    AMY has an awful checkpoint system that makes the game truly frustrating and tedious to play, and I suspect that this defect, more than anything else, accounts for the extreme hostility of a lot of the reviews. If the saving issue were fixed, though, it would be solidly in the "okay" category -- not the second coming of Resident Evil, perhaps, but certainly not an unmitigated disasterAMY has an awful checkpoint system that makes the game truly frustrating and tedious to play, and I suspect that this defect, more than anything else, accounts for the extreme hostility of a lot of the reviews. If the saving issue were fixed, though, it would be solidly in the "okay" category -- not the second coming of Resident Evil, perhaps, but certainly not an unmitigated disaster either. The concept is interesting, and it's somewhat refreshing to have a protagonist who is not particularly strong or powerful, i.e., resembles an actual human being. What AMY ultimately comes off as is a somewhat promising game that needed a few more months of beta-testing. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I don't know what is most important in a game... game play or the story, sadly in this game this two things are bad. It's a big disappointment but there is no doubt that entertains you 5 hours. Expand

    No as bad as the reviews are telling. The game is average, but all in all a solid survival horror with a key focus on survival and not on action - quite interesting for a lot of people today!

    You can spend the 10 bucks better, but if you like the genre and if you want to play something outside the mainstream with interesting characters, than try it. It is really not a complete desaster

    First off to say I think ten dollars is a pretty good deal for what you get here, a game clocking in at about 5 hours which is the length of some games you pay much more for as full retails. If your a person who enjoys something different this is definitely a game to try out. The graphics for a game that is only 1.5 GB is pretty good actually, the models and textures are obviously not ableFirst off to say I think ten dollars is a pretty good deal for what you get here, a game clocking in at about 5 hours which is the length of some games you pay much more for as full retails. If your a person who enjoys something different this is definitely a game to try out. The graphics for a game that is only 1.5 GB is pretty good actually, the models and textures are obviously not able to match to multi-million dollar budget games but they aren't jagged and there some small detail in the animations that you don't see even from those high develop titles like the swaying of Lana's hood on her jacket as she runs and other such thing. The facial animation is pretty good too, again comparing it to other games won't get it anywhere but for what they can accomplish with the limitations is really good.

    The gameplay isn't anything original but what it does well it does right. There's reason for backtracking and exploring the levels and the method of getting somewhere isn't always there to hold your hand. Speaking of which, the relationship between your character, Lana, and Amy is something that really pulls this game together. Yes there have been other games where I've cared about a character but the interaction as simple as holding Amy's hand as you progress through the game has this connecting charm to it. The idea that she heals you with her very presence adds to how much the two character trust each other and how deep their relationship is. If you've ever played Dead Rising 2 and felt this way with Katie and Chuck then you'll get that faint reminder of it.

    The combat is simple and easy and timing isn't too demanding that you can get frustrated. The enemies are almost laughably easy really and you almost question why the dodge function is in there. Weapons have degradation to them so fighting isn't always the best way to go but they do allow you to sneak around and hid in places.

    The story is hit and miss along with the voice acting with it. There's some good stuff here and same with the writing sometimes. There are times though were you do hold back a giggle at what you just heard or saw but if you let those slip you may find a pretty enjoyable experience because of how the rest of the game is.

    Maybe $10 for some is too much for what this game is but then the question is was that $60 for a game that you knew would be 5-8 hours long just as fair? That's your opinion to have and judge on but if your a person that feels your losing something out of this then the issue probably is you were looking for it in this game or it just isn't something you like.

    6.0 because it runs at very low framerate for the standard of Xbox 360:with his power,360 can do much more better as framerate even with this good graphics...
    otherwise this game for me is an easy 8.0.To play ONLY with Dolby Digital when is night-time,otherwise it lose 2 points...

    This title is far from good. Its terrible. I have always played Horror games and seen many terrible games, and guess what? This is the worst game ive ever played and the worst money spent. First off, right off the bat the opening train scene is lagging. Then, animations are VERY amateur and mediocre. Also, the subtitles. Turning subtitles on is a must for some players who cant evenThis title is far from good. Its terrible. I have always played Horror games and seen many terrible games, and guess what? This is the worst game ive ever played and the worst money spent. First off, right off the bat the opening train scene is lagging. Then, animations are VERY amateur and mediocre. Also, the subtitles. Turning subtitles on is a must for some players who cant even understand what these horrible poorly done voice work is saying, however, the subtitles are not even right. Such as in subtitles, names are not spelled right, or some random name entirely. Example: "Mary, Lets call Regina". Neither of those names are even in this title. Next, Combat is broken completely. Hitting an enemy will be a 40/100% chance of working, due to faulty animations and broken configuration files. Save game points are terrible. Most chapters are about 1 hour long, and you die one time during it, YOUR STARTING THAT WHOLE CHAPTER OVER. 1 HOUR OF GAMEPLAY LOST! Some other issues is the game has HORRIBLE AI. Amy wont respond or come to you at times. Monsters sometimes just stand there like there mental. Then, here comes more! Theres a few areas in the game that have Mines. When this is bad. Because it takes alot of health away from you, and you need one of Amys powers for it, however a largely known bug causes that power to completely be removed from the power menu, making it impossible sometimes to use powers. The replay value of this title is TERRIBLE, and you dont even want to play anymore after 10 minutes of this poorly done BROKEN game. The controls are broken, clunky and very uncomfortable, so bad its unplayable for more then 1 hour before becoming disabled in your hands. The voice acting is poorly done, and is terrible. The graphics and visuals are better ON A EARLY ps2 game then this crap. So my final score? Graphics: 1/10, Sound: 3/10, Gameplay: 1/10, Replay value: 0/10. I do NOTTTTTT recommend you buy this game at all, in fact, i suggest you shoot your self in the face before you do. Like several other reviews said, $10 on your console of choice, can get you Hydrophobia, a fantastic survival horror game on a ship, you for $10 on PSN, you can get PRIMAL another fantastic horror title. So i suggest you go to your service... AND KEEP PRESSING THE FOWARD BUTTON, whatever you land on, no matter the price, im 100% sure its better then... AMY. Final notes: I WILL CONSIDER CHANGING MY SCORE IF THE DEVELOPERS FIX THE TITLE IN UPDATES. UNTIL THEN, IM GONNA WARN EVERYONE ON EVERY GAME FORUM I EVER GO TO, TO NOT BUY THIS GAME. VECTORCELL DOES NOT DESERVE THAT MONEY THEY GOT FROM PEOPLE WHO WERE SUCKERED INTO BUYING THIS GAME, AND THEY SHOULD BY LAW BE REQUIRED TO REFUND EVERYONE SINCE THIS GAME IS NOT WORKING RIGHT. SONY AND MICROSOFT, DO SOMETHING NOW! TAKE IT OFF THE STORE! Collapse

    It has a certain old school charm and a couple of really good ideas, but it's also rather ugly, repetitive and tiring. [April 2012, p.82]

    Intense, riveting, terrifying and masterful are just a few of the words we wouldn't use to describe Amy. One of the worst games on Xbox Live Arcade. [Issue#82, p.102]

    Everything good about Amy is undone by laborious puzzles and miserable controls. [March 2012, p.95]
