Every game has artistic graphics. It takes an artist to put them into the game. However, the best usually have a flair, style, design DNA, or something unique to them that set them apart from any other game. It makes them iconic and instantly recognizable or it can make you stop and soak in every scene and detail in the game.
It may not be a very good game, but my God does it look good. It’s one of the best looking games ever made and the art inspired by H.R. Giger is prevalant and beautiful. It’s dark, depressing, lonely, and hopeless. The scenery invokes a lot of emotion when playing despite the awful combat and derivitive puzzle designs. I just wish a good story accompanied this work of art.
