It is just another haunted house and this one is not very amusing.

Try as it might, Infliction: Extended Cut can’t match the mighty P.T. when it comes to playing with your mind or providing scares, but it has a good go at it. For a game largely developed by just one man, that’s a pretty great achievement.
Infliction nails most of the traditions horror tropes and does well to create a genuinely intriguing and anxiety-inducing atmosphere with is detail design and ever-changing environments. However, the lack of any real memorable scares and countless scripted deaths that get old quickly paired with recurring performance issues consistently break the immersion that was so brilliantly created.
Those who are willing to take the time comb through Infliction: Extended will find a horror experience will leave you afraid of the dark.
I’ve had a long-standing fascination with horror from an early age, maybe too early. By the start of high school, I had been equally terrified and enthralled by films such as Candyman and Creepshow, had read The Shining and was devouring any horror novel that came my way. In 1999 Silent Hill dropped me right into a horror story, and I’ve loved horror games ever since. This week I’ve taken a shaky stroll through the psychological horror house of Infliction: Extended Cut.
A little P.T. here, a little Layers Of Fear there, a little Project Zero there - the mix in Infliction is just perfect. Clean graphics, bombastic sound and a good portion of psycho-horror let the debut album Infliction become a top 10 title of the genre. It is to be hoped that developer Clinton McCleary will remain true to the horror genre and provide us with even more atmospheric games of this kind. So. lights out! Headphones on! And off into the darkest, psychic abysses!

While some of the game’s mechanics, such as your limited defensive options, come across as a little half-baked, the oppressive atmosphere and genuine chills Infliction: Extended Cut delivers make it a standout survival horror title on a system that’s somewhat starved of them. Though many players will probably burn through the game’s five-hour story in just a few sittings, the New Game Plus Mode also does a good job of adding replay value with its revamped puzzles and more challenging gameplay.
Infliction: Extended Cut looks great on consoles and tells a good story but is hampered by its repetitive gameplay and lack of variety.
