I have enjoyed the pacing so far and everything bout it but there are a couple minor things that keep me from giving the game a 10. First the story I guess you can say is intriguing but feels kinda dull or lacking so to speak, the characters are alright but don't expect a masterpiece of storytelling. Also while the controls work great and the balances ammo system that keeps you from blasting through everything is well implemented in my opinion there are a few parts I feel that seem cheap and unfair. For example, there is one part where you have to press one of two buttons, one advances you through the puzzle the other is an instant death, I have run into few spots like that but they are kinda annoying. The controls are great except sometimes if I am facing a hoard the response to buttons feel late and you get a cheap hit from the enemy it's rare but it gets annoying when it happens. Oh and as far as enemy design just look at Shinji's past work and if you like it then you will love the designs in the evil within. Also, I'm not one to harp on graphics but I have to admit that they can look a bit dated and there are some muddy textures, they don't really bother me considering it was a 4-year development and all but I think I have to mention that. To be honest I think this game is great and I am glad I followed my gut and bought it. I can't say I like it more than the older residents or RE4 but I do feel it is better than RE5 or 6. As for whether people should get this or alien isolation I can't really say cause I haven't played Alien Isolation yet. The only other thing I can say is that this game is difficult but not like a dark souls level. You just have to be patient and aware of your surroundings and whatever you do, DO NOT go in guns blazing.
Shinji Mikami returns in glory with his new baby The Evil Within, which has potential to rock the world of horror-themed games which is now stagnating, and especially Mikami's first child RESIDENT EVIL series. The game is difficult and frightening, there are no jump scare or anything that can scare us directly, but still the game has a climate that keeps us constantly tense. It offers interesting, elaborate storyline. Good game to try if you want to feel unease.
This game was promised and hyped as great return of classic Resident Evil survival horror, but sadly it's far from it. Engine problems and horrible optimisation aside, this game is incredibly heartbreaking, because there are some good ideas in it, completely killed by questionable decisions. First of all, it is yet another Benny Hill game like Amnesia or Outlast, where you run and hide from enemies. It wouldn't be so bad, but it's incredibly buggy and enemy can sometimes see you through the wall. Shooting is incredibly awkward and ammo is even more sparse than in any Resident Evil game, making shooting actually pointless. Also, there are worst kind of QTE, which require incredible reflex. There is good game underneath it, because there is nice atmosphere, great soundtrack and voice-acting, but it's killed by shallow gameplay and stiff controls, on top of really bad optimisation. Nice game to try, but not for full price.
I have been wanting to play this game since it came out, but couldn't due to having a crappy laptop, and the game is not well optimized at all. Anyway, I got a new PC, and played this game. I loved it and all of the DLCs. The concepts were amazing, the art stunning, the environments breathtakingly haunting at times, and the music a treat for the ears. The main character is a bit forgettable, but it doesn't make a big difference in the long run. At some points, the game was almost too easy, and at others it provided a nice challenge, so I'd say it was a good balance. The story was a bit confusing and difficult to follow, but I feel that it added to the mysterious atmosphere. It's a fun game for achievement hunting, especially with the extra game mode (New game+). I wholeheartedly recommend this game and all of its' DLC to horror/action game fans. Though not without its' issues, it is a masterpiece and I feel a staple in the horror genre. Second game? Pretty pleeeaaase?
Es sangriento, es misterioso y la trama no coincide con la calidad de Silent Hill. en absoluto en mi opini?n. Los gr?ficos son buenos, el sonido es bueno tambi?n. Hay poca o ninguna m?sica en el juego.
