Quoted from Obscure Reviews:Check out these quotes from Obscure reviews & previews
"Judging by Obscure, a survival-horror throwback best described as Resident Evil in a high school, French developer Hydravision is stuck in 1996."
"Obscure is destined to live up to its irrelevant name; with a seriously lackluster beginning, little hype for the game itself, and voice-acting that screams "third-rate." Ignore the foibles and the occasional control failings, the so-so graphics and Resident Evil 4, and you'll have a horror title that delivers genuine scares, and tag-team terror that's as innovative as it is unexpected. Obscure is a solid outing for fans of the genre, and much more than the Sum 41 of its parts."
"...Obscure is still dissimilar enough from other horror favorites like Resident Evil and Silent Hill to warrant a pick-up by diehard genre fans. And besides, the co-op mode is almost worth the price of admission alone, while the hidden bonuses you'll receive for beating the game add even more to its overall value. Just don't expect anything too enthralling when it comes to plot advancement or puzzle solving."
"At the end of the day, Obscure is like good frosting on a slightly stale cake."
