Doorways bills itself as a rival to Amnesia, which is a problem since it did little to distinguish itself from the Amnesia franchise. It’s still scary and tense and is a good game on its own, but if you have played Amnesia you won’t get anything new out of Doorways and vice versa. Doorways gets horror right, partially due to Amnesia laying down the groundwork. The atmosphere is dark and foreboding, the monsters are terrifying, but it never escapes Amnesia’s shadow, because it doesn’t do much to try to escape it; this is not helped by the fact that a voice actor from Amnesia was hired to be in this game, essentially putting up a giant neon sign saying “We are like Amnesia! Pay attention to us!” It helps make it a good game, but it prevents it from standing out amongst the crowd of other first person horror games inspired by Amnesia. Doorways is a decent if not good game, it just tries to be Amnesia and actually succeeds somewhat, which is both its greatest success and most glaring flaw.
