What is 2Dark about?
From Frédérick Raynal, the creator of Alone in the Dark and pioneer of survival-horror, 2Dark is a grim journey of stealth and courage into the heart of corruption. Use your cunning to infiltrate Gloomywood's bastions of cruelty. Investigate to uncover the secrets of the deranged psychopaths within, seek retribution for their crimes, and bring the children to safety.
Plagued by a string of child abductions, darkness hangs over the once-picturesque city of Gloomywood like a curse, smothering hope and paralyzing its citizens with fear. Having seen his own wife slain and his children taken, former detective Mr. Smith vows to find justice and bring an end to the misery. But, if only it were so simple. From dubious streets and suspicious dwellers, to the pack of smokes in your pocket and the betrayal of your own footsteps, danger infests every corner and crevice. Doubt everything in this trap of a city where death is the only certainty.
I give this game 5 stars, since it is really an exceptional phenomenon, for believe it or not 8.99 € such a kind, gripping and lovingly made game to get.Rein graphically it is an effortless experience, which reminds me a bit of the romantic, artificial cartoon kind of "Life is Strange". But that's completely irrelevant because we're dealing with a 1st Person Survival game, in which there are only a few cutscenes anyway and whose priority is the atmosphere. In the center is the survival in a very simple, but all the more atmospheric nature environment in a merciless winter in a fictitious landscape, which (I suppose) is leaned on the USA or Canada.The player moves at first with hardly any equipment through the wilderness and has to defy the forces of nature, make fire, boil water, collect firewood, find food, hunt, find shelter and budget with his resources. Even in the simplest of the three difficulty levels, this is a real challenge. But the game arouses such ambition and tactical thinking that you are always motivated to get ahead, to resist the adversities of nature and to master your journey.You can either do this in free survival mode, or (like me so far) in atmospheric story mode.All in all: 8,99 € for this lovingly programmed and presented game? This is the price-performance magnum opus of my PS4 career. I recommend this game with a clear conscience... maybe not to fans of fast action and unconditional variety, because you have to get involved with THIS game.
