The Evil Within
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A Journey Worth Waiting For
As the type of person who is open to new IPs, I quite honestly cannot wait until the end of next year for this game. From all that I have heard and seen of the game, it sounds positively amazing. Cannot wait!
