pretty damn spooky to me!
to the gameplay and as with all AITD games, it's very much about
exploration and adventure. Much crossing items with others to
form the magic key or trying to get a set of power switches
in the right combination to turn on the lights are bound to
show up somewhere. Unlike the originals though, you can't expect
to be clutching a shotgun. Instead you're armed only with your
fists and legs as well as a handy torch that plays an essential
part in exploring the dark mansion.
before you scream at the developers, take note that the UV light
from the torch does a good job of cooking the head on any zombie
(Mmm tastes like chicken). There's a lot still unknown about
AITD4 and no doubt more information will surface as the months
roll steadily by. The developers don't plan on letting the game
out of their sight until they are happy that it does the job
intended, this could mean the October release date might end
up a little shaky.
such worries surround the choice of locale in the fourth incarnation,
it's not as if we haven't seen enough haunted mansions to last
a lifetime. Or for that matter zombies, 'mutated humans' as
they prefer to be called. However like it or not Speedy3D will
keep its eye open and cast upon the publishers, constantly waiting
for more news. Expect a review before 2001, we hope.
