The single scariest experience of my life was playing through Amnesia. From start to finish, it was expertly composed with amazing sound effects and an atmosphere like no other. My only complaint is that occasionally some of the puzzles seem to take too long and start to detract from the creepiness of the game, but that is a personal complaint and thus does not affect the rating.

If you haven't already, buy this game, plug in your headphones and turn out the lights (essential to play it right), and get ready to remember.

The creepiest horror game i've ever played. The two Penumbras are compared to this a walk in a park

This game is awesome. Is the first one that really scared the hell out of me. My hair stood on end may times during the "dark descent". Very well done... Kudos for the team :)

Extremely detailed story and scary stuff going on. However, the few last levels didn't have what the few first did, it's like the developers got tired of it and just finished it quickly. Therefore; 9/10

Okay, I'm going to change my review.
My rating used to be 10, now it's 9 and here's why:

Good things:
-A great horror experience
-creativity
-jumpscares
-ambience
-Very scary
-Super well designed
-All right and creative puzzles
-Great atmosphere
-Good story line
-intense chase scenes
-Great music
-Well made sounds

Bad things:
-Some puzzles are extremely hard
-Things are confusing and cause me to get stuck
-A few bugs
-Texture glitches

So first of all, I was in the laboratory and I tried to place the chemical container down and it didn't work, the puzzles are really hard and some are confusing like in the nave laboratory, I tried using the container with the string and instead of saying: It needs blood first, it just said: Can't do this right now. Also, I was trying to make a tonic for Agrippa. I didn't know that you had to go to the room where the orb pedestal was and then get put into prison and then the path to the laboratory is clear. That's what I meant by confusing. Because of this, it make the game rather rage inducing and reduces the scariness in the game because of the anger. I played amnesia for more than an hour and made just a bit of progress for the Nave part. But the game is actually really good, I have to say. The level design is really good. I think my favourite room is the gigantic room where the orb pedestal is. Many things about it are just great.

9/10 Amazing

I think that is the best horror game I have ever played!I recomend it for who wants very dark atmospheres and jumpscares(from the custom-maps too ;-) )!In this site you will find a lot of custom-maps of different types and stories(remember that you need the Justine update to play them!)!So enjoy Amnesia:the Dark Descent and see you soon! :-D
(Don't forget to try,if you liked this game,the sequel Amnesia:A Machine For Pigs and the Penumbra series!)
