AMY has a reasonably decent premise and a really creepy opening sequence, but this just isn't a finished game. It's the kind of game that makes me wonder if the people who designed it were actually gamers themselves, and if so, if they don't enjoy fun for some reason. I really want to say nicer things about AMY than this, because survival horror badly needs a good shot in the arm from some upstart independent developer, but this is one of the worst games in the genre.
Amy isn't a great Blockbuster... So what ? It deserves to be ridiculised like this? This is stupid.
Amy surely deserves a 6 or a seven, at least cause it tries something different from the mainstream audience. I give a 10 just for balancing the incredibly syupid bad notations. Giving Amy a 2 or 3 is arguiying that the game is worst by far from Chopplifter HD that is a real bad game. So wake up guys!!!
Aroma old schoo total , survival horror. La gente no tiene ni idea, ven que tiene algun fallo brusco en el motoro y se olvidan lo que ofrece realmente este juego.
Es lo mas cercano a un SIlent Hill, es grandioso, ambientacion de autentico lujo.
Crea una atmofera de 10.
It's almost unfair to review Amy, given the state it's in. On the other hand, it's sort of unfair that it was published at all. The thought of anyone spending money on Amy -- possibly drawn in by the promising trailers -- only to wind up with this mess, is quite honestly a little enraging. There might have been a decent story here once, or even good survival horror, but it's gone now.
Just a couple of button presses away from Amy on both the Xbox and PlayStation marketplaces is a little game called Resident Evil 4 that does this idea brilliantly with a girl named Ashley instead of Amy. Sure, it costs twice as much but you'll be buying and playing one of the best games ever made-not one of the worst.
This is another futile crusade. A little stupid and fiercely honest. Amy will also be a mediocre game. But definitely not a game 2. Why this stubbornness? It costs $ 9, you can use the easy mode. And I think it's smart not to be against a game that has decent ideas. Poor? Okay. 1 or 2? Ridiculous.
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 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.
In the end the only question which must be answered is how the publishers allowed such a shoddy, poorly designed title to sail out under their banner. This game is stagnant, repulsive and broken. The very small positives must be searched for, and the many flaws are far too apparent. An exemplary lesson in how not to develop a videogame.
A nice history, spoiled with a bad execution: the graphics are a mixed bag, very nice in the characters, very poor in the enemies and scenarios, and with a lot of darkness to hide things. The voices and musics are well done, but the worst part of the game resides in some aspects of the gameplay: robotic movement, and one of the worst combat systems I ever saw. But it have some nicefeatures too, like the puzzles and the use of Amy as your partner to solve them, and as a "radar" to enemies (like the radio in Silent Hill). I had too many expectations from this one, but I'm truly disappointed with the final game... it's a wast of MS Points in the end. My score: 3,2 / 10,0 .
