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

Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks scare us, they mix puzzles and third person shooting in a reborn survival horror that is visually poor. The Keeper, the Alpha mastodon and other ugly deformed will make you have nightmares. Expand

I don't understand why everyone is hating on it. Yes, maybe is not the best game of Shinji, but the concept is pretty cool. I mean, it is totally a survival game, because you have to use everything in your surroundings in order to survive the many hordes of monsters, not just guns. An the horror, OMG! I swear is one of the games that has given me more creeps and scares than any other, and i gotta say that I don't get scared that easy. The graphics are awesome considering this is the 360 version. And last but no least, the controls. I don't like third person games because some times they're difficult to control. Well, this is not the case. The major problem you could have is the aiming at the beginning, but you will get used to it as you keep playing. All I can say is that you should try it. I think it's an awesome game. Expand

In general, the game is a revival of a forgotten atmosphere represented by Resident Evil 1, 2 and 3. Expand

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

For those who have fun with this game have plenty to look forward to as the game offers a lot of replayability. Not the worst game out there but certainly not the best choice for a survival horror.

    El juego pudo haber sido el renacimiento del survival horror, lastimosamente sólo queda en eso, en una posibilidad.
    Tiene buenos elementos rescatables pero que por cuestiones técnicas y de jugabilidad se convierten en una experiencia rota.
    En momentos es aburrido, en otros es confuso y en algunos desesperante, llega el momento en que deseas que termine el capítulo con tal de apagar la consola e ir a dormir. Lags, bugs y bajones de frames continuos.
    Lástima, pudo ser algo mucho mejor.
