PCGameplay heeft de hand kunnen leggen op een beta van Alone in the Dark 4 en hebben er een previewtje van geschreven. In dit nieuwste deel in de succesvolle Alone in the Dark reeks speel je de rol van Edward Carnby, een prive-detective. Na een noodoproep van een vriend kom je terecht op het mysterieuze Shadow Island. Daar ontvouwt zich een spanned verhaal, weergegeven met een fantastische grafische engine.And for those of you who enjoy plenty of gaming for your dollar, AITD4 doesn't look like it skimps either. Even in the short time we had the game, we discovered masses of locations to wander through from the many floors of Obed Morton's giant mansion to the surrounding gardens and woods and underground to the dank, water filled sewers. In fact, there might even be too many locations, with some rooms consisting of five or six screens to traverse - perhaps a bit too many when you're trying to get from one location to another.

Alone In The Dark 4: The New Nightmare certainly looks like it's going to deliver a solid few hours of gameplay. It's just that the only real surprise with the game is perhaps how similar it appears to everything that's gone before. Still, with six months' development to go before the game's launch, Infogrames may well be keeping some dark surprises in reserve...
