In ALONE IN THE DARK on Xbox 360, the player plays the role of Edward Carnaby, looking for answers to the strange supernatural events that are taking place in New York's Central Park.

The game has been rated at '15' for strong language and violence. The BBFC's guidelines state that "there may be frequent use of strong language (eg fuck)" at '15.' The game contains multiple uses of fuck. With regard to violence, the guidelines allow strong violence that "does not dwell on the infliction of pain and injury." Whilst there is plenty of violence in the game, it is all mitigated by the fantasy context in which the adventure is set and the game does not dwell on its infliction in an overt fashion. The player is faced by zombies and other supernatural, horrific creatures, and fights them off with guns, posts, spades, flamethrowers and other items that can be turned into weapons.

The game also features moments of horror, with some of the supernatural beasts that attack the protagonist arriving in fairly unexpected - and shocking - fashion.
