The new Amnesia game is not on par with the previous.

post #1 of 5

I know it wasn't made by the same guys, but damn. They removed interaction with most objects, gave you infinite light, removed insanity and inventory....basically all you have to do in the game is push objects, open doors and rotate valves.

They basically removed core gameplay mechanics that made the first game what it was, the game is also not as scary as the first.

Hell, even PewDiePie from YouTube made more videos of the game Outlast than Amnesia A machine for Pigs videos, simply because Outlast was more scary.

I agree, Outlast is definately giving me more scares out of the two, and I can barely make it to the next story checkpoint before alt f4'ing. Amnesia Amfp is still nice to play, there's some cool stuff to look at and a fairly interesting story, but the scare factor isn't nearly as impressive as it's first outing.

Yeah, people said that the enemies are blind when in the darkness so you can just run past them and not even a scratch.

Disappointed with this Amnesia.

If you look at one of the first trailer for this game. About 28 seconds in when the pig is busting threw the door. You can see they had insanity in the game. They should of kept it in, thought really made the first one scary. I played through the whole game and this part never happened.

Indeed. It isn't scary, and gameplay is too dumbed down. The developers didn't want to make a horror game, all they wanted to deliver was another minimalistic story experience like Dear Esther. At least the story is phenomenal, but for an Amnesia game and a horror game, it's a big letdown.
