5.0 out of 5 stars Great survival horror adventure game May 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Stuck in a dark mine shaft I illuminate my surrounds with a glow stick. Like something from the film Decent I hear a growling up ahead. Using a rock I picked up I managed to smash the ice from the hatch that led in here... but why am I in here anyway? Slowly I explore this macabre old mine/WWII bunker and unravel the mystery.

3 Games for 9.99? A strange combination of survival horror and point and click adventure? It works. Fight mechanics are not these games strong suit but then, that's why you can hide or lure beast away with meaty treats. Runs great on Win7 64bit and the organic feel to the puzzles is fantastic. Moving barrels to block the door, sliding boxes and using a section of a ladder to reach a crevice, and tossing a stick of dynamite into a nest of flesh poisoning spiders. Good times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why didn't I play this earlier? December 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
After playing the game Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which was also a terrific game, I wanted to try other works by Frictional games and came upon Penumbra. With an increasingly interesting storyline and great ideas in terms of gameplay, this is one of the best survival-horror games I've played. The fighting system is weird and will take a while to get used to, as I'm sure most people will say. The way you interact with the world is through your mouse and the motions you do with it, which is very immersive and can be very suspenseful at times, especially when trying to run from something, open/close a door, and then trying to barricade it. Overall, a very good game with some innovative ideas. Definitely get it if you are a fan of survival-horror, great sound design, and a game that can create an atmosphere.

Installed perfectly on Windows 7 64-bit, using amazon downloader. Was quick and painless, no cdkeys required. ATI mobility Radeon HD 4870 video card, latest drivers/directX, no video card problems like other reviewers. Good deal. Amnesia was the best but if you wanted more from the creators this is worth it for the price. Resolution is a little low, not sure if theres a way to mod the game for high res LCDs.

Penumbra very much feels like a beta-ish amnesia. Some sound effects are even the same which i thought kinda lazy, but overall a refreshingly original type of gaming, departing from brainless FPS. This was produced by a very small team - support talented indie developers; I feel good, money well spent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Scary horror game, but became tedious June 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
This dark horror setting created many scary moments, but ultimately the way you needed to manipulate the objects (especially in chase moments or times the game required you to be so precise) became frustrating and tedious for me...and killed my overall enjoyment of this game.

There's a difference between being successful meeting the storyline challenges vs having to endure what ultimately resulted in manipulating your mouse and keyboard to get through the obstacles as the real challenge. This game is more suitable for a generation who have grown up with shooter-type games and can text 100 char/min on a 2 inch keypad.

While I like action games also, my preference is for games with storylines which rely on thinking first. This was frustrating to play, and I'm glad this was a inexpensive download.

Update: and when the game is too frustrating...(a few tweaks in the config file, at least I could save my progress after each board I jumped carrying explosives!) Just like the Kobayashi Maru! Finally!

Addendum: the final chapter Penumbra: Requiem is such a disappointment. It felt like a hollow creation of leftover pieces from the first two games just to capitalize on the popularity. A lack of intensity and danger from creatures that could pose a danger, to a geometrical approach to solving puzzles, though clever, made this a more of a brain-teaser exercise. That's all it was, and the ending didn't complete the storyline, just a BS of what reality it really could be. They should have wrapped up Black Plaque and left on a high note.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Plague is Thrilling. November 1, 2011
By Jane
Verified Purchase
What a great miniseries! The game is a little older now, and I'm sure it wasn't beating down the door of anyone's graphic card even when it was released. That said, the game ambiance is wonderful and very scary. The character you play is not particularly good at anything- he's just a guy who has a panic attack whenever he looks a monster in the eye. You spend a lot of your time hiding. In the first game you actually have a few blunt weapons that you could use- in the second game, you have absolutely nothing and can only rely on your hiding skills and wits to get around. The third has a lot more puzzles. The plot line starts out vague, but as you learn you love it.

I found Black Plague to be the scariest part of Phillip's journey. I actually couldn't even play it alone! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game July 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
Games come in all shapes and sizes with much variation unless you're Call of Duty. From the makers of Amnesia comes Penumbra, similar in style Penumbra plays much like Amnesia. I personally am the biggest fan of "scary" games, but I am a huge fan of the Vidda Gamez. One thing to mention, this is not a STEAM key.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like
It's dated but performs super well. Fun to play but short. I highly recommend you play the game. It's a bit quirky to manipulate your environment but it doesn't get in the way.
