The Evil Within
I finally beat this game & it was awesome. While it didn't scare me the gameplay was good. This game was challenging & I wasn't going to back down. Do yourself a favor & buy this game. I guarantee you won't regret it.
best game in years!!!
This game has been so freaking addicting I can't stop playing it! It absolutely sucks you in and has you on the edge of your seat wanting more.
WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY
Where to begin? Lets start with gameplay. Controls are very unresponsive, and seem to be off. Aiming is almost pointless, example : having the target in the crosshairs at close range only for it to some how completely miss, and its happened with the revolver and shotgun. Melee combat is another pointless feature, even with melee being fully upgraded it still doesnt do much damage. Glitches and terrible camera angles make it at times so hard to fight, shoot, or run. The run feature is a joke as well. Again fully upgraded still seems like Sebastian is running with weights on his legs. Graphics are very disappointing as well. Closeup shots of characters are nice but there is so much blurry and just plain scenery that would be expected on previous generation systems which is a huge disapointment. Theres really not much to be happy or impressed with in this game. You spend $65 on it and expect to get your moneys worth out of it, well this game not only an disapointment but the developers should be embarrassed that they put such garbage out. It has now become the most expensive coaster in my house.
This game is amazing. The suspense and horror of this game is exactly what i was hoping for. It keeps me on the edge of my seat constantly waiting to see what creepy but exciting thing happens next. The only thing i do not like about this game is the sound. The way the zombies sound you can not tell how far away or how close they are to you. The noise is almost exactly the same if the zombie is right around the corner or many feet away just walking around. It makes the game confusing at parts. Other then that I love this game and would absolutely recommend it to anybody who loves horror/suspenseful games. I still can not put the game down. This game gets a 81/2 9 to me. Would be a 10 if they fixed the sound to make it seem a little more realistic. I am in no way hating on this game. This is just minor minor details that i have found in this almost flawless video game. Like i said i recommend this to anybody who would like good scare or two while following a great story line.
Challenging game, but somewhat disappointing
Resident Evil fans will see a ton of RE-esque elements in this game. You are going to die a LOT in this game. It's not scary in my opinion, it's more gory and filled with WTF moments if anything. The devs recently released a patch for PC owners of this game to give the player the CHOICE to keep or do without the black bars above and below the screen (letterbox). It's annoying. Also, the game is locked at 30fps. It's a poorly optimized game in my opinion because my PS4's fans are already blaring after only a few minutes of gameplay (and I got this via digital download, not a disc). There are times where this game has difficulty spikes that are just unfair to the point where you don't even want to play anymore. But other than that, that sense of reward after you do beat a level/boss is satisfying. I only wish the story wasn't so 'meh'. Overall, I'd wait till the price dropped on this game. It's a good game, don't get me wrong, it just somehow falls short.
Survival Horror Returns!
Shinji Mikami has once again woven a masterpiece! TeW is what Resident Evil 5 should have been! It's brutal, it's heavy on resource management, it has atmosphere and great level design, the sound is perfect for the genre and the enemies are all awesome! In essence this is the game Survival Horror fans have been begging for, for a long long time. This is not a game for the average CoD run and gunner, some people will not like this game! It's not trying to hold your hand and you WILL die a lot. The story is better than what i was lead to believe and the letterbox(black bars) are not a concern for anyone with a real TV! The 30FPS functions perfectly in this game, if it were a fast paced shooter you would notice it but you DO NOT notice it here. After RE turned into a Michael Bay action flick with zero heart, this game feels like a true return to form from the man who started Resident Evil! Buy this game! Ignore the haters!
Okay but not up to current standards
I was pumped up for this game and I was initially disappointed with the graphics and lack of story. although shadows and slow movement look okay, I found many dips in frames where the game should be running at 60 fps. Coming from the computer gamer category, I found the new standard of 30 fps to be obsolete. Hand combat is weird. I can bash at a zombie 7+ times, shoot them in the head four times and the zombie isn't killed; but then I can sneak up to a zombie and stab it to death instantly. The movement feels sluggish. I feel it could have been up to the last of us standard, but falls short. Glass bottles are placed conveniently where you'll need them for distracting enemies which I found slightly annoying. I will say the first chapter had my heart pumping with the big guy chasing me, but ultimately i found the game be a cheap knock off of silent hill, resident evil, and outlast. Im surprised others gave it such good reviews.
Not Worth full price!
Like everyone else who ran out to get this game. I was excited to play and maybe get some scares out of it. I have played Silent Hill and Resident Evil games and I was hoping that this game would blast them out of the water. Unfortunately the graphics was a huge let down to start with. I felt like I was playing on my PS2. The story line was very boring. And nothing made any sense during the game play. I wasn’t scared and can see that they were trying hard to do so. Again I felt like they just copied Silent Hill. Did anyone notice that the Mansion towards the end resembled a lot like the first Resident evil?? I would say keep your $56 and wait for this to come down in price to buy it used. Can’t see how some people were so in love with this disappointing game.
A Total Letdown
From the opening level, where the shoddy graphics allow your character's torso to float above rocks in the sewer, to the storyline that tells you nothing about why you're doing what you're doing … it's terrible. The levels are all dark, and there's so little going on that the repetitive enemies are just that: repetitive and boring. I may come off as harsh, but as a college student, I need to make every dollar stretch, and being taken for a ride for over $60 makes me angry. The viral marketing campaign worked, and it's too bad that the game didn't live up to the hype.
Well to start off I had seen this game in a couple of Articles on IGN decided to look further into it. When they played the game at PAX they said that it wasn't worth it. I had found out two weeks ago that it was coming out soon and decided to check it out. I preordered it, picked it up the first day and when I came home, I was up until 1:00 AM still playing it, and still loving every second of it. I literally was screaming at my character to run away when I had no ammo and was too scared to go up against anymore of the Haunted. I currently am still going through my first play through and am pretty far into the game and am still terrified of what behind the next corner. Personally I am in love with this game and is probably the best game that I've played this year. If anyone is looking for a good game that will scare the cr ap out of you (especially during Halloween time! ) then this is the game for you.
