    If you’re a true crime fan, this is going to be the one for you, while also showing you the dangers of letting a true crime obsession go too far. Sometimes, I guess we all need a reminder that going to an exact replica of a place where gruesome murders happened is a terrible idea, even if it is in the name of ‘art’.

    The Devil in Me is a worthy conclusion to the first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology. The murder mystery is thrilling from start to finish.

    The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me is a fitting end to the season. Each game celebrates the many facets of horror but this title resonates in a way that surpasses previous entries in the franchise. The voice acting is brilliant and this helps to make the characters feel authentic. As well as this, the improvements in traversal and inventory give it more gameplay options. While the movement is a little stiff and the concept is still cliché, the execution of its storytelling and characterization is to die for.

    While there’s not enough here to convince QTE sceptics, there’s life in it yet thanks to a cast you’ll want to root for and some welcome gameplay additions. [Issue#22, p.82]

    The Devil in Me may not redefine the series, but it's the first title from Supermassive Games where it actually shows that the developer is trying to improve the recipe.

    The Devil in Me is a worthy final chapter in this season of The Anthology. It provides a believable, interesting story that carefully builds tension, but also provides space to build out the releations between the team members. The game is firmly rooted in a classic horror story of a team trapped in a remote location and an all-powerful, manipulative enemy, but the execution really delivers.

    Supermassive Games' formula is crying out for renewal, but they always manage to engage fans, who enjoy these adventures like a good horror movie night. The Devil In Me has technical issues that we can't ignore, however, it is The Dark Pictures' highest point to date.
  8. Nov 28, 2022
    The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me is a good game to close the first season. Even with changes that are not so significant, the title shines in the graphics aspect by bringing more natural expressions, improved effects, and a disturbing narrative.
  9. Nov 28, 2022
    The Devil in Me is a really good, surprisingly well thought out horror game. It offers a tense atmosphere in its beautiful, haunted hotel. Next time, it’d be nice to see better actors and actresses and work on the main characters’ mental side, however. Still, it’s a proper horror to be enjoyed alone or with friends.
  10. Nov 20, 2022
    After a slow start to the series, The Devil in Me is a satisfying end to The Dark Pictures’ first season with its fascinating setting and improved gameplay leaving me excited for the second season.
  11. Nov 18, 2022
    Despite its few flaws, The Devil In Me is a more than fitting end to The Dark Pictures Anthology Season One, improving on its predecessors in the main area in which they drew criticism: weak story. The endings of both Man of Medan and Little Hope, in particular, left many players unsatisfied, but The Devil In Me offers a substantial and sinful story full of dastardly deeds, classic crimes, and unabashed gore. The Devil In Me is a game that immediately deserves a second playthrough after the credits roll - and perhaps even a third, or fourth.
  12. Nov 17, 2022
    Not the best entry in the first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology, but a sure bet for anyone who wants to enjoy a direct, sincere slasher experience.
  13. Nov 17, 2022
    The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me is one of the most interesting horror games of the year, even if its stupendous premise doesn't hold up to the end. A fun and terrifying title that introduces very grateful novelties to a well-known formula.
  14. Nov 17, 2022
    The Dark Pictures: The Devil in Me packages an enigmatic killer, stories of true crime, the spectacle of horror movies, and a group of shy misfits and powerful personalities into a plot that feels deserving of its own big-budget film. It'll leave players questioning everything they know about the killer and each other, and yearning to dive in once again to see other endings, discover more secrets, and try to save everyone.

    A great stride for interactivity, The Devil in Me propels many aspects of the Dark Pictures Anthology forward, while retaining the choice-based storytelling that made Supermassive Games so popular. The setting, visuals and atmosphere are thick with horror and the story is full of curiosity and terrible darkness. This reviewer was so tense during the game he had to take breaks every few chapters... It's a masterful way to end off this set of games and for fans of horror media, add this to your library.

    The Devil in Me is the best possible way to conclude the first season of the Dark Pictures Anthology. The combination of the introduction of new gameplay mechanics as well as the H. H. Holmes inspired villain make for a horror experience that will definitely not let you down. If this is how The Dark Pictures Anthology is going to be moving forward, then the future is bright... terrifying, and bright.

    Supermassive Games successfully concludes the first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology on a thundering note. Powerful performances from a diverse cast of characters and an extremely interesting premise based off of real-life serial killer H.H. Holmes allows The Devil In Me to outshine its predecessors in just about every way.

    'The Dark Pictures Anthology' season one ends on a high with 'The Devil in Me', Supermassive Games' scariest entry in the franchise yet. There are a couple of flaws, but given how much this franchise has improved since 2019's 'Man of Medan' we're more than ready to forgive them, and can't wait to see what Supermassive serves up in season two.
  19. Nov 28, 2022
    The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil In Me is one of Supermassive’s greatest projects yet. You can feel the tension in the air at every moment, and the jump scares are really something. Unfortunately, though, it has some technical issues and the final moments of the story could be much better.
  20. Dec 1, 2022
    The formula used in The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me clearly has not yet reached its final development. These games are definitely on the right track, offering us long hours of entertainment, horror at times, and above all, replayability.

    Atmospheric killer hotel with likeable characters and sensible innovations. It is a pity that the introduction and conclusion were artificially lengthened.
  22. Dec 5, 2022
    The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me uses a piece of real history to deliver a B-movie-level horror show experience. The H.H. Holmes backdrop makes for a devilishly uncomfortable story experience, while the gameplay design falls in line with the DPA game series. The game does have some technical hiccups here and there, but it should satisfy those who enjoy the previous iterations of the series.

    If you’ve played a Dark Picture Anthology game, you know what to expect with The Devil in Me. This one ups the ante when it comes to gameplay, but as I’ve pointed out, the new gameplay mechanics aren’t always welcoming, but for the most part, they are an improvement. Other than the change in gameplay, the game plays very similar to the other Dark Pictures games. Whether the story is good or not, or characters are interesting or boring is all left up to opinion for the most part. I’d say that The Devil in Me is about mid-range when compared to the rest of the series. Honestly, from the beginning it seems like the best one, but then the story starts to drag toward the end and it suddenly doesn’t seem as good anymore. I do feel it’s better than Man of Medan, but the other problems bring it down to Man of Medan’s level.

    Supermassive Games rounds off its first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology with its strongest entry yet in the shape of The Devil In Me. It’s a bit undercooked on the technical side, and it takes a while to get moving properly, but when you get to the meat of the game, it’s up there with Supermassive’s most confident work.

    It may entertain the fan, but it makes it clear that a complete overhaul of the formula is overdue.

Many game breaking bugs that require you to restart the game. A lot of slow crawling and climbing in an attempt to make the playtime longer.
