Nice idea killed by execution

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.

Awesome game, much better than the latest Resident Evils...

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?

Mucho realismo

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.

Great survival horror game

Quite possibly my favorite survival horror game ever. Sure it's buggy in some places and the story has some weird moments, but it overall holds together really well. It's not Resident Evil, despite the creator of Resident Evil spearheading the production. This is something I wish more people would realize, instead of criticizing it for how non-Resident Evil it is. The graphics in The Evil Within are among some of the strongest I've ever seen. The whole game is dripping in atmosphere and I felt completely immersed. It's also incredibly violent. They really captured the essence of horror and anyone who thinks otherwise clearly hasn't seen enough old-school scary movies. It's also quite a long game. Took me 12 hours to beat the main story and there's New Game+ and a couple other interesting modes to complete. There's definitely a lot of replay value to unlock all of the hidden secrets/collectibles. I'd definitely recommend getting The Evil Within if you're a fan of horror in general. It's a challenging game, but very easy to become immersed in. Most importantly, it's fun and quite creepy. Definitely worth playing.

Scared of the lack of ideas

I'm so disappointed I don't know where to start from. I'm one of those who is tired of those action packed Resident Evil games we've been playing since RE 4. Silent Hill, one of my favorite series ever, is almost dead. Dead Space brought a breath of fresh air to the survival horror genre, but it only lasted one game. We were really missing a real survival horror game, and The Evil Within looked like it. It is not. The Evil Within looks more like what Resident Evil 6 should have been. I would really liked that "shift" in the series, but that is not what I was expecting from a new IP supposed to bring back the old days of survival horror games. The Evil Within is like a tribute to many games, including Resident Evil, Silent Hill and some other games, but the fact is that, in some years, we won't be playing any game and saying "hey, this looks like The Evil Within". It just doesn't add anything worth it to the genre. So, this is not the game that I've been expecting, but it is not even a game fun to be played. I'm not talking about how difficult it is and how frustrating it gets from time to time, I'm talking about how bad gameplay is, how inaccurate our character is with his movements, how bad the stealth parts are implemented -way more polished in the DLC- and how annoying the camera is -a problem we've been facing a long time ago-. I like survival horrors so much I won't say this is a bad game, as I think I've never found a survival horror that I disliked that much, but have in mind this is one of the worst ones I've ever played. However, if you like the game, be sure you'll have lots of hours of gameplay, as the game is pretty long -about 20 hours-.
