"Sick, twisted child."

User Rating: 8.5 | Amnesia: The Dark Descent PC
Good:
-Why aren't there more big name horror titles like this?! I suppose companies have gone overboard with pursuing more casual family oriented gamers?
-Focuses on scares and NOT on action like so many franchises today. If you're looking for a game that will scare you this is top of the line.
-Excellent atmosphere and insanity effects. Exploring this game's maze of rooms and items often felt frantic, claustrophobic, and dizzying.
-Sound effects and music are both oppressive and shocking.
-A decent story with multiple endings, requires some reading.
-Sneak, insanity, health, and lighting mechanics work well.

Bad:
-Some of the details from room to room are repetitive such as paintings and various pieces of furniture.
-Would like to see a horror game of this caliber with more realism - I don't think there are too many real world dungeons with prisons, sewers, laboratories, torture chambers, morgues, etc, etc. Horror is usually more powerful when it is presented in an immersive and realistic setting. They've relied just a little too much on brewing magic potions and messing with arcane devices that nobody understands.
-Graphics are just slightly dated.
-Ending felt a bit tacked on.
