Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

Game Vortex
1 October 2013
  • 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. You can't trust your mind; you're hearing things, and possibly seeing them too. Suddenly, you hear a series of unsettling animal noises that sound like something far removed from the natural world.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs Review (PC)

Softpedia
22 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The sequel to that experience is called A Machine for Pigs and the name itself is impressive, implying dark mechanics and the sort of terror that can only be described via hyperbole and suggestion, because facing it would be too much for a player. But the game itself does make some questionable choices when it comes to the core game mechanics and the way the story is being delivered, and some long-term fans might be disappointed with the resulting title, created by The...
  • Pros: + Horror story, + Focus on atmosphere, + Streamlined
  • Cons: - Missing sanity mechanic, - Some unanswered questions

amnesia: a machine for pigs

Destructoid
18 September 2013
  • Summary: Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a beloved title for a number of reasons. As well as becoming a viral darling thanks to a cavalcade of shrieking YouTube videos, Dark Descent was praised for bringing back a sense of true survival horror at a time when so many publishers were adamant the genre was dead. It was also just a straight up terrifying game, which helped!

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: While undoubtedly completely less OH MY GOD RUN HIDE than the first game Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs manages to still be a worthwhile purchase thanks to The Chinese Room putting so much effort into maintaining a creepy, freaky atmosphere. It also offers a much better plot with a satisfying ending, and those damn pig masks (OR IS IT JUST ONE?!?) get me every time.

  • Conclusion: All of this—the frantic narrator ranting about the filth of the world, the endless and nihilistic sprawl of the factory, the sound design that overwhelms—combine to disturb more deeply than any throwaway jump scare. The game has those too, but what you’ll take away is the darkness, the grime, and the desperation. This is a short game, playable in four or five hours—less if you rush—but the impression it leaves is lasting.

Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs

Square-Go

  • Excerpt: The fear of the dark is one of humanities greatest assets. Since the days of cavemen, it’s kept us huddled round fires and shuttered in at night. It’s laced the Earth in the yellow glow of tens of billions of streetlights, and it makes sure that we don’t go sticking our noses in places where they often don’t belong. Lest we see, or are seen by that which we would seek to avoid.

‘Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’ Review: Well-oiled

Stick Skills
15 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Amnesia: The Dark Descent first arrived back in 2010, and brought with it a new brand of survival horror. Much in the same vein of its previous work, Frictional Games threw players into terrifying situations as a completely helpless individual. Without any combat, the only hope for survival was stealth. Three years later the followup, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs , has finally arrived.
