What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Lots of gore! Great story, cool weapons and spells, creepy atmosphere

The Bad: Extremely slow pace, flat, boring, and lifeless visuals, unforgiving difficulty

I came into Undying with high expectations from what I've heard of the game and they were easily brought down fast. While the game creates a scary atmosphere and the story is original...it takes FOREVER for it to pick up and the shooting is the same thing over and over. You have plenty of neat weapons and magical powers but most of them are rendered useless. The story goes along the lines of a man named Patrick who has to help and old friend out who released a curse when he was a child. You have to investigate this curse and find out what was really released. While this is good and all the game takes forever to tell the story and makes you just want to stop playing for good.

The graphics are bad for today's standards. Using the Unreal Engine 1.0 the game tries to create a creepy and scary atmosphere, which it pulls off, but in the end brought down due to its poor graphics. While there are older games that have good graphics even for today; Undying's are just lifeless, flat, and boring. The game is ultra gory with skeletons ripping your heart out and eating it, Howlers ripping your head off and eating it...it's a bloody sight indeed. Also, with the extreme difficulty it makes you want to hate this game even more. Ammo and health are scarce even on the easy setting. This was of course when EA had balls and released games such as Thrill Kill, American McGee's Alice, and this game. If you can stomach the poor graphics and slow pace then Undying is for you. If you played this game back in 2001 then it would have been wonderful.
