You play as Alastair, a 19th century researcher who has devoted his life to the study of the Four Horsemen. Upon hearing reports of their arrival to Earth, Alistair realises that he may have the solution to save mankind from annihilation...
- High level of creativity
- Advanced, yet not too hard puzzles
- Amazing level design! It's obvious that you took your time with it
- Story line is so unique as it can be
- Best voice acting I've ever heard in Amnesia! Huge cred to the voice actors
- Suitor only spawned once and disappeared quickly. I saw no purpose with him
- Pretty few actual encounters (the grunt was walking around like 12 times and only attacked 1-2 times at most)
- The ending was way too easy, especially compared to the rest of the story. I did not understand what the Alexander voice acting did there. Was that a horseman?
I play a lot of stories, some of them are bad and some are decent. I ask myself "would I pay to play this story as a DLC?" And my answer is always No. But this time I could actually say "Yeah, I would pay to play this story".
There are a few minor things, like the ending, that could be a bit better, but it's close to perfection. The story is unique and refreshing, the level design is beutiful and the voice acting is the best I've ever heard in Amnesia.
10/10 - Masterpiece
Definitely belongs to the top custom stories. Focused on detail, atmosphere, storyline and originality, The Four Horsemen offers an excellent custom story experience which can easily amaze the player. A few the puzzles are rather hard and there's not much oil if you're not searching thoroughly. I believe I had been tracking this CS once before it was released and I think it'd been in development for a pretty long time. Now I understand why. All the effort that was put into this fine piece of hard work has proved to be reasonable.
I only found one bug - when you're going back from the Death's Quarters and load an autosave, the passageway that is supposed to be unblocked might still be blocked. This bug can be avoided by loading an earlier save or autosave. (I loaded an autosave before I went to the room with the orb and it worked.)
Amazing custom story! Terrific story line mixed with long gameplay. I especially enjoyed the secrets in the war chamber. There's only 2 cheesy type jump scares in this mod, but if you pay attention to the story they are perfect for this. I only found 1 glitch but it happened to several objects. The glitch makes you unable to to open certain drawers and cabinets. I don't know if they made it like this of not but just putting it out there. Otherwise this is a very well made custom story and I suggest everyone to give it a try.
The quality of the level design looks very occasional, for example the outdoor environments along with the shed with crowbar in it, and some of the mansion maps looked kinda rushed. Although the basement/sewer area had amazing level design and it got me jealous. Billboard and particle usage was great, and looting was good. Voice acting was super! Best voice acting I have ever heard in amnesia custom story. It had many unique scary events, my favorite has to be the invisible walker in the sewer area where the 8 levers are. It scared the crap out of me.
Overall a very good custom story that will make you s**t your pants. And make sure to follow the story; its great.
