    Rather hide in a closet when you see Amy – good ideas alone don't cut it.

    Its novel setup could've made Amy an exciting, emotionally charged adventure. Instead, it's a grueling death-march through a gauntlet of poor design choices and feckless player punishment.

    Amy is bad, sloppy, and seems as if it was released in an unfinished state. Make no mistake: It's not good-bad. It doesn't have the loveable cult vibe of a game like Deadly Premonition, a goofy-fun gaming experience with similar last-gen graphics and terrible voice acting. Amy is alternatively throw-your-controller frustrating and deadly dull.

    There is nothing that could get me to come back to this atrocity, nor a price tag that I might deem it worth checking out for. Amy is definitely scary, but not in the way it intends to be.

    Worst of all for a game hoping to sell itself on scares, Amy is never frightening. Instead, its horrors are derived from the game's shoddy execution, weak puzzles and frustrating play rhythms, a nest of poor game design decisions through which disappointment, not fear, are hatched.

    Amy purports itself to be survival horror, but the only surviving you'll be doing is trying to make sense of the muddled gameplay mess laid before you as you're "scared" by the same gimmicky frights, like bursting gas pipes and falling portraits, over and over again.

    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.

    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 ofFirst 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.

    A disgusting piece of crap. I wasted 10 dollars on this. I was literally rooting for this game when others dismissed it. One thing I hate moreA disgusting piece of crap. I wasted 10 dollars on this. I was literally rooting for this game when others dismissed it. One thing I hate more then this game's missed opportunities, is myself for buying it. The ONLY reason this monstrosity gets a 2 is because I enjoyed Lana's death animation. SMACK GROUND DEAD. One helpful tip for those who consider buying this game. Download the trial. Then immediately delete it of your hard drive forever. BEHOLD THE AMY EXPERIENCE! Expand

The issues can even beThis is game sounded good in previews, trailers and the original info for it, but this game is a complete disaster. The issues can even be seen in the opening scene where the voices are very bad, the character animations are amature and the scene lags. Second problems are in game, the checkpoint system is very bad and it is not fair at all. You die, your doing about 2 hours worth of gameplay... AGAIN. I would recommend burning your game system instead, at least its better then this horrible game burning your eyes out. I mean, i will rate this better IF they fix the issues with this crap title. Do a full update like what happened to Hydrophobia... Then maybe... Totally wasted 9.99. Im sorry wallet. Expand
