We actually played the first Obscure
game and the similarities between it and the teen horror flicks of the late 90's (The Faculty, Disturbing Behavior
) were all well and good, just the game itself wasn't very fun. Nor was it very good. Regardless, we're getting a sequel to the game in Q4 of this year.
Still, the news of the franchise seeing a sequel on the Wii manages to excite us just a little. We are survival-horror fans by nature, even if it is "whiny-teen survival horror," so the prospect of attacking enemies and navigating a dangerous environment with the Wiimote
is a welcome one. We'll just have to wait until we see more before passing judgment ...
