    A brilliant tale of terror, even if the ride is a little old and clunky.

    Amnesia: Rebirth is definitely both better and worse than SOMA. In an attempt to blend the best of Amnesia: The Dark Descent and SOMA something went inevitably missing, nevertheless Frictional Games is back with one of the greatest survival horror games in so many aspects.

    Amnesia: Rebirth is an excellent example of how to build tension, and the vulnerability Tasi feels throughout never gets any easier. There are great puzzles and a well-written story that keeps you gripped until the end.

    Amnesia: Rebirth feels like the culmination of Frictional Games horror titles up to this point. It refines the ideas and mechanics that have been central to the developer's games since Penumbra: Overture in 2007, it hones in on effective scares while avoiding the frustrations of failure, and it tightens the focus on character-driven storytelling. Rebirth is an unsettling, strange, tragic story that deepens the Amnesia mythos in a lot of cool ways, while managing to be just as creepy and frightening as its beloved predecessor.

    A game that doesn't do anything new but still manages to perfects the original formula of this Swedish studio. An intense horror game that fans of the genre should not miss.

    With Amnesia: Rebirth, Frictional's philosophy really returns. There is that talent for subtle and psychological horror, which relies on physical and explicit threats just to keep working.

    With a tighter script and more polish, this could've been a fantastic game that paralleled the trauma of child loss to the evil enterprise of colonial expansion. Instead, it's one that insincerely mines trauma from a colonizer's perspective... then asks you to do a half-hearted physics puzzle.

    Great to see that Frictional still has it in them to make a game which lives up to the first one. The improvements taken from SOMA are evidentGreat to see that Frictional still has it in them to make a game which lives up to the first one. The improvements taken from SOMA are evident and the immersion is better than in any of their games. FG's choice of a female protagonist works very well with the story, and in fact adds the much needed emotional element which I thought was lacking in Amnesia The Dark Descent. The voice acting by Alix Wilton Regan is top notch and I can't emphasize this enough because to replace a silent protagonist from the first game with a speaking one is a risky move and Alix nails the part. I recommend that all survival horror fans give this one a go. Show your support for Frictional Games; they deserve every bit of it. Expand

    Frictional Games are masters at telling innately human stories through the use of horror and environmental exploration, Amnesia: Rebirth is noFrictional Games are masters at telling innately human stories through the use of horror and environmental exploration, Amnesia: Rebirth is no exception. While not exactly reaching the "scary" heights of the first (although this could be to me having getting accustomed to horror games since then) the story is much more fleshed out and faces deeper themes and the first. There are frustrating elements, some design is still very akin to the 2010 original, ehich is both good and bad. The light source mechanics can be frustrating, but it helps with the atmosphere to a certain degree. Monster design felt a bit generic, yet still terrifying with how it was dealt with. The game is another hit. Expand

    Great story, immersion, and puzzles.

    Amnesia Rebirth is a game worth playing that makes you feel immersed in a story carefully written full of wiredness and with a main character that feels real and makes you feel compassion for her. You experience the danger and the uncertainty that you encounter at every step taken.

    Amnesia Rebirth is an experience more than a game, the gameplay isn't hard, to have the most out of it you must let you immersed in the story and put you in the shoes of the character.

    What makes this game great is Tasi, the main character that has an identity and talks frequently and puts your perspective of the world in a subjective view from the eyes and mind of the Tasi.

    The graphics and performance are great, I had not encountered any bug during my playthrough, everything works well and do not ruin the immersion.

    In conclusion, is a game worth playing. Not touching the greatness of SOMA on the story side, but delivers a good experience.

    Unlike their sensational previous game, SOMA, this is a study in missed opportunities. It takes a novel and interesting concept and goesUnlike their sensational previous game, SOMA, this is a study in missed opportunities. It takes a novel and interesting concept and goes nowhere with it.
    The gameplay is dated, the scary monsters chasing you are not enough to make a scary game in 2020.
    The story goes nowhere - all buildup and no payoff, once again unlike SOMA, which delivers existential gut punch after gut punch.

    I wonder where all the lessons they learned went? It's a step back, not forwards, both in narrative and in horror. Not a bad game by any means, but quite disappointing, considering their track record. If anything, it's worse than the original Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Good graphics, but the plot made it unbearable to play... Crappy story that involves a woman and aliens from another dimension.. A child that died and even though she talked about it all game we don't get to know what the problem was and stupid jump scares without reason (for example if u stayed at darkness too much)
    Also you didn't die at all (I died once in the whole in the whole gam) and it was not scary at all...you were just getting chased constantly by some bad looking monsters... The first amnesia made me froze out of fear but the last two was a disaster..no more amnesia for me..this one just settled..
