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

The Penumbra trilogy was awesome, but this one is just fantastic.
I thought I'd become a bit immune to scares after many hours with RE and Silent Hill, but this game taught me otherwise.
Awesome! Can't wait for the sequel!

Absolutly amazing i was horrifiyed from beginning to end .... my only complaint is i thought it would be longer but the custom stories more than make up for a life time of gameplay and different approaches from people who arent part of Frictional and thechineseroom which makes for some very creative stories and creepy monsters that make it even more scary. Over all i think every indie horror gamer should invest in this game

Although a great game, the game is only for one shot scares, and ultimately can get somewhat dull after a bit.

Awesome game. This might just be the scariest game of all time (so far) after playing this you will have a hard time finding other horror games that will live up to the standard
