It’s Friday the 13th in October. You know what that means... someone has taken the time to release a freak show of a game during the year’s spookiest month. Read on for Rob’s first impressions.

    Game is great. I am giving 1 another replay before starting this.

    So my major gripe with the first game was how stealth heavy it was, is this along the same path?

    Looks and sounds good. I may have to try it out. :)

    Yes, but it's not as hard to do as the first one was (so I hear).

    Yeah that was a problem, the game wasn't hard all the way through but the stealth was crazy difficult and pretty frequent (which isn't a problem but it took away from the overall horror of the game). The parts that weren't so focused on stealth in the first one were amazing, pretty horrifying and really fun to experience. I'll have to check this out. I'm a huge survival horror fan.

    "To make matters even stranger there is classical music playing in the background."

    pffftt!

    Nothing strange about that at all. Come to my place you'll hear it all the time.

    Liked the 1st one. I think this 2nd one is even better, only have a couple of hours in so far but digging it a lot.

    Oh yeah - crank the difficulty all the way up, it makes it way more fun.

    I had a younger date the other week and I had Mozart playing on the stereo when she walked in. She said and I quote "so what are you a vampire?"

    Maybe it was introducing yourself as Constantine Merus more than the music that made her think of that? :)
