I own this game too!
It was a bit of lotery when I bought it. I didn't play it before I bought it but since I like Lovercraft's stories and I trust Bethesda...
One of the most fearsome and challenging I have ever played. Chase sequences are quite memorable. I remember as I was franticaly running through long corridor, locking doors behind me. I was aware of my hand shaking with mouse but I couldn't control it. I wasn't fast enough and that thing killed me before I could escape. I swear something scratched my back at the very same moment I died in game...
It's quite innovative too. First game where I was counting bullets because there's no hud...
Loved this game.
I really liked the way it didn't hold your hand all the way through, It just threw you straight into it and let you sink or swim. A stark contrast to most games that are released today.
Also had some genuinely scary moments. I remember playing it in the dark with headphones on and it made me look over my shoulder a few times.
yes this game does require a lot from the player. I have it installed on my old computer back home and comes back to it a couple of times a year. The developers really know how to twist the players mind around, and i find myself blaming me for looking in the wrong windows Kind of reminds me of condemned, were i can't play to long sessions because my mind can only handle so much stress Also, I had to learn how to open a safe-lock in real life, and i needed help from a friend to decrypt some of the math-riddles :/
I have this game and I wish to god I had the time to play it again! For me the level that stands out above all others is the one where you're on the ship with sea monster trying to get on board!
