just finished Obscure 2, i've gotta say it's a very nice game.
easier than Silent Hill 4, more b-list sci-fi and less scary (thankfully).
very interesting characters some of which will not go far in the game, alas!
very well done visuals and great control/camera. great sound too.
i have not played the first game, some comments/reviews on www say the first chapter is better than the second, even.
