"DO NOT INSTALL"

March 31, 2013  |  By nolongertrust

 |  Version: Penumbra: Overture 1.0.3

Pros

NONE at all

Cons

ALL & everything

Summary

I have used CNET for a long time & never a problem till now. I chose custom for installation & chose not to install extra toolbars & such yet it still installed things I did not want & it did'nt even tell me about. They are viruses & malware. Took me 1.5 hours to remove from my computer. You will get "Pricepeep" "Strongvault" "Googlechrome" Toolbars,Etc. & addons to Mozilla You do not want! "WARNING' BEWARE" "VIRUS"!

"Is it a game?"

March 03, 2011  |  By ZxBrad

 |  Version: Penumbra: Overture 1.0.3

Pros

Great, scary, mysterious, creepy, and claustrophobic.
It takes on a new role of survival horrors, causing weapons to be very very very limited. Weapons in the game, wont kill but knock out your opponent for a short time. Story and puzzles are GREAT!

Cons

nothing, this is the type of survival horror, true horror fans are looking for,

Summary

I Like Bagels

"Great game... needs a killer graphics card to run well!"

December 26, 2009  |  By machinegoblin

 |  Version: Penumbra: Overture 1.0.3

Pros

This is an awesome game, very atmospheric and spooky...Think of a cross between Silent Hill and Half Life (sorta). A thinking man's FPS Survival Horror, it has heaps of clever environmental and situational puzzles to overcome and plenty of chills...

Cons

Unfortunately you need a killer graphics card to play this game, as it has a butt load of graphical errors and issues (texture and shading issues as well as system lock ups and freezes!) if you don't...

Summary

Very well done, atmospheric, spooky... plenty of clever puzzles and challenges to get the brain ticking. Well set up inventory interface to select and use inventory plus a pretty much pick up and play control method which slightly changes the existing wsad and mouse control method. Well done though... Plenty of tension and suspense (lights going out, strange noises, vision blurr from fear when attacked!) everything about it works really well if you can get it to run smoothly on your PC (forget it on your Laptop unless its set up specifically for games). A great game once you get it rolling... Definately worth downloading.
