About

Carefully constructed horror game relies on positioning, camera work, and shocking content. But Amnesia: The Dark Descent adds psychological elements to it. Players control the young man named Daniel, who wakes up in a seemingly empty castle, alone and with a massive memory loss. Through environmental storytelling, notes, audio logs and even visions, players are invited to uncover the deep-rooted secrets of the castle.
Throughout the game players will be introduced to the mechanics of Sanity, representing the mental state of Daniel which can be affected by lack of light, visions and even unpleasant encounters with the monsters. When decreased, Sanity will distort the vision of the player to a different and seemingly random effect, in order to depict actual effects of severe anxiety. Most of the game challenges are completed through the item search and physics puzzles, forcing players to be resourceful and courageous.
The game supports modding, and allows user-created content alongside the free DLC Justine, telling a story of a female prisoner. Given how short the DLC story is - several possible endings are available.

This game is for the bravest ones! I’m really TOO AFRAID to play it. And this fact makes it the best horror game ever. The content here is awesome, it makes you feel terrified and nervous - like any good horror should do. I love how they made sounds, visuals and the atmosphere. Surprisingly, it’s addictive - I mean, after I realised it was very scary, I didn’t abandoned Amnesia - I still return to it from time to time.

I find this game boring. It’s too slow and not as scary as it’s meant to be. The story is also predictable and not involving, so I just gave up playing it in a while. Better buy another horror game, like Outlast, or watch a couple of horror movies than waste your money on this crap. 
Атмосферный хоррор-квест в суровом замке Пруссии. Темнота, пытки, непонятные существа с мешком из-под картошки на голове приложат максимум усилий, чтобы Вы выложили хотя бы несколько кирпичей. Ближайший родственник - Outlast, т.к. заехать по морде упырям никто не даст. Рекомендую играть в полностью темной комнате и в наушника для полноты погружения. В таком случае проймет даже самых бесстрашных геймеров. Уверенные 7,5 из 10.
