Editors' Review


As far as we're concerned, the mark of a good computer game is our inability to stop playing it even when we have other things we need to be doing. By that metric, Born Into Darkness is a very good game indeed. Although we've seen plenty of similar games, the mystery aspect of Born Into Darkness kept us engaged for much longer than we expected it to.

First things first: To download the game, you must download the Free Ride Player, a game manager that will then download Born Into Darkness. It will also download three other games without asking and put a couple of uninvited icons on your desktop. Combine that with the video advertising that must be endured before the game starts and the banner ads that surround the game during play, and playing Born Into Darkness is a bit of a pain. But if you can put up with all of that, you'll find an intriguing hidden-object adventure. The premise of the game is a bizarre mixture of vampirism and Christianity; Amber, who is the curator of a museum--and is also a vampire--sets out with an assistant curator to locate the Shroud of Lazarus, which can supposedly cure her vampirism. The game starts out in the museum, with players searching for pieces of a ladder so that they can reach a malfunctioning light in the storage room, and progresses to the Middle East, Europe, and beyond. The object searches and built-in puzzles are fun and challenging, and plenty of in-game guidance is provided for new players. Overall, we found Born Into Darkness to be quite enjoyable to play; we couldn't wait to see what would happen or where Amber and her assistant would end up next.

Born Into Darkness installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly.

    I played this game with my mother in law during Friday night, on Saturday all the family started playing it, each one in his laptop :)
    this is a free game so it doesn't cost anything.
