Ive seen the vid's of this on xbox live and it looks ok to me, AITD has always been a little more niche, so it doesn't always appeal to the mass market immediatly so a comparison to RES,EVIL is a little unfair.
I say bring it on. :D

This one's definitely on my radar. I've seen and read quite a bit about it and if it lives up to what it's promising it could be a great game.

Went to a preview a week ago and it looks stunning. Easily the best looking game on the 360.

Sadly, the acting lets it down by being completely over the top and filled with swearing!

depends how they distribute it, with any luck it'll be on Steam and Direct2Drive which should push the PC sales figures further.

Well it looks like Infogrames has finally caught up with the game industry and is seriously trying to sort itself out, Alone in the dark WILL sell 2-3 million or HAS to sell 2-3 million?

I'll help contribute to that number anyway; Great game.

Looks like it could be good. Will give it a spin once I've got my current games beat.

I'll be buying it, you know, being into dark survivalist spooky stuff and all that.

I really hope they take the time to get it right though. A rushed, buggy game will just drive people away... So I'm happy to wait for as long as it takes.

...And I also hope that Infogrames reach their targets: I'd hate to see them go bust or get swallowed by EA or something.
