A genuinely frightening experience, this scary adventure will have you running and screaming both in the game and in real life. In Home Sweet Home, you wake up in a strange abandoned place, unsure of where you are or how you got there. Wandering around with a flashlight you found, you eventually find a woman ... only to learn the hard way that she's not alive (or even human), but she's quick with a knife. While running away is always an option, it isn't always easy, because the layout of this place constantly changes. Played from the first-person perspective, and clearly inspired more by Asian horror aesthetics than Western ones, this scary, sometimes sneaky game is kind of like the beginning of Resident Evil 7 biohazard if you never got a gun and the people trying to kill you were unkillable monsters. As a result, you spend a lot of time hiding from the scary things, running away when they find you, and wondering where to go next so you can end this nightmare.
As freaky as this may be, though, it can be frustrating, especially if you were hoping to get a weapon like a gun to blow away the monsters chasing you. The game's controls can also be a bit too imprecise, and there's no way to adjust them, so you'll have to adjust after playing for a bit. Also, the subtitles were cut off at the bottom of the screen, rendering them unreadable. While this was also something you couldn't adjust, you won't notice it after a while ... mostly because you'll be too busy screaming. If you're in the mood to run for your life in a constantly changing maze that wants to kill you as much as the thing that's chasing you, Home Sweet Home will frighten you to your core.
