Riguardo questo gioco

Questo mondo è una macchina. Una macchina per porci. Adatta solo a macellare porci.

Dai creatori di Amnesia: The Dark Descent e Dear Esther ecco un nuovo gioco horror in prima persona che ti trascinerà negli abissi della cupidigia, del potere e della follia. Affonderà le fauci fra le tue costole per divorarti il cuore!

Anno 1899

L'abbiente industriale Oswald Mandus si risveglia nel suo letto, tremante per la febbre e tormentato da incubi di un oscuro macchinario infernale. Torturato dalle visioni di una disastrosa spedizione in Messico, lacerato dal fallimento del sogno di un'utopia industriale, tormentato dal senso di colpa e da una malattia esotica, si risveglia immerso in un nuovo incubo. La casa è silenziosa ma un macchinario infernale scuote il terreno sotto i suoi piedi: tutto ciò che sa è che i suoi figli sono in grave pericolo, e che dovrà salvarli.

Punti di forza

  • Un approccio nuovo e originale al mondo di Amnesia, ma rispettoso delle origini.
  • La storia più oscura e terrificante mai raccontata in un videogioco.
  • Colonna sonora mozzafiato opera della premiata compositrice Jessica Curry.

Un vero peccato che siano stati eliminati tutti quegli elementi che in The Dark Descent ti facevano sentire vicino al protagonista e rendevano il gioco più realistico e pauroso.
Se da una parte torna comodo non doversi preoccupare della vita e della sanità mentale del nostro alterego,dall'altra togliendo quest'elemento si perde molto dello spirito del survival horror.

I mostri sono pochissimi e facilmente evitabili, non ti seguono nemmeno :D

Mi aspettavo qualcosa di meglio visto il suo predecessore, ma rimane comunque un bel gioco se si parte dal presupposto che non è altro che un bel film interattivo...
Lo consiglio solo per il fatto che la storia è molto ben riuscita.

(Premettendo che sono un cagasotto)

PRO:
-ottima trama
-ottima colonna sonora
-atmosfera ben riuscita

CONTRO:
-longevità di 6 ore scarse
-crash nei caricamenti con ovvia cancellazione dei dati fino al caricamento precedente
-pessima ottimizzazione (graficamente è uguale identico al primo amnesia ma è infinitamente più pesante)
-capitoli troppo lineari (c'è sempre un unica strada con quasi nessun passaggio che si stacca dal corridoio principale)
-desing dei mostri che confrontato ai mostri del capitolo precendente fanno ridere
-bug ovunque (ho trapassato un muro e sono caduto nel vuoto)
-prezzo troppo elevato (odiernamente sono 17.49 €)
-interattività con gli ambienti quasi nulla
-puzzle davvero troppo basilari
-scomparsa dell'inventario, della sanità mentale, e dell'olio per la lampada (ora è infinita)

Tirando le somme amnesia a machine for pigs ha una trama stupenda ma è fin troppo lineare e confrontato con il capitolo precedente come gioco fa veramente pena.

Gioco di gran atmosfera, addirittura lo considero superiore al primo amnesia sul piano della trama. Purtroppo devo sottolineare due aspetti piuttosto negativi: 1) il gameplay limitato, si tratta in buona sostanza di andare in giro senza fare granchè in concreto se non sfuggire occasionalmente ai mostri o risolvere banali "enigmi"; 2) durata del gioco davvero bassa.
Tutto sommato, però, resta una piacevole esperienza.

The Dark Descent fu una piacevole sorpresa alla sua uscita e attendevo molto questo nuovo capitolo. Purtroppo questo A Machine for Pigs, da ora AMfP, ha deluso le aspettative. Il passaggio di testimone non faceva ben sperare e così è stato, mostrando un deciso passo indietro al capostipite della serie. Oswald, risvegliato da un lungo sonno che lo ha privato temporaneamete di memoria, viene guidato dalle voci dei suoi figli per poi finire in un vero e proprio incubo. The Chinese Room ha voluto principalmente curare il reparto narrativo, abbastanza curato, mentre ha trascurato altri fattori che avevano fatto la fortuna di TDA quali l'implacabilità dei nemici e la sanità mentale del protagonista. I nemici, qui sotto forma di maiali enormi, sono davvero pochi e sono facilmente aggirabili, oltre a non brillare molto di I.A. Credo di essere morto non più di 3 volte in tutto il gioco. Il castello di TDA era un piccolo labirinto, in AMfP invece l'intera avventura è basata su livelli perlopiù lineari e anche abbastanza facili da portare a termine. In poche ore si arriva ai titoli di coda e si rimane con l'amaro in bocca, ritrovandosi un survival horror sufficiente e poco più.

Play for the story and the creepy atmosphere. No horror game excels Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs in those regards.

Note to anyone who has played Amnesia: The Dark Descent:

Please do not take this game as a sequel to Amnesia: The Dark Descent. What many people do wrong with this game is that they go with the mindset of the previous Amnesia - going for the horror.

Now, I'm not saying it's wrong to play horror games for the horror in them, and it definitely is not a surprise why people think of this as a sequel, what with the blaring "Amnesia" in the name. However, while the game does make an occasional reference to the original, it's significantly better to think of this as a stand-alone game.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent was made by Frictional Games. They have made a name for themselves by bringing back the horror in the horror genre. Their games have that creeping atmosphere that you can never be rid of. From Penumbra: Black Plague onwards, they took a theme of defenselessness, which definitely has been a big asset.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs was made by The Chinese Room. When Frictional Games thought about making a sequel to the Amnesia series, they decided to have an other company make it instead. Being impressed by Dear Esther, they approached The Chinese Room for sharing similar mindsets in their game development. Frictional Games did not want The Chinese Room to make a game that is similar to the original, they wanted them to make a game in their own way.

Two different companies make a game of the same world, with the same theme. It's obvious there'll be differences.

From Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, you'll get to experience a creepy, gross, horrifying story of a mad man trying to redeem himself.
From Amnesia: The Dark Descent, you'll get a full-blown horror blast in your face. Scrreeeaaaam.

If I were to compare the two Amnesia games quickly I would say that A Machine For Pigs is more horrific, The Dark Descent is more terrifying.

I prefered The Dark Descent, but A Machine for Pigs is still a superb horror game. A lot of atmosphere, horrific story and solid gameplay. It did not scare me as much as The Dark Descent, but then no other game ever has either.

Darkly atmospheric and beautifully rendered, I thoroughly enjoyed this one, dare I say, more than the first. It abandons the point and click Hidden Object Game mechanics in favor of exploration while masterfully building tension. That's right, it's not a HOG like it's predecessor, which was innovative for it's time and we can still see it's legacy in a brillant masterpiece like Outlast. This one is much more polished and focuses on a cinematic audio that will have you taking off your headphones and turning on the lights to make sure that was from the game and not from the burning carbuncle eyes snorting in the darkness at your window. Often hiding the horrors, it knows that what you can't see will bend your mind on all fours to imagine far worse than any engine can grind up and reanimate. The porcine genius of it all is the sqealing progression of a story line that will raise the bristles down your spine as it roots around, huffing and snuffling, in the fetid mire of your psyche.

Oh man. This game is such a dissapointment.
If ''The Chinese Room'' didnt get involved this could've been so much better.
They didnt try to make Amnesia 2, they tried to make a sequel to Dear Esther.

I loved the story in TDD, it had the perfect balance between gameplay and story. This one is more focused on the story but I couldn't really get into it because it's so effin boring. There was not a single scary moment in this game and the 'monsters' you'll face later on are no threat to you and you can just casually walk past them. Your character is never in any actual danger. You couldn't check your sanity; tinderboxes and oil didn't exist. You don't have an inventory so don't even bother exploring. But why mention it? You can't do that anyway since every door in this game is locked unless you have to actually go through it. If you loved grabbing random sh*t in TDD and throwing it at the enemy or just against a wall - you can't do it in this one cause everything is locked in place.
The nerve wrecking atmosphere from TDD is completey lost, you don't have to worry about oil for your lantern cause it is unlimited.

I quit the game 3 times but I kept giving it a chance because I WANTED it to be good but there is really no hope for this. A Machine for Pigs is a complete let down to every The Dark Descent fan.
The fact that this game is 3-5 hours long is a joke.
So I will say this: This is one of the worst Horror Games I've ever played in my entire life.
It's not even worth a 1 out of 10 so I won't bother rating it.

I will say though, I have much more respect for bacon, now that I know where it comes from. :/

Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs is alright, but nowhere near in comparison to Dark Descent. The atmosphere, sounds and story is quite good, but it lacks enemies, real puzzles and in-depth secrets. It is basically point A to Point B with no backtracking, sidestories or mods to really boot. Basically you get chased by mechanical pigs in dark. What is groovy about it though is that the audio is incredible, the SFX is riveting, and voce acting is quite good. Only thing it lacks is the fear of shadows given to you in the older installment. Get this game when it is on sale, for sure.

List of things that were good in Amnesia The Dark Descent:
- you could light candles with limited supplies of matches
- you had a lantern that could go low on fuel
- you had to manage madness : stay stealthy in the dark and become mad, or get low on resources and be spotted by enemies by lighting stuff but remaining sane. It was smart and a balanced system
- enemies were threatening AND frightening, and hard to outrun

This is also the list of things that have been removed in A Machine For Pigs.
It is closer to Dear Esther than Amnesia. Don't buy if you're looking for a horror game.

Didn't finish it, I was just bored playing it. Not frightening, not involving, not entertaining. And I've seen too many valves.

About as scary as a five foot and senile man, in his late seventies, attempting to rob you with a blunt fork, in broad daylight.

I like it.

I do not like many games. I am ridiculously picky, but this game was good enough to get me to write a review.

It has an excellent story (read the notes you find dammit), creepy atmosphere, and keeps a good pace. It is a short, but worthwhile game to play through.

I will be completely honest here, I used a walkthrough for this and played it in a fully lit room, and sped my way to the end in about two hours.

The game is no where near as scary as the original Amnesia, but I still ended up going through multiple pairs of underwear. The puzzles are decent, however I don't see how anyone could work some them out if they didn't have a guide.

The game does also have some serious performance issues, no matter what settings I changed, the frame rate dropped rapidly between 60 fps and 30 fps. Not sure why, it may just of been me, but my rig is more than powerful enough to run this.

If you haven't played an Amnesia game before, I'd definitely recommend the original over this one, however Machine for Pigs is still a good game.

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.

Certainly feels like I am playing another "The Chinese Room" game. To me, it feels like Dear Esther but with the "Amnesia" name slapped on it. You have very little to no interaction with your environment. No inventory. You spend the whole time just walking. Atleast in the first Amnesia you had puzzles to complete and had to manage your lantern. The times when you would come into contact with the monster were predictable. I never really felt scared to search an area because anytime I would see the monster it would come in the form of a mini jump scare for its reveal.

Here, it is nothing like that and the AI is horrid. There is one part where you need to go down a hallway and the exit is to the right. But to the left it branches off a to a small path with which the monster does laps of. You could sneak past. OR do what I did and just run past and as soon as you go through the door the monster doesnt follow because invisible walls they can't past. It was honestly the stupidoust thing I've ever seen. It was an encounter that was absolutely pointless. I made a little picture to show below. But anyone that played it long enough and got to this part would know how stupid it was.

Excuse the horrible picture I attempted to make.

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.

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.

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.

I think Machine for Pigs is a failure. But it is such an interesting, artful failure that it's nearly a success. I'm not sure how much I'd recommend it to horror fans, but I think it's a must-play for anyone interested in developing horror games. First, because it tells one of the most intelligent stories in horror gaming, and second, because it provides so many great examples of how not to make a narrative-focused horror game. Some of which aren't immediately obvious. I personally didn't realize before how important environmental interaction in a narrative-focused game was until I played A Machine for Pigs and saw how detrimental static environments could be to immersion.

It's not exactly like The Dark Descent, for sure. But too many people evaluate A Machine for Pigs on the standard of how similar it is to its predecessor, too afraid to look at it on its own merits. Indeed, there are fewer gameplay elements, such as an infinite lamp duration, easier/fewer puzzles, and an overall lower danger level. But what AMFP has, it does spectacularly. The Chinese Room took a more story-heavy approach and crafted the world around how it's told, and it's a tale well worth hearing. The environments are beautifully constructed, the voicework fits the characters perfectly, and Jessica Curry's music is spectacular. It's like a roller coaster: just because you're not pushing the carts yourself doesn't mean it's not a enjoyable, thrilling ride.

People looking for a game that will leave them petrified with fear will be more at home with The Dark Descent. But if you enjoyed the story of The Dark Descent and want to lose yourself in a tale just as gripping and harrowing, definitely give A Machine for Pigs a shot!
