Why you should sink into the cold, stark embrace of SOMA

MWEB GameZone writes: "SOMA takes players to the crushing isolation of the deep to face their ideas of identity, consciousness, and what it means to be human.

The only way out is to do something unimaginable.

5 Reasons you should be excited to descend into SOMA's cold, stark embrace."

The story is too old to be commented.

Another horror game. 2015 is definitely the year of the horror.

Definitely does seem to be - lets face it, if horror games are done well, you get a real thrill out of playing them. Just don't make them the gaming version of a slasher movie - those are dull. I like clever horror with nice twists.

I watched a piece of that gameplay and I'm scared already. I'm sure horror fans will love it!

Sillicur1137d ago

Looks so good, cant wait to be scared out of my mind !

SOMA looks properly terrifying. Interesting that you may be a robot yourself. The backstory's pretty intense from the trailers.

I have a good idea of what happens but chill with the potential spoilers, this game has some wicked twists in it, just let it come naturally.

plut0nash1137d ago

heh it was hinted in the first few trailers. Don't think it's a spoiler. Much could change.

The trailer where he wakes up in that room and sees the brain hooked up to wires? The one where he finds the injured robot? The only time i saw a spoiler was on an extensive let's play.

Plus many ppl have not seen a whole lot on this game and would like to go into it fresh. It's much better that way.

If u plan on buying SOMA then stay away from any information or trailers, it's far more interesting that way.

Soma in a sense is a mix between Bioshock and Outlast, mechanically and horror wise it's similar to Outlast and it's setting and feel is similar to Bioshock. A beautiful mixture.

Much like Outlast there is no combat, but for anyone who enjoyed Outlast, Amnesia, Alien iso, or for anyone who loves a phenomenal sci-fi/horror-esque story then SOMA is for you.

This is very high brow sci-fi and very thought provoking, September 22nd PS4 and pc.

This is very high brow sci-fi and very thought provoking.

And exactly why it's a fascinating game. Well said dude.

Thanks bro, i'd like to see more publicity for SOMA, it deserves it. This is one of the most fascinating and well written sci-fi games ever made. Jump on board.
