About

SOMA is a sci-fi survival horror that makes you rethink the description of death. You play as Simon Jarrett who was injured in a crash accident and agreed for an experimental operation on his brain. He wakes up at an abandoned underwater facility full of mutants. Trying to figure out what’s going on, Simon finds Catherine Chun, a scientist, who tells him about the technology of copying the human personality.
The gameplay is based on exploration and puzzle solving. There's no combat, and you are meant to avoid enemies and act stealthily. To progress through the story, you need to search for clues, read multiple notes and solve puzzles.   
Though there are monsters in SOMA, it frightens with its atmosphere in the first place. A dark, abandoned station with dead people, uncertainty and the lack of any understanding of what is waiting for you is scarier than screamers and blood rivers. Moral choices you have to make don’t affect the story much: instead, they change your attitude to the events, so it’s you who develops through the game.

I don't usually like horror or very dark games, but I decided to try this one after hearing so many praises to it. And usually, after so much hype the game usually disappoints, even a tiny bit, but boy oh boy this game delivered. Soma is not actually a horror game, more like a dark and gritty sci-fi with a disturbing atmosphere and plot but that darkness and an uneasy feeling is really strong and well made. I don't want to spoil anything, but this was one of the very few games who manages to pull that "what just happened down there, I have to know" feeling perfect. After the ending, I just sat and stared to scrolling end credits, but inside my mind was blowing up like fireworks on July 4th. Play this game, the writing is superb, voice acting is amazing, atmosphere is chilling and this game is awesome.

SOMA's only problems are it's genre vestigials. Play it with a no-monsters mod if you like, but do experience the story yourself. It's one of the best of its kind and its moral dilemmas and philosophical implications linger long after.
This game is amazing, please do yourself a favor and play it .____.

«That Ending!»
Шикарный сценарий, неожиданным образом высказывающийся на избитую уже, в общем-то, в фантастике тему. Густая атмосфера подводного ужаса в стиле рифтерской трилогии Уоттса. Одна из любимых игр вообще.
