The game is a great blend of adventure, action and horror. The game focuses significantly more on the story than Overture, which was very nice, especially since it managed to do this while still being a bit more scary than Overture. The game messes with your head in a variety of ways, which emphasizes the puzzle aspects. Overall, this is a great game, definitely worth the money.

This is simply an amazing game. I love how the gameplay is a mixture of Adventure/Action/Horror. You don't see this sort of mix in everyday games, but it works beautifully in Penumbra Black Plague.

С этой игрой связано много приятных воспоминаний, а познакомился я с ней в далёком 2008 году. После первого прохождения, я совсем перестал бояться хорроров. Серьёзно, даже Amnesia, разработанная этим же коллективом не смогла меня напугать. Подача истории, как и сюжетные повороты на высоте, никогда не знаешь, что может произойти. После выпуска первой части “Penumbra: Overture” Frictional Games сделали огромный шаг вперёд: разнообразили локации, добавили больше предметов, с которыми можно взаимодействовать, и новых, не плохо озвученных героев. Самыми важными особенностями Penumbra, как и в предыдущей части, являются звук; музыка и освещение. Игра очень атмосферная и напоминает разные фильмы ужасов, такие как"Нечто" Джона Карпентера, "Пандорум" и тд. Разочаровывает только то, что главный герой совсем не разговаривает. Так, например, в “Call of Cthulchu: Dark corners of the earth”, Джек Уолтерс постоянно бормотал себе под нос, какие-нибудь фразочки, которые придавали игре ещё больше мрачности, ведь он побывал в психушке. Penumbra пропитана любовью к Говарду Филлипсу Лавкрафту, а я очень сильно уважаю мастера мистической прозы, поэтому:

I can't give above 8, but if I could, I'd give 9, :P

I love the dark world of Penumbra, everything is so dark.

When we meet Amabel, she's one of the only survivors at the facility.
Still, a living person, which we don't see much In Penumbra.
So cool!

I also love the puzzles. Hah, so cooOOool!
