Evil Within Review Run-Down
The reviews are up for The Evil Within and, overall, they are very positive indeed. As a big horror fan I knew I would personally be buying this game but expected reviews to float around the 6-7/10 mark given the genre.
Instead, websites such as IGN and Gametrailers gave it solid scores (8.7 and 9.0), praising the game’s strong focus on survival. They did mention the storyline was a bit pants but I wasn’t expecting anything less from a Shinji game…
On the other side of the fence, Metro, Polygon and Joystiq all gave the game scores closer to 5/10, saying the visuals and frame rate weren’t great, so its interesting to see how opinions have differed so much.
Overall it sounds like the game nails that concept of survival and feels like a sequel to RE4, so I will definitely be picking up a copy soon – once Alien Isolation has finished kicking my a** that is!! 😀
