15 First Minutes of Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners...

15 First Minutes of Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners...

After five years crawling on the ground, Call of Cthulhu finally finished the race. It's here I'm telling you ! Nobody knows what happens to these games, wich vanish in the air and never come back, but when they're finally back at home, it's a joy. It's such a joy, we totally forgot to watch the chrono when doing this "10 First Minutes" video...

So, this video showcases the first fifteen minutes of the game, filled with a lot of cinematics and a bit of gameplay. It's worrying, sometimes glaucous, and always very dark. Lovecraft is everywhere in the game, you can feel it. There's a strange athmosphere, something weird. Fans won't be disappointed, from this point of view. And for those who would like to see how the gameplay really is in Cthulhu, just ask. It'll be my pleasure.

I spent about an hour with this game last night. Its a good game, but the graphics are about 3-4 years behind the times. Definately creepy though, and the beginning of the game (shown in this video) REALLY leads you to want to discover what happened in those 6 years you lost...especially starting with those first few minutes right after you black out!

This game reminds me of a few movies. "In the Mouth of Madness" comes to mind first.

Too bad I don't have an xbox anymore. They took way to long to get the game out.

Eurogamer gave an 8 to this one, i'll probably get it, no other survival horror coming for xbox but this one. Besides, people on the oficial forums are praising it a lot.

I'll be getting Fatal Frame 3 before this, I'll definitely rent it.

It doesn't look like a Dreamcast game, I've got it and it's amazingly atmospheric and if you've read the Lovecraft story "Shadow Over Innsmouth" you'll be gobsmacked at the detail it goes into!

I disagree that the graphics look 3-4 years behind. I think it's one of the better looking Xbox games, with detailed texture work and solid environments and characters. The art design and presentation really do the job of creating a thick, moody atmosphere.

About the game

    Moonwalker @MrWhite: Yeah i honestly had not expected that. I've always believed we would never get the impact of a Mario 64 anymore or OOT, but if we go by Edge......damn. But i'll believe that when i see it:) (13 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite That is some seriously high praise. It's lifted my anticipation through the roof. (20 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Moonwalker: Where arbitrary review scores fail is conveying any kind of context or comparison to give a sense of just how good something is. It's summaries like that that hammers the point home. (21 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Moonwalker: EDGE has always had a soft spot for nintendo anyway. (28 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Edge's conclusion is.....holy shitballs... [url] (40 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Moonwalker: Yeah, it's indicative of not only gaming culture today, but anywhere with a forum in general, sadly. (54 minutes ago)
