Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs

I’ve been playing this on and off for a while now, and frankly its been a major disappointment so far. Amnesia: The Dark Descent was such a breath of fresh air when it came out a few years ago, a genuinely original game that appeared out of nowhere and scared the whilikers out of a slew of impressed gamers. Sadly, there’s nothing original or fresh about A:AMFP. So far its a by the numbers survival horror game that looks like it was made a decade ago. The muddy graphics, the lack of interaction with just about everything in the environment, the generic scary old house, creepy church and cardboard cut-out steampunk machinery, the whole blah feeling of the game, all combine to make this a major disappointment after so much was expected.  So far halfway through, but there been next to no action, just a whole lot of very uninspiring puzzle solving. The much-vaunted pigmen have yet to make an appearance, however, they’ll have to be very, very scary to salvage this game.

So far tracking for a 5, the pigmen will have to work very hard to push this to a possible 6.
