Embody Harold Mason and Ryan Finch as they journey into the most chilling nightmares that a mysterious demon house provides to them. This is an Amnesia/Silent Hill/Fatal Frame/Resident Evil based custom story. Many aspects from all these games and even more will be included!
To be frank, this story was terrible.
It wasn't actually based on anything, instead blatantly ripping off the series mentioned. More particularly, the whole trapped-in-your-room thing is directly from Silent Hill 4. Harold Mason is directly stolen from Silent Hill. The House of Sleep is directly from Fatal Frame 3. All in all, it doesn't mesh well.
The mod maker missed an excellent opportunity. With the above mentioned games, they have specific themes that make them part of the series. The psychology of Silent Hill. The rich mythology and rituals of Fatal Frame. The helplessness of Amnesia. None of which were present in this custom story, instead ripping off large sections of existing games. The story was dull and convoluted. It barely made any sense and seemed more like a fanboy peeing himself over how clever he must seem to be doing this. It just plain didn't work.
Next time, modmaker, please. Come up with some interesting mythos. Delve into the character's psychology and reflect it in the surroundings. Make the player helpless instead of trying to be clever with a battle system. And please, don't rip off any existing games. I guarantee it'll be much, much better.
Well, looks like there are lots of diametrically opposed reviews for this mod. I tried it and I liked it. Good ideas, lot of stuff, sound effects... I see a big effort in it but I really dont know why would somebody rate this 1 or 2, its a low blow for the developer.
Amnesia Hill: Harold's Story has met my expectations! Well-made custom objects are highly appreciated. The same thing goes for new monsters and an interesting battle system. However, these very monsters could have been a little bit scarier (make them taller, perhaps?). Nevertheless, this custom story is really good and you, my dear fellows, should beat it!
P.S. Thumbs up for marvellous puzzles, good music and an interesting plot (even though the voice acting could have been better)!
