The Swine are Rising!

In 2010 Frictional Games terrified the world with the cult horror Amnesia: A Dark Descent. Now they bring you a new nightmare. Created by The Chinese Room, the studio behind Dear Esther, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs is an intense and terrifying journey into the heart of darkness that lurks within us all.

The year is 1899.

Wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus awakes in his bed, wracked with fever and haunted by dreams of a dark and hellish engine. Tortured by visions of a disastrous expedition to Mexico, broken on the failing dreams of an industrial utopia, wracked with guilt and tropical disease, he wakes into a nightmare. The house is silent, the ground beneath him shaking at the will of some infernal machine: all he knows is that his children are in grave peril, and it is up to him to save them.

Step back into the horror.

I'm glad to see someone actually like the game as well as see all the positives and negatives of it rather than just blindly hate it because its not 100% clone of TDD. I enjoyed this game a ton, almost as much TDD, but not quite. Something very underrated about this game was the removal of the closets to hide in on TDD. I mean, its not much fun hiding in a closet everytime a grunt appears, it becomes very predicatable and formulaic, and it isn't scary because you know your safe and it gets boring waiting for monsters to just disappear. Rather it forces you out into the open to either find an actual hiding spot somewhere in the enviroment or you have to run like hell! Something very nice in this game was the outside night scenes that were used, it was so nice to finally go outside in Amnesia, excluding the custom stories. I will say everything as far as the level designs, outdoor scenes, city, the church, basement, machine, it all looked wonderful and it was very pretty to look at. I thought the scene at the church was amazing and it really is when the game turns itself on, going down that staircase to that basement in the dark full of pig cages and the squealing in the distance with the sound of people screaming in pain just set the perfect antidote for fear. The whole concept that they were taking people, sticking them in cages, experimenting on them, turning them into pigs, it was an awesome idea and played on with the fear knowing that the enemies were once human and were tortured and transformed. Some Downfalls I had the most with this game was the fact the lantern flickers when a pigs near, I mean that just warns the player a pigs near and that sorta ruins any suspense build up by giving us a heads up. The game still managed to freak me out though because the dark machine like atmosphere was so foreboding, the experimenting on humans,and when you do see the pigs, they are actually pretty damn scary and are really ****** up looking, just that lantern flickering

Other flaws with the game include a little too much notes and dialogue at the end of the game where there could be a little more gamplay, or too many hits you can take before you die since its more scary when 1 or 2 hits and your dead rather than 3 or 4, but it it still a pretty good game. Its not as good as the original TDD, but its a fun Amnesia game with a different approach and emphasis but its still scary and atmospheric.

For the record, I mean't too include this part on the above comment I made, sorry I couldn't fit it all in!! ^^^^^^^

Amnesia TDD had me stuck and it took rather more day to finish then it should have been but I feel like Amnesia AMFP was just as scary as the first, hell I screamed more then I did for the first.
