What lies beneath?
From the developers that brought you the terrifying Amnesia and Penumbra comes this equally haunting and nerve-wracking experience, so if you like your games scary and intense, then this is for you. It's not just about the shocks though, and SOMA crafts a compelling and intelligent tale that will have you thinking about its themes, even when you're not playing it. You're thrust into a highly claustrophobic underwater world where you must explore the nightmarish corridors of a deserted base and uncover the mystery behind what's gone on here. You'll seek out the last remaining survivors as you piece together the story but standing between you and survival are corrupted humans, twisted creatures and even a sentient AI with delusions of grandeur. You can't really fight back against your enemies, so instead of combat the game focuses on puzzles and stealth and which forces you to think intelligently about every encounter. SOMA really is a classic of the horror genre which stands alongside Resident Evil and Silent Hill. The world that has been created here is genuinely frightening, with superb visual design that thrusts you into the terror and has you on edge the entire time. The music and sound effects contribute greatly to the general atmosphere of dread, while the writing and voice acting are also top notch. There are some issues with the overall pacing of the game, as it starts of well but takes a bit of a nosedive as you progress, but apart from this minor issue, SOMA is great stuff.
