Alone in the Dark: 5 Complaints

Add this to the list of horror games I have played. The game in question is Alone in the Dark and I have been chugging away at it, flaming Humanz, fleeing Ratz and whatnot for the past few weeks. I have not finished it yet but am this close to the end. In fact, I am at the last sequence and I should be done with it in a few days. That's when I'll write up a review for the game. For now, I thought up of a few things that have been bugging me about Alone in the Dark.

1. What's with the driving?

Honestly, who came up with that? Alone in the Dark does a genre-bender of sorts and throws in a number of driving sequences into the game. This means, for the most part, you must hot wire a car and zoom off to your set destination whilst avoiding Humanz. Who can jump on your car and poke at you I might add.
