    5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Scary April 10, 2011
    Don't let the dated graphics and terrible cover image fool you. If you are looking for a game with a simple, but ingenious style of exploration that gives you a real sense of survival, Lovecraft-esque madness, and true terror, you are in the right place! And for the price, you simply can't pass this game up!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game. Keep the lights turned off! May 18, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    This game is great. It's a horror survival where you wander through an immense castle, searching for clues as to what you need to do to simply not die. The puzzles make you think, but they're not so difficult that you're left with no choice but to search for hints on the web. The entire time you're struggling just to keep your surroundings lit so you're not plunged into eerie darkness, where your character starts to lose his sanity. You do not fight at all in this game, so don't think you're going to jump in guns blazing. Your character needs you to use your wits and figure out how to unravel the mystery of what's happening.

    I can't really say much more than that without giving away anything. If you like horror survival games, you'll more than likely love this. Can't complain about the price, either!

    4.0 out of 5 stars This might just be the creepiest game ever made. November 1, 2013
    By Ryan J
    You wake up in a castle with a note you have written yourself. You cannot remember who or where you are, but your former self is not surprised. The note tells you that you have purposefully forgotten recent events, and that you now have one goal: find and kill a man named Alexander. You don’t know who Alexander is or why you wanted to kill him, but your note warns that you are being chased by a dark shadow that alters reality and that time will be short.

    The dark shadow is a persistent threat that is never directly seen but its presence can always be felt. Earthquakes are tearing the castle apart, and odd noises can be heard coming from outside. However, these are the least of your worries as strange creatures walk the halls of the castle. The castle is impressive – a massive maze of twisting rooms and corridors. The earthquakes are causing parts of the roof to collapse, blocking off passages and creating new ones as you play.

    Light is in limited supply, as candles provide your only means of illuminating the darkness. Tinderboxes are scattered all over the castle, but you never seem to have enough. You also have a lantern that runs on oil, but even that is in limited supply. Staying in the darkness slowly drains your sanity, which is something that could easily be lost in a place like this. You need to treat light like a limited resource, otherwise you could lose your mind.

    You have to stay focused and keep your wits about you. Keeping the darkness at bay is only part of the challenge, as every odd event you witness chews on your soul. Looking too long at the foul creatures could cause you to panic and reveal your position, forfeiting your only advantage: stealth. You will find no weapons to use against the creatures in the castle.

    5.0 out of 5 stars You can't beat this value, really. August 7, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I heard about Amnesia over a year ago, and just never had the motivation to go try it out. Until the fateful day when my friend told me that it was 5 dollars. And I've been anything but underwhelmed. This is easily one of the most immersive, thought-provoking, and downright scary games I've ever had the pleasure to experience. And please play this game at night, in the dark, in an empty house, with noise-cancelling headphones. It makes a huge difference, I promise.

    My only complaint is really my own damn fault, and serves as a reminder for any digital download you'd like to buy: Make sure your machine is up to the specifications of the game. Thankfully, I was still able to use the same code to play the game on my PC after I'd tried to play it on my older laptop.

    Thank you Frictional Games, and keep up your unparalleled work in the Survival/Horror Game genre.

    4.0 out of 5 stars My first "survival horror" experience... September 19, 2013
    I did not know what I was getting into... I had heard this game was scary. But I did not expect to actually be scared by a game.
    This game is the only one that has made me gasp in fear. I didn't know that was possible! But this game is built on a dark, intense atmosphere that kept me in a state of constant anxiety. Constantly looking around every corner, feeling my heart beating faster, wondering if I'm imagining that I saw something in the shadows.
    This game is meant to be played alone, in the dark, with headphones on. It relies on immersion into the experience to scare you. One of the big differences is that you cannot fight enemies like you do in most games. You are helpless against the "monsters" you encounter. All you can do is run and hide in the dark. But if you stay in the dark, you will start to go insane. You can't even look directly at the "monsters" without risk of losing your mind. You have to find oil for your lantern, and use it sparingly, or you risk being stranded in total darkness with no hope, slowly losing your mind.
    The best thing about this game is it's atmosphere. This is the only game I've played, so far, that has kept me in fear and anxiety.
    And since anyone can create their own games (I haven't tried it), there are lots of entirely new stories to download!
    The worst things are the AI. After you figure where "monsters" are, there isn't much to surprise you the next time through. The puzzles were a little irritating for me, because they don't always give much of a clue what should be done, and sometimes the solutions are kind of bizarre.
    Definitely worth it. An experience that makes me want to experience other games in the "survival horror" genre.
