Do you remember "Alone in the dark" game? that was a very unique game in survival horror genre and not like any other games of the genre. Now, 2Dark that made by the original developer of "Alone in the dark" Frédérick Raynal, is also a very "unique" horror game that you never played anything like that and has its own character. But this uniqueness doesn't mean that the game has not weaknesses, because it has some important issues on gameplay mechanics and balance. In the end i must say that if you are fan of horror genre and you want to experience a unique game with almost nice story telling, 2Dark could be one of your good choices.

2Dark has a lot of potential, and the premise is exciting. The developers dared to delve into a dark plot, and that bravery should be applauded. The title doesn't fail in any particular way, but it also doesn't meet its full potential. The gameplay felt overly complicated and could've benefited from a "less is more" approach. Some improvements to the inventory system also could've made gamers feel more in control of the protagonist. It would've been amazing if the game had managed to remain focused on some quick and tense action sequences, rather than spending so much time on tedious tasks, which interrupted the sense of immersion.
2Dark is a compelling horror game that tackles some truly horrific subject matter. But cheap deaths and uneven level design hold it back from being truly great.
2Dark is a breath of 90s style horror for the modern era.
In summary, 2Dark is an atmospheric experience, and while it isn't an out-and-out horror game, the game blends elements of survival horror with the main gameplay chiefly revolving around sneaking in a furtive manner through levels. The atmospherics are striking, and the cartoon-like animations work well as a contrast.
Despite being a simple game, 2Dark deserves a chance from gamers who love horror titles. However, as it is a game that may not attract a lot of attention, it might be forgotten among other titles of the same genre. From its first seconds to the very end, 2Dark provides players with a spooky environment, interesting story, easy gameplay and a few good scary moments.

"...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..."
2Dark bravely portrays themes that most developers lack the guts to touch, but unfortunately, AI, UI, and Level Design problems make this game feel largely unfinished.
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.
