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.

A real Horror Game with captivating Story that has found many Imitators. It's sometimes something different, but not too "different" not to please. Gloomy and creepy Atmo! Very creepy Story, in the End also very cruel. The Story is mostly told through Documents that are very well written. You sneak through a half-abandoned Castle, have to hide from Monsters, as you can't fight back and desperately almost in the Dark, because Oil for the Lamp is scarce. Over time, one learns more and more what cruel Things have happened in this Castle. It offers a sizable and atmosphere graphics, many Interaction Possibilities, puzzles and four possible Endings. At three Ends a Code appears in The End Credits, all three together give the Password for a .rar file in The Amnesia Folder, with some Sketches etc. from the Development. An absolute Must for every Horror Fan!

At last... After just under 2 Years ... ICH HABS DURCH!!! WUHUUU ... First of all, I have to say that this Game can take such a most spodown one ... It took me just under 2 Years, bit me had through, because I always had too much Shit. I Freely admit. But now habs ichs finally through ... * freu * Now to the Game itself ... The Graphics are quite good for the Time. The Atmosphere, is really captivating, nobody believes that. Then there is the Right Mixture of light and Shadow Effects ... Top! ... And now the Sound ... I've never had such a creepy Sound in a Game. This Sound ... Xd... Absolutely fitting to any Situation. And the Sound makes the Game 1000% gruselier again!!! TOP TOP TOP!!! I can recommend this Game to anyone who is into proper Psycho Horror. As I said, hats really cohorated and taken with me properly. What negative I can't say because I didn't notice anything. Everything was a wonderful fit.

I played it ENDLICH through. I had it on my Hard Drive for so infinitely long, and never dared to touch it. Played a few times the first few Minutes, and then repeatedly abandoned because it was too creepy for me. However, I thought to myself now, it must be possible to get what for his Money. And actually-it was stunning, literally! PRO: + incredibly stark Atmosphere + beautiful Level design + chic graphics (by then) + beautiful Phsyikengine in terms of objects and Doors + beautiful Puzzles + successful Soundtrack + Menacing Mood + good inventory Buildup Contra:-partly to simple Mechanics-sometimes Resource-heavy and you have to stretch back a long time because you have forgotten something-hardly any Opponents-too short-Story is not quite clear Conclusion: I would recommend it to anyone who wants a lot of Horror for small Money. It's incredibly threatening, and you get in your Pants. Per Duty! It was really Fun and I would buy it again.
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.
