Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a first person horror game set in the 19th Century. You play as Daniel, who wakes up with amnesia in a dark Prussian castle. Finding out how you got there becomes possibly the scariest video game you'll ever play.
The core gameplay of Amnesia: The Dark Descent is exploration, puzzle solving and avoiding monsters. The horrors Daniel confronts threaten his sanity, so must be avoided as much as possible. This is a challenge in itself, and you may also find controlling your own fear becomes too much!
The scariest PC game ever?
Daniel can't fight the monsters he encounters, and if he fails to avoid them, he must run away into the darkness to hide. This can make Amnesia: The Dark Descent a very panicky game, as running blindly into the dark is exactly what you don't want to do! The graphics are dark and atmospheric, but its the sound that makes Amnesia: The Dark Descent truly horrifying. The moans, screams and other effects really heighten your sense of dread and are beautifully timed for maximum effect.
There are multiple endings to Amnesia: The Dark Descent, so you can play through more than once if you dare. The tension and scares never let up and, unlike some horror games, the gameplay never gets in the way of the terror either. As well as sounds and shocks, the story in Amnesia: The Dark Descent is disturbing, and learning the truth about Daniel's amnesia is horrifying enough even without the monsters and darkness.
If you are a fan of horror games, Amnesia: The Dark Descent is an essential game. I can promise you won't be disappointed.
