    Amid Evil is simultaneously breathtaking and exhilarating in a way that most of its ilk could never hope to be. It's truly an epic adventure filled with impressive sights and dangerous foes.

    Amid Evil does everything possible to let the player have a blast in the intricate landscapes of its mystical realms, tearing through a paper-thin quest to exterminate the corruption of the land while tackling the more important task battling and exploring every square inch of the map.

    This is another wonderful FPS from New Blood that pays homage to and improves upon the past in all the ways you could hope for. Do you really need me to say anything else?

    Amid Evil is a new homage to 90’s FPS, but we think anyone can enjoy it thanks to its design, replayability and how fun it actually is.

    Amid Evil is the logical continuation of games such as Dusk and Strafe, inspired by the classics of the genre. It achieves everything in a convincing way — complex level design, varied and original artistic direction, agreeable combat, and a minimalist narrative which sublimates the exploration of worlds. Amid Evil is a game for arcade FPS players, who have not stopped performing rocket jumps since the original Quake.

    No matter whether you’re just touring through these realms of magic or going for full mastery, Amid Evil is a blast from start to finish. Everything from the moody soundtrack to the heart-pounding circle strafing just clicks.

    Astonishingly good old-school shooter heavily inspired by Heretic and Hexen. Must-buy for everybody who enjoys this genre!

    Even the most simple melee enemy has a spammable projectile attack AND what's worse is, the screen goes COMPLETELY red when you take damageEven the most simple melee enemy has a spammable projectile attack AND what's worse is, the screen goes COMPLETELY red when you take damage from a projectile attack, or from a heavy melee attack for that matter. I lose where I am very quickly because of this and I cannot react properly to my attackers.

    Besides that, I don't really like the level design. The areas are too large with nothing in them. The weapons feel too clunky and the animations take too long. This game looked promising to me as a DOOM fan but I just can't recommend it if you're looking for satisfying, responsive, fast-paced action.

    I quit the game in the second level when I died before I could even react because my screen was completely red and I couldn't even see where the enemies were.

    The graphics is too old school for my liking.

    Gameplay is good but there is no real story to the game.
