Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth System Requirements

With Call of Cthulhu: Depth of Madness around the corner, it is time for those not familiar with the call to take on the last title in the series, Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the earth. While this isn’t mandatory, this is the best experience you can get from this highly realistic first-person shooter that incorporates some elements stealth gameplay.

Since the graphics as somehow wacky by modern standards (the game was published in 2005 for Xbox and 2006 for PC) you can expect it to play on most reasonable PCs of 2016. You don’t really need a thoroughbred gaming PC to launch this game.

The first parts of Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth will have you escape unharmed from a prison before evading all guards and go on to do some investigation and exploration before you gather weapons and begin defending yourself.

Since it is a survival horror game, resources like ammunition will always be limited and you must use them when you have no other option. It’s more of sneaking around and avoiding confrontation until it is totally inevitable.

I, however, find the linear scripting quite limiting and might give you a pipeline story line as opposed to its peers like Alone in the Dark that give players more freedom.
