The evasive, non-combat focused gameplay of Amnesia collides with an unnerving and fascinating underwater sci-fi tale. Playing cat-and-mouse with monsters feels formulaic at this point, but Soma’s engrossing subsea environment and intriguing narrative keep the entire experience afloat.

All the stumbling around trades away any sense of suspense. It's hard to feel scared of monsters after you've walked circles around them several times. Not even tricks like suddenly switching off the lights saves the mood. Soma does a great job of making me feel lost and frustrated. Perhaps too good.

It's in that clarity, more than anything, that SOMA feels most distinct from Amnesia. The latter game embraced a sense of vagueness to modify its dread, even going so far as to make not looking at its monsters a key part of the gameplay. SOMA copies that at first, but within a few hours it's given you most of the answers. I don't know if SOMA will scare people as much as Amnesia did, but it is without a doubt a stronger game, with better pacing, smarter writing and more powerful subject matter.
