Gamespot’s actually played Alone in the Dark, then written words about it on the internet. The piece runs from the beginning of the game and takes in combat, the inventory system, explosions, fire and fighting a zombie with a frying pan. In summary:
Overall we were really impressed with the way Alone in the Dark is shaping up. While there are still some issues at this stage, it’s an ambitious game that looks set to reboot the franchise in style.
Read it yourself.

IGN hack Jeff Haynes has been to Konami in Japan and finished MGS4. As you can see here, in a piece entitled, “I’m the first American in the world to have beaten MGS4, which is freaking awesome,” Jeff’s pleased by this.
You should read all of this, but a stand-out bit says that the game’s far more open than previous instalments.
“Whereas previous Metal Gear Solid games have been relatively linear in their approach, MGS4 is much more of an open-world affair,” said Haynes. “While there are still specific locations that Snake will need to get to (which will constantly be indicated on Snake’s mini-map), the environments that he finds himself in will provide multiple paths to get him to his eventual destination. This provides much more flexibility in how you fight your way through the battlefields that engulf MGS4.”
