The Ward

This creepy survival horror game marks the debut of a new development studio, Renegade Kid. Their ambitious first effort promises plenty of gory frights served up with impressive graphics, as players roam a derelict hospital and uncover some unnervingly grotesque surgical experiments.

It has real-time lighting, which is probably a first on DS, allowing for the use of a convincing flashlight to illuminate the gloomy corridors of the hospital. The lead character is a man who wakes up to find himself in this mysterious place with no memory of how he got there, and the game appears to be a mixture of puzzles, combat and running away from flesh-eating mutants.
