There seems to be a recent deluge of shooters with horror themes.

The interplay involved with using each of the psychic powers in the best combat situation appears promising - but, with the exception of the squad-based mechanic, isn't really anything new. Roughly comparable in gameplay function to Deus Ex's Biomods, System Shock's and BioShock's mods etc. If used correctly, it can make the game very strategic, depends on how well they can pull it off.

One thing's for certain - the game's premise of "evil creature wanting to take over the earth and only you can stop it" isn't terribly inspiring - at least, not for me. I'm adopting a wait-and-see approach for this game.
