Über dieses Spiel

Diese Welt ist eine Maschine. Eine Maschine für Schweine. Eine Maschine, die nur fürs Schweineschlachten gut ist.

Dieses Mal haben die Entwickler von Amnesia: The Dark Descent und Dear Esther ein Ego- Horrorspiel für Sie entwickelt, das Sie erbarmungslos in die Abgründe von Gier, Macht und Wahnsinn hineinzieht. Es wird seine Schnauze in Ihre Rippen bohren ... und es wird Ihr Herz fressen!

Wir schreiben das Jahr 1899

Vom Fieber und Träumen über eine obskure, höllische Maschine geschüttelt, erwacht der wohlhabende Unternehmer Oswald Mandus in seinem Bett ... doch er erwacht in einem Albtraum von Realität, gemartert von Traumbildern einer desaströsen Expedition nach Mexiko, gebrochen durch die platzenden Träume einer industriellen Utopie und gepeinigt durch Schuld und eine Tropenkrankheit. Im Haus ist es still, aber der Boden unter ihm vibriert nach dem Willen einer teuflischen Maschine. Sicher weiß er nur, dass seine Kinder in Todesgefahr sind ... und dass nur er sie retten kann.

Einzigartigkeiten

  • Die finsterste und grausigste Geschichte, die jemals Gegenstand eines Computerspiels war.
  • Überwältigender Soundtrack der preisgekrönten Komponistin Jessica Curry.

There is a lot of people that hate this game, and I know why:

TDD was a fad. The game became popular because of one thing, and one thing only: it was scary. Tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands likely bought this game because they wanted to get scared; they wanted a joyride complete with overwhelming fear. I don't blame them. The game is pretty scary, but here's the thing:

It seems that most people do not understand that Amnesia, and the games before it, were not just haunted-house amusement park rides like they like to act like it is. No, it's a lot more than that. The game has thick atmosphere, superb pacing and storytelling backed by a very dark story that keeps you curious from beginning and even to the end. To be able to truly appreciate TDD, you need to look further than the scare factor; it is not the only thing that made the game great. Guess what the Chinese Room capitalised on? The story. They wanted to tell a story, much like TDD did. MFP was much more of a psychological experience; the game did not need to scare you with darkness or spooky monsters, all it needed was an incredibly wicked story. This was fulfilled. I expected an atmospheric, thought-provoking horror experience that would keep me on the edge and this is exactly what the game did.

But what did everyone else expect? Probably something entirely different. They probably just wanted to get scared. Most of the fanbase is filled with people that appreciated TDD for nothing more than its scare factor, and therefor this is all they had expected from MFP. They are probably the kind of people that either skipped or skimmed through most of TDD's note readings, not givng a ♥♥♥♥ about the backstory whatsoever. They just wanted to get to the next "scare." The bad reception for this game purely comes from delusioned expectations, is what I believe. Horror is a much deeper genre than you'd think. Read up.

I tried really hard to like this game, but it flat out wasn't as good as I hoped it would be.

My main issues is that the game is just not scary at all. The story makes little to no sense and they don't really try all that hard to explain it to you. I could go deeper into this but I don't want to spoil the game for other who may actually want to play this (I know I hate when others do this).

If you are expecting something scary as lets say... Outlast? Don't buy it. If you are looking for a slow burner this may be for you.

4/10

The more you play it the more you question the game designing of "scary" games. What are you afraid of ? The dark ? You have a lantern and a friendly blue fog. The monsters ? What monsters ? I am not kidding, they litteraly ignore you even when you run in front of them. Perhaps I just got lucky, they were eight or so anyway. The first opus left you vulnerable, this one just leaves you alone. What else is there, an unnecessary complicated story, a linear path, no items at all, infinite oil and a short lifetime, a stupid, stupid part that makes you pitty the ennemies. The environment looks great though, and some spooky scripted tricks are welcome.

In conclusion, this game fails at what it was supposed to accomplish.

Not scary.

^horror game that isnt scary = not a horror game.

Save a few dollars and skip this. TERRIBLE AI. Mediocre story. like 2 jump scares. and incredfibly short gameplay.

I'm one of thsoe people that almost never complete a game. This game I completed in one sitting. The sheer lack of content is astounding.

One can literally walk through the game feeling like this unkillable super human.
I had to restart once because I got stuck on some invisible wall while something was "chasing me.

This game disappoints on it's own and doesn't reach 1/4 up the bar set by A Dark Descent.
You're character is almost never in any actual danger.
Convoluted story that doesn't quite come together despite finding every hidden document.
Puzzels are unintuitive and the removal of inventory and health managementh makes the game that much easier.
The sanity bar removal has been debated by players, but I thought it was pretty cool. The game feels less depthful and immersive without it, to me.

Although different in many ways from the original Amnesia: The Dark Descent, I find that the game stays true to its cause, fulfilling its purpose in delivering a dark, original and interesting story. At the same time, the horror element is somewhat less agravating than in the original installment, which might turn some of the original fans away. I for one was slighty disappointed at first, but steadily got to love the game for its uniqueness.
The gameplay is biased towards telling a story, rather than scare the player as was the case with the first game. Thus, there are fewer environmental interractions (aka clicking on objects) and the grueling randomness of the monsters in the first game were replaced with scripted and, most times, less difficult encounters. Furthermore, the overall time needed to finish the game is somewhere at half of the original Amnesia (not taking into account exploring and searching for certain lore items like letters and notes).
In conclusion, I can recommend Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs to most players looking for a solid story, intertwined with decent gameplay mechanics as well as a dark and gruesome, yet exceptional envinronment design.

As a huge fan of the first Amnesia, I could not have been more excited for this game. The games opens incredibly strong with a creepy and atmospheric world that begs to be explored. However, this ends up being the high point. As the story progresses and you deeper into the dark and atmospheric world things begin to fall flat. The elements of horror that were present in the first game, are almost nonexistant in this sequel.

It is quite disappointing going from the pure terror that was the first game, into this game which builds a fantastic world, but ultimately does nothing with it. It was a huge disappointment from me, because you can see the structure of a fantastic horror game, but in the end, The Chinese Room built an atmospheric world that did not capitalize on the horror elements you expect from an Amnesia game.

Major letdown from the first game. Everything is simplified, and the scares are very repetitive with a non-engaging story.

I was expecting great things from this game after playing the first amnesia. There was never a scary moment in this game or even a moment where i questioned "Should I really go around that corner/open that door?" I beat it the day in released in about 4 hours. The story is not all that bad really but really thats all there is because like I mentioned there isn't much thats makes the game feel creepy. There was no oil and tinderboxes which was a bummer because it was one of the coolest things from the original. The graphics were pretty cool but the game itself didn't run well, I thought it might get fixed at some point but never did and this was another big issue for me. If you want a true amnesia experience just stick with the original this merely felt like a free to play point and click experience.

Ok everyone, listen here. DO NOT purchase this game based off The Dark Descent. This game, even though it has ties to the first game, is an entirely different experience in itself. DO purchase this game for a very in depth story that you will love once you understand it. The Chinese Room did very well in the presentation of the plot line, be very attentive to all dialogue and notes and be very sure to try and connect all points of the story to truly understand. This game does not rely on quality scares, it relies on the environment and plot points to make something worth following. You can complete this game in a short 5 hour play time making multiple playthroughs possible, I would recommend going back to play it to pick up on anything you miss the first time. Again, this game isn't about the scares, it's more about the story. I give it a solid 7/10 based on plot, gameplay is lacking.

This Follow up of a classic is better on many thing than the so acclaim classic.
Yet, it is not better on things that are more popular.

Difficulty, real and big spooky corridor with ghosts and mutants are not as present in this game than the first one.

The atmosphere is different this time around and the story isn't telling about a curse and madman.

It's more physolophical this time around with a more dramatic vibe.

The monsters and kind of boss in the game appear more possible and not as surnatural as the first amnesia.

All that have just said is actually making this game better in term of originality and keep the series fresh enough to explain why a spiritual sequel was needed. The different kind of experience you can have with this is interesting and if you prefer more unusual sad and horror story, you will probably like more this game.

On my side, this was better than the first, but don't come at me saying it isn't as spooky as the first, I know that, but I have found this sequel to be better to almost erevything else while maintainning a general horror atmosphere. It's more unusual at the same time and that is why this game is better in my opinion.

Without The Dark Descent's sanity mechanics, A Machine For Pigs is creepy and atmospheric, but rarely scary. I don't get the same sense of dread or terror as I did playing The Dark Descent. That said, I did still quite like the game. The environments help to emphasize the scale of the operation and the machine while also looking pretty good. It presents an intriguing story and mystery with some clever ambiguity and morbidly interesting ideas. A Machine For Pigs may not fill your expectations if you're looking for a traditional adventure or horror game, but if you play it with a mind for macabre atmosphere and story, you'll enjoy yourself.

Really fantastic game. Great atmosphere, great story. Excellent addition to the "Amnesia" line. I enjoyed playing this game, and will probably revisit it several times. I do love having my pants scared off from time to time. 9.5/10

I was a vegetarian before playing this game. Before this game I thought that pigs were sweet, innocent creatures, but now I see them for the monsters that they are. Now not a day passes without me eating some sort of pig parts to spite those damn monsters. ♥♥♥♥ you pigs!

10/10 no longer a vegetarian

It's also pretty creepy.

Amnesia A machine for pigs is a new twist on the series. Its heavily focuses on story then action but its not as bad as I make it sound. M4P is actually well thought out and can really make you think a bit. Its not a long game, and in fact its not totally scary, but it is fun and I had a lot of respect for its story. I really hope to see another one like this.

Rating 7/10
Overview: First Person Horror

The Good:

+ Creepy atmosphere set at the very end of the 19th century. The game takes place mostly in factory like setting.

+ The narrative and plot is excellent, journal entries are scattered throughout the game providing pieces of the story. The story touches upon some interesting themes.

+ Light puzzle solving elements to keep things interesting

+The game doesn't overstay its welcome, it is roughly a 4-6 hour experience.

+ The music is excellent and really adds to the overall experience

The Bad:

- The game lacks a lot of the terror from the Dark Descent. Despite the atmosphere, I never really felt threatened in any way. In the entire game there were only a few instances where the enemy would hunt you and even then it was very easy to just out run them to the next area. Part of the problem is that this game heavily streamlined many of the elements from the first game. Death has no consequence, sanity effects gone, refilling the lantern gone... . Many of the things that make the first game so terrifying no longer exist in this game.

- Technically and artistically the game didn't impress me. A lot of the later levels have the 'been there done that' feeling to them. Everything "feels" the same.

Conclusion

This is a game of expectations. If you were expecting the gameplay of Dark Descent then you will be disappointed. What you are playing this game for is the atmosphere, exploration and narrative, just don't expect anything more.
