CFD!'s Beki Sutcliffe explores the limits of fear and sanity in this new PC title from the team behind the Penumbra games:
"It’s not often that a game will begin by telling you to not even try to fend off the creatures it throws at you. And even less often will you come across a game that will explicitly tell you to just run away. But as you fire up Frictional Games’ latest survival horror-fest, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, you’re warned to do just that.
"Having no way to defend yourself at all is something that separates Amnesia from the rest of the bunch – you are completely powerless, other than to hide in the darkest corners you can find, with the creaking sounds of the castle walls and the footsteps of unmentionable creatures closing in making you almost too afraid to breathe."
