Latest Microreviews on Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem Review written Monday, January 5th, 2015 at 12:57 am.

10Classic!

A wise human knows they do not know everything, a fool believes they do... Yes it may not have the laser like action all the way through as the Resident Evil games. It's not as oppressive as Silent Hill. Truth to tell it's like a good balance of both & then some. It deals like a genius with the concept of time in a survival horror game & from multiple souls perspective. I don't want to give too much away if you have not experienced it. One cannot judge unless they have played it. It's a unique gem of a game unlike overall anything that has come before or since. It's so much more than a survival horror game it's a lesson.

9.0Fantastic

A wonderful interpretation of Lovecraftian-style storytelling. This game had so many unique and enjoyable elements that I'd never come across in a game before. It also had the terror of insanity, and the tactics used to represent your character's slipping grasp on reality as well as making you question your own sanity were pure genius. The gameplay was mostly fun, with some tedium, but the atmosphere of impending doom always made it interesting. Also, the villain (the one who's not an elder god) was awesome.

10Classic!

Long before you dismember necromorphs in Dead Space and had Psycho Mantis playing those fourth wall-breaking tricks on you, we had Eternal Darkness doing both of these. Aside from its famous sanity effects (which are everything you have heard about and more), you will find that this game has a very well-written plot with obvious influence from Lovecraftian works that are done real well. The game has a fairly large cast of likable characters and that's including the three villainous Gods you fight against as well. This game is willing to take risks, and at the end of each chapter your character may wind up dead or as good as. With pretty much everything perfect, although some may complain about its combat system, I absolutely love it!

9.0Fantastic

Scary. Freaking SCARY. Frightening, uniquely frightening. My brain and emotions were toyed with throughout this entire experience and it's a true survival horror game at its heart. It's just a work of art in horror! It's one of the many cult reasons why I am in love with the Nintendo GameCube

7.5Great

Love the Lovecraft tribute this game is, way cooler than your typical zombie game. That said, the controls aren't real precise and the the fourth-wall breaking insanity stuff is actually hard to trigger unless you are trying to trigger them, which cuts down on the immersion. Still this game has some really great ideas going on, even if the gameplay is fairly average in comparison.

8.0Great

Perhaps the best part of this game was the random insanity tricks that it would play on you, not the character. You really have to play it to understand it.

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem Review written Wednesday, January 12th, 2011 at 09:14 pm.

--unrated

If there were an orphanage of great games that said "please play me", Eternal Darkness would be there with its sister, Beyond Good and Evil, being the amazing children of absolute brilliance that everyone ignored. Eternal Darkness is a brilliantly atmospheric horror game with multiple settings, puzzles, and playstyles to keep things interesting while still retaining a feeling of supreme helplessness and establishing charismatic, likable characters in the Roivas family line.
