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 franchise has finally come to the console within a single Amnesia Collection. Of course, from the perspective of PC players, it doesn't bring anything new, but PS4 owners finally have the opportunity to fully assess the quality of this series.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It’s a proper little time capsule that’s perfect for those who’ve already exhausted their fear glands with Outlast and Layers of Fear and want another means to chill their blood in the run-up to Halloween.

Amnesia Collection is the perfect opportunity for PS4 owners to embrace the horror created by Frictional Games. It contains the Dark Descent, its DLC Justine and A Machine for Pigs, and they are quite identical to the PC versions.

I never played these games until they released on consoles a couple years ago but Amnesia: Collection became one of my favorite horror games once I finally did get that chance to play it. The graphics do show their age but I still feel like it’s a must play collection of horror games for anyone who hasn’t experienced it.

This collection is a nice homage to some of the most important games in history and, issues aside, there’s plenty of reasons to dive in or re-experience Amnesia all over again.
