Quotes

Rick Trager: You know, I'm a bit worried how much time you've been spending with Father Martin, I know, I hope you haven't been letting him confuse you with all his "holier than thou" bible thumping. Uh, no offense to the man, but I sometimes worry he might just be a little bit crazy.

Scary, awesome and great atmosphere
11 July 2018 | by albunaxSee all my reviews

I have played this game over and over and i still gets scared sometimes. The music, atmosphere and graphics are awesome. Some characters are so scary as well. The scares comes when you don't think they will not come. The best horror game i ever played besides Amnesia The Dark Descent.
