Fear the Solitude
on April 14, 2014
Slender: The Arrival is not what I expected it to be. It branches off from what the original Slender: The Eight Pages did and gave the lore an actual solid story. What I truly loved about this game was the sheer beauty of it. If you don't have a high-end computer, don't buy the game; the visuals are beautifully detailed and taking away from that is a big let down.
The horror in the game is fresh, gripping, and absolutely bone chilling. Whether you be walking through dark, lonely halls, trying to escape a burning forest, or meandering your way through an old barren house, the player never feels safe. Collectible items placed sporadically about the environments give the story more depth. The scares are original and breathtaking in their blood-curdling might. The only true down-side, however, is that the game is only two hours long on medium difficulty settings. Slender: The Arrival is a fantastic horror, despite its short-lived experience.
