    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.

    I personally love this game. Sure, it has some technical issues such as texture pop-in and an enemy automatically detecting you, but this gameI personally love this game. Sure, it has some technical issues such as texture pop-in and an enemy automatically detecting you, but this game such as Enslaved: Odyssey to the West has so much appeal to it, it's easy to overlook them. People often complain about its sagging story in the middle and a boring character and supporting cast, but I see these as the little joys in life. The lack of story in the middle gives you time to wonder what is happening and try to piece it together yourself (good luck with that), and the boring protagonist lets me immerse myself even more. Even if the character responds lightly, it just elevates how truly crazy the game is. This also lets you put yourself in the position because a lack of backstory lets you not wonder about whats really happening to him personally, except in my case, but it lets you think what are YOU about to walk into, not Sebastian Castellanos. Me being me though, I let myself get attached to him. This game will definitely not appeal to every veteran survival-horror player, but there are elements among it that will serve as a callback, like the limited view, the game being a hoarder with ammo and forcing you to compromise, and just the horror elements such as the unknown, psychological fear, and what dominates the game is gore. LOTS OF GORE. Definitely not for the squeamish, but I would highly recommend it to the people that felt cheated out of Resident Evil 5, because this truly feels as a replacement to continue the canon. Even though I liked it and 6, I believe if the series had continued down the path Resident Evil 4 paved, this would probably be the closest to a true RE 4 sequel. Expand

And to be honest, 80% of it is like I was expecting. Good graphics, various weapons, scary enemies, different places to journ on and realistic plot. However, the worst part of it is the difficulty. It's extremely hard to finish it, even on casual. And the cheesy thing is that your parteners split up with you everytime and they are really aidful, but there are few levels when they contribute to your battles. But all in all, is a good horror, a back to black of a resident evil and I really enjoyed. Expand
