Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a first person survival horror. A game about immersion, discovery and living through a nightmare. An experience that will chill you to the core.
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.
Okay, I'm going to change my review.
My rating used to be 10, now it's 9 and here's why:
-A great horror experience
-Super well designed
-All right and creative puzzles
-Good story line
-intense chase scenes
-Well made sounds
-Some puzzles are extremely hard
-Things are confusing and cause me to get stuck
-A few bugs
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.
