Slender: The Arrival is the second entry into the Slender franchise and picks up where the original “Slender: The Eight Pages” leaves off. Those who weren’t lucky enough to catch the original will be pleased to know that they can find a similar but much more polished experience in the second chapter of this title.

Upon starting the journey, players will immediately find themselves faced with an overwhelming amount of tension and anxiety, and this feeling only gets worse as you progress through the game. While the game’s plot is not clearly disclosed, your objective seems to be locating your friend who mysteriously goes missing by piecing together clues scattered throughout the land. This must be done while avoiding the game’s antagonist (Slenderman) whom also has the ability to teleport and he’s not afraid to use it.

Conclusion

The biggest and perhaps only drawback of this title is the length of the story. The game can be completed in less than 2 hours but chances are, most players won’t accomplish this on their first play through. That said, Slender: The Arrival is hands down one of the best Horror games currently available on the Wii U. The title is currently available on the Wii U™ eShop for only $9.99, so fans of the genre are encouraged to head to the eShop and grab a copy.
