Nice conclusion. You nailed what playing Code V feels like. And Kudos for mentioning the Bandersnatches. They were terrifying enemies in every respect, not least because they made you waste ammo.

Thanks, Zipp. I think whenever I try to review a horror game, I try to convey the sense of horror it inspires. I think I did this well with my RE4 review, too, but that was an altogether different kind of horror and therefore much easier to write about. I'm still not sure whether I got everything across the way I wanted, but it's done now and I'm strongly disinclined to rewrite things completely once they're done.

Anyway, there is a downside to this kind of mechanic of mine. Many games share a similar kind of horror, so I'd be tempted to review others in this (or other) series the same way. But doing so would get dull, so now I've put myself in a bit of a bind. Like, I wonder what Silent Hill would be like. I sometimes think it's kind of horror is perhaps even more fitting than the way I described it here, but since I already reviewed this game that way, it sort of closes off other options. But oh well. That's a bridge I'll have to cross if I ever get there.

I agree. It is something I'll probably comment on in the tournament. The style seems a little worn out. But I still like the areas you choose to focus on.
