The Evil Within Review

Kon’nichiwa fellow gamers, geeks, and nerds! It’s Friday and that means it is time for another game review. Tonight I’ll be doing The Evil Within. Lets go go go!!

The Evil Within or Psycho Break, as it’s known in Japan, is a survival horror game. The game is played in third-person perspective and you play as Detective Sebastian Castellanos in Krimson City. As a survival game you must make use of your surroundings to survive 15 chapters of creatures and evil within the walls and surroundings of Beacon Mental Hospital.

Developed by Shinji Mikami, creator and producer of the Resident Evil series, The Evil Within embodies pure survival horror. Well-crafted environments, intricate story line, and terrifying anxieties are combined to create a world to immerse yourself in and bring you to the peak of tension. The game offers limited resources at your disposal.

Players will start off investigating a mass murder, Detective Sebastian and his partner encounter a mysterious and powerful force you later discover is your ultimate enemy, Ruvik. After witnessing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. Sebastian later awakens and finds himself in a totally deranged world were creatures walk among the dead.

The Evil Within divulges players in unimaginable horrors fighting for their lives as Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel the evil force that is Ruvik.

If you’ve not yet played the game or watched the several gameplay videos on the interwebs I won’t dive too deep into the storyline or the entirety of the gameplay features. Personally I’ve always enjoyed Mikami’s Resident Evil series so I had high hopes for this game. Unfortunately I disliked the ending boss battle and cut scene, but I won’t give that away!
