Amnesia: The Collection
Top Critic Average
It’s a shame it isn’t a full remake, but The Dark Descent remains one of the most frightening and atmospheric video games ever made.
A great option if you did not have the chance to try both games in PC several years ago. Very recommended if you are a horror and Lovecraft fan.

This collection gives you an authentic horror experience: tense moments, a feeling of helplessness, and an environment you can’t help but exist in, even though you wish you were anywhere else.
Amnesia: The Collection proves why it’s one of the most imitated horror games of all time: it’s also one of the best. While there’s not a lot of new content for any returning players, if you haven’t played Amnesia, now’s the perfect time to change that.
Amnesia: Collection groups one exceptional must-play horror game with two good ones in a trilogy that is well worth the time of any horror fan.
I’ve heard the chorus of “scariest game of all time,” I’ve seen the countless accolades, and I came into the games wanting to like them, wanting them to terrify me.
Even for veterans of the franchise, this isn’t a bad way to relive the experience all over again and gain trophies in the process. It’s a given that a ton of players have already experienced what the majority of this package contains but for those that missed out on the sequel, or perhaps somehow the entire package, Amnesia the collection is highly recommended for PS4.
The Amnesia Collection is, in some ways, a difficult one to recommend. Existing fans gain little new from it, and newcomers will possibly be seeing this as dated thanks to the many attempted copycats that have released in an around the time since this series began. Yet it’s a timely reminder of how well a slow-burning eldritch horror can be done in videogames. If you are a fan of Lovecraftian horror and you haven’t touched the Amnesia series, then I implore you to venture down into its depths.
The Amnesia series is one of the best horror franchises the medium has ever known. And the fact that the entirety of the series is now available on the PS4 is a win. The hide and seek gameplay holds up well, and while more could have been done with the visual presentation, the sound design is top-tier.
Amnesia: Collection brings three landmark horror games to the Nintendo Switch, allowing fans of horror games to live some terrifying experiences in a very convenient format. The first chapter of the series shows some performance issues but that doesn't stand in the way of this collection being a remarkable effort to deliver a chilling, hair-raising time.
