+ Some of the pointless gameplay elements that existed in the first game have been removed (the sanity system for one, as well as the constant need to refill your lantern), leading to a more fluid experience
+ Again, story-wise the game manages to tell a story well, and has quite a sombre ending
+ Similar to the first game also, the sound design is excellent, and ensures a quiet moment is never peaceful for long.
- While the first game’s length was nothing exceptional (just under 4 hours), this game is criminally short in comparison, barely passing the 2 ½ hour mark
- Just like the first game, but worse-so, there are only a couple of moments where you are in any real danger; aside from the occasional set piece, dying is nigh impossible.
“A game that tries to emulate the success of the previous iteration, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs
doesn’t quite hit the mark. Although the story once again is excellent and is worth the price of admission, the format of a videogame just does not suit this franchise. But, having said that, if you can get this game for cheap and have a couple hours to spare, a quick playthrough of this title just for the short story won’t go amiss.”
