I'm thinking about buying this game and i want to know is it worth 10$?

Yes.

Yeah ten bucks is about right.

Yes.

Also there's a patch that allows for a wider fov and has other fixes which you should definitely use.

Yes!! (Wasn't it just on sale though?)
 
Keep in mind though, the game does have its fair share of issues; overall, though, I thought it was a great horror experience (some parts were genuinely disturbing). Just make sure that you're able to put up with the fact that the game is decidedly a janky and sloppy port.

yea I probably will be able to put up with it (I liked Duke Nukem Forever on 360)

Also, the first few hours of the game is really slow but it really picks up after a while. Highly recommended.

It's a very flawed game that makes up for its failings with truly great moments. 10 $ is well worth it in my opinion. I'm biased though since I'm a huge Lovecraft fan and especially like the whole Cthulhu mythos. Do you? Or what is your motivation to try it?

Either way it is a fairly original game that does horror/ terror right even without resorting to jump-scares all the time. Gameplay is hit and miss and can get frustrating (FUCK that refinery level for making me use a walkthrough!). I played on PC and there's a pretty crucial patch out for it, so don't forget about that.

Yes but it is highly broken on vista/7. There is an unbeatable part because you can't zoom in on a certain mission.

As a big Lovecraft fan I adore this game. Some of the sequences can be frustrating, but it's a really rewarding experience.
