I’m both excited and concerned about The Evil Within. I’m excited because the game looks interesting and the trailer I saw was creepy as hell. I’m concerned because a lot of people are comparing this game to Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 4 was a terrible game. It’s just one glorified escort mission with one of the worst main characters i’ve ever played as in a game. News on this game is nonexistent right now. There are a few things being said but not much.
The only thing the I saw in the gameplay teaser was the main character hanging from a hook trying to grab a knife from one of the nearby corpse so he could escape. A few moments later he triggers an alarm and runs for his life as something big with a chainsaw chases him through a narrow hallway and eventually kills him. I’ll be honest… nothing I saw here interested me in the game. It looked like they were just forcing you into a “scary” situation.
The Evil Within will release on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Pc, and next gen consoles. As of right now i’m going to pass on this game. Running through a hallway to your eminent death isn’t scary. Running from a hulk wielding chainsaw maniac isn’t scary to me. I don’t need chase scenes in a horror game to get scared.
The only advertisement on this game is that Shinji Mikami made it. So what? I absolutely hated Resident Evil 2, and 4 because of Leon. Something being made by him is a reason to be concerned as well as it is to rejoice. As it stands The Evil Within looks like an interesting title but it also looks too much like Resident Evil to be considered an original idea. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.
