Hi everyone, I know what some maybe saying but the movie review maybe up by this weekend, this week has been crazy, I am trying my best just to watch the movie let alone to do the review.

Before I say anything I will have the new MLP movie review up by this weekend or at latest early next week. Anyway lets talk about The Evil Within.

Plot: You assume the role of Sebastian Castellanos, a detective who had just gotten through a case along with his partners Joseph Oda and Julie Kidman, after an emergency call they arrive at a mental hospital only to discover that it looks like a slaughterhouse. After an encounter with Ruvik they are actually brought to a world of nightmares, as the people there have succumbed to the evil inside themselves, turning them into vicious monsters. Now they must stay alive in this world and make it out. Now this story is done relatively well with elements from early Resident Evil games with plot twists and puzzling encounters. As for characters, they seem generic all honestly, we have the beat old cop who's rough and tough, the rookie, the sidekick who's an analyst, a mad doctor, etc. but they get the job done and are unique enough to hold their own.

Gameplay: Now this game was advertised as being a horror game that is all about survival. Now to say that is actually both yes and no. Now while there is some jumpscares and everything is dark along with nightmarish creatures, that's all we have here that is truly horror, also to point this out there is aton of blood in this game, not just character modals, but there are areas where everything is caked in it, now after getting use to the stuff from Dead Space it didn't get to me that much. Now you will get creeped out, scared however is something that will vary from person to person, if your someone like me who has played Resident Evil, Dead Space, etc. then it won't really matter, for someone new to the genre it may frightened them I guess. Also to get out of the way, the major problem this game has in my opinion is the camera, now I understand that this was to add tension, but to me it's just annoying at best and it's completely wonky, they should have used the camera from Resident Evil 4, it would have been better that way, it would give us stable gameplay and maintain tension. People have said that this game is basically a reskin of RE4, well that is incorrect, the only area that falls into is the gunplay and that's it. Now for weapons they are basically what you would anticipate, a handgun, rifle, shotgun, knife, etc. but here you can pick up items like in The Last of Us, axes, torches, bottles, etc. and also there are matches that you can use to either burn bodies or burn things to slow down the enemies, now I am gonna say it, you are better off not burning bodies and saving them, for me I have found that once you kill an enemy they stay dead, so there is no point to burn bodies at all! Anyway onto enemies and their a.i., now the enemies here have the same kind of a.i. you would expect as in break line of sight and stealth kill them or shoot them as they come, sort of like Riddick. Now even though a.i. is not much to look at it works great in this game for the most part. In terms of ammunition and items in general they are scarce as they should be and there is a limit to how much ammo you can carry for each weapon, medkits and even how long you can sprint. Now if you sprint, only do it in emergencies as if you don't reserve it for that it can result in your death, because apparently a police officer cant run for three seconds before running out of breath! True to form we have an upgrade system, that from collecting green gel or "brain juice" and you can unlock having more health, upgrading weapons, your sprint and how much you can carry ammo, medkits and that's it.

Graphics: Now this game is like Dead Space in terms of darkness, even if you crank it up to max it's still dark which is great, the graphics are well done and are immersive.

Sound: Sound here is done great and works well, plus the voice acting and sound track is good.

Verdict: With all things pooled together, what kind of game do we have? We have good survival game with some horror elements yes, but as a true horror game that depends on opinion and for me it's honestly mixed. Just because you have a ton of blood and a few jumpscares, does not mean you have a horror game and if you want a good horror game I would recommend RE4, Dead Space and Dead Space 2. But as a survival game it passes with great attributes. This game can hold you attention and if you are will to go through I can recommend this game. Now I wanted to give this game a very high raiting, actually the same as Alien Isolation, but with the mentioned drawbacks I just can't do that, especially since it was marketed as a survival horror game, while it is a good survival game it only has minor to moderate horror elements in place and it tries too hard to ultimitly deliver on it. I will admit this game is probably the hardest game I have ever had to review simply because of the fact it wanted to bring back horror in it's purest form and while it is somewhat horror it isn't completely and that's honestly how I view it. It's a great game don't get me wrongs I am just saying how I view it.

Raiting: 9 out of 10

Positive(s): Great survival game overall and a real adrenalinized game.

Negative(s): While does have horror elements it is not a full horror experience and camera is bad across the board.
