Amnesia: The Dark Decent Demo

Hey it's Thomas again, aka Hoot, and I got a chance to play the Amnesia: The Dark Decent Demo and this is what I thought.

The first thing that comes to mind after playing the demo is the length of it, for a demo it is extremely short. With that being said, it was scary as all hell. Or it was just so scared that time seemed to be going by extremely fast. For those who don't know what Amnesia is: a first person survival horror. The game really focuses on immersion, discovery and living through a nightmare. If you are a bit confused, just imagine playing hide and go seek from raging blood soaked zombies, while trying to keep your sanity. That is the closest thing I can relate this game too. Now to the actual review of the demo.

Starting off, I've never seen a game like it, so bonus points there. It's under the category of first person survival horror and I would have to say it excels there too. Even if there isn't a monster around the corner or chasing you down a hallway, the game gets to you. Just sitting in the dark in the game freaks you out. Something I found interesting in the game is the status kept on your brain. You can start loosing you mind if you stay in the dark to long or stare at monsters for long periods of time. To counter the affects the player has to stay in light when he can to keep his character from cutting this own head off. There isn't a whole lot to the game really, just a basic objective.Survive.Only trick to it is, that it's easier said then done.

Over all I give the demo a 9.5.
