Product Description

Set in the 1930s, Nocturne features gangster action. Visual effect technology creates a world full of terror and suspense. Players assume the role of the Stranger, a secret agent of the Spookhouse Investigation Bureau that President Roosevelt has created to combat supernatural forces plaguing the nation. You will be sent to investigate one of four locations--cemeteries in France, ancient castles in Germany, an evil Texas town, or crime-ridden Chicago. Each mission has a unique storyline and cinematography.

From the Manufacturer

It is 1933, and in the shadowed world around you there exists an ungodly evil: werewolves, vampires, ghouls, and flesh-eating zombies that wait just outside the light's unlocked door to feed upon innocence. There also exist guardians of the good and just, tireless vigilantes capable of tracking down this evil and turning it upon itself. You are one of them. And you hunt, as your vile quarry does, by night.

This game is a little known gem, and I mean that in a relative way. Compared to say some of the other 'survival' games it is indeed a lesser known game. This is one of those cases though where its a pleasant treasure waiting to be discovered. When I bought it in 2000 I just wanted a game for my new PC. I paid out the rear for it b/c it looked cool, and I was not let down. My understanding of what this game truly is/was at the time didn't come until recently.
I played this game for a bit when I first got it 4 years ago, but put it down for other titles within a few months. I then forgot about it although I revisited it now and then. It wasn't until a few months ago though(new year of 2004) that I truly saw the beauty of this game. Even 4 years later the graphics, mood, and lighting all come together for a very impressive atmosphere. Thats just an added bonus though, let me get to the best parts of this game:
-First, its blended well. Like another reviewer stated the puzzles make sense, and aren't ludicrous. Series like say oh, RESIDENT EVIL suffer from a rediculousness factor when it comes to puzzles. Show me one actual police station like one in RE2, its stupid. In Nocturne the puzzles and tasks are not overdone, and make sense in a supernatural sort of way. They are FUN tasks, not laborous back tracking BORING ones like in a certain game I have mentioned a few lines back.
-Switch it onto 'mature' mode and watch the blood fly everywhere. Case in point: Take the shovel at the beginning of the Zombie Town just outside the church and proceed to bash the next 120 zombies upside the head. Heads will roll and hilarity will ensue, especially when you beat the Zombie Cows with that shovel....or the fire axe.

Nocturne has recieved some rather harsh criticisms, such as its control interface and screen camera angles. However, I believe that these elements enhance the game significantly. Everyone's already used to the Doom/Quake/Half-Life/Unreal controls. Nocturne uses the same controls, but the perspective is entirely 3rd person, rather than 1st. The "akward" camera shots contributes to the spookiness of the game. I'm a little tired of hearing people complain about the monsters ambushing the hero just as he's leaving screen's field of view. Personally, I thought that was a great idea on the part of the deigners. We're all well versed in dealing with baddies from a certain perspective (again, Doom/Quake/etc.) The difficulty of the controls and the unusual perspectives changes this from another shoot-em-up to something much more eeire and spooky. Wasn't that the point of the game to begin with?
The graphics are phenomenal, the story lines solid, and the voices are okay. My biggest complaint is that the ending for each chapter seemed abridged. There wasn't enough closure (action, dialog, video, whatever). Aside from that, Nocturne is a great game, that definately delivers the chills. And, unlike most 1st person shoot-em-ups, Nocturne takes more than two days to complete.
So if you're looking for the next Quake or Unreal, don't buy this. If you're looking for a game with substance and story (in addition to a belly full of killing), then I highly recommend Nocturne.

I played Nocturne when it first came out a few years ago, and was stunned by a perfect game. It was simply amazing. The cutting-edge graphics (even by today's standards), the sound, the atmosphere, the story (like the X-files in the 40's) the characters (mmmm... Svetlana...) the unbelievable amounts of stunning art work, and generally well thought out adventures in the creepiest places imaginable. It is ABSOLUTELY the scariest game I have ever played, bar none - I actually yelled and fell off my chair from fright more than once (which was a first)! Then, after recommending it to everyone I knew, the reviews began to hit the gaming magazines, and they were horrid!!! Bunch of wussies! Did you even play the game? The view is constantly changing throughout the game (like scenes in a movie where you might be looking down upon the character, and then abruptly the angle switches as you move around) which can make it tricky to aim your weapon at the plentiful and deadly creatures, but it certainly didn't ruin the game, like so many over-paid critics complained... It actually won "Coaster of the year" from a major PC Game magazine, meaning it is only fit to set your drink on the CD ROM... Whatever! Whoever decided that should be fired - that is irresponsible journalism, and possibly caused many people to not buy the rare gem of a game. I would have paid the money for just the first vampire story, but they give you 4 long complete adventures. If you are a fan of horror adventure, or want to be put into an atmosphere creepiness beyond imagination, do yourself a favor and buy this most wonderful game. And remember - Svetlana......

Picture "Film Noir" meets "Night of the Living Dead" and you'll have a pretty good idea about this game. What is the Spookhouse, and who or what is the mysterious Stranger? Not just a "shoot-em-up" although there's plenty of that as well. Kill a wide assortment of evil creatures, undead and otherwise. Graphics and sound are phenomenal but, be warned, it takes a real high-end system to make this game run. Pretty graphic violence. Mildly diabolical voice acting.
