    Penumbra is a pretty good horror game that i bought after playing Amnesia thinking that it would be just as good as the original. While it was still good it wasn't AS good, the controls were more sluggish, the graphics were worse and when you opened doors it wasn't as responsive. It was still scary but not as scary as Amnesia, it put some horror games to shame such as the overrated Resident evil series but still eclipsed by games such as Call of Cthulu and Silent Hill. It's still a good game but if your looking for a game as good as Amnesia this isn't it, but its still good. Expand
