She is going to catch a cold before she ever reaches that house.

If you can get through the game's snail-paced presentation, you will find yourself playing one of the most atmospheric horror games ever made. You play as Laura, one of the survivors of a commercial flight that crashes down into the Canadian mountain range. It's bad enough that these survivors found themselves helpless in the middle of nowhere, they also have to fend themselves against the alien lifeforms that are lurking everywhere around them. The game brilliantly combines first/third person exploration gameplay segments with a role playing game influenced gunfight battle system whenever Laura is attacked by the enemies. D.2 is quite morbid and does not shy away from allowing its characters to die some horrific deaths. The game understands how to make the player feel completely isolated and hopeless while allowing the game to still remain compelling and fun.

LIBRARY STATUS: 5 out of 5
