Amnesia: The Dark Descent

 

Amnesia is a game that looks to use all of your senses to scare the pants off of you. Does it work? Yes. Frictional Games has created one of the most impressive and downright scary survival horror games in recent memory.

Playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent is kind of like the virtual version of playing with the lights on.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent Review

 

Amnesia just might drive you insane, but in a very good way since this is one of the scariest horror games you're ever going to play.

Creepy Lovecraftian atmosphere and monsters ; Good mix of physics-based puzzles with old-fashioned adventure brainteasers ; Spooky visuals and disturbing insanity effects ; Horror-show sound effects that will keep you on the edge of your seat

Physics-based interface can require some annoying mouse maneuvers ; Dated visuals

Horror games are something that usually sound awesome in theory but often find themselves lacking a certain something when put into practice. A prime example of this is Doom 3. Now I loved Doom 3 as much as the next guy, but when you take a look at the...

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a triumph, not only in the genre of horror games, but also in the field of interactive story telling.

Sick review. Seems like a title I'm going to have to pick up as a big fan of the horror genre. Post a Comment

Reminds us how interactivity, perspective, and player disempowerment can be highly engaging, and that a slow creep of fear with abrupt spikes of terror is ultimately the essence of the horror experience.
