    Ordered this game based on all the hype then read some reviews, and promptly got worried it was going to be crap. Requested a refund and whileOrdered this game based on all the hype then read some reviews, and promptly got worried it was going to be crap. Requested a refund and while waiting for it to get approved started playing it. Finished it in 5 days and can now confirm it was not at all bad, good actually.

    The bad:

    The black border top and bottom, what's up with that?! for me that was the most annoying thing, whether it was done for an atmosphere or graphics limitations or else, bad idea and I was not impressed!

    The graphics on PS3 is rather dated (The Last of Us or Creed are far superior) however once you get into the gameplay its not much of an issue unless you are truly anal about your fps, polygons etc.

    Some of the dialogue is to say the list cliché and to be honest hilariously stupid.

    Controls, particularly when next to walls are poor. Compared to TLOU or Creed, the Evil is a freaking bull in the china shop, peeking around corners should not be this hard.

    The good:
    Bosses! Most are slightly cliché but so is everything else under the sun. Each had been carefully thought through and I was impressed with the variety, almost every level (15 in total) had a different one.

    The story, although full of terrible dialogue lines, is a solid one with no holes throughout or a silly ending.

    The lack of ammunition does add to suspense and inability of killing some enemies is rather an interesting approach. This is not your usual COD title where killing is the only solution; running is something you need to get used to in Evil.

    Weapons, puzzles, level design, lighting, sounds, music, cut-scenes and general atmosphere are all top notch.

    So all-in-all not a perfect title but very enjoyable never the less.

    Most importantly - be ready to die, a lot! (70 times in my case)

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Again you are before a extremely difficult horror-survival game and you'll surely get disappointed if you're only interested in completing it to enjoy the history behind it. The facts are way too crazy for anyone to get minimally involved. But the worst part is that one I said before: even in the supposedly easiest difficulty level, you’ll face too much hard work to play it as an enjoyable game. Believe me, I don’t often have trouble with advancing in games like these, but this one is trouble for sure. And that’s not even good if you’re thinking that being hard is a feature that dares the player to play more and more. The checkpoints are pretty rare, so whenever you fail and die in the game, you’re set back in like 20 minutes before. So, just imagine that if you fail 3 times, you’ll spend an hour playing at the same place in the game and not seeing any new stuff while you play it. For example, you’ll get bored like I did right when you reach in Chapter 3… I got stuck there and I’ve heard and seen many people that had the same problem. It looks like the developers didn’t care about players who play only to enjoy a –movie-like game and don’t wanna spend a life trying to pass hard levels. They should have followed a similar gameplay difficulty of “The Last of Us” – easy (if you want to), brilliant and it’ll even become a movie (that you were not forced to play too much to see the end).

But after first blinking enemy you find that they are common in this game. And fighting with enemy, who love to teleport behind you back is frustrating.

    Also game design is lame, areas are pretty small but empty, nothing to see. Paired with "darkness" -- most of the time you screen shows some abstract 2d picture (badly textured wall).
