Dementium: The Ward reveiw

Although the game is yet to be released in the UK, I managed to get a US copy from play-Asia.com as I couldn't really wait for it. From the beginning it is clear that it is aimed at an adult audience; blood everywhere and a girl being dragged by her hair by a giant monstrosity set a dark and eerie tone. The graphics are very impressive for the DS with visuals reminiscent of silent hill, and gameplay is smooth using the stylus to look around and the d-pad to move. I found the music was most unsettling and certainly the best feature of the game provided you wear headphones for pure immersion. Although the genre can feel a little tired at times, it is the first game of it's kind on the DS and i highly recommend it. Decent.
