MAN Of Medan is a clunky hor­ror from a uni­verse where Res­i­dent Evil 4 never hap­pened.

Set aboard a de­serted WWII war­ship that’s haunted the south seas for over 75 years, it at­tempts to cre­ate an at­mos­phere of dread and fear, yet its most ter­ri­fy­ing achieve­ments are the lobotomise­d char­ac­ters you must nudge through each hack­neyed sce­nario – their blank eyes, ro­botic an­i­ma­tion and tank-like con­trols will give you night­mares. There are at­tempts at in­no­va­tion in Man Of Medan’s ‘pad shar­ing’ mul­ti­player, where groups of friends can take turns to play to­gether, but they’re more likely to laugh at how dread­ful it all is than hud­dle to­gether in fright.

■ The last word: This ter­ri­ble ghost ride fails to be fright­en­ing.

■ Price: £24.99
