    Despite being a set that includes three entries in the same series, the Amnesia: Collection actually offers three very distinct experiences. The Dark Descent is a milestone for the genre that belies its own mechanical issues by offering some good, old-fashioned scares. Justine is a brief but experimental foray into gruesome puzzle-solving that’s well worth the detour, and A Machine for Pigs takes a more stripped-down approach to the original’s systems, but introduces a much more immersive story as a result. It’s a proper little time capsule that’s perfect for those who’ve already exhausted their fear glands with Outlast and Layers of Fear and want another means to chill their blood in the run-up to Halloween.

    It’s a shame it isn’t a full remake, but The Dark Descent remains one of the most frightening and atmospheric video games ever made.

    Amnesia: Collection is a faithful port of the classic horror franchise. Despite the aged graphics, the gameplay and scares hold up incredibly well, even in handheld mode. While I don’t ever expect to be playing it this way (in order to prevent a situation like that in the trailer), having the ability to more easily take Amnesia on the go is always a good thing in my book. If you’ve never experienced Amnesia before, there’s never been a better time to dive into it than now!

    Amnesia: Collection consists of three of the most remarkable horror games that the industry has seen. While each game in this collection should be seen on its own, this is a very welcome addition to the Nintendo Switch catalogue and even if the first game has some performance issues, fans of horror adventures and anyone looking for a seriously chilling experience will have an unforgettable time with Amnesia: Collection.

    Amnesia Collection on Switch may lack the slick polish and fidelity of the PlayStation 4, but at the very least, The Dark Descent survived mostly intact, and is still an excellent version of the scariest game ever made. It is too bad that the other entries in the collection are not quite up to the Frictional Games' standard of quality, but even in their own merits they are decent compared to most other first-person horror titles on Switch. A Machine For Pigs, being the least restraint and absurd, makes it hard to take it seriously, but does have some qualities that make it an amusing guilty pleasure. At the very least it never bores.

    The Amnesia games are some of the best horror titles to ever be released, but things have moved on and its dated graphics, lack of polish and some performance issues hinder the Nintendo Switch release. Ultimately, however, if you are a fan of horror games, the package is worth it alone just to play The Dark Descent, one of the most influential games of the past ten years. Just be aware that, as the darkness in these games, time has not been its friend.

    Amnesia is a horror classic that has lost a little of its bite over the years, but can still provide some genuine scares. Performance issues do bring this version down, but the games are still worth experiencing for new players.

The dark atmosphere, the sound is amazing and for what i understand is a game from 2010 it does look quite good. I am really getting a feeling of dread when playing. Plus three games for around 25 bucks is not bad! Expand

Ambiance is perfect for scares and tension. I love horror and suspense and I’ve got chills a couple of times. The only thing is that it doesn’t hints or gives you a little guidance and sometimes is jarring to know what to do specially when your being followed by shadowy figures. Expand
