Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs Review

GamerNode
8 November 2013
  • Summary: As a work of horror, A Machine for Pigs never reaches into the emotional core of its audience to pull that vital fear response to the forefront of the experience where it should be.
  • Pros: Story is interesting enough to see through to the end, Strong music, sound effects, and voice acting
  • Cons: Lack of danger; little to fear, Lack of puzzles; lack of urgency, Narrative and design separate the player from the character, Lack of immersion, Asked to observe rather than participate

Review: Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs

Everyday Gamers
12 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Despite glowing reviews, I was incredibly skeptical when Amnesia: The Dark Descent was released only three years ago. Calling a game ‘innovative’ may sound cliche, but I was glad I overcame those hesitations and played Amnesia , as it truly innovated in the horror genre .
  • Pros: Captures the creepy environmental terror of the first game, Piecing the story together through clues and exploration was fantastic

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs review

GamesRadar
9 September 2013
  • Conclusion: "Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs...leaves you with a diluted experience that’s neither frightening nor as memorable as the first. "...after a couple of hours of slow-pacing, you'll realize nothing is coming." "...A Machine for Pigs...makes it almost too easy to never fear the darkness again."
  • Pros: Disturbing narrative that unravels as you play, The feeling of being alone, The unnerving atmosphere
  • Cons: Realizing there’s nothing to be scared of, A lantern that destroys any fear you might experience, Slow-paced, uneventful gameplay

Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs review – simple fears

Metro
21 September 2013
  • Summary: Atmospheric storytelling of the highest order, but the game itself is often a chore to play and abandons too much of what made the original so successful.
  • Pros: Excellent script that tackles serious issues in a subtle but effective manner. Brilliantly woven atmosphere is genuinely frightening, with superb sound design.
  • Cons: Needlessly simplified gameplay that removes all of the most interesting ideas from the original and replaces them with simplistic stealth and perfunctory puzzles.

  • Summary: Конечно, в Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs есть интригующее начало, отличная музыка и несколько прыг-скок моментов, заставляющих вас вздрогнуть от неожиданности, но даже концепция загадочной машины, местных историй про семью Джека Потрошителя и сумрачная атмосфера Лондона не способны вытянуть проект,...

27 September 2013
  • Conclusion: После чисто созерцательной Dear Esther , сиквел Amnesia – большой шаг по направлению к нормальной игре, но по сравнению с пугающим до дрожи оригиналом The Chinese Room откатились так же далеко назад.
  • Pros: Интригующий сюжет, Возможность размять мозги, а не пальцы
  • Cons: Урезанное взаимодействие с предметами, Отсутствие серьезной постановки и ярких моментов, Однообразный игровой процесс, Хоррора не получилось

16 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Als Fan des ersten Teils habe ich mich auf A Machine for Pigs extrem gefreut. Darum ist meine Enttäuschung letztlich umso grösser. Zahlreiche Leerlaufphasen, das sehr vereinfachte Rätseldesign und viel verschenktes Gruselpotenzial zeigen nur zu deutlich, warum sich Frictional Games nicht selbst an...
  • Pros: Beleuchtung, Ein paar gute Rätsel, Musikuntermalung, Solide Gruselatmosphäre
  • Cons: Dumme Gegner-KI, Eher geringe Spieldauer, Kaum Wiederspielwert, Viel Leerlauf, nichts für Ungeduldige, Viel Grusel- & Rätselpotenzial verschenkt

12 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Tarina pyörähtää käyntiin samalla kun helvetinkone yskäisee ja jyrähtää toimintaan Oswald Manduksen Lontoon kartanon alla. Eletään vuotta 1899, uuden ajan alkua. Pieleen menneen Meksikon matkaan jälkeen Mandus on maannut sairauden lannistamana sängyssään nähden toinen toisestaan...
  • Pros: Tunnelma, äänimaailma, musiikki, tulkinnanvarainen tarina
  • Cons: Vanhentunut pelimoottori, rytmitys, tylsyys, kesto, paatos
