I love horror, so I’m very critical of games that label themselves scary. After all, how do you show you love something if you’re not trying to destroy it?
This is why Syndrome failed to impress me. Though I didn’t give it a ‘bad’ score, there certainly wasn’t enough going on to earn a good one. Oversensitive monsters, pitch black environments, and the now-tired Amnesia formula of “hide for your life” just can’t quite cut it.
