Up The Spiral Staircase To The Attic Is Nothing Short Of Amazing) And A Rumble That Registers On The Richter Scale, This Is A Game That Promises To Deliver...time And Time Again.

Get This Game...you Won't Be Disappointed!"

Chris Norman (tiff71)  "What Ever You Do, Don't Play This Game By Yourself, Alone In The Dark!!!

Way Back Silent Hill Made It In My Horror Books As The Best Mind Warping Game That Has Ever Graced A Video Game Console. The Only Thing That Could Top That Game Off Would Be Silent Hill 2, But No! With This Version Being In The Works For Sometime Now And The Playstation Way Past It's Sell By Date In Video Gaming History (but What The Hell, Sony Has Re-written The History Books With The Playstation) You Would Think That This Would Be A Evil Dead Game (totally Garbage!!). No I Was Wrong! It Has Pushed The Limits Of The Machine And Given Us A Good Graphical (What Was That In The Darkness??, Damn My Torch Has Just Gone Out!!) Wild Ride In The Darkness Of Shadow Island

It's Classical Survival Horror GamePlay With Little Nice Touches In The Game Engine Like Progressive Lighting Effects From Your Torch Over The Classical Resident Evil Pre-render Surroundings And Things Just Popping Out To Say Hi!! With Big Nasty Teeth!!

2 Cd's, 2 Scenarios, Too Much!! This Is A Must Have Title For All You Horror Action Fans And It Does Show That There Is Still Power In The Old Beast.

Let's Hope That Devil May Cry And Silent Hill 2 Match Up To This Underpants Soiling Game"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Scott Baker (evil Resident)  "Let Me Get Straight To The Point About That This Game Is Scary So Before You Decide To Play It I Suggest That You Buy A Few Extra Pairs Of Pants Because You Will Be Filling Them With A Solid Substance.

You Can Tell Straight Away That This Is Going To Be A Excellent Game By The Opening Fmv Sequence, And Once The Game Starts The Graphics And The Lighting Effects Are Supperb. There Are Very Few Glitches In The Game But The Thing That Annoyed Me Alittle Bit Was When The Character Walked Onto Another Screen And The Game Sticks For A Split Second But Is Still Noticable.

There Is A lot Of Gameplay To Be Had In This Game With It Having 2 Cd's And 2 Scenarios, One With A Women And One With A Man, Both Having Different Reasons For Going Onto Shadow Island. They Get Split Up At The Beginning Of The Game And Have To Complete Numerous Puzzles To Find What They Are Looking For And Get Of The Monster Invested Island.

Over All The Gameplay And The Story Is Excellent And If You Decide To Buy This Game You Will Not Be Dissapointed."
