    The definitive collection of the Amnesia games all in one package. They remain as terrifying today as they were when originally released. Mixing some puzzles with a narrative exploration game, this isn't a game full of action. However, the atmosphere is oppressive and unnerving which is exactly what we want from a horror game.

    This collection gives you an authentic horror experience: tense moments, a feeling of helplessness, and an environment you can’t help but exist in, even though you wish you were anywhere else.

    The Amnesia Collection is, in some ways, a difficult one to recommend. Existing fans gain little new from it, and newcomers will possibly be seeing this as dated thanks to the many attempted copycats that have released in an around the time since this series began. Yet it’s a timely reminder of how well a slow-burning eldritch horror can be done in videogames. If you are a fan of Lovecraftian horror and you haven’t touched the Amnesia series, then I implore you to venture down into its depths.

    Amnesia: The Collection proves why it’s one of the most imitated horror games of all time: it’s also one of the best. While there’s not a lot of new content for any returning players, if you haven’t played Amnesia, now’s the perfect time to change that.

    Amnesia: Collection does exactly what it set out to do: it presents three terrifying, fun, and intriguing genre-defining horror games in one uncomplicated package. It doesn’t offer any new content or significant visual upgrades from the original releases, and there are a few hiccups here and there, but it is still an unforgettable experience nonetheless. For any fan of first-person survival horror games, Amnesia: Collection is not something to be overlooked.

    A mixed bag. The Dark Descent's puzzles can be frustrating but overall, it's an excellent and engrossing horror experience. Justine is very short and rather throwaway while A Machine for Pigs is a big step down in quality from the original.
  7. 60
    The Amnesia Collection fails to revamp the original visuals and lacks the bonus content to entice existing fans. But for newcomers, this three-course dish of blood, guts and horror quickens the pulse like few other games can.

    I enjoy getting in this universe once again and cant wait for Amnesia Rebirth, which i hope its gonna be a great return.

    Excluding the minor mechanic-like controls, its overall a really good experience for beign a PC to Console port.

    Legendary classic that highly influenced survival horror. One of my all time favorites. Old school but worth it.

It focuses more on narrative than on action, and I like that very much. The settings are quite dark, but the story is thoughtful and even philosophical at times; 1899 is a key year and that is quite well fictionalized in the game. It does not need more action, because it is a different type of experience. If it were for A Machine for pigs, I would give Amnesia a 9.

    Nevertheless, Dark Descent and Justine hold the collection back. Justine is simply what it is: a very brief experience mostly focused on action (and quite frustrating because of the system of deaths). I do not really like it, though I admit that it has some good moments (the ending is quite nice), especially if you achieve to master gameplay.

    And Dark Descent was a bit disappointing for me. The story is no match whatsoever for that of A Machine for Pigs, and gameplay is sometimes too confusing and not enjoyable. Of course it has good moments too, but i would not give Dark Descent (nor obviously Justine) more than a 7.

    Overall, Amnesia Collection is a solid 8 and an advisable experience if you like horror games. A Machine for Pigs is an unappreciated jewel.

    These games are clearly not as scary as the games they inspired like Outlast or SOMA,
    So while this may not be a must play to sh** bircks.. I still feel this is a must play collection for adventure fans, or someone that wants the history lesson of the series that took survival horror to the height that is today
