    A convoluted compendium of horror clich├ęs that superficially invokes mental illness, The Evil Within distinguishes itself as the most pandering survival-horror game yet.

    Good plot and environment, but it leaks for the graphical aspect, that is awful, and for the gameplay control aspects, as the camera and sneakGood plot and environment, but it leaks for the graphical aspect, that is awful, and for the gameplay control aspects, as the camera and sneak elements. In general, the game is a revival of a forgotten atmosphere represented by Resident Evil 1, 2 and 3. Expand

    On the scale of gave-up-after-a-few-hours to played-through-it-a-few-times, this one scored aOn the scale of gave-up-after-a-few-hours to played-through-it-a-few-times, this one scored a played-once-almost-replayed-it-but-decided-to-sell-it-on-instead. It had its great moments, but I couldn't face it again - and unfortunately that's NOT because of how scary it is (or isn't). I found this game quite annoying! Your character is very restricted in capability, the environments too confined (I would have liked some more creepy open spaces, where you weren't immediately forced into fight/escape). Gore too often takes the place of atmosphere - corpses and blood everywhere does not equal spooky. Finally: too many hallucinations! Expand

    The biggest waste of 2014

    I do not know what the developers were thinking at stake. Probably nothing. - The graphic comes from the PS2. -
    The biggest waste of 2014

    I do not know what the developers were thinking at stake. Probably nothing.
    - The graphic comes from the PS2.
    - The bars above and below limit the field of view.
    - I miss the survival game. All I see is only slaughter.
    - Hordes of enemies instead of horror.
