“To Hell With Johnny” doesn’t exactly bring anything new to the platform genre, but the peculiarly addictive element of the “drop and dash” style gameplay along with the necessary element of timing in order to solve puzzles and out-smart enemies makes it a worthwhile way to pass the time. (more…)

Game Review by Destiny Song
Game Rating = 4/5
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is, simply put, perhaps the scariest game of all time; a carefully crafted environment, a scary soundtrack, and a gameplay infused with horror elements such as chasing monsters and loss of sanity, coupled with puzzles to whittle away precious time allows for a truly intense horror experience. Action gamers and the faint-of-heart might want to look elsewhere.
Three Reasons to buy the game
#1 Immersive gameplay; interactive puzzles, tough choices and the pervading fear of the constantly chasing monsters means the tension is kept up at all times
# 2 Perhaps the scariest atmosphere ever produced; the horror setting is carefully crafted, down to the minute details such as screeching and scraping in the background soundtrack
# 3 Strong horror elements; the game ensures the gamer will never know what’s around the corner, be it merely another puzzle, or a lurking monster.
Three Reasons to avoid buying the game
#1 Gameplay limited to puzzles, traveling choices and narration; action gamers will be sorely disappointed
# 2 Puzzles and even traveling could prove too much of a challenge; the player might get frustrated with dying often, and often not knowing the reason
# 3 Not for the young or faint of heart; gory and horror elements are strongly involved
Full Game Review
Horror enthusiasts and puzzle masters rejoice; there hasn’t been an environment as scary or as hard to navigate as the dark castle crafted by Frictional Games in Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Waking up as Daniel, an amnesiac (as the title implies), in a dark, scary castle, with a mysterious creature hunting you at every turn, the task falls upon you to discover more about your past, and that of the castle you find yourself in; a story that is immersive and haunting as more is revealed.
The horror elements set into the games are strong; monsters hunt you constantly, ending your trek abruptly if you ever find the misfortune of being slow enough to be caught. Other than the carefully crafted gore in the prevalent setting, including blood and the ever-prominent skeleton, the lighting system itself adds to the ever-present tension in the atmosphere and presents a tough gameplay choice as well; although Daniel can see as well in the dark as he can in light, there are inherent dangers in either choice.
Daniel possesses a tinderbox he can light torches and other lighting devices with; but the visibility of light, although providing relief, attracts various monsters. Stay in the dark, however, and Daniel slowly loses his sanity; haunting images start appearing on the screen, and the overall effect, especially when coupled with his surroundings, is unsettling to say the least.
Puzzles provide relief from the horror, but comes with inherent dangers as well; slow down enough or fail a few puzzles, and the monsters slowly catch up to you, ending your brief trek of exploration.
If you’re a horror enthusiast seeking the most horrifying, terrifying, and immersive environment possible, then Amnesia: The Dark Descent is your game. Definitely not for cowards, the faint of heart, or people with heart conditions. You’ve been warned.
