A Cthulhu game published by Bethesda and Ubisoft that didn’t suck, well surprisingly yes! Call of Cthulhu dark corners of the earth faced a long development cycle, and though it didn’t see much success, the sheer terror of its gameplay cannot be denied.
As a private detective who travels to Innsmouth tomb to investigate a missing person’s case. Players very quickly become involved with the cosmic entities like Dagon and Cthulhu.
Though there is combat, the game relies more on sneaking and surviving and mixing an indelible and grimy atmosphere with the deepest depths of madness.
