Anthology of Fear plays and feels like a horror game of ten years ago, with useless jumpscares, a lot of backtracking and a forgettable story.

Anthology of Fear is one of the most mind-numbing and unremarkable horror games that I’ve played this year. It’s nothing more than a walking simulator, with very few actual moments of tension or effective scares. Not to mention a story that only serves to frustrate and confuse. There are so many better choices out there, so I recommend steering clear of this one.

Unfortunately, Anthology Of Fear was a miss for me. It didn’t offer anything I hadn’t seen before, nor did it present itself in a way that’d catch my attention. With a lack of enemies, threats, or even jumpscares and creepy events, most of my time within the game felt empty and bland. I felt like I walked from place to place and saw the same corridors and areas. Most unfortunately, I couldn’t even finish the game. On the second videotape, I had to do a mini-game to progress, but the controls stopped working every time I got to it. I tried restarting the level and the game and played the game up until the same point to no avail.

Since my experience is limited to the Xbox version of Anthology of Fear I would have to say this game is a pass for me, mostly due to the horrendous teeth extraction and complete inability to finish the game; however, I would recommend picking up the PC version if you have a machine that will run it since it does seem to be in working order. I wouldn’t put it up there with my own short list of indie-horror greats, but it’s worth a weekend viewing.
