Alone In The Dark 4: The New Nightmare Spiral House / Atari 2001

This followup to the classic Alone In The Dark Trilogy uses nice-looking modern 3d graphics and brings the series into a present day setting also. You again play supernatural private eye Edward Carnby as well as anthropologist Aline Cedrac who are both going to Shadow Island (he to investigate a friend's death off the coast and she to aid a professor in the translation of some tablets left by a tribe of Native Americans called the Akbanis) when their plane crashlands and they end up separated. Aline's parts in the game are more puzzle-oriented and take longer than Edward Carnby's who has more action sequences. They both have a radio to communicate with each other and a flashlight to navigate the dark areas (which provides creepy effects). The static shots in past games are still there to provide cinematic angles but also hinders gameplay especially in determining if a character is aligned properly to do a task. This game being a console port also results in a few problems like in saving games you may have to redo sequences in a room that you already did before you died. There are also annoying bugs in gameplay which add to the player's frustration. For fans of the series and survival horror games in general though, it's recommended. In 2005, a film adaptation was released called Alone in the Dark by infamous director Uwe Boll. It was a direct sequel to this game but the movie has little-to-no relation to the original trilogy of games from the 1990s. The movie contains plot elements that directly contradict those in The New Nightmare.
