    Anna Extended Edition improves the basic title from every point of view. The game is one of the best Horror Adventure available on the market.

    Anna: Extended Edition represents the natural maturation of Dreampainters debut title. Italian developers corrected the most bitter points of their previous work in order to create a deep and complete game, an homage at the same time to the never-dying adventure game genre and to the most deep and sick horror.

    Anna Extended Edition has brand new accessible puzzles, a larger area to explore and stronger narrative material. Its so much richer compared to the standard edition that even those who have already finished the original game will find many good reasons for a second play through.

    In this Extended Edition Dreampainters has given a more professional look to Anna. Now the Italian adventure is also less cryptic and more understandable, although many plot points are still unclear and some puzzles must be solved again with a lot of trial & error.

    The Extended Edition of Anna is a definite improvement over the original, though there’s still nothing that really jumps out for horror fans (except for the now-dangerous poltergeists).

    From the start this game had hooked me. The soundtrack has to be the best I've heard in any game, only rivaling with Journey. The light colorsFrom the start this game had hooked me. The soundtrack has to be the best I've heard in any game, only rivaling with Journey. The light colors it chose would mislead anybody into letting their guard down and immerse themselves into the world of Anna, only to find themselves thrust into a nightmare after they open the door to her house.
    I myself have not yet completed the game, I'm so close but it is a challenge, I'll give it that. However I'm far enough in to give my fair share. I realize most of the negative and mixed reviews come from PC and Mac users, and all I can say is that this game had not been made for either of those platforms. I have it for the PS3 and it works wonderfully for me. Even with the nightmarish realm you enter, the developers have added small bits of beauty, keeping you awe struck throughout your adventure. The game has beautiful twists with this eerie atmosphere, and the cut scenes being time based keep you on your feet.
    It is sadly a quite underrated game, one that I would suggest you should play for yourself on a platform it would work best with.

    Excellent point and click Horror game.
    The atmosphere in this game is powerful and has different variations in color and shadows.
    Graphics are beautiful and you get really immersed in Anna´s world.
    The narrative sets many secrets that you have to figure out with analytical methods, in order to tie the loose ends.
    Very scary in places with the supernatural moments and the intense gloom of the house.
    A lot of content (8 different endings) and some secret achievements.
    Overall, buy it if you like Point and Click Horror adventures with a clear focus in slow burning fear and not annoying jump scares.

Things never really come together and the puzzles are sloppy and poorly constructed, leading to wandering and frustration which sucks the horror out of what could have been deeply unsettling. I liked the atmosphere and uniquely creepy happenings, but eventually hit a point where I didn`t care about solving things myself anymore and just wanted to see the ending. It might scratch your itch if you`re running out of horror games to play, but it could have been much, much better. I can recommend this loosely for scaring me a few times, but overall can`t suggest it for anyone but the most hardcore horror lovers. Expand

    I wanted to like Anna, and to a degree I do, but I feel that it tried too hard to be something big.

    While I did enjoy some of the puzzles, the story, and the atmosphere, the controls and gameplay were creative, but distracting in some areas. Did the game scare me? Sorta. Spooked here and there and having the wood lady suddenly appear next to me did make me jump (not to mention having a few nightmares about her following me). There are some scenes in the game that I feel are just so forced. It tries too hard to be scary to a point it's almost laughable and the gimmicks get old. Some points are just plain annoying. Any fear I had just turned is to annoyance and anxiety of having to waddle through several rooms because I missed something and I have to avoid damage.

    It had potential and it hit some decent marks, but overall it was an experience I could live without.

    Do *not* purchase this game for a Mac!

    Anna: EE is a beautifully made game, but despite being advertised to work on Mac computers it does *not*! No inputs are responsive except for the mouse in the menu, and "w, a, s, d". Since you need to use other keys to play, you can't even get past the first screen.

    From July 1st to August 15th the game has been 100% unplayable from this bug. Kalypso released a patch on August 15th which fixed it, but on August 20th (literally a handful of days later) the bug is back and the game cannot be played. Hundreds of people on Steam have been providing input about this bug, and Kalpyso has commented just once, and provided one patch in over 50 days.
