The Last Half of Darkness series has racked up a surprising number of entries given its general lack of quality. They're not necessarily bad games, just very average and unless you're a diehard horror fan with a need to play every Alone in the Dark-style title, you can probably skip this. This is one of the later entries and finds you in the small town of Antibes, Louisiana on the trail of your missing fiance writer. You start out in a motel room, after having received a package suggesting your fiance is in trouble and you'll explore the local area, looking for clues. As you venture further, you'll meet the town's inhabitants and learn something of the spooky goings on which are occurring in the area. The focus of the game is generally on puzzle solving rather than action and you'll need to gather items in order to progress. This title includes a number of improvements and changes over previous entries in the series, including a switch to third-person and the ability to highlight all hot spots onscreen. Society of the Serpent Moon certainly doesn't stand out when compared to other horror adventures, but when taken on its own merits, it's an enjoyable enough romp. It certainly delivers a suitably creepy atmosphere, with some nice visuals and use of lighting to create a sense of foreboding in the player, while the story (which is standalone from other games in the series) is quite compelling, if not entirely original. The puzzles are decent enough so if you're into this genre, this is just about worth a look.
