Product Description

Platform: Nintendo Wii

Two years ago at Leafmore High, a group of young teenagers were trapped inside their school and hunted by monsters that had been released by the maniac principal. Some of them survived that terrible night, while most others perished. The survivors have since picked up their lives and joined college. But all is not right at Fallcreek University... Strange black flowers have suddenly sprung up everywhere on campus. While experimenting with these flowers in class, a dangerous substance was discovered that induces strange but vivid dreams. A handful of students soon find out that there is more to the flowers than anyone could have expected. When the seeds finally germinate, a bad trip suddenly turns into a horrible reality...

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good April 4, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I didn't expect much from Obscure: The Aftermath, mainly because I wasn't too thrilled with the first Obscure game (released what seems like ages ago) and the fact that the game carries a budget price tag. Well, you definitely get your money's worth with Obscure: The Aftermath, which for those who are unfamiliar with the first game, is a co-op survival horror excursion. The story picks up where the first game left off, finding familiar characters now in college, and once again haunted by horiffic forces at work. The Wii version of the game doesn't look bad one bit, considering this is a pretty budget priced release. The character models and lighting effects are well done, and the environments are well detailed. The game's music score is haunting as well, but the real meat and potatoes of the game is the co-op gameplay that really enhances what would otherwise have been a generic survival horror trip. The few flaws that hurt Obscure: The Aftermath mostly lie within the game's combat system, which doesn't always work out well. Not to mention that the game's story isn't much to look at, and the voice acting is beyond atrocious. Also, the game is quite short (you can finish the game in one sitting if you so desired), and your AI controlled partner isn't always the brightest brain in the bunch either. For the Wii version of Obscure, there are some Wii-specific features, but nothing really substancial. Flaws aside though, Obscure: The Aftermath is a surprisingly good survival horror yarn that delivers the goods, and the budget price tag warrants a look at the very least.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's not Resident Evil, but it is fun. April 16, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First, I'm going to warn you... this game is not Resident Evil 4. Or RE 3 or 2. It sits somewhere between Resident Evil 1 and Silent Hill, in a weird teen movie purgatory where stereotypes are elevated to some kind of saintly status.

It's also really fun.

Basically, think of teen slasher films, toss in a bunch of dialogue and text with witty and humorous college/music/sex/drug/movie references and you've got a good idea of the game's mentality. A bunch of kids that survived a previous mad scientist experiments are brought together for round two. The college they are attending is besieged with a black flower that causes epic hallucinations and then turns its victims into monsters. The characters move throughout the story solving environmental puzzles, a la Resident Evil Zero. Typical survival horror, but with teens.

Pros:
==> Two-player co-op gameplay. A second player can drop into the game at any time. I spend most of my time on this game playing multi-player and find it very enjoyable.
==> Good graphics with a moody art style that communicates the feel of the game very appropriately. There are better looking games on the Wii, but there are far more games that look a lot worse than Obscure: The Aftermath.
==> Six playable characters, each with their own unique skills important to solving puzzles. One character can climb around, another is strong, another is a hacker, one picks locks, etc.
==> Enjoyable and accessible puzzles. Some are challenging, some are obscure, but you usually won't get stuck for very long.
==> Linear gameplay and story. I think this is a good thing, because the action keeps chugging along and you rarely spend much time wandering aimlessly trying to figure out what to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two player survival horror May 22, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a TWO player survival horror game. This sort of genre usually has awkward game-play for single player, so I wasn't expecting much from a two player rendition. I was pleasantly surprised! This game has one of the best implementations of a 3rd person camera angle view of any video game. The camera centers on one player at a time with that player controlling the pan and tilt. Camera control can be taken or given at any time. A power struggle didn't develop over the camera because this game has you working together as a team. This game isn't multiplayer so two people can happen to play at the same time, it's co-operative and you play the multiplayer because it's more enjoyable that way; it's social.

The Graphics are superb. Environments are highly detailed with terrific use of light. Flashlights actually illuminate rather than creating an opaque glow. The background doesn't turn into sudden jet black outside the flashlight beam. The game is very linear. Background ambiance such as people talking in other rooms and shadows of people cast on windows helps you forget that a little. There are many cut scenes, though the rag doll movements of characters are a blemish. The story is fast paced, unfortunately it's very short (10 hours of gameplay).

Some of the puzzles were good, some were lame, none were bad. There was some pointless Wiimote shaking, but it wasn't excessive.

Combat is challenging and not too frustrating. There was surprising depth despite the simplicity. In the woods, one of us fought while the other held the flashlight and roles quickly reversed when a monster snuck up from behind. Swinging left and right builds up a combo, but in tight areas, swinging up and down ensures that we aren't whacking each other in the back of the head.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly good Wii horror game.
Kind of boring and as the titles says the puzzles or riddles are a bit "obscure." But I played the game in co-op mode so that might be the reason. Read more

It's to dark and I didn't realize I have to use the nunchaku. I don't like game that you have to use the nunchaku. If I had known that I would not have ordered.
