Editor's Pick - Amnesia: Dark Descent
Posted on Monday, January 3 @ 14:22:22 PST by geoff_hunt[An Editor's Pick is a game chosen by a Game Revolution writer that, for some blasphemous reason, did not win a GR Award. For those games that don't even get a Editor's Pick, well, we're just mean like that. ~Ed.]
Creepy, immersing, and surprisingly frightening at times. Amnesia's the rare horror game that uses atmosphere and psychological manipulation. Every flickering shadow, every distant noise, and every ragged breath keep goosebumps on the skin, while panicked flights through stony corridors from half-seen monstrosities keeps the adrenaline pumping. For a game without constant action, it's amazingly engaging, and an example of how far the genre has come.
