The Evil Within
You Are About to Enter a World of Survival Horror!
The game looks great it's like a mix of Resident Evil 4 with Silent Hill and I'm all for it and I have a high hopes for it mainly because it's being made by none other than Shinji Mikami the creator of Resident Evil!
JUST GOT MY COPY!!!
STARTED PLAYING 10 MINUTES AGO AND I HAVE JUMPED AND BEEN CAUGHT OFF GUARD 5 TIMES!!! THIS IS DEFINATELY A SCARY GAME, NOT FOR THE WEAK HEARTED. I AM RECOMMENDING ALREADY.
Ready For the Terror!
The Evil Within looks like it'll be an absolutely amazing horror game and i can't wait for it to hit the shelves in August. The atmosphere is chilling, the music and sound make it horrifying, and the enemies that lurk around each corner look terrifying. From what i've seen for gameplay i am looking forward to the intense suspense that this game will have to offer and am ready for all the jump scares to scare my pants off. This will be a must have for survival horror gamers and will be flying off the shelves when it arrives in August. Again i will repeat myself, if you are a horror fan you will definitely want to buy this game! If you agree with my preview then hit that like button; if not give a thumbs down. And comment your thoughts as well. Also if you'd like add me on PSN (miguelyorkes222 or ZeGamerBoy). Thanks
Good at creating suspense, but story falls short
I'm a huge Resident Evil fan, and I was looking forward to this game because it seemed like it was going to be THE game to finally give me that scare I've been longing for, to be able to feel so uneasy that I have to stop playing it. Now, although there were points in the game that were eerie and left me feeling unsettled, I was mostly disappointed with this game. I spent more than half of the game trying to figure out what was going on, gameplay got repetitive (though most games tend to), and all those awesome scenes that looked really scary in the trailer lasted no more than 30 seconds to a minute. I never felt like my life (in game) was in any real danger, blood and gore was a little over the top in some parts, and towards the middle of the game, I found myself just wanting to finish it because I was getting bored with the gameplay. On the plus side, this game does make ammo pretty scarce, so a lot of times you'll end up fighting an enemy with little to no ammo, adding to any stress you may encounter. The voice acting in my opinion, could have been done a lot better, but I blame that mostly on, again, the writing/ storyline. Overall, this game was moderately entertaining. I would play this when I'm bored and feel like being kind of "scared".
Old style horror is back
Sure the game's story isn't original but when in a world of games that are only first person shooters what is. this game brings back the memories of silent hill 2 and the older resident evils unlock the newer horrors like dead space (no offense to dead space fans, i just find it to gun ho). the thrill of having little ammo and fire power as death lurks around every corner is quite satisfying. Though the graphics aren't the strongest you will be satisfied and besides the best horror games don't rely on their graphics. as said the story isn't unique but that isn't the selling point it is the horror which is done tremendously and i would recommend this to anyone looking for a different game then then the first person shooter line-ups coming out. Warning this game is hard and you may rage but it is not unfair and everything is possible.
The Game was a Let Down
I was very excited for this game to come out, and when I got it at the midnight release I beyond happy. Once I put in the game however I was greeted with a 15 minute long installation bar. The installation wasn't the ps3, it was the game. What it needed to install as a CD I'm not sure. I enjoy exploring in my games, so when I ran around mindlessly looking for loot, which was scarce, left me annoyed. Also at the beginning I realized that I could clip through people, excluding enemies. I'm generally an easy-to-scare person, but the whole time I was playing I wasn't scared - just annoyed. The graphics while decent were still unpolished, the gameplay is unfair (especially on the normal "survival" mode), the sound, well there is none, and overall I couldn't see my self playing it alone. With friends, maybe, just so we could make fun of all the bad things.
Theres Beauty within Insanity
Theres a certain kind of beauty behind a game that forces you to go out, all by yourself, in a hellish, rundown environment, filled with creatures straight out from under your childhood bed. It deeply saddens me that there are very few great ps3 survival horror games these days. Most importantly, and i know its not just me, but where are the games that make me believe i'm slowly falling into insanity as i play them? For example, Dead Space 2, on my first play through it had me questioning my very sanity. (TIP: Cannabis greatly enhanced this experience ) So if "The Evil Within" is anything like Dead space, Resident Evil(pre RE5), and Silent hill then this game is most certainly at the top of my Game list, as it should be on yours.
Not what I expected
The games was not what I expected. I didn't see this game as a horror game, but as a mystery game. I find the first resident evil games scarier than this. This game is not worth buying When I compare it to "last of us".
Better than what i expected
I bought this game on the day of release of this game, but did not start the game until Halloween night, I started the game that night, and i have to say not only is it scary, but it is also pretty difficult. you have to really be stealthy, if you mess up you will regret it. only thing i dont like about it, is that when you are aiming, the camera zooms in up to a point you just see the hands and the gun, in the demo previews, the way the aiming was, just like the game resident evil 4. who knows maybe it might change later in the game, as i am only on chapter 3. but other than that the game is fantastic.
This game makes you crazy, but a good way
If you like horror games.... This is for you. You experience to survive this nightmare of monsters or crazy people.
