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.
I find everything about this game wonderful! For me, it is a work of art.
Most of all - above its great graphics, above the unbelievably immersive music and the masterfully written storyline, - most of all I am impressed by the way 'Amnesia' handles such topics as torture and redemption. There is the level of spiritual and intellectual maturity in it I haven't yet come across in any other computer game. Most just present violence as fun; well, here you will find something different.
The general atmosphere is very dark and somber, yet so beautiful. Being more than a horror story, 'Amnesia' invokes the feeling of sorrow, if one goes the right way about immersion.
'Amnesia: The Dark Descent' is ideally meant to be a solitary experience, so I'm not sure what to think of some LPs (but that's an entirely different topic); yet no matter your playing style, if you appreciate a good narrative, you would like this great game!
Incredibly tense and scary game; the lack of combat makes it stand apart from the crowd, although it's not the first horror game to do something like that. It is the first horror game to make me scream out loud, though, so that has to count for something.
(Russian) Хорошая игра. Как по графике, так и по содержанию. Очень напомнила мне "Зов Ктулху" под Windows: локализацию даже проводила та же самая команда! Пожалуй, единственное, за что стоило бы снизить балл до 9-ти (но я этого не сделал) это то, что монстр только один нарисован. Что рыба, что монстр в коридоре, не нарисованы - на их месте пустота.
This is one of my favourite horror games! I was never the kind of person who loved horror, actually I get startled pretty easily, but Amnesia taught me to love the genre. Back then the idea of not being able to fight off the monsters was something completely new (at least for me, who was used to games such as Silent Hill and Resident Evil) and I was really curious about how it was going to be. I called friends over and we played Amnesia a whole night and it was one of my best gaming experiences! Puzzles were not impossible to solve, though sometimes they were quite challenging, jumpscares were on point and the general design of the game is very pleasing to the eyes.
