Survival horror is making a comeback and it is being pioneered by none other than Shinji Mikami, an absolute master of the genre! The Evil Within is poised to truly put the 'survival' back into 'survival horror', Mikami's thoughts when approaching the project were "that contemporary horror games relied more on action than survival" and we are so ready for his remedy!
Every aspect of the game points towards the goal of making the player feel powerless, rather than the all too common 'slightly inconvienced hero'. Confined spaces, limiting ammunition, and presenting near-invincible enemies are just some of the ways Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks hope to move the focus from action and fighting to survival and escape. Played from a third person perspective the title focuses on scavenging for supplies and getting in touch with your essential fight or flight instincts.
Thankfully it seems Mikami has avoided overshooting to the opposite end of the spectrum and has opted out of making our protagonist, Sebastian Castellanos, a damsel in distress. There will definitely be combat where you fight enemies but it would seem you will rarely be the aggressor. You won't be entirely helpless though, with access to various weapons such as a revolver, shotgun, knife, grenades, and the Agony Crossbow - a projectile weapon that fires bolts capable of freezing, blinding, electrocuting, or exploding enemies. Melee combat is used to put distance between yourself and monstrosities that await you - think a struggle rather than an actual balanced fight.

Great experience survival horror , Better than RE 6.
Buy it now ♡♡
But good game
Started playing and havent stopped, good story so far. characters are very well created. I hope it will develop into a memorable experience.
If you are a fan of horror and or Resident Evil 4 you will enjoy this game a lot. It's very atmospheric/creepy and a lot of fun to play. Plus the amount of influence felt from RE4 is quite satisfying.
It isn't perfect and can be a little frustrating at times, for example the stealth in the game can be harder than it should be because the camera refuses to let you look where you need to so you can avoid enemies sometimes. But its flaws are minor, and its a very well done horror game. Nothing at all like the RE games that followed 4.
the evil within is a good game but it lack control and no scary, to be honest the evil within had some point to make people scare but I find this survival horror game more like a horror fighter, for some reason like this game and I got this game just in time as play-asia promised but with a little damage on the cover make me sad, hopefully next time I receive my game with a good cover as my previous orders.
