Graphics

The graphics are really great in Eternal Darkness. Charters, monsters and enverioment looks all good. I will give magic casting some extra points, because it looks so good...
So everything looks good. Charters emotions have been made look natural. One more thing that is a good add: Sanity effects. It looks almost realistic as some cockroaches move at your tv screen...and so on....There are also some other sanity effects too....

Story

You play as Alexandra Roivas and her ancestors. You will have to destroy the evil that tries to consume the whole world.
There are four different gods in the game : Ulyaoth, Chaturr'gha, Xel'lotath. There is also Mantorok which is the greatest god of them. As you choose in the beginning one of the three first gods, it will affect the whole story and  all gods have their own  personal units for example Xel'lotath bonethief or Ulyaoth Horror. As you move on in the story, you will play as  Alexandras ancestors in different times. I mean you can play example play whith Pious Augustus in time when there were Rome, or you can play as Peter Jacobs in world war II time and so on.....(There are 12 playable charters in the whole game, if im right).



Gameplay

The controls of the game are really easy, so you dont have to be a pro to play the game....
There are many good things about gameplay, but unfortunetly there is also one bad thing.
The only bad thing is fighting. You will have auto aim whith you so there is no challenge in killing a Horror for example..And its crampy.  You just repeat pressing A or lock to targets head and hit it off. That's it....no, im serious.....that's it.....lol....that sucks.......
One of my favourite things in the game, that makes it really good: Sanity. As your sanity drops, you will have some really funny hallucinations like bleeding walls and staring statues........

Voices and Music


The voice actors have done their job really well. No complaining about voices....
The "musics" are some good stuff. Well i cant say its music but it fits in the game though.
Also when your sanity gets low, the music changes and it gets more scarying.......

(Final) grade

After long thinking, i think that this games grade should be A-. It really earns it whith its many benefits.
