EpicDome: Amnesia A Machine for Pigs Review (PC, 2013)

The Illusive Man says:"Pigs to the Slaughter

I must say after playing Outlast, with its refusal to ease up on the tension, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs provides a strikingly different alternative to generating fear. This is the follow up to 2010′s Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Developers Frictional Games and The Chinese Room are careful not to label this a sequel, as while it’s done in the spirit of Dark Descent, it does not follow the same character or story. The dreadful feeling you get while exploring is still prevalent, but gone are some of the features that made Dark Descent unique; namely the sanity meter. Also missing is the need to manage resources like tinderboxes and lamp oil. And in their place is an everlasting lamp, and some deadly puzzles – which are only deadly in the sense that they kill any enjoyment from a gameplay perspective. However, like a well-oiled machine, the components of the story work together, and present a generally foreboding psychological experience." (Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, PC) 7.9/10
