About This Game

The last remaining memories fade away into darkness. Your mind is a mess and only a feeling of being hunted remains. You must escape.
Awake...
Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a first person survival horror. A game about immersion, discovery and living through a nightmare. An experience that will chill you to the core.
You stumble through the narrow corridors as the distant cry is heard.
It is getting closer.
Explore...
Amnesia: The Dark Descent puts you in the shoes of Daniel as he wakes up in a desolate castle, barely remembering anything about his past. Exploring the eerie pathways, you must also take part of Daniel's troubled memories. The horror does not only come from the outside, but from the inside as well. A disturbing odyssey into the dark corners of the human mind awaits.
A sound of dragging feet? Or is your mind playing tricks on you?
Experience...
By using a fully physically simulated world, cutting edge 3D graphics and a dynamic sound system, the game pulls no punches when trying to immerse you. Once the game starts, you will be in control from the beginning to the end. There are no cut-scenes or time-jumps, whatever happens will happen to you first hand.
Something emerges out of the darkness. It's approaching. Fast.
Survive...
Amnesia: The Dark Descent throws you headfirst into a dangerous world where danger can lurk behind every corner. Your only means of defense are hiding, running or using your wits.
Do you have what it takes to survive?

Highly recommend. Started off slow, I wasn't sure what was supposed to happen. But one night sat down and decided to give it an hour. Glad I did.

Amazing game, got me into the horror genre years ago. Just now writing a review today. Nothing in depth at all, it's just a great game and I love how you can only run and hide.

With friends on the couch behind you, or solo, this game is one hell of an experience. It's getting visually old, but the gameplay and levels are still working great even today after so many horrific fp. Amnesia is one true quality title. With a weird story, some brutal encounters and controller drops.

Now, for people used to this kind of game, it would be of limited interest if it wasn't for the randomized AI appearence system. The recipe is overused nowadays and if you played plenty of those, Amnesia will give you its scarejump quota, but don't expect someting revolutionary. It's classic FP horror, but it's classic efficient at least.

an epic adventure, high modding capability with various options involved in where u can see as custom story. Good riddles and legendary atmosphere, what u would wanna have comes with it..

Gameplay,story, ambience, story development, the horror, anything u may need...

definitely a must!

the only problem as you may guess is the same that u may see in horror games tho, replayability. you end the main story and its over. although u have the chance of multiple endings, it does not save the repetative feeling once u set foot in the halls of Brennenburg.

Whatsoever, actually behind the customizable stories apart from the main one should be a hand not to give limited access to the game from the gamers' side. You can easily mod the game and enjoy your time.

One of the first if not the first great horror game to be made,with no way to defend yourself this game makes you look left and right, hide in closets and even throw boxes and chairs to escape with your life. Interesting story and many different maps to be played thanks to modders.

8/10

You should read this.

who said that flying naked men couldn't be scary?
also who said that naked monsters couldn't be scary?
who said that paintings cant be creepy?
who said that there can't be any dead naked men?
who said that flying naked men couldn't jumpscare you?

well, Amnesia the dark descent includes all these things.

who said that games cant have problems that last for years?

amnesia also includes that.

who said that you should read this?

I SAID THAT YOU SHOULD READ THIS!
