Final Breakdown


One of the year's most fun and great game with tons of elements to fulfill a whole santa bag. One sign of warning, the content in the game is not for the faint of heart as the graphics are extremely gory, strong language is used, and there is some nudity. The four acts will keep almost even the most hardcore gamer playing for a while. The various weapons and well balanced gameplay are the most attractive features keeping the game value high.


Wow is the word that sums up what Nocturne looks like, the most impressive features of graphics with the most advanced lighting effects, special effects, and volumetric fog effects are used to the best degree. Even better, features within features are in the graphics engine providing one of the most spectacular looking games of all time.

Sound and Music:

Sound effects are used only to convey the most appropriate situation with the most hell raising and frightening experience in combination with the best looking graphics provide the most scary game ever seen and heard. The ambient sounds are used to the best extent and the voice acting is five star.

Multiplayer: N/A

None, as it is appropriate.

AI and Difficulty:

The game is one hell of a challenging experience and is also fun to top. The AI has very sophisticated algorithms that make it quite a unique experience and surprising experience. The game only has one difficulty level, however, and the game is extremely difficult, so the impatient gamer may not like to this.

Controls and Interface:

If there is one problem, it is in the camera angles. The camera angles can provide a very hell raising experience if the angles are not learned very quickly. Another problem is the issue of a massive install and long load times. Controlling in the game itself is quite easy with a FPS setup.


This is one hell of a game. The most action and adventure one gamer could ask for, the game provides one back hair raising experience with immersive sound, graphics, and driven gameplay. Only marred by camera angles, large install, and long load times.
