Hell Night review

Hell Night - short and tense

Hell Night should have been brought here to America, but it wasn't. Luckily, you can still play it in English if your Playstation can play PAL games.

Story. This is a neo-Tokyo game setting. You explore abandoned parts of the underground capital trying to escape. The game is an adventure in running away from some kind of terrible creature from a lab. You meet various characters and some can join your party. If the monster gets you, you may lose your companion, leaving room in your party for another person. You have a map in the game and if you keep the girl alive, then you can see the monster in the radar.

Mood. Hell Night is eerie. You are not alone in the world, but you may as well be. The NPCs are lifeless and do not move. Even your companions come and go (unless you're careful). But the best way to describe Hell Night is tense. There's always the same monster lurking somewhere. It's hard to avoid at times and just plain annoying sometimes.

Graphics & Control. Not spectacular. Most of the game takes place in a 3-D world where you have 1st person control. This mode is where the monster comes out, but there is nothing you can do except open doors and hide in 3-D mode. Search mode is when you enter a room. The game becomes sort of like a point-n-click except you can't move.

Puzzles. Not challenging. Pretty straightforward.

Ending(s). Hell Night has multiple endings depending on which character you have with you. I thought the endings were weak, but then again, it's a short game.

More. Hell Night can be beaten in one serious sitting or maybe two casual plays. The tasks are very simple. Avoiding the monster is the only thing you must do. However, it does a good job making you feel very tense about being stalked.

Hell Night is hard to find in great condition. If you want a copy, it will probably cost about $40-50. I don't believe it is a must play game, but it will keep you on the edge of your seat for at least five hours. If you like tension similar to Resident Evil, you should see about playing Hell Night.
