Summary: I haven't played a whole lot of this game to be honest, but from what I have played of it, it's just like the other game in the series, Amnesia. Playing in a first person perspective, you mist interact with your environment to find clues, solve puzzles and hide from creepy creatures or sounds.
Summary: When I first bought this game, I had my doubts. Overall it was fantastic. The games all had me jumping from fear and gripping the edge of my seat. The controls are very interactive, for example- if you are trying to turn a valve wheel, you have to make the mouse move in circles to the right. Don't let the graphics disappoint you, they are good, but there's better out there. Besides the graphics, the sounds are very frightening and create a horrorific atmosphere.
Summary: This game has intrigued me somewhat. Nice prologue that makes the player wonder what is going to happen. You are a young man who has just buried your mother when a letter from your long vanished and presumed dead father arrives on your doorstep. He provides you with some information but implores you not to follow up on anything.
Summary: This package includes all three games in the Penumbra trilogy: Penumbra Overture, Penumbra Black Plague, and Penumbra Requiem. Penumbra Overture is an excellent survival horror game with a unique physics-based system that isn't very common in the survival horror genre. Sometimes frustrating because of the occasionally confusing puzzles, but overall frightening because of the tension that stems from a combination of dark atmosphere and being pursued by creepy enemies...
Summary: The 3 game set was a pleasant surprise for me as I had expected something less due to the price. A horror adventure game with a first person perspective and play action more like a first person shooter than the typical pixel fest of most adventure games. Since enemies are able to dispatch you with ease you will usually rely on stealth rather than confrontation. The atmosphere is very creepy and you may find yourself on occasion, unable to move.
Summary: As if the quality of the games wasn't enough, they are all in one box! For ten dollars! A problem I've had with many of the horror/adventure games I've played (Indigo Prophecy being the worst offender) is that the secret behind all the goings-on turns out to be pretty lame. Indigo Prophecy, for example, started AWESOMELY, but then came apart by the time it revealed what was happening. A time-traveling Mayan hit man? Really?
Summary: A short while back, I bought a new computer and wanted to get a game that distanced itself from the concole games that I have played. The Penumbra Collection does that quite well. It is scary while requiring that you use your brain as you copmlete your objectives. Problems have more than one solution and ability to interact with the environment is amazing. Overture is the frst episode. Its story is overly bizzare but it adds to the sureal nature of the rest of the game.
Summary: ---Dies und Das--- Um es schnell auf den Punkt zu bringen: Penumbra gehört zu den Abenteuer-Spielen, von denen ich mir persönlich wünsche, dass es mehr von ihnen gäbe. Man spielt hier im Prinzip vielmehr einen interaktiven Horror-Film, sowohl in den Minen des ersten Teils als auch in der Untergrundstation des zweiten. Aber ohne lange Umwege hier nun das Spiel, bitte sehr!
