Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, Disturbing and Tough As Nails The Evil Within is an unfairly critically panned game that will get you plenty of gory, RE4 style horror for your money. Yes, the story is nonsensical. Yes, the protagonist is wooden and uninteresting. Yes, the dialogue is laughably bad. What you get instead is a throwback to classic survival horror conventions with enough modern flair to keep the game from feeling like an also-ran. It doesn’t hurt that the game is gorgeous, making the most of the ID Tech 5 engine and also featuring some of the most disturbing creature designs you’ll ever see in a video game. Laura, the spider-legged, screaming she-beast is one of the most frightening creations to haunt a horror game in ages. The gunplay and crafting system feels right. Stealth kills are very satisfying when the enemy AI isn’t displaying an odd sense of omniscience and boss battles are tense and challenging. Overall gameplay is close to Resident Evil 4 but the atmosphere recalls Silent Hill. Make no mistake – this game is HARD. The Evil Within offers up a stiff challenge and in this age of hand holding, everyone deserves a trophy gaming, that is a welcome breath of fresh, merciless air. There’s plenty of campaign here, too, so if you passed on this game initially do yourself a favor and pick it up now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silent Hill Fans Regoice I normally don't review games on GameStop, but I saw that The Evil Within only had one review and it was a 1 of 10 score and I had to do something. Here is the basic rundown... Visually this game is an 8 out of 10, because you will have to tweak some things to get it just right (triple monitor will work with Flawless Widescreen) and I recommend dropping the grainy effects to less than half. Audio gets a 9 out of 10, for a horror game sound is critical and this game does not disappoint. Gameplay geets 8 out of 10, because controls aren't absolutely perfect, but compared to some of the other games in the horror genre this game won't leave you banging your head on the table. FYI I played with mouse/keyboard, I don't know about gamepad. Story gets a 9 out of 10, this game has some ham acting and is not perfect, but if you are a fan of the first two Silent Hill games then this is for you. It is dark, scary and absolutely graphic as heck. I recommend this game for fans of the horror genre and at 30 bucks it's a steal. BTW the game took me 18 hours to beat and the replay value is a 6 out of 10.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Most Over-Hyped Game of 2014 I remember playing the demo for this game before it was released, and I thought it was going to be incredible. It was made by the same people who made Resident Evil 4, so I figured it would be just as good at least. I wish I didn't have to say this, but I was extremely disappointed. In short, the storyline was very choppy; the A.I. was incredibly unbalanced; the characters were about as cliche as they could get; and the game, overall, was just awful. It seemed to throw horror elements in at random without at least strategically placing them to make them scary. While it had stealth elements, stealth was absolutely useless. For the most part, the enemies would either ambush you, or they would be in the only path of your character, making it impossible to avoid them. While stealth was absolutely useless, the bullets and ammo were very scarce. Even as an experienced gamer, I had issues with ammo in this game. The ending was pretty bad as it didn't explain much for the entire game in general. With the chapters being as randomly thrown about as they were, the least they could've done was give it a more satisfying ending that answered the questions the chapters had established. Overall, it was a hard game to finish because it kept making me not want to finish. I would not recommend this to anyone who wants to play a good game. If you're a fan of the RE games, I would recommend the combat for this game. It's very similar, and it might be the only upside to it. But for the game in general, you might want to look elsewhere for a good game.
