Obscure: The Aftermath

 

Say hello to the new flower children. As Amy approached the door, she felt the faint coldness of fear griping her heart, making it difficult to breath. The last step...

Great graphics ; Incredible music ; Nice use of multi-player

Too much backtracking ; Voice acting is bad, but funny ; Narrative is inconsistent ; Loading and frame-rate ; Camera is loose

Obscure: The Aftermath

 

It's easy to be hesitant about Obscure: The Aftermath. For one thing this is a sequel to a middling Resident Evil knock-off with a small cult following. And to make matters worse, the game came out a year and a half ago on the Wii and PlayStation 2,...

Obscure: The Aftermath is a fun survival horror game that is marred by dumb AI and a lame story. But even with its problems, I still had a great time looking at the amazing visuals and laughing at the cheesy dialogue. It's not going to win any awards,...

Obscure: The Aftermath

 

As I said in the Big Red Potion podcast featuring Eddie and myself, I don't do horror often. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Resident Evil, and I'll play Silent Hill and F.E.A.R. until the wee hours of the morning on occasion, but it's still not...

A game I was rather excited about took my hopes and crushed them. I was very underwhelmed by this. I'll need to look elsewhere for my horror fix. Perhaps my Dead Space save...

Obscure: The Aftermath Review

 

Average thrills

Great visuals, haunting music, co-op play

Not scary; co-op is only local, cheesy voice acting and writing

Survival horror has always been a dodgy genre for handheld platforms. It's hard to get sucked into a game when playing it on a three inch screen and even more difficult to be scared of a monster that's no bigger than your thumb. Obscure: The Aftermath...

Obscure: The Aftermath

 

Obscure: The Aftermath, originally on Playstation 2, has been ported from system to system, and now, the series has found it's home on the PSP handheld

Obscure: The Aftermath will provide some with a nice, handheld introduction into the survival horror genre. But for most, it's nothing more than an outdated handheld port.

Obscure: The Aftermath PSP Review

 

Given the popularity of teen slasher films and survival horror videogames, it's surprising the two don't collide more often. Where are the games based on the Scream or Final Destination franchises? Seems like a money-making no-brainer, yet most horror...

The game's biggest flaw is that the gameplay, despite the multi-character approach, feels dated. You won't be doing much of anything new in Obscure, you'll just have multiple characters to help solve the puzzles and kill the monsters you've seen in so...

Beware the dark flower.

Obscure: The Aftermath

 

Perhaps the worst thing I can say about Obscure: The Aftermath is that it's entirely average. The game has plenty of flaws, but not enough to break the game or render it a waste of time. Similarly, the presentation takes impressive strives with the...

Obscure: The Aftermath Hands-On

 

Originally released on the PlayStation 2, Nintendo Wii, and the PC last year, Obscure: The Aftermath will now be available on the PlayStation Portable so that you can take this college drama/survival horror game on the go. It might not be the easiest...

Obscure: The Aftermath - Review

 

One of the best parts about this job is getting to play certain games before they even hit stores, but the absolute best part is letting everyone know just what they have to look forward to – or not. Which brings us to the PSP port of Obscure:...

If you are a PSP owner and/or a fan of the glory days of the survival horror genre, then you'd do well to give this game a shot. It isn't quite as polished as the PSP's other entry in the genre, Silent Hill: Origins, but the game can be a lot of fun...
