  2. A flawed but great horror game
    by Han P., USA - Aug 22nd 2017

    From famed Shinji Mikami of Resident Evil fame comes The Evil Within, a game that is meant to be a throwback to older survival horror games where resources were much more scarce and players had to carefully pick and choose their battles. The game is suspenseful throughout but falters in some chapters due to the rather convoluted and admittedly confusing story in the latter half. Not a solid recommend, but definitely worthwhile for fans of Mikami's older works.
