Survival horror has rarely been approached so sparingly and yet, for all there is to admire... the initial sense of potential suspense gives way to the creeping contempt of familiarity.

While Kidnapped doesn't add anything substantially new to the tradition, Vivas hits his marks with ruthless efficiency.
