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.
A Brilliant masterpiece, the game is about immersion and tension build-up. the enemies (Servant Grunt, The Brute and the suitor) were disturbing enough. The levels were beautifully designed. The Sanity meter was very original. Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a Must-play for Horror lovers. Just remember it is not famous because of that idiot PewDiePie, Its famous because of the Suspense. an Indirect sequel will be released next year Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. If you like Psychological Horror and Suspense, Play Amnesia: The Dark Descent
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!)
The is no reason to not give a 10 out of 10 to this magnific masterpiece, seriously! The game picks up everything that was missed on the Penumbra series and added it with all the strengh. The atmosphere is memorable and the scares never gets old! The story is really confusing, what breaks a lot of immersion (I have to say that the plot in A Machine for Pigs is really better but it still doesn't have the magic from TDD).
The Water Monster, the Grunt, the Brute, the Shadow, all the monster are very well explained and plus, it's very well detailed and appears very much in the game. The models and assets are very well designed and modelled. The same with the level design a.k.a mapping, that is absolutely incredible! The lengh is what makes me sad, and sometimes, the fact that it's really easy to stop been scary on the game, if you really want, because of the buggy checkpoints mechanic, that allow you to pass everything without seeing the monster if you died in your first try.
I would have changed that. Maybe in Soma they can correct this, that have been done too in Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
Final Score: 10/10
Positives: Plot / Scares / Enviroment / Models & Assets / Idea / Characters / Monsters + Everything else.
Negatives: Sometimes is hard to understand what's really going on in the story / Checkpoint Mechanic / Duration
