Top Critic Average
Frictional returns with a subversion of horror tropes, though it's not quite the measure of other games in the series.
A brilliant tale of terror, even if the ride is a little old and clunky.
Amnesia: Rebirth is one of the most thrilling survival horror games in recent memory – one that is anything but forgettable.
A dark and twisted piece of playable horror fiction that delivers a memorable story.
A disappointing sequel to The Dark Descent, but while the horror elements can seem mundane at times the storytelling and characterisation remain impressive.
If you're looking for a good scare, Amnesia: Rebirth delivers, but prepare to feel lost and confused along the way
The follow-up to Frictional Games' seminal 2010 horror game tightly hones the developer's approach to story, frights, and frustration.
Amnesia: Rebirth shows an inventiveness that The Dark Descent only hinted at. And it’s certainly creepy enough to satisfy the hunger for something spooky this season.
Making a sequel to one of the most acclaimed horror games in recent memory may be a tall order for some, but Frictional Games has done it with aplomb with Amnesia: Rebirth. Without straying far from the formula that made Amnesia: The Dark Descent so popular and feared in equal measure-the clever use of jump scares, immersive puzzles and the light-dark dichotomy-Rebirth has reinvigorated its brand of horror with a haunting narrative that's as moving as it is refreshing. Rebirth may still be a bit too much to bear for players who don't usually venture into horror, but it's a sequel that should please ardent fans and horror masochists alike.
