Call of Cthulhu: Dark corners of the Earth
Welcome back to yet another Cthulhu game review, alas also the last I have write about. But I sure hope that you have gotten a liking to H.p Lovecraft or games inspired by Lovecraft.
Well to the point, Call of Cthulhu: Dark corners of the Earth, is a first person shooter with a hint of roleplaying game, where you are the main player, police detective Jack Walters who takes up a missing person case in Innsmouth. You start out the game with a small introduction in to the life of Jack Walters, then you zoom forward some years and Jack is now a P.I.
The graphics are somewhat old now, but the gameplay is fantastic you get caught in this Fps/Rpg horror game from the start to the very beginning. And if you know your US History you might recognize some people whom you meet in the game.
The game is the classic fps, just with the added roleplay feature, like the ones you see in Bioshock and Halo.
The sound in the game or the ambience is what makes it work great with the graphic part, you can hear almost everything. The rat crawling in the sewer, Jack Walters breathe, before or after you’ve run like hell, to the wind blowing down the street or the moaning and grunting from the npcs.
All in all a great horror game, play it during night not day and forget about brightness, keep it as dark as possible.
Word of warning; do not walk around with your firearm all the time. Or try it out just save the game constantly.
Call of Cthulhu: Dark corners of the Earth was the first of many games to come, unfortunately due to long coding time of creating this game the other 2 where discarded. So enjoy this game not just once but after completion if you can, then try it out again with perhaps another approach to the main story.
Hopefully we will see more Cthulhu games out on various platforms soon!
