Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
Adventure Classic Gaming
1 September 2015
Excerpt: Developer Frictional Games is no stranger to the horror adventure genre. The Penumbra trilogy—Penumbra: Overture, Penumbra: Black Plague, and Penumbra: Requiem—has been well received by critics and fans.
Summary: A solid game that definitely has an audience. Might lack replay value, could be too short or there are some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun. How we score: The Destructoid Reviews Guide
Excerpt: Amnesia A Machine for Pigs’begins in darkness, with a man’s voice pleading, ‘Daddy. Daddy, please don’t kill me.’ You awaken in a cage surrounded by bars. Perhaps this is the first clue – why sleep’inside’a cage? Is it to protect you from something, or something from you? But you’re not alone.
Excerpt: You are plunged into complete darkness, under an altar that has been desecrated in unspeakable fashion. All you have is your basic instincts and an unreliable lantern. You take a look around, seeing nothing but cages, dead rodents, and blood.
Excerpt: The Good : Complex, immersive story and atmosphere The Bad : Linked to a not very good gaming experience The Ugly : Some irritatingly fussy puzzles It’s kind of fascinating reviewing Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and Outlast right on top of one another.
Summary: You can't blame me for going into A Machine for Pigs expecting to be scared out of my mind. For two years I've been listening to people tell me how Amnesia: The Dark Descent is the scariest game of all time, so you can understand why my expectations were at an all-time high.
Summary: Join Oswald Mandus as he takes a harrowing journey through his creepy mansion. With its great presentation and well-written story, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs gets a lot right. Unfortunately, the game is marred by a lack of scares and puzzles that even a pig could solve!
Summary: No, not a cute bicycle for a Miss Piggy-type character. This machine is far more grisly. Imagine the rotten-pig dismembering scene from the Saw movies. That’s the kind of machine the new Amnesia is evoking, if not directly.
