this game made me crazy. it was really really hard. everything was hard, like puzzles? puzzles was really hard. like fighting? shooting? it was hard because u don't have enough ammo. and map? who needs map. u must get lost and get more crazy/ let the cthulu possess you. it's really great game, but hard hard hard. i'm no more surprised why no one talks about this game. BECAUSE nobody plays it until finish. nobody will play this game except me. i played it fully like a cowboy and solve all the problems in dark corners of the earth.

Overall, Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is a fun game that is full of twists, turns and incredibly wonderful scary surprises. It's got a great atmosphere which is sustained by dark and grainy graphics, chilling sound effects and an incredibly improbable storyline that is treated properly as to suspend reality from creeping in and ruining your experience.

Overall, even though the game isn’t perfect, CoC provides a great storyline, a creepy as hell environment, and a survival horror title that really did mean “survival” and “horror” to me for the atmosphere, the setting, and additions which kept me not only immersed for hours on end, but also on the edge of my seat most of the time and literally a little scared to go around the corner in certain tense areas.

The game ranks you based on how quickly you reached the end, how often you saved your progress, and other factors, in case you want to pay another visit to Innsmouth and its outskirts. So there's some value in revisiting the adventure--but your first time playing through Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is liable to leave a lasting impression no matter what. If H.P. Lovecraft were alive today, we think he'd approve. The Old Ones told us so.
