Eurogamer gives Alone in the Dark Wii 3/10
Ow. Eurogamer’s panned the Wii version of Alone in the Dark, and it makes for pretty horrific reading, aptly enough. From the piece:
Alone in the Dark on Xbox 360 was a noble failure, just about clawing respectability from the jaws of disaster thanks to some interesting puzzles and mechanics, but forgetting to make the basic controls work in the process. Alone in the Dark on Wii is a broken adaptation of that borked premise, which leaps into the jaws of disaster, hauls them closed afterwards, and starts stabbing itself in the face with the nearest fang. At times you really wish it worked, because the threat of a good idea or two remains, but it doesn’t.
Read it if you dare.
