I never had the chance to play this game on the real arcade machine and I really regret it because this game is for me the best horror shooter game I have ever played.
This game should still be present in 2023 in all the major arcades still in existence
Ready or not, it is time to face your fears in Namco’s showpiece horror shooter, Dark Escape 4D.
Dark Escape 4D is an arcade exclusive title that is in a class of its own. Wearing anti-bacterial coated 3D glasses, players try to escape from a mad man’s sick and twisted game by shooting their way out using only weapons that he provides. Each stage is based upon a phobia, with five phobias that once must confront to progress. They then must face off against grotesque experimental creatures and the undead in their bid to survive. The bonus fifth stage is available once all four stages are completed.
What makes this a “4D” style experience is in the hardware features that are perfect for an arcade setting. First, the game is housed in a compelling “theater” cabinet which seats two. The graphics are displayed on a 46″ HD stereoscopic 3D screen. Players can shut the 3D off at the press of a button; otherwise they simply wear the 3D glasses attached to the seat. Then each user has their own 5.1 channel surround sound speakers to completely envelop them in the creepy audio environment that the game provides. But that is certainly not the end of it…THE GAME KNOWS WHEN YOU ARE SCARED! To progress and use your weapon, players must hold onto the mounted gun controls, each uses a panic sensor to display each player’s heart rate on the screen. This also records an “panic attacks” experienced thanks to the tense situations Dark Escape throws their way.
Topping off the 4D features are built-in air blowers placed in the front and back, allowing players to feel the breath of a chasing zombie on the back of their necks or a blast of air on their face when a monster lunges at them. Heavy recoil guns and a rumble seat provide additional terrifying elements that complement the game’s immersive game play.
All of these intense features combine to create one of the most unique and frightening arcade gaming experiences ever. Players all over the world have raved about how Dark Escape scares them unlike any other arcade machine out there!
