Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really tough game There are only two difficulty settings, and we played the harder one. Seriously brutal. It's creepy/scary all the way through, and the gore is nuts, so if you like that stuff you'll love this one. There is pretty much zero story, but when I want a good story I read a book. It's one of my favorite games. That's pretty much it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not that great I was expecting this game to be incredible. Waking up in an insane asylum, trapped? How awesome is that? Not really. This game is really boring, and has many glitches.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissapointing I had very high expectations for this game after seeing the television ads for it and finding out the creator of resident evil was also involved. Well I was incredibly dissapointed, I bought it, played it for like ten chapters and already had enough. My main problem was how stiff and almost unfinished the controls felt, the movements were very slow and delayed. Then when you do move somewhat fast to sprint, it runs out in like two seconds... Really? I think a cop would have better cardio than that. The camera angle was way too close, it was hard to tell what was around you or behind you cause I felt like I was like a monkey riding on his back the whole game. An angle more like Silent Hill would've been better. The shooting and aiming was awful and very inconsistent and the melee was just too awkward to even try on anyone. The visuals were kind of a let down too, the color scheme was very bland and there was little detail in the characters faces and just overall not up to today's standards. It reminded me of an early PS3 game. Lastly, despite them obviously trying very hard at it, I just wasn't scared, and that's what I was expecting. So by the tenth chapter, I still hadn't really jumped or anything so I just stopped. This game had tons of potential that didn't exactly suffice in the end. If you're looking for a good survival game, I'd try The Last of Us: remastered or Dying Light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind Blowen This game starts out slow, but can suck you in after about an hr or 2 depending on how good of a gamer you are. It different will make you think about how to kill as many enemies as possible so you don't use up all your ammo. The story once you complete it will have your head spinning. It's not easy to follow you do need to think. If you think you will just run though this game like Resident Evil 4, 5 or 6. You crazy. It's the old school make you think, give you no ammo Resident Evil. I can run through must games in about 12hrs. This took me awhile, and i wanted to find everything, & kill everything. It's a heart bounding adventure alright. Pick it up if you want something to keep you busy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Thrilling Loss of Sanity The Evil Within was, in my opinion, a delightfully dark game that had me engaged from stem to stern for its nearly 20 hour campaign on my first play through. I found myself wanting to further discover what the games plot had to offer and although it had points where you thought more effort could have been given, it didn't hamper the overall experience that the game has to offer. You play as Detective Sebastian Castellanos and you are looking into a mass murder case at an asylum. Not long after entering you are captured by a supernatural individual (later known as Ruvik) and that's when the ball starts rolling. It throws you right into a butchers block where The Evil Within flaunts its ability to make you feel on edge and chill to the bone. As everyone knows, the opening sequence you are defenseless and without a weapon being chased around by a chainsaw wielding lunatic and you know if he catches you, you're dead. This, along most of the first half of the game, you see how thrilling it can be and how insignificant you are in this dark world where everything in it wants to rip your head off. But, as you begin obtaining more and more weapons for your arsenal the levels become progressively easier and lifts the intense feeling of helplessness that was present early on. the game is still extremely fun to play though. You have a regular variety of weapons (pistol, shotgun, machine gun, etc,) but the game also throws in a crossbow that becomes your best friend. You craft bolts for this crossbow of many different varieties to aid you in the slaughtering of common enemies and bosses alike. It adds more strategy and room for movement when you have it around and have the right kind of bolts for the job. My big pet-peeve for the game, though, is its recycling of bosses. Sure Laura was an awesome boss but that doesn't mean you need to reuse her two other times after her reveal. This also happens when the boss the Keeper is used two more times after you thought that you killed him in a kind of gas chamber by smashing him. I loved the first boss fights against these characters but when they used them two more times I thought it showed laziness and the lack of thought in order to think up another terrifying boss. But if this is the only gripe I have on the game then you know it must be pretty good and I highly recommend you give it a whirl. If you enjoyed the review then hit that thumbs up and add me on PS4 if you want TheNewYork97. thanks for your time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Color Where's the color in this game? I understand that the makers were trying to set an eerie atmosphere by making the game look dark, but they went too far. It looks as if you're playing a Black and White game, not enough color. Even Resident Evil had color back when it first came out. This is not a fun game to play in my opinion.
