Claiming that German website 4Players reviewed a pirated or incomplete version of Alone in the Dark, Atari has reportedly filed a lawsuit.
Atari has apparently claimed that the date of 4Players review--which gave the 360 version of the survival-horror title 68%--implies it came from an illicit or incomplete copy of Alone in the Dark. They are asking for an undisclosed amount of compensation. 4Players says they acquired the game through a retail connection.
We wonder how a relatively solid review of a game (68% is hardly a bomb) could be said to affect anything enough to warrant a lawsuit, but we're really looking forward to this game, either way!
The PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360 and Wii editions of Alone in the Dark hits North American retailers on June 24. A PlayStation 3 version is expected this fall.
