So 2Dark is really a story with two sides; it’s either excelling from its attention to detail, or failing because of its heavy-handedness. I’d love to say that this is a nuanced story that explores the depths and complexities of its subject matter. But really it’s a calloused story surrounded by nuanced and sophisticated gameplay. All in all, 2Dark is a rewarding experience, so long as your leave your sensitivities behind.
"...while out in the woods on a camping trip, Mr. Smith and his family run in to a few...well...let's call them snafus..."
The game became repetitive, frustrating, and uninteresting all too quickly, and each level takes less than an hour to complete unless you run into a bug or a figurative wall when it comes to progression.
2Dark shows that the creator of Alone in the Dark is still full of good ideas. Even if this game seems like a cute old-school title, it hides a terrific survival game which does nothing like the modern ones, even if it can get a bit buggy. In any case 2Dark is a rather hardcore title, which should largely satisfy lovers of stealth and survival horror games.
Despite these imperfections, however, this can be considered the new launch pad for Frédérick Raynald that we want to see finally return to full load.

2Dark is the latest creation from the mind of Frederick Raynal, the creator of Alone in The Dark, and his new studio, Gloomywood. It’s a stealth-horror-adventure game with survival elements.
2Dark felt like a confusing and difficult mess that was hard to get into.
I got from the game what you wanted, and it's a grim story with all the consequences. The game, which is struggling with the gameplay, Yes, the basic mechanics do not work, except perhaps stealth, stealth and story only because of what I went through the game to the end, to take her, I certainly do not suggest, for the same amount, but for 500 rubles is quite.

2Dark offers exciting moments for each mission, just don’t let it frustrate you. I recommend that if you get the game, complete and finish it. A very compelling and weird sick story for a 2.5D game despite all the bugs, sound glitches, and frustration we encountered, we were still able to finish the game and enjoy it through the end.
