SOMA is a recent sci-fi horror game by Frictional Games, whom you might know as the geniuses behind the terribly spooky Amnesia: The Dark Descent and its sequel, A Machine for Pigs. At first, I had heard that SOMA wasn’t scary and was more of a “creepy” atmospheric game, but I can confirm after completing it that this is not at all true!
After finishing the game over the weekend, here’s my SOMA review including some details about what the game’s about, initial thoughts, what it does well and what could be improved. As well as a final note on whether you should play it! (Hint: You probably should!)
