Sweet Jesus Christ, this game was awful. I know that usually a review shouldn’t start with this but it does save you a little bit of a read if you didn’t want to read me ranting about how shoddy this game is for an undetermined amount of words. The biggest problem with The Evil Within is that it had so much going for it, before I started playing it. Firstly, it came from a fantastic heritage in that it was directed by none other than father of modern ‘survival horror’, Shinji Mikami. Secondly, the game looked great in pre-release materials. Thirdly, survival horror is completely up my street. It’s a shame really that this ended up being a complete waste of (arguable) potential.
