Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Adventure Classic Gaming
15 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Amnesia: The Dark Descent is an adventure survival horror game from Swedish indie developer Frictional Games, creator of the acclaimed Penumbra series. Similar to games from that series, this game is played from a first person perspective and features an advanced physics engine that allows direct interaction with objects and the environment. It is by far the scariest game I have ever played.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent Review (PC)

Gamers Daily News
28 April 2011
  • Summary: Amnesia is a cost effective experience. For a small sum you get to wander through a world that is both darkly enchanting and suspenseful. It’s short overall length and below average puzzles hold back what could be a defining masterpiece.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Inside Mac Games
20 February 2011
  • Excerpt: In most graphic adventures you need to understand the environment and the history of the role you are playing. Amnesia adds an interesting twist. The main character, Daniel, has had something happen to him, making him totally forget what is going on. Early on in the game he finds a note from his previous self that provides just a little information. It is the purpose of the game to try to understand the rest.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Game Vortex
28 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Without making any judgment on Amnesia: The Dark Descent as a game , suffice it to say that this is a tech-demo for Terror. If you've ever had a creeped-out feeling while walking down a dark alley or hallway, heard that stray sound in your backyard and hustled for the door, you have a sense of what your time in The Dark Descent will feel like. Your entire time... The audio engineering for this game is especially brilliant.

Expert Review

Video Game talk
10 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Not since Eternal Darkness on the Nintendo Gamecube has a survival horror game come along to frighten me with such calculated terror as Amnesia: The Dark Descent. From the developers that also worked on the Penumbra horror games, Amnesia puts the player into the role of a young amnesiac named Daniel that�s trying to figure out why he�s trapped in a medieval castle.

GameSpot
30 September 2010
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: 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
  • Cons: Physics-based interface can require some annoying mouse maneuvers, Dated visuals

Game Debate
23 September 2010
  • Excerpt: My eyes struggled to focus in the gloom, shadows dancing with macabre intent across my vision. Hideous laughter seemed to bellow from the walls, which were stained with the rusty remnants of week-old blood, and I pleaded for it to stop, my sanity seeping until everything blurred and then gradually – mercifully - dimmed.
  • Pros: Freakin' scary, Strong design & controls, Well implemented puzzles
  • Cons: Perhaps a little easy, Main character is a wuss

[Review] Amnesia: The Dark Descent

GamerDork
19 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Fear! It’s something that affects us all in various interesting ways. Some people will cower under their blankets for days after hearing an unexplained scratching sound emanating from behind the wall panels, whereas others – like my own good self – are made out of slightly sterner stuff.
