Ultimately the Amnesia Collection feels caught between essential and outdated

The Amnesia Collection fails to revamp the original visuals and lacks the bonus content to entice existing fans. But for newcomers, this three-course dish of blood, guts and horror quickens the pulse like few other games can.

Despite the performance problems and the fact that there has been hardly any improvement over the original versions in the graphics section, Amnesia Collection is a good horror game. It will take us a long time to complete them, but they are an experience worth experiencing, especially The Dark Descent.

Overall the gameplay is enjoyable and as frightening as always, although the visuals are starting to become a bit dated. With Justine being much shorter then the others I feel the asking price for the Amnesia Collection is a bit too high. The first and third game are really enjoyable and if the collection goes on sale I would definitely recommend picking it up then.

Overall, I was extremely pleased and delighted to replay one of my favorite horror games and also experience for the first time the sequel and standalone called Justine. The mix of scary atmospheres and ear-tickling sounds play a great part in what makes a horror game.

Amnesia Collection is $30 and comes with two great survival horror games and one mediocre, short walking simulator. This is a pretty great compilation if only because The Dark Descent is one of the scariest games around these days, and is probably worth it alone for the asking price. A Machine for Pigs may be pretty horrible and disappointing, but come for The Dark Descent and bring a change of clean trousers.

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.

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.

Amnesia is a frightening series that is probably the best of its genre. It doesn't look good, but with sound and darkness it achieves a peak horror effect.

Amnesia Collection retails for $29.99 USD on both the PC and PS4. If you own Dark Descent on PC, I would suggest skipping the collection and just buying Machine if you’re curious enough. But if you’re someone who’s never tried the series (especially if you own a PS4 but don’t have a PC strong enough to handle the original game) I highly recommend picking up the compilation. Sometimes it’s worth it to go out and seek out those scares that will stay with you a long, long time.

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.

Amnesia: The Collection offers up a good 15+ hours of tense exploration, puzzling, and scares that survival-horror fans should enjoy. With a strong focus on the narrative and mostly linear progression, you're unlikely to play through them more than once, but it's still great value for money.

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.

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.

Overall, Amnesia Collection is a great option on PlayStation 4 since it includes more than enough content for its asking price, and it will surely delight fans of the horror genre. If you want to see how the team refined their craft on their way to creating SOMA, then be sure to give this collection a go!

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.

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.
