Didn't get much discussion out of this one before we made the move.

This is one of the things I picked up during the Steam sale. My review (http://t.co/tHtAhQJ3C8) of it is already up. Anybody else hop on this?

After playing this game, if nothing else I'm just damn glad to have been able to play something that applies psycho survival horror atmosphere to modern game tech. Basically, some of the old FEAR team took Silent Hill's atmosphere and some of its storytelling, and slapped it on top of an Elder Scrolls/Far Cry-esque world (though it's about as barren as Silent Hill). I could totally accept it if someone told me this place was just Silent Hill 400 years ago. No, the game isn't scary as fuck, but I definitely found it sufficiently moody. Combat in my opinion is also a nice example of how to design a first person action game without automatic weapons.
