  • Excerpt: I've played my share of horror games that started off tense, but eased up on the scare factor as I advanced ( Penumbra: Overture ). I've also plunged into a few that featured mundane introductions, awkwardly interrupted by spookiness ( Silent Hill 3 ).

  • Conclusion: If you’re going to play Amnesia: The Dark Descent in the evening, with the lights out and headphones on, make sure the house is empty. Should someone come up behind and tap you on the shoulder it could be game over. You’ve been warned.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent Review

  • Conclusion: I find it hard to imagine what they can do after Amnesia: The Dark Descent. They’ve used every trick in the book: doors squeaking, heavy breathing, unforgettable monsters, and light manipulation.
  • Pros: I don’t know if it’s the scariest game I’ve ever played. I’m more mature now and I’m harder to influence, but you should watch some of the YouTube videos about people playing. They are hilarious and they actually represent what most people feel about it. The fact that people record themselves whi...
  • Cons: The game is about tension, so I can understand that some of the interludes between action scenes need to vary, but sometimes you can go a long way without anything happening, especially at the beginning.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The true meaning and essence of “horror” has, over time, been eroded and reduced to little more than cheap scares, sudden, in-your-face imagery, and generous helpings of blood splatters.

  • Conclusion: The point of the matter is: we like this game. It proves that you don't need a colossal Hollywood-powered budget and 300 people to make a good game. This is a classic first-person survival horror game, spooky enough to frighten almost any player. 'Spooky' doesn't quite cover it.
  • Pros: Best survival horror game we've played in ages, awesome spine-tingling atmosphere, skillfully used sound effects, you'll be scared, no doubt about it. Wait, thought I heard something...;
  • Cons: Visuals aren't all that up-to-date, more effort could've been poured into the level design, a few bugs here and there.
