(PC Review) Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
The Entertainment Depot
20 September 2013
Summary: Writing about horror-based games is always a challenge, as the enjoyment in playing them is often in the discovery of what it has in store, making it difficult to describe why those experiences are worthwhile. Luckily, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is laden with laudable moments, as a bone-rattling exploration game filled with an atmosphere so pervasively unsettling that it can be nearly unbearable.
Excerpt: From the moment you click ‘start game’, and a terrifying sound like a tortured soul screeching its way out of hell blasts from your speakers, it’s obvious that Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is going to batter you into a shivering, drooling wreck. Frictional Games, the developer of this horrific horror survival adventure, claims that most players who were brave enough to take on the original Amnesia: The Dark Descent never even finished it.
Pros: Truly horrific, Were serious there, It really is nasty
Excerpt: This world is a machine. A machine for pigs. Fit only for the slaughtering of pigs. Amnesia: The Dark Descent redefined horror gaming for me. I was immersed into a world where nowhere was safe, nobody could be trusted and every word was a potential lie. The horror had me hooked, but the story and the lore pulled me in deeper.
Excerpt: Em 2010, ficou definitivamente provado que era possível fazerem-se jogos que, com verdadeira eficácia, conseguiam produzir valentes “cagaços” aos jogadores. Amnesia: The Dark Descent (ou ATDD) é o responsável por tal façanha. Tenho contudo que admitir que não o joguei na altura, apesar de ter ouvido imensamente bem sobre ele. Isto fez com que me visse agora obrigado a pôr a “cagufa” de lado, enfrentar o desafio olhos nos olhos, e em dose dupla.
Pros: Atmosfera verdadeiramente claustrofóbica, e sustos reais
Cons: Alguns puzzles que acabam por retirar algum ritmo à narrativa
