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.

(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.

Dopo aver finito il Primo Capitolo (Amnesia: The Dark Descent), tutto contento di quel che avevo giocato, mi sono buttato a capofitto su questo suo seguito speranzoso di vedere se gli sviluppatori avessero limato quel poco che mancava nello scorso capitolo per elevarsi nel panorama Indie come miglior Saga Horror, ci saranno riusciti? Scopriamo Insieme

COMPRALO PERCHE:
-Ci ho pensato un buon 10 minuti, ma non ho davvero trovato nulla che valga la pena essere citato in questa categoria, mi spiace, al contrario invece....ah si
-Il Comparto Sonoro è il medesimo del precedente capitolo, ottimo era quello, ottimo è questo

LASCIALO A STEAM PERCHE:
-Graficamente è migliorato vero, ma non si vede davvero un tubo e quando si vede qualcosa perma quella patina blu fastidiosa, ma cosa diavolo hanno combinato? Eppure gli screenshot qui su Steam fan vedere ben altri ambienti...atmosfera completamente rovinata e sinceramente l'ambientazione a livello artistico, mi sembra tutto fuorchè ispirata come il capitolo precedente che è ancor più grave...Passo Indietro
-A Livello di Puro Gameplay, oltre a non far per nulla paura (il Porcouomo sembra essere uscito direttamente dalle tartarughe Ninja, realmente, ha spaventato qualcuno?) abbiamo una complessità dei Puzzle quasi totalmente rimossa (se non giusto per un paio che rimangono comunque sotto a quelli visti nel primo capitolo...colpa anche di un inventario totalmente rimosso), una rimozione inspiegabile della barra psiche che era, una delle cose davvero ottime del capitolo precedente per aumentare la tensione della sessione, un aumento esponenziale della propria vita rendendo gli scontri con Peppa Pig quasi un formalità di poco conto e per finire la cosa più grave, la torcia illimitata che anzi, ti fa da Radar per i Nemici....tutto questo per dire, ma gli sviluppatori ci hanno preso davvero per allocchi?
-Storia che oltre a non essere molto entusiasmante è anche povera di contenuti e riflessione (sembra come se gli sviluppatori in questo caso si fossero concentrati meno sul rifflessivo ma più sul visivo...certo che se poi in game ha quell'alone blu ovunque insopportabile e poco pratico....). La Boccio anche perchè si fa un uso dei Bambini che non mi piace (come se si volesse creare lo scandolo...davvero squallido per quanto mi riguarda)
-Longevità commentatela voi che non ne ho più la forza dopo quello che ho detto, rigiocabilità come per il primo capitolo, ininfluente
-Assenza Totale di Achievement e di Steam Cards

So già di tirar in ballo qualche critica ma questo, è uno dei giochi più pessimi a qui abbia mai giocato, non ha nulla per qui valga la pena esser giocato e ricordato.
In definitiva diciamo chiaramente che lo consiglio solo a chi mi odia e non mi vuole bene e sarà per un altra volta (una ad uno palla al centro, speriamo nel terzo capitolo e che invertano subito la marcia D...Degrado)

VOTO 30/100

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.

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.

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.

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.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs - The second main game from Amnesia series. After the amazing Amnesia: The Dark Descent people wanted next Amnesia, much better than first game, but is it really better? I won't anwer that question, I'll just say that it's "Different", but mostly in positive aspects.

First you have to remember that this game wasn't created by Frictional Games like first Amnesia. It was created by The Chinese Room (You can know them if you've played Dear Esther). Ok, but let's talk about the game!

Most of the players didn't like Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, because a few important aspects from Amnesia: The Dark Descent were cut off in this game. There wasn't any inventory, you couldn't pick up many items like chairs, boxes etc, no tinderbox to pick up and your source of light is unlimited. So the survival aspect of the game don't exist. The only items you can pickup are letters, papers and important items that you have to pickup to move on with story.

Monsters aren't that scary like in first game, but still i have to say that power of imagination in that game still works! I was scared because of simply noises and i thought there is monster nearby. Also i should note that there aren't the "warning alert" when the monster is next to you. That alert was in first Amnesia and in my opinion it's better that it's don't exist here, because if you won't be careful you can me surprised in "negative" aspect of course! Don't get me wrong, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is still very scary game, but you can't compare it to the first game.

Soundtrack is amazing! It was composed by Jessica Curry (Same artist like in Dear Esther). The style is again different than from the first game, but it's also amazing and it's fit with all those factory levels and London from fall of XIX century. Go ahead and try it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fkVvNMuJsA

You could thought that i already said the most important things from that game, but nope, not yet! Now is The Story

The story in this game... I can't describe it, if i'll say it's amazing it's not enough. In this aspect Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs owning the first game, no doubt about it! It's very emotional, sad and you'll think about it after you'll finish the whole game. I won't say any spoilers, but to make you curious i'll just say that the "Pigs" in the title of the game is an ambiguous word... In my opinion one of the best stories i've ever been seeing in video games. You should play this game even only because of that story. Also i recommend read all the notes that you'll find in the game from the chronological order after you'll finish the game.

I'm really sad seeing all those negative reviews, most of these people were just looking for Amnesia: The Dark Descent 2, but I really understand them. I was also a little bit dissapointed when i realised i couldn't take chairs and other objects and throw them away, honestly I don't understand why developers removed that, but when i finished the game I was glad i pre-ordered it.

I rate this game 8/10 (Very Good), mostly because of that great story, soundtrack and the whole atmosphere. It isn't that scary like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, so if you're looking for only scary horror game and you don't care about other aspects, then you should buy other game. My english isn't perfect so I apologise for any grammar mistakes, I hope i'll be better in future!

I wanted to like this, I really did. But the troubles start before you've even properly begun. The game is full of bugs. Forums are filled with people (myself included) trying to figure work-arounds for issues like constant in-game lag (has nothing to do with the quality of your rig or having the necessary audio/video drivers updated), random graphic hitches that filter the screen in a blue, washed-out color, and audio stuttering. Some of the fixes work, though mostly for temporary periods. If you do manage to run the game properly after all that:

PROS:

+ The environment is great. The mansion is atmospheric, spooky and interesting to explore.
+ The voice acting is very good.

CONS:

- First and foremost: The game is just not scary. It's not Amnesia. It's Dark Esther. It's not survival and stealth, it's exploration. There's next to no tension.
- The tinderboxes (requiring you to work on conserving them for light) are gone. Instead you have a lantern that never goes out. Considering that the mansion is pretty well lit 90% of the time, I found I hardly needed to use it (even with Gamma turned down)
- The sanity system is gone, and with it the tense effort to remain sane in the wake of prowling monstrosities.
- The monsters. The pigmonsters are not scary. They're just silly looking. They don't pursue you with the intensity of the creatures in Dark Descent and you can look at them without fear of insanity, which whittles away the mysterious fear factor very quickly.
- The story is just dull. There is some possibility in the beginning that it might go in a certain, disturbing direction based on the narrative given, but it turns out to be pretty boring and a bit nonsensical. The characters just aren't very interesting. You don't really care very much.

For the money you pay, I really can't recommend this one. If you must, buy the steam code for it on 99Gamers for cheap, instead of throwing $22 out for it.

Do not buy this game if you're a fan of the original. In my oppinion, a machine for pigs was a huge dissapointment, and an insult to the original. Here are a few reasons:
1) the message.Yes. I get it. The pigs are symbolism for men. STOP THRUSTING IT IN MY FACE LIKE AN ERECT ♥♥♥♥
2) No more physics. One fun thing to do in the original was too ♥♥♥♥ around with the physics. They weren't amazing but were still fun. In this game it's a bit different, you cant interact with almost any new objects, and even some of the old objects have had physics removed.
3) Sanity effects and inventory removed. Another appeal of the original was the sanity system. While not perfect the sanity system had some fun elements that could make the game much scarier at times. And the inventory system could to if you ever ran out of tinderboxes or oil at a bad moment. Not here! You instead get a lantern which occasionaly flickers.Brilliant
4)The monsters weren't scary. While i was playing at the beginning, I was ♥♥♥♥ing terrified of the horrors that hid within the mansions. Then I eventually got to the first encounter, and lo and behold the monster didn't scare or frighten me.In fact the stupid prick didn't even notice me, he saw my charecter flailing his Lantern like an idiot, and walked right past me. Even when they did notice me, these stupid ♥♥♥♥ers accuracy was worse than a stormtroopers. Tehy'd try to hit me and accidentily knock on their neighbors door and get into a friendly conversation. The only time I felt like i was in actual danger was suring the bit you had to run through the town, while a pig frantically chased you trying to get a autograph.
5) The water part. Instead of being open int he first game where you had to hop around on crates and throw meat to district the thing, you were dropped into a fenced off area where running straight was the only option. All you had to do was hold Shift+W and occasionly turn to mouse, and you were fine.
6)and the puzzles. They were ♥♥♥♥♥♥.

Great game! I was hesistant to buy the game considering the reviews, but I'm glad I did. While it's true that it's "dumbed-down" (no insanity, health, or inventory), I feel like it makes you focus more on the environment and the story itself. Definitely doesn't deserve the negative reviews it recieved. It's a quality game.

Not interactive like the first one, some say the story made it creepier but for me the gameplay not being scary made it really suck. I wish I could return it, honestly. Waste of money.

If you're looking for more of what made the first Amnesia so good, you'll probably be let down. This one takes things in a very different direction and dials back the scares and puzzles in favour of sheer atmosphere. It still can be unsettling in parts if you let yourself get sucked into it, and has excellent writing and sound design that really make it memorable. More a very creepy playable horror story and less an outright horror game, you'll enjoy it if you like more emphasis on enviromental horror than the threat of monsters. Experimental and worth experiencing, but not for everyone.

Finally tried this, and was let down. From the start there is no feeling of immersion, fear, nevermind horror. Runs very poorly on my computer, which is admittedly old, but which still can run much prettier games like Farcry 2 and Fallout New Vegas. This one looks worse and runs worse than either of those.

Main reason I don't recommend this is a very poor sense of immersion. You can pick up some objects, but everything else is static. I threw a chair on a table with bottles and cutlery, and the chair just slammed into them, nothing happened. Also, although I didn't play for too long, there was no sense of urgency, and I just didn't care about the story at all. I just walked through the house, heard some rumbling and saw lights flickering. Not scary, nothing to do with horror.

Also, some triggered events were just really annoying. Blurring effects and limited movement, and for what? Atmosphere? I wanted to like this, but really I can't.

An honest review:

Okay, so a lot and I mean a LOT have been disappointed with Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. So, you right now, reading this, might be wondering "Should I get this game?" Well, here is the answer. (In details)

The beauty of this game is not in the scares, nor the chase scenes, nor graphics but also with the story itself. It does have its moments, and it does have its creepy scenes, just not as good as Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The true beauty of this game is in its story. The story of this game in my opinion is just really nice. There is a lot of hidden symbolism that I think everyone should appreciate (I do) What makes this game unique is the fact that this story can be/is related to our modern lives in a way or another. It also relates to our parents and grandparents. What I liked about this story is that we can all relate to it somehow which makes it a little better. The story in Amnesia: The Dark Descent is amazing as well but I have not seen such similar hidden symbolism. Those messages throughout that adorn the story make it stand out. Sure it may be a little complex to comprehend and maybe the story may not be explained as much due to some reason which I will explain a little further but it is a really good game if you look at it in a different perspective. Okay, so this game somehow relates to political movements and actual tragic events that happened where some people might be offended if elaborated in the game. Those who understood it appreciated it and those who did not understand the hidden messages and symbolism found that it made no sense and that the story sucks as well. I really liked this game due to its story.

If you are looking for:
-A game that will make you feel scared ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.
-A game that has terrifying chase scenes.
-A game that has extra ordinary graphics.
-A game with complex puzzles that will need you to think heavily.
-A super long campaign that will take more than 10 hours of gameplay.
Then this is not the game for you.

If you are looking for:
-A game that has some terrifying scenes but not the scariest out there.
-A game that has a beautiful story with hidden messages throughout long notes found during the gameplay.
-A horror game that concentrates on storyline more than to try to spook you.
-A game that has an average length of gameplay (neither short nor long).
-A game that has descent graphics yet not the best out there.
Then this might be the game for you.

Honestly, I don't like pointless games that just want you to feel scared for the sake of it. Also, for the people who say they could have added more scare scenes and some enemies that cannot be avoided easily then I will have to say it may have worked but then it would seem to be a little unnecessary. I mean, like in some games out there where they just overload with jumpscares and that after a while gets frustrating. (In Amnesia: The Dark Descent the amount of scares and chase scenes is just perfect) but in other games like Outlast or the DLC of it to be exact feel a little repetitive and just too sloppy. You would only like the game if you want to feel scared. Also Alien: Isolation is an example that the scares just feel that they are too much and you keep dying constantly. Luckily, I like both haha, games that make me feel scared and games with good stories! Anyway, if you are planning to buy this game but not too sure buy it now when there is still a sale! Happy holidays!

As a big fan of good, subtle horror, and amazing stories, I was a huge admirer of "Amnesia: The Dark Descent", and when I heard about the second game, I couldn't contain my excitement. That was sort of my first mistake. Having huge expectations after the first game, I sadly had to be let down. This does not mean the game is bad, this just means, that after "The Dark Descent" it probably just had to go downhill. And even though I would love to judge the two games separately, comparing the two is sort inevitable.

On the up side, I believe the story in this game is way more interesting, heart touching, and creepy at the same time, than the intricate, but slightly… “whatever” story in the first game. It is more personal, and emotional, and the outcome is way more disturbing.
The music has definitely left an impression, and I still listen to "Mors Praematura" from time to time, cause the atmosphere it created was divine. Graphics are noticeably better, as the game is a fresher release.

Yet, as I moved through the empty house, as I watched Mandus' story unwind, I felt complete peace. And this is not what you want to feel, when playing a horror game. Maybe I have developed a strong resistance to scares, cause of my love for horror, but as hard as the game tried - I just could not get scared.

Even though I love the design of the monsters in this game (whom I will refrain from calling by their name, in case you would rather be surprised), I found it hard to fear them. Found them extremely disturbing, but also had a strong sense of pity for them. They just couldn't get me in the "oh crap, oh crap, oh crap, running away" mode, that the first game had me in most of the time.

Also the puzzle difficulty in this game is very low, and doesn't require any real thinking skills. Which can be considered an advantage by some, but for me is again, very disappointing.

So in conclusion, I would suggest playing this game for the interesting story, which left a strong unease in my heart, and the amazing music that stays with you for a long time. But if you are expecting getting really scared, or a good mind boggling puzzle, you will probably be left with a feeling of letdown. All in all, not a bad game, just probably not what you would expect.

★★☆☆☆

Pros:
- The game starts really strong, I was creeped out by the mansion with its decor, stuffed animals and was interesting to explore.
- Some of the victorian streets were very befitting to the games style.
- That pigs head wasnt there before was it.
- The whole game is very well voiced acted.

Cons:
- The puzzles are extremely obvious and theres little difference in them.
- At first I was reading notes and listening for every sound but as the story went on the less I cared, its characters were severely lacking making it extremely dull and on a whole the game is uneventful.
- The pigs are pathetic, they're not scary and their attacks barely affect you. Theres no need to hide and you can easily run by then in your few encounters.
- Machine for pigs did nothing to build on the original and instead decided against all of the aspects that made it great, theres no survival or fear for your life.
- Apart from the very early stages theres barely an ounce of genuine tension. As you went further down this worsened.
- I suffered like many others with random lag when the talking scenes occured which really ruined any immersion I had, especially towards the terrible ending.

Verdict: This game offers the biggest deterioration from start to finish I have ever seen and it results in being a boring experience.
