    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.

    If you are a fan of classic shooters, you probably already tried Amid Evil, but even if you have the slightest passion for the FPS genre, you will no doubt enjoy this one.

    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!

    While I went into Amid Evil with high hopes, the reality was- it did NOT live up to my hype.
    I am a massive fan of old school games like Heretic, Hexen, Shadow Warrior, Duke 3d and everything I had heard and seen about this game compared it quite favorably to the above. Well, if Dusk is the modern day answer to Quake I certainly can not say that Amid Evil is the modern day equivalent to Hexen or any games in its trilogy.
    My biggest issues are the facts that you could take this game and its game play, reskin the weapons as guns and (apart from the starting axe) I would defy a video game player to be able to tell this was ever fantasy themed. It feels like Dusk with a different color pallet and brighter visuals (minus all the fun platforming and secrets).

    I CAN confidently say that this game has great and interesting enemy design. Each new enemy introduces new mechanics and uses. Discovering which weapons work best with which enemies is a joyful experience.

    Its certainly not a bad game, I might even go far as to call it a good game, at times. I can not, however, justify anything higher than a 7.

    The graphics is too old school for my liking.

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