Visceral dialed back a bit on the outrageous action movie vibe, but added a few new wrinkles to the franchise's trademark combat and multiplayer. Even with that shift in focus and a different studio behind it all, Battlefield Hardline doesn't feel all that different from previous efforts.
Are you looking for something to chill your bones? Something to make the shadows seem that much longer and the night that much darker? Something to put the fear back in you? Then you definitely won't want to play Slender: The Arrival.
