I can see why there's mixed feeling about it. It's not a bad
game, but it's not great either. It had the tools to be better, but I felt like it wasn't utilized right. Ignoring the 'Amnesia' in the title, I mean as a Psychological-Horror game it left me on the fence. I ain't no critic, but I always been a fan of horror, suspense and this just left me apathetic.
In short: Don't expect much if you're going to play it. I can recommend it for the atmosphere and theme, but if your looking for story it's aight
Long Version: Like I said before, this has the tools. And it's frustrating every time I think about it how much of BETTER game this should've been. They had the scenery, atmosphere, and MUSIC downpack but there's other stuff that could've been executed better.
What I mean is the writing. At point the buildup just stopped , and I felt I got left out on the mystery and suspense. Me thinking "What the ♥♥♥♥ is going on, Who, When, Where, etc." for too long put me out of the immersion
that I didn't understand or didn't care anymore.
By the penulimate, I FELT that ♥♥♥♥ was getting real. The music was awesome and it got dramatic and passionate. I just didn't quite understand for what reason, and that sucks. It's like walking in on the middle of a movie and a bunch of stuff is happening that makes you wonder why it's happening, but the game doesn't tell you. You just wander around dark corriders hearing how nuts the main character turned out to be.
Short part 2: If you like old timey English and drama, run past 2/3 of the game and learn what NOT do if you want to want to make/write your own spooky thing.
