Great Game!...Good horror game...I really enjoyed the game, it has that SILENT HILL type feeling going for it and actually made me jump a few times when I least expected it....Well I went to best buy to get a new phone on Black Friday and it just so happened that they had the game for only $20!
Detective Sebastian Castellanos thinks he's investigating a routine mass murder — if such a thing can be routine — but little does he know, he's walking into a cruel and twisted trap that will lead to nothing but horror. In a terrifying chain of events, he witnesses hideous monsters slaughter his fellow officers, moments before he is ambushed and knocked unconscious. Filled with terror and trepidation, he awakens to find himself in a deranged world where horrific creatures wander among the dead. Fighting a mysterious and powerful force, Castellanos must do whatever it takes to survive — even if it means using the diabolical devices of the monsters against it. Do you have what it takes to fight back the anxiety and tension and unravel what's behind this evil force? Will you discover The Evil Within?
Don the role of Detective Castellanos, trapped in a horrific and warped world and forced on a frightening journey. Face unthinkable terrors and cruel traps as you struggle to survive with what limited resources you have. This mysterious world won't make it easy on you — everything from corridors, walls and doors to entire buildings change in real time, ensnaring you in a reality full of unknown threats. Only you have the power to break free from the warped machinations that can exist only in nightmares. An intricately woven storyline is combined with cutting-edge lighting and animation techniques, made possible by a customized version of the id Tech 5 engine, for a thrilling experience that challenges you to defeat insurmountable terror. Directed by the father of survival horror, Shinji Mikami, The Evil Within tests your courage by taking you on a journey full of heightened tension and unspeakable horror.
Great Game...It also has a bit of a horror element to it, but not an uncomfortable amount - I was sweating from the tension and eerie moments, but was never truly scared (I bought this game for the story and shooter gameplay)....Excellent Game, lots of action, just be sure to set the screen darkness slightly brighter then they recommend at the beginning otherwise it gets a little too difficult to see the creatures....I did get a great deal on this, between the Black Friday price and Gamer Club discount.
As you take in the pleasant view outside your window, it's hard to fathom that it could all be swept away in the blink of an eye. For Artyom, however, there's no need to imagine — after the devastation of an apocalyptic event, the only hope for salvation lies in the darkness deep beneath Moscow in the underground. The
Metro franchise introduced you to Artyom's world as you plunged into the survival horror genre with
Metro 2033, then kept you riveted in the action-packed follow-up,
Metro: Last Night. Now, get ready to return to the terror and brutality that defines this hellish world on a first-person shooter thrill ride that tests your will to survive in every way.
Metro Redux includes Metro 2033, the terrifying first chapter of Artyom's struggle for survival in the ruins of his city, as well as Metro: Last Night, the heart-pounding continuation. The nightmare begins in Metro 2033 as Artyom, a survivor of an apocalyptic event 20 years in the past, is forced to leave the relative safety of Moscow's underground and emerge into a world populated by murderous mutants and full of toxicity and danger around every corner. As if the world outside wasn't horrific enough, Metro: Last Light brings the terror underground as Artyom struggles to save humanity as it perches on the edge of civil war and ultimate destruction. Struggle for survival armed only with homemade weapons and your trusty gasmask as you fight your way through two action-saturated campaigns with all-new melee animations, plus hours of thrilling DLC. Immerse yourself in the bleak world of post-apocalyptic Moscow with stunning imagery rendered in silky smooth 60 fps, as well as new lighting, physics, dynamic weather effects and full-body player animations. Take charge with improved AI, controls and weapon handling and easily check your watch and ammo supplies on the fly. Prepare yourself for slow-burning intensity in Survival mode, or duke it out in brutal combat in Spartan mode. Rise to the ultimate challenge as you wage deadlier battles with fewer resources and without the benefit of HUD or UI in Ranger mode. The odds are bad and the stakes are high — do you have what it takes to save what's left of the world?
cool game...great scary game...I am a huge Horror genre gamer & I must admit that this game has definitely impressed me & has some of the best gameplay I have experienced in this genre since the likes of the Resident Evil series, Dead Space series, & Manhunt!
Who would have thought there'd ever come a time when desperately searching the environment for what little resources you can find to survive was your idea of relaxing? While the daylight hours may be filled with scavenging for supplies and weapons, the fact that the sun shines in the sky eases your anxiety, because you know what happens the moment it dips beyond the horizon. With the
dying light comes a host of horrors that turn the hunter into the hunted. Hoards of infected become aggressive and increase in numbers, searching for you as you searched for weapons to kill them just hours before. But the infected aren't even the most frightening threat. There's something else out there that lurks in the darkness, a more sinister predator that stalks its prey. You are that prey.
Set in a vast and dangerous open world, Dying Light drops you in the middle of a waking nightmare in a first-person survival horror experience that will have your heart pounding and adrenaline pumping the second night falls. During the day, you're free to roam the expansive urban environment to scavenge for supplies and craft the weapons you need to defend yourself against the victims of a vicious outbreak. A variety of melee weapons, including knives, bats, axes, sledgehammers and more, are at your disposal, as well as guns and other firepower. The sizeable crafting system enables you to create a slew of more powerful, more potent weapons and equipment with specialized ammunition. You'll need every weapon you can lay your hands on to survive the night — when the infected roam free and the night-loving predators begin their hunt. Whether you're tracking prey or evading predators, you can seamlessly leap between buildings, grapple up walls and pounce on enemies with free running movement. With breathtaking visuals and immersive gameplay, powered by Chrome Engine 6, you'll begin to fear the night right along with your character. But your only chance is to face the dying light and use every ounce of wit, skill and courage you have to survive until morning comes.
Amazing game!...Greatest Horror Game...One of the most useful techniques you will utilize is the ability to melee opponents after sending them into a dazed state by firing your weapon at a corresponding location in their body (for instance, by causing an enemy to topple over, you may proceed to crush their head with your foot).
Worth it...I love the idea of making zombie game cool instead scary....Aside from this Sunset Overdrive is set in an open world that you are free to roam around in as you choose, doing any combination of side-missions and challenges in whatever order you wish to, including re-playing any mission, challenge, or side-mission later for bonus rewards....I bought it during black Friday for a great price and I definitely enjoyed playing this game!
A sprawling metropolis in the not-so-distant future. Premise: A catastrophic event has left the city in ruins and most of its inhabitants are either dead or have been transformed into horrifying mutants. For most people, being dropped down into these kinds of circumstances would mean certain death.

Good thing you're not like most people.
Dive into the open-world shooter of Sunset Overdrive, and prove that you've got what it takes to survive catastrophe. With a knack for traversing the ruined city with hyper agility, it's a simple matter to survive postapocalyptic conditions. When it comes to the mutants, not only are you escaping their transformation, but you've found your true calling — mutant destroyer. A fully loaded arsenal of overpowered weapons back you up and make it totally clear that the end of days is just the beginning for you. It's your turn to star in this end-of-the-world storyline.
Love it....Some scary dinosaurs, nothing too crazy....I love the fact that it includes the story line of all the movies ( with a Lego spin on it of course ) it brought back memories of watching the movies with my dad.
For centuries before man, dinosaurs ruled the world. When an asteroid wiped them from existence, it seemed they would remain fossils, never to return. Until John Hammond and his scientists found a way to return the prehistoric creatures to their former glory. Unfortunately, his dream of a dinosaur-themed amusement park experienced a bit of hiccup before it could be opened to the public. Now, his vision is a reality, and you have the opportunity to travel to Isla Nublar to enjoy an adventure millions of years in the making. Featuring the full LEGO treatment,
LEGO Jurassic World brings you the dinosaurs like you've always imagined.
Get ready to experience the thrills, excitement and action of Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World in full LEGO form with LEGO Jurassic World. Re-live and experience the storylines and key moments of the four films on an all-new LEGO adventure that's 65 million years in the making. Explore the expansive — and dangerous — grounds of Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna, and choose from 20 dinosaurs, including Raptors, Triceratops, Compy and a T. Rex, to wreak havoc. Collect amber and experiment with DNA, just like John Hammond's scientists, to create your own original dinosaurs. Welcome to Jurassic Park.
Great game....There are some great storyline locations that are very scary, an amusement park, a swamp, etc....Cant wait for flesh eating zombie excitment and new levels and players and weapons... sounds like nothin will be the same until this game comes out.....
I personally loved it....Wonderful graphics and story,amazing shock horror!...TWISTS IN THE STORY: There are few twists that you may be able to predict, but others I guarantee you will not see coming, especially in the end.
Synopsis If you thought the nightmare was over, think again. The madness of isolation and the reality at hand are one and the same as engineer Isaac Clarke returns for another blood-curdling adventure in the sequel to the critically acclaimed
Dead Space. The terror of being hunted by the government and haunted by a dead lover merge into a single, cohesive paralyzing emotion — but you have to persevere despite the creeping paranoia of dementia and the grotesquery slouching within every shadow. The Necromorphs are ripping the massive city to pieces and if you're going to survive "The Sprawl", you'll have to get desperate in order to last in
Dead Space 2.
Isaac Clarke isn't free of the terror of his situation, but don't worry — it's about to get worse. You'll have to seize opportunity by the throat if you're going to survive being hunted by the government and withstand visions of a dead girlfriend. Equip yourself with the tools to decimate and eviscerate the horrors surrounding you, like improved telekinesis, trip mines or even hull breaches to suck those things back into the dead of space where they belong. It won't be a walk in the park, though. In fact, you'll experience "The Sprawl" like never before in zero gravity with full 360° movement, destroying creatures in new weightless combat and unique, physics-based puzzles. Don't fret, you can share the loneliness of space — and the Necromorphs — with friends online in skirmishes to see if anyone really can hear you scream in space.
I love it....Nothing really scary or to graphic...Garden Ops is a 10 round defense of a series of gardens and it is the only psuedo campaign you have but, it is a good way to get familiar with the mechanics of the game.
Your garden has saved you once already from a massive horde of fun-loving zombies in the original
Plants vs. Zombies. Those creepy, brain-seeking beings jumped the fence at the edge of your yard, limped toward your house and met their match — your loyal yet incredibly unlikely army of petaled and leafy friends. Now the tattered monsters are back for more. Try your hand at ultimate
garden warfare — and sow the seeds of victory once and for all.
The eternal struggle between plants and zombies rages on. In this fast-paced third-person shooter, you choose between Zombies or Plants, and mercilessly beat up on the opposite team with the multitude of weapons at your disposal. Explosives, landmines...nothing is out of bounds in this battle royale. Customize Zombies and Plants alike with hundreds of unique items and a huge variety of new abilities. Duke it out on more than 10 dazzling multiplayer and cooperative battlefields. Battle it out in 24-player online combat or team up with up to three of your friends and annihilate the enemy in four-player online co-op. Experience the zombie-zapping excitement on your Xbox One with exclusive modes, including split-screen offline co-op and Boss Mode with SmartGlass and Kinect gameplay that allow you to take down the enemy from Crazy Dave's RV or the Zomboss' blimp. Haven't you ever wondered what it's like to be a sunflower tasked with eliminating the undead once and for all?
Fun FPS...Scary game but not as scary as original Xbox 360 version of the game...Throw in a dab of gory, guts, and blood and gets addicting slashing demons up and glory kills can sometimes be humorous even depending on how you are lined up on a monster when you activate a glory kill.
