|The author Clive Barker, known for the popular
-Hellraiser- films and the -Books Of Blood- puts many story elements
into this game and for this adds more honor to his perpetuation. It's
based on the UT-Engine. The protagonist has contact with supernatural
forces during World War One. Subsequently he is asked by a friend whose
land estate is cursed, for help. Using ancient weapons and magic throughout,
the player gets to the bottom of the mysteries. The levels are nicely
created and the graphics present the power of the Unreal engine. Barker's
cooperation is present and will be noticable in those cool shock effects.
There's five horrifying boss characters, including four based on Jeremiah's
dead siblings. Players will have to defeat each of the evil siblings in their
individually cursed and demonic environments in order to confront the Curse
of the Undying King. There's eight spells including the destructive Skull
Storm, and eight weapons (each with secondary fire) including shotgun, Molotov
Cocktails, Tibetan War Cannon and Scythe of The Celt. Over 24 enemies include
Drinen, Howlers, Verago, Hounds of Gel'ziabar, Sleeds and Monto'-Shonoi.
Special modes include the ability to fly in the spirit worlds and a spell
called Scrye that allows players to see or hear events that are not apparent
to the naked eye to provide back story and clues. Affecting sound is actually
a vital tool to staying alive, since it may be the only indication that a
creature may be near you. All the enemies have different deathscenes which
Undying is a well done single player shooter. Whoever likes horror needs
to play this game. Sadly the game wasnt a big hit so there will be no
second part and also the promised multiplayer patch wasn't released.
