Positives:

- 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

Negatives:

- 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?

Conlusion:

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.

Highly recommended.

10/10 - Masterpiece

Absolutely fantastic. There are no glitches, no bugs, and it is very well made. This is the best custom story I've played!

Excellent mapping, great story, fun game play. Some spots had me stumped for a while, but that's part of the fun. Really enjoyed the 4 quarters of war, death, famine and pestilence. Keep it up guys.

Well, this story gets the honor of ending my tradition of rating Amnesia Custom Stories multiples of 3

This is another short custom story I saw on multiple "best custom stories" lists, so I had to see for myself. I wasn't disappointed, but I also wasn't too impressed.

I never really felt any sense of danger while playing, except in the storage area, and that was short-lived.

The design of each map, especially after the mansion, is interesting and fleshed out; all of the horsemen's rooms are easily discernible from eachother.

I got confused at a few points, but the puzzles all made sense. Nothing too insane, other than a trial-and-error lever section.

The story is creative, but the ending felt like it was missing something.

Overall, this custom story was a little too easy for me, but it's evident that a lot of time was put into it; especially into the voice acting, that **** was top-notch.
