My friend Ray from Super Adventures in Gaming just wrote a review of one of my all-time favorite games, Realms of the Haunting.
Realms of the Haunting’s got a bit of that Alone in the Dark/Resident Evil thing going on, with the scary mansion, the cutscenes, the inventory of clues and puzzle items to use etc. but it’s been far less of a pain in the ass. I was allowed to see where I was going, I could save whenever I wanted, I could pick up objects with a single click, I didn’t have to shuffle things into storage boxes to make room… and it still let me watch my inventory items spin around!
Go check it out!
