Review This Game


RotH is a real classic from 1997. Basically it is an action adventure, where no part comes too short: In your quest to explore a... enormous mansion and even otherworldly places, you'll have to solve a great variety of puzzles, but you'll also have to fight your way through different enemies in shooter fashion, some of them are very special. The sortiment of weapons you'll get consists not only of the usual shotgun and co, but also of very cool mystic artifacts, magical staffs and other fancy stuff. The game has a very nice, deep atmosphere, and whilst the story can get a little bit confusing at times, you'll just want to explore the whole gameworld, because everything feels so intriguing. I like the graphics, they are among the best you'll see from the good old times before 3D-accelerators were an obligation. Even the trashy cutscenes with real actors are a pleasure to watch. The controls will need some time to get into, as they are not very intuitive.


The first thing that stand out about Realms of the Haunting is the gameplay, an hybrid between a first person shooter and point ...and click adventure game, very uncanny and certainly ensure an unusual gaming experience. The only down side is that the artificial intelligence of the enemies is very poor and even the stronger creatures simply don't give you any challenge, there are also several mazes where the game don't provide a map, and since all the chambers looks the same its very easy to get stuck in them for hours. While the story is somewhat cliché for a horror game, the protagonist go into a mysterious abandon house and so forth, the actual plot is very good and interesting and manage to capture your attention, the exception is the ending that (without giving any spoilers) is disappointing. It should also note that the cutscences are FMV and they still look rather good now (considering it's a 1996 game) and in contrast to a lot of FMV games the acting quality is quit good.
