Obscure: The Aftermath
Better than any horror film NICE : )
If you liked Resident Evil 4 or the movies The Ring, The Grudge, and any of The Screams you're gonna love this game. The best is ITS TWO PLAYER. This one is so scary that my wife and I can't play it alone. Turn out the lights surround the sound and then S*&? your pants. Good storyline kinda crazy. Just make sure that if you are in 2 plyr that the "gamer" controls the view or you'll get sick. The controls are straight I wouldn't say SMOOTH but do-able. Its part two of another story (although I have seen or played part one) and picks up a couple of years after the experiments of two brothers go haywire and destroy the school they themselves founded. You play as multiple characters each with special skills and each are needed through certain levels of the game. Its actually worth going though the freaking sweats and jumping out of your skin to see what happens next. Buy it, rent it, whatever just play it. It's cool
Best Wii Horror Game
This game was the best response to resident evil. The co-op story mode was an addition to a great game. also in the game each charecter had there own back story so its like you knew them as real people. the graphics for this game was less cartoonish then other wii games and was a little gorey. so for kids who are easilly frightened dont buy get this. the story was excellent had some meaning. if you have a friend who comes over you two wont be able to stop playing this game. it is so addicting the game is full of freeky monsters and villans so be ready. the weapons in this game are powerfull and easy to use. but conserve your weapons. this game also has a good single player mode your other charecter will play as if your playing co-op. This game is hands down a masterpiece of the wii and if you are a collecter like me than you will want this game
Probably the best Wii game you've never heard of!
Obscure: the Aftermath is a very good game... great value considering its price tag. What other games spent on TV and net advertising, Obscure team just passed on in low cost. The end result is a smooth adventure and suspense game that is a lot of fun to play. The game features good graphics/video, smart control and music, challenging gameplay, and a good storyline (even if you never played the original, it recaps you fast). You use many weapons and items as you control around 6-8 different characters in the story, each with their own niche skill. It's a game that's about a 60/40 mix of combat and problem solving (think RE4). The lock picking skill can be frustrating at first, but you learn to gradually advance the Wii controller towards the screen. The most original aspect of this game is the 2P co-op mode in a horror game, but playing 1P is also very fun (hint: your AI teammate using stun gun while you pummel monsters is very effective). Yes, the story to Obscure is a bit cheesy, but it's designed that way and works quite well... think teenage horror movies. I didn't find it especially scary to play (a lot of people seem to), but I play a lot of these types of games. The game is good about giving you hints (via teammate comments or the consulting the professor) when you are stuck, and it can be beaten in about a week (NOTE: there are another couple hours of gameplay after the end credits, don't be fooled). I certainly wasn't expecting anything nearly this good from the bargain bin... definitely worth the
Not worth buying...
When I read the reviews on this game, I was excited to play it because I'm a huge Resident Evil fan & one of the reviews I read said I'd probably like this game as well. -_- Negative. From the beginning, I could already tell this game was going to be a flop. I wasn't impressed by the graphics nor the lack of objectives as to what you're supposed to do. I obviously am not in agreement with others on this game. Would not recommend buying...
This game was surprisingly good, considering that I've never seen a commercial for it. Everything about this game is good. It is pretty lengthy the first time you beat it, but after that you can get through the game pretty fast.(well for me atleast) I dont fully recommend this game to people unless your ready to be annoyed. The lock picking gets harder to do the further you are in the game and might take a couple of tries to unlock a door. Beside the controls the sounds get a perfect 10. This is the scariest game I played since resident evil 1 for the nintendo gamecube. Just for the record these are my top five scariest games; 5.Silent hill 2, 4. Land of the dead, 3. The Suffering(part 1), 2.Obscure the Aftermath, 1. Resident evil 1(nintendo gamecube)
college kids with a corny horror theme to go with it. not worth it, i play ten minutes of it and regret every minute big let down. If you like a goofy horror theme with immautre college kids than this is your game but if you want a real zombie game,like resident evil than dont get this game becuase itll let you down.
A NICELY DONE CO-OP SURVIVAL HORROR GAME
Having played the 1st (and surprisingly solid) Obscure i pretty much knew that i would be purchasing the sequel. So is Obscure: The Aftermath as good as Obscure? For those of you who played and enjoyed the 1st game then the answer would be "absolutely". And the reason is because The Aftermath plays almost identical to Obscure, which is both good and bad. The bad would be that you wouldnt find much difference in gameplay, but the good would be that you would still be playing a solid co-op survival horror game. The graphics for the Wii version...to bottom line it...are GREAT. I would say there better than most garbage, shovelware, and ports that infest the Wii nowadays. It really is a great looking Wii game. Now the controls. While they do take a little time to get use to, after learning them, they really do feel as if they add to the overall game. And what about the music and voice acting? It's split. The voice acting is pretty cheesy, but then again it IS based on the lives of college kids so i'm sure that's what Hydravision was aiming for. But the music...WOW. No lie, its freaking fantastic. It has some really nice and dare i say beautiful melody's throughout the adventure and ofcourse as well as some pretty horrific tunes (it is a horror game afterall). If your looking for a good horror game for your Wii (your options are pretty limited) then you should invest in Obscure: The Aftermath. Play it with a friend for an even better time. Overall its just as good if not better than the 1st one.
I just saw a game video for this title, and I must saw wow. this game looks like its really going to push the Wii visually. It looks like Silent Hill for Wii. I'll be watching this one closely.
IF THe game is anything like the first one then im given it 4 out of 5 just because the storyline and graphics werent that great but the co-op was awsome it was kind of like resedent evil and cold fear with co-op mode i loved it it was also way too short i hope they dont move or cancell this game release...because the game is so awsome......peace
I hope its different
When I saw this game I thought oh great another wanna be resident evil. I don't want it to be like resident evil outbreak cause that game sucks. It does look great & I hope they take advantage of the wii remote & motion sensor. The story is interesting & I'm happy that we have a mature game for the wii. If Obscure can do something different & unique then I think we have a new series to be excited about.
