Amnesia: The Dark Descent Editor's Review
Find you way back to yourself with this first person adventure game for Windows.
Its time to take a break...I think. At least, that's what I think I remember... This is one of the reasons why taking a break is important. When you do take a break, you just might like Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It’s a first person adventure game for Windows.
Amnesia is an first person shooter adventure game. The game allows for physics-based puzzles and interactions such as opening doors and fixing machinery. In-game objects are operated by toggle. To open a door, for instance, you hold down a mouse button and then push (or pull) the mouse. This gives you stealth, allowing you to peek out a barely-opened door or to open it slowly and sneak away. This also adds a degree of difficulty to the game as it is now possible to push open a "pull" door while something tries to sneak up behind you.
Health is not the only attribute indicator displayed in the game. You also have to manage your sanity. For example, being in dark too long, witnessing unsettling events, or staring at monsters will reduce your sanity, causing hallucinations, which in turn will and draw the attention of more monsters. Light sources help restore your sanity, and if none are available, you can use a tinderbox to ignite candles. You can also light an oil-burning lantern found near the beginning of the game. Unfortunately, tinderboxes and oil are both limited; and standing in a light source also makes the player easier to spot by monsters.
If a monster spots you, you must flee. Amnesia have any weapons. You have to find hiding places or barricade doors with rocks, chairs, etc. Unfortunately, monsters are able to tear down doors and to kick obstacles out of the way. They're also fast once they've spotted you. Players can also choose to hide in the shadows, but again, if you hide in the shadows, you risk loosing sanity points.
App Pro’s: cool scenery and graphics, the game makes you think.
App Con’s: No weapons.
Conclusion: Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a cool looking game. The graphics are really well done, and the story line is mostly interesting. The game doesn't provide you with any weapons, so if you want to survive, you're going to have to think on your feet.
