I was thinking of buying Cthulhu - Dark Corners of the Earth for my Xbox 360, (I believe it is on the backwards compatibility list) but I can't decide whether to or not, so some opinions on the game would be appreciated.|
My main concern is the difficulty-level, which is meant to be quite high - and I am not that skilled a gamer. What attracted me to Call of Cthulhu, was that it looks quite atmospheric, and I'm a sucker for a bit of atmosphere.
I have listed the other horror games I have finished, and where appropriate, I have put what difficulty I finished it on.
Since Call of Cthulhu is in first-person, I will put the first-person ones first.
Condemned - Easy
Project Zero II (Xbox version with FPS view) - Easy
The Suffering - Easy
F.E.A.R. - Easy
BioShock - Hard (but with Vita-Chambers ON)
The Darkness - Easy
Resident Evil 2 - Normal
Resident Evil 3 - Normal
Resident Evil - Code: Veronica X
Resident Evil Zero - Easy
Resident Evil Remake - Easy (might have done Normal - can't remember)
Resident Evil 4 - Normal (including Seperate Ways)
Alone in the Dark - The New Nightmare
ObsCure - Normal
Silent Hill - Normal
Silent Hill 2 - Nornal
Silent Hill 3 - Normal
Silent Hill 4 - Easy
Dead Rising - (72 Hour Mode and Overtime Mode)
Also, I started Doom 3 on Easy and was doing OK, but then I couldn't get past the first of the big bosses.
I also tried The Thing, but I was rubbish at it and gave up fairly quickly.
So, should I go for Call of Cthulhu (assuming I can find a copy), or is it likely to be way beyond my skill?
Also, can anybody tell me if Haunting Ground, Clock Tower or Obscure 2 on the PlayStation 2 are worth getting. I would also ask about Rule of Rose, but I believe that was banned.
I am currently looking forwards to Silent Hill - Origins on PlayStation 2 (never had a PSP) and also Condemned 2, Alone in the Dark, Resident Evil 5, Silent Hill V and Alan Wake on the Xbox 360.
Wow - what a mansion!
