Eldritch Hunter (Video Game Review)
There are few ideas harder to get right than H.P. Lovecraft’s creations. While many books, games and films have tried to emulate his successes, the failures easily outnumber the successes. So much so that many games often limit his influence to a visual style or internal lore over core mechanics. This is definitely the case with Eldritch Hunter, as the horrors are very killable and can be dispatched in the hundreds. You play as a lone Inquisitor trapped in a city overrun by cultists and it’s now your job to rescue the Pope via an explosive arsenal of arrows.
