The Evil Within
I wanted to get this tape and have fun with it. I went all the way to chapter 6 and really started to find this game just plain boring. It's just about all straight forward, except for running around looking for ammo, keys, gels, and so on. All you do is look mainly for ammo to keep you alive. There are check points but at times they don't come soon enough. And not to mention SAVE MIRRORS if you get to them. You can see some game play that was seen before in other games, nothing really new or different. I thought by the first chapter that this was going to be really good. But it started getting boring in the middle of Chapter 2. I got really bored of it and took it back!
The New Horror Game?
The trailer reminds me a lot of the Hellraiser movies, so I'm intrigued as to how Bethesda and Mikami will trump the RE (and my favorite, Dead Space) franchises. I hope it doesn't turn into one of those games where it shoves a graphic image in your face and expect to be scared. I want suspense, atmosphere, and anxiety. This could be difficult, but I trust Bethesda in delivering the goods.
I am going to have to admit, being a horror lover, that The Evil Within is one of the best games that I have ever played. It has suspense, heart-pounding tension, and terrifying bosses. If anyone else loves a great horror game, I would have to recommend this very game. Personally, in my opinion,The Evil Within never gets old.
A fair scare!
I play dead space, bioshock, condemned, and dead island. And none of them deliver the creepy and morbid feel that this game does... If you'er a horror fan this really is a solid buy.
This game is the boss of all survival horror games. silent hill and resident evil aint got nothing on this game. suprising how the xbox one graphics are also on the 360 version. its a little laggy and the screen is kinda small but those problems do nothing to the game. its still awesome.
Personally I thought it was a great game, it wasn't as scary as I was hoping though but it did have me at the edge of my seat nervous on whats about to happen which is why I gave it a 9 and not a 10. There is a lot of traps and puzzles you have to deal with and also are limited on ammo the boss fights are intense as well. Yes it does have its similarity's to the Resident Evil games, but it still has its own feel to it too. Over all I'm not disappointed and I don't think you will too.
Reminded me so much of resident evil 4 especially how it all looks. Almost has the same graphics which I didn't mind at all because it makes the game a little creepier having the graphics like resident evil 4. Love the game and I like everything about it. Its everything you would expect in a horror game and does not leave you dissatisfied. Dont want to spoil anything so the best thing to do is get it.
Decent Survival Horror
I bought this game because of my love for Resident Evil 4 and all the reviews I read and gameplay I saw reminded me of it. I'm not an expert at third person and felt this game would have done better as a first person game or at least had the option to change like skyrim did. It does have some scary moments that did make jump but after I knew what too look for I found myself running past most of the enemies. I've only played through the first 2 chapters so I don't know if I can keep that tactic up and I doubt I'll be replaying this but I do suggest this game to others
Honestly Im not one for major horror games I have to say this is the first real horror game I have ever played. That being said I was drawn into the game via morbid curiosity and now that I have played the game myself and seen most of the game via youtube Im blown away at how well this game attacks the horror genre. The overall storyline is a shocker by itself. I won't spoil the details here but I must say I never saw that coming. Even playing it on the most simple of difficulties presents a challenge. I would definitely recommend this game and have done so a few times. See it for yourself definitely worth the money I payed for it.
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.
