Exclamation second chapter of amnesia: horror game of the year or not ?

hi, reading between the various FAQs and news from this page:
http://www.frictionalgames.com/forum/thread-21294.html

there are news that it left me open-mouthed, I want to distinguish them into two categories.

terrible news
1) No Custom Story
2) Requirements high enough
3) No Demo (However pewdiepie have it, I wonder why ..)
4) Gameplay along only 5 or 6 hours
5) Most likely there will be no add-ons or DLC (type justine)
6) No fighting
7) No commentary icon
8) No tinderboxes and oil refills

good news
1) Outdoor environments
2) New Charapter yeee
3) Friends NPC

I understand that this is a new chapter and the programmer wanted to change the gameplay of the game because I think the choices are wrong;
for example, the custom story: without them, once the storyline will be completed the game will be forgotten, while in the very first chapter of CS have lengthened considerably the life of this game making it famous as it is today.

The absence of a demo (hem pewdie ..) will prevent MANY users to test if your computer will be able to start the game.

The Monsters in this chapter can not be touched or dealt with, so we will still run like crazy waiting for it to go away ... uff

to finish will not be present tinderbox and oil refills .. I'm at the point I wonder ... What will we do? environments are already enlightened? o.O more in our lantern will be endless .....? I really do not understand ....

I apologize for being so long, but I wanted to express my sadness with you, now you comments, what do you think of this game and its shortcomings?

Imo the only bad thing in your list of 'terrible news' is 7) no commentary.

The game can still possibly run with lower spec machines, but not as smoothly as hoped.

I don't understand this either. If they modify the engine in a way that changes how well the game runs, give us a demo so we won't be wasting money on stuff we can't run.

Make a horror game too long and you risk the player figuring out the AI and gameplay mechanics, thus diminishing the experience.

Hasn't been in since Overture and I'm glad for that. If you know it can be killed, it's not as scary.

They became a Too Awesome to Use item for me and I had loads of oil and tinderboxes by the end. If anything, I'm excited to see how they will handle the light/dark mechanics in AAMFP.

"No fighting" is one of my favorite things in the game!

I don't mind running and hiding. It's just like a H. P. Lovecraft story.

Perhaps once you've played the game, you'll actually be able to call it horror game of the year or not.

I'm pretty picky ... for a game that has been expected for 2-3 years I would have hoped for something more ..
