    The hallmark of this game is its ability to keep you on the edge. It's downside is it doesn't really offer much new.

    I was excited about this game after seeing the positive reviews. Though I never fully read the reviews to ensure I didn't spoil anything, I knew enough that I was anxious for this new horror title. ...

    Scariest, most stressful game I have ever played.

    A scary game, but also somewhat of a missed oppertunity.

    I haven't been scared by a game or a movie in a long time. This is due to two reasons: I spent a lot of my younger days playing Resident Evil & Silent Hill, so they've, in a sense, hardened me for all...

    Great game, great way to immerse yourself on a great horror/survival game!

    OMG! What a game, different, yet compelling and addictive. You don't need a shooter to have fun playing a computer game!

    Rated on July 08, 2012 by TheWriter30

    What a game! I usually love different, hard games, eg. Civilization, Hitman, (not all of them), Stalker...etc. Now different has been mistaken with boring or "not quite there" in the past so I wa...

    Terrifying and beautiful at the same time.

    Rated on September 02, 2012 by MegKool

    It is rare to find a real horror game in today's gutless society. Amnesia is the epitamy of fear. It takes your breathe away and refuses to loosen its grasp on your sanity. For those with weak hearts...
