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 would rate it a ten but im a new user so i cant rate it past 8..Any ways this game is awesome..the suspense the thrill,the ambience,the lighting and the atmospher send this chill up my spine..Its just so urging to look behind you allthough you cant look everywhere at once..The fact that you have a lantern and constantly need oil to keep where ever you are lit and to keep your guy from going crazy..And the feeling you get when your being chased feels as if your being chased in real life and the moment is so instense..If you were to get chased you'd clench your teeth and and and screem "go! go! go!" as if your guy was running to ******* slow for you..XD i love this game..Definately a ten out of ten..
I have always been interested in horror games, but none of them have been quite as amazing as Amnesia: The Dark Descent. I was getting really bored with all of the "horror" games that continuously used the same tactics over and over again, and not to mention jump scares. While jump scares provide a brief moment of panic, they aren't what I would consider "scary", and are a cheap trick in my book.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent puts you in a state of fear not by actually scaring you, but by building up the suspense of thinking that you will be scared. You are always expecting things to jump out of the closets, or be behind the corners, but they don't. The developers did a really amazing job at figuring out when the player would be expecting to see something, and when they would feel safe, that is when something happens. When something does happen, the game does an amazing job at making you really feel like you are in the situation. I find my heart pounding multiple times through each play through.
You actually get caught up in the Amnesia environment, and feel like you are roaming around the castle. The game's soundtrack and little sound effects do an amazing job of making you feel like there is directional audio.
While I've already completed the game multiple times, I still have fun playing the custom stories that indie developers keep coming out with. If you've played Amnesia: The Dark Descent and are looking into continuing the fun, I would recommend finding some good custom stories instead of playing Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, which I have a review on in which I rate it very poorly 2/10. Over all, Amnesia: The Dark Descent is an amazing game and definitely my favorite horror game of all time, I recommend that anyone play this game at night, alone, in the dark, with headphones for the best experience.
