Resident Evil's spiritual successor


The Evil Within is a good, but flawed, horror game. I've played the game for a while now and got what I expected from it, as well as a few things I did not like. On the plus side, the story turned out to be relatively long for such a game, though quite confusing. I think it's good that the ammo is scarce and very well hidden, especially on higher difficulties, forcing you to manage your resources and think about how to proceed next so as not to fall victim to evil. The difficulty is balanced too, not too hard or too easy. Unfortunately, the black edges interfered a bit with my immersion, but after a while I got used to them. Also, the controls can be a bit tough sometimes, causing you to die in some places simply because of their poor implementation. Despite everything, I can only recommend this game for fans of horror and action alike!

Mind bending survival horror done right


As a newcomer to the survival horror genre, I didn't really know what to expect going into this game. I was very positively surprised when I was greeted with a more high action take on psychological horror, complimented with absolutely mind bending visuals. The art and design are really this game's forte as far as I'm concerned, with set pieces ranging from creepy Victorian mansions to a post apocalyptic city in ruins. Interiors are corridor heavy and always keep you weary of what's around the next corner. The game also really plays with your mind, leaving you questioning what's real and what isn't up until the very end My only gripe with it was that it introduces itself as a stealth-focused game and quickly switches to a more action heavy style. I would've loved more sneaky options along the way to give me kind of a breather. But I guess that's the point, The Evil Within doesn't let you rest. It keeps you on edge from start to finish.

Amazing survival horror!


I saw this game and initially was not sure I would enjoy it. After getting it on sale for a good deal I thought I would give a try. I am so glad that I did! I had a blast from the beginning to the end. If you are looking for solid 3rd person gameplay, survival horror elements, and a fantastic story then this is the game for you!

One of the best horror games in last few years!


The Evil Within is one of the best horror game i've played in many years, this game is really scary and you can not deny it! it's the creation of original creator of Resident Evil series and of course it's gonna blow your mind! The variety of enemies is very good. As you move forward in the game, you see newer enemies, some of which have a particular appeal to the struggle. For example, a kind of zombie that you will encounter in the beginning of the game is invisible and will be a big challenge to you. Boss Fights are also well designed, but fighting them is not hard and scary if you have enough ammo! gameplay is like the titles of past generation, in a way that can bring you the memory of similar games and definitely looks even delightful! The Evil Within is a great game. There's nothing wrong with the gameplay and its extraordinary rhythm. The space and graphics of the game are completely different and create an intense and stressful experience for you.

Has Shinji Mykami presented a masterpiece after 9 years?


In the world of video games, there are great people who can combine fear with something unique. This is where fear becomes important. It takes shape, believed and becomes attractive! Yes, it's the same weird and annoying fear. It's exactly at this moment that a title is born like Resident Evil. After all these years, there was no news of a Survival Horror title that could satisfy the audience, Shinji Mykami, who is believed to be the father of this genre, begins to build a title. It's true that a masterpiece called The Last of Us with this genre came to the whole world and made this amazing experience, but it should be admitted that the title fosters the word in fiction and can not be named after its name A "scary" game. In general, it must be accepted that 2 parts reduce game scores, graphic sections and stories. But the point of the game is its unparalleled sound and attractive gameplay, just think of Resident Evil 4 then remove the bugs in unparalleled gameplay. Replace non-repetitive and new stories. In parts it is weak and in parts it is stronger than the past. Lastly, change its name to the "devil inside" and bring it up to 9 years ahead. This will be exactly the same as The Evil Within.
