Mod Review by fastrunnin on Jun 30th, 2015

Great mod, but another one that i found focused a bit too much on trying to get you to wet your pants, and not on making a great story. This is one of a few mods that does a great job with the horror ( creepy, tense atmosphere combined with unique, effective scares), yes this mod has all that, but other than the scares, and gameplay, most other areas of the mod are lacking.

The plot is somewhat unique, but not very involved. Notes are far and few between, there aren't very many interesting revelations or plot twists and Gary (the player) doesn't really have a main objective up until right near the end. The voice acting was pretty good, and there are even a few "cut scenes" but I still felt like the story itself could have had more detailed.

Creativity was an issue. Other than a few animations, this full conversion mod doesn't really have anything new about it. Yes its got custom audio, but any mod can have that, and 95% of the content is from the vanilla game and the rest, directly from White Night. For a full conversion mod, I expect a new experience, this mod did not give me that. If you told me that this was just a basic Amnesia mod, and I didn't know any better, I wouldn't question you.

And finally, the last 30-45 minutes were tedious to get through. Not only is that the point where the gameplay is starting to get repetitive, but the developer chose that part to spawn a monster around every corner. There were at least 10 monsters in a area where there should have been no more than 2. It really got frustrating. By the time got to the end, I was just glad it was over. This ultimately is what ruined the experience for me. Even with the above mentioned stuff, i would have given this a ten because of how scary it was, and how the gameplay was very good up until that point, but that part made it impossible to justify a perfect score.

Overall, this is still an excellent mod, with some great scares, an intriguing if not complex plot and some very engaging gameplay up until the last 2 sections.

This is the scariest Amnesia mod, straight up. You will not sleep after playing this. The atmosphere rivals that of the original game and the scares are fantastic, not cheap at all. It also has 2 (or was it 3?) custom monsters, interesting and unique level desgin as well some creepy music and good sounds that add to the atmosphere. And yeah, they like to mess with you. All these things are what made this mod the ONLY one ive ever played (ive played a lot) to make me stop playing because of how scared I was, even the original game never made me do that. So why only a 9/10? Well because that's where the good ends:

- no substantial plot, and even the tiny morsels of information scattered throughout the game are not very unique at all. Yes it has 3 endings, but they are all bad

- bugs, lots of glitchyness, especially at a few parts, also some saving bugs

- no guidance with puzzles so I got stuck wandering around in the darkness for long periods of time with no idea what to do

It's a shame really, because if it weren't for those 3 things, this would easily be one of my top 5 mods, but as it stands I don't think it would even be in my top10. Even in horror games, the horror itself does not always make a game great and this is a perfect example of that. Still highly recommended, especially to those who think Amnesia can't scare them anymore.

I went into this mod with very high expectations and although it didn't quite live up to them, I still say that this mod worth my time. It's scary for sure, with a creepy atmosphere and some good (but cheap) scares. It was also entirely bug free (something that you don't often see in Amnesia mods) and the length was very good. However, the story and plot, was confusing, illogical and often didn't make much sense and the grammar/sentence structure needed work.

Still, this is an above average cs. If you don't mind cheap scares and don't care much for story, give this a try

Mod Review by fastrunnin on Jun 30th, 2015

I really liked this mod. The idea was intriguing, and it had a great atmosphere with some solid scares as well. It was also quite long and the ending was awesome. Unfortunately, there are 2 significant issues that, in my opinion, prevented this from truly being great.

1. Monsters. There were at least 2-3 times more monsters than were needed. There were a few really well done, scary sequences, but overall, I felt that every time I made progress a monster would show up, and it got to the point where it really started to break the atmosphere.

2. Creativity. About 30% of the puzzles, maps and sequences, were almost a carbon copy of things from the vanilla game, and another 60% is stuff that ive seen in god knows how many other mods. Only about 10% is really unique to this mod (mine, mannequin part and ending, that's about it).

It's a shame because if that stuff was fixed, this would be an easy 9, but I can't justify a higher rating considering that those two things did significantly impact my experience. For anyone looking for a tribute or something very similar to Amnesia, this is a great choice. For those looking for a unique experience, look elsewhere.

This mod really expands upon an already awesome game and makes it even better. New units spice up the regular gameplay, new abilities makes you question every skirmish on what to do and when to do it. The addition of the new Dwarven factions, as in all three of the different places, really made my day as dwarfes are my favourite race. cant wait for the elves to arrive nor angmar

One of my top 3 Amnesia mods, easy. This is a masterpiece and I really can't come up with even a single criticism of this mod. The atmosphere is sheer terror, there was not a moment after about 1/3 of the way through where I felt safe. This mod truly made me feel like I was being hunted, and not by brutes, grunts or even the suitor. You'll have to play yourself to know what I mean. And if that alone isn't scary enough, there are some great jump-scares as well and they aren't cheap.

Now that's just the horror element. The level desgin was also excellent and detailed, the plot is interesting, the puzzles are refreshing, the voice acting is superb and it has multiple endings.

Although I wouldn't quite say this is my #1 favorite, it is probably the most well rounded mod ive ever played. There are simply no flaws in this one

Innovative, interesting, unique, funny, and it has a good story to top it all off.

Can be frustrating though (especially at end boss)

If you don't mind rage, and are looking for a unique Amnesia experience, this is for you.

Very impressive mod. The atmosphere is excellent, with several very creepy sequences. The storyline and puzzles were also very unique. Ending wasn't the best though, and some concepts were a bit strange. Still, it was a very good mod overall

Mod Review by DaJackal123 on Jun 30th, 2015 - 3 people agree

I will make this Into a list.

- Rules are terrible, they make no sense as no actual English Is used In them.
- Admins are simply useless, never respond, always walking around visible getting in the way of fights.
- I've already caught one dropping 10 million gold on the floor after I killed him, apparently he was removed but you still see my point.
- I was just banned for killing an admin AS peace was declared, so he decided to Insta-ban me without any words from me.
- Elves walk around randoming people (The Clan) and nothing is ever done about them.
- The Admins never punish people, but bribe you out of making them punish the offender for some stupid reason, my guess it would be to keep the player-count up.
- They launched the mod before having a bank system, Item save system etc. Yes this is Alpha but that Is probably one of the most Important things to have.

When you join this mod, you will come across an overwhelmingly useless admin team. This Is not rage because I got banned, this Is a simple review on the mod, which Its main problem Is the admin staff.

The ONLY thing that's good about this mod Is the RP, and that Is ruined by randoming that never gets dealt with.

Nothing too great about it, but all the essential elements were well implicated including:

- an interesting story with good endings.

- a solid atmosphere coupled with good scares

- Level desgin was good but not very original.

- The puzzles were one thing that did stand out as unique

This mod does pretty much everything well, but nothing really stands out as exceptional, which is what keeps it from keeps it from perfect score

Wow, I wish this mod could have been longer because of how amazing it was. The first monster encounter was genius, the atmosphere was very creepy and suspenseful, it had fantastic voice acting and a great story with an epic twist(kinda) ending. It also had A Machine for Pigs content which is a big plus.

It did have quite a few bugs,( I played on release though and I think they've patched most of it since then so it doesn't lower the score) and it was quite short, but still an epic mod that everyone should try.

This is easily the most unique mod in Amnesia, and is one of my all time favorites. The things done in this mod were simply mind-blowing. It's not a full conversion, yet it still feels like it's own game. In fact it actually does have several very cool mini game sections. And no it's not a joke mod, the story is actually serious but the game itself is not very scary. If you're looking for jump-scares, try Lost the Lights, if your looking for a completely new Amnesia experience, this is what you want to play

This is far and away the BEST Amnesia mod out there. I loved every second of it.

Pros:
- Brilliant, incredibly detailed and constantly unique level desgin
- great,tense atmosphere
- very immersive, well paced, never repetitive gameplay
- good puzzles
- some of the best jump-scares ive ever had in Amnesia ( not too many though)
- engaging story, with well written notes
- custom assets ( music, sounds, textures, items, objects, and new monster)
- by far longest mod out there ( at least 7-8 hours)

Cons:
- no voice acting
- a few bugs
- cheap scares

No mod is perfect, but this mod comes pretty close, and it's not a full conversion either. And yes, even those who detest cheap scares should give this mod a try- no matter how much you hate them, they are very effective in this mod

This was an excellent mod. It had a very unique story, with some great level desgin and voice acting. Great atmosphere as well, but there was a lack of actual scares which I found slightly detracted from the experience. Still a very good mod

Mod Review by poppinor on Jun 30th, 2015 - 1 person agrees

So, it's not bad, the locations are good looking, and the map is as wide as one could hope it too be. Weapons is good, aswell is the armour. However, and this is the major minus. The players. Sorry, but it's too bad. And the admins let them behave in a poor way. Well some them do, others they don't. The RP is non-existent. And if you try to get some going, you will get killed. I just went to the elven camp as a dwarf, got invited in by their leader, I come in, unarmed! and I wanted to start on some RP. But no. Before I had even typed anything, the elves attacked me. Really nice. Random kill, that will resualt in no penalty from the admins. Seriously, this mod had some great hopes. But the majority of the player-base is beyond all criticism. Sure, we have some great people too, but too few, and they are overshadowed by the bad way the others act. Admins HAVE to be firmer in applying the rules set up. Or else, why even bother having some?

Anyway, + the locations, and the map itself, really good
The -, playerbase and lack of action from admins. It's really is a deal-breaker for me. Maybe I will go back again in a week or so. Hopefully they will have this mess sorted out then.

Edit: To my own stupidity I jonied again. And guess what? More rdm kill, from guess who? Elves! The elves was attacking mnias morgul and on the bridge leading them over. And I am far behind them, not in the direction they attack, but BEHIND them. Not moving, not anything, just looking. Does that stop them? No, they turn around, and shot at me and kill me. Me a person from a non-hostile faction. So elves are for some reason allowed to do things others are not .great job admin. This just proves once again what I was talking about. The player-base is too bad, and the admins let them get away with it. And the elven faction seem to be the biggest problem so far. My score just went down from a 5 to a 2. This is simply too bad. And if the chat told me anything, it was that I was not the only one having a problem with the elves getting off the hook for something others would surely be banned for. Nope. like I said, too bad.
