It's finally done. My complete review of SOMA:
I haven't been this impressed with a game in some time. What's most impressive is that despite my endless praise for Penumbra and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, SOMA shows significant improvement in every regard. Far more detailed environment, some of the most amazing art design I've ever seen in a game, much more polished, much more character interaction + voiced protagonist, almost every enemy you see in the game is unique with much more voice clips and animation and less predictable AI, much scarier gameplay, mind blowing sound design + the best sound effects I've ever heard in a game, but most importantly a powerful, thought-provoking, and very human story. It's everything that makes the horror genre special.
