Official description
History is alive with tales of ghosts, specters and phantoms whose anguished cries rarely escape to the mortal plane. And rarely are the living able to commune with the dead. A late-night disturbance call leads Lazarus Jones of the Detroit Police Department to an abandoned school, the site of a gruesome multiple murder some 10 years past. What should have been a routine visit becomes a disaster of supernatural proportions when hordes of malevolent, demonic spirits and tortured souls imprisoned for eons and lusting for vengeance are accidentally unleashed. Man-made weapons will barely keep the demons at bay; only through mastery of the paranormal will Jones be able to hunt down and capture the howling fiends before they destroy the world of the living.

Features:

* Nightmarish, suspenseful storyline and cinematic visuals unite with intense 1st and 3rd-person shooter combat for an action-horror experience of the highest caliber.
* Chilling haunted and hunting gameplay-stalk, battle and capture the vengeful spirits of the undead.
* Roam freely across a vast and sinister phantasmagorical landscape. Explore macabre locales like a clandestine research lab, a sunken ship and a demon-infested swamp.
* Arm yourself with a vast array of both earthly and paranormal weapons and items, from pistols and combat shotguns to ghost lassos, spirit capture grenades and spectral goggles.
* Feed off the power of your captured phantomsÑ-acquire supernatural abilities and summon helpful spirits to assist you in your quest.
* Innovative, player-guided puzzles and tense stealth sequences extend gameplay.
