I guess the site and the company here would have to change its name to "Bad Old Games", BOG in short which is an interesting play on words as such in itself. I happen to have bought the whole PC set back in 2007 and even managed to play some initial stages of BW I: Rustin Parr like the first day and night in Burkitsville, but somehow didn't make any more progress after that. I watched the first Warlock movie again last year, the one starring Julian Sands as the witch, and somehow the idea of giving the BW games one more chance started to sound good. Well, I decided to use the kitchen's entrance, so to speak, for a change - I launched the BW III game this time - and it didn't take much time to notice in full that the road to this particular story lies elsewhere. Perhaps it could be at least beareable in terms of gameplay - and the lore, the story and the dread would make up for all the issues and defficiencies in this department - had it not been for the wretched tank controls, necessity to fight awkward duels with lacklustre and grotesque enemies and yet have to combat some questionable design ideas blocking your progress for no apparent reason and without a hint or clue what is wrong with your approach.
All I am saying is that I haven't played either LoF I or II, I did play >Observer< and was a bit on the fence about that, but completed that nevertheless, but here I am going to give the Bloober Team their due credit and pre-purchase the game first time in like three yeears and the first time on GOG with quite an unshakeable trust that the route they're taking to reenter the woods around Burkitsville is one of the best things that could happen to this story ( to avoid the so capitalistic word as "franchise:). And mind you - I have never been a huge fan least fanatic of the original movie, without menationing its two sequels, even though I saw that at local cinema as far as in 2000 and you might have already caught the hint that the games weren't to my liking either. Actually I have almost bought that last Saturday had it not been for my pre-paid card gotten rejected becuase I fiddled with VPN in my browser in the meantime. Finally, I spent the last decade with wargames, combat simulators and strategies and still haven't finished "The Call of Cthulhu"I bought in 2006 so one may easily infer I am not much into either adventure, walking simulators, survival or psychological horror type games.
