Check out the mine trap gameplay video of The Evil Within, the upcoming survival horror game from Tango Gameworks. The Evil Within is development under the direction of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami.
1:46 Can't tell if this comes from Mikami's laziness, or from his will to trigger fan's nostalgia, but I'm pretty sure I've already seen that scene in another game of his lol Anyway, this looks waaay good. Especially the atmosphere. I like it a lot so far, really reminds me of Re 4, which is a good thing since this is one of my favourite games ever.
hahhahahhhhh, so familiar.
We need less sequels and more spiritual successors like this! And more new IP! PLEASE!
So as long as it's nearly the same game but under a new coat of paint ... you will dig it? That's pretty dumb.
The lighting looks great but am I the only one who came out of this feeling massively disappointed??? I thought this was the return of proper horror!? Guns, proximity bombs, army's of undead, ridiculously poor combat & animations. Watched 2 minutes into it & the game went from my excitement scale from an 8/10 to a 2/10.
I'm just not afraid of this game, i'm playing outlast right now hiding in a locker terrified out of my life, and then I watch this and it's not scary whatsoever, not to mention the fact that the name "mine trap" is extremely redundant, we're not stupid, obviously a mine=a trap.
I just beat outlast last night. First person is typically better for horror survival games then third person. Another thing was the enemies look way to slow. In Outlast an enemy sees you and you have to run, close the door behind you and find a place to hide. It gave a great rush and when you find a place to hide your just hoping he doesn't find you. This gameplay video doesn't scare me at all.....
I'm still very excited for this game, but I gotta admit I'm disappointed by how much it seems to be taking from the combat sections of RE4. I hope the rest of the game is more...slow-paced and eerie.
Still wanna check this out, this clip was anticlimactic though, gameplay looks a lot slower than I thought it would be.. Edit: By slower, I mean it seems like your actual actions and enemy response times seem slow. I'm all for slow and deliberate, but this isn't what I was thinking after the glimpses I saw before. Time'll tell, it'd be cool if they incorporated some old-school puzzle elements like they used to with the good old Resident Evil games
I was thinking the same thing. Its hard to tell if this game requires a higher thought process beyond shooting enemies.
I agree.. headshots that did not counted as headshots and in general bullets did not effect sometimes even if he was aiming well, I don't like this kind of inconsistent gameplay.. if I shoot to the head I want him dead and so on.. But it looks interesting.. I will keep my eye on it.
Shinji try to balance action and horror
Hopefully he balances it right. The atmosphere of the game looks creepy, but I'm a little dubious about the amount of shooting and action scenes that have appeared in these gameplay videos. I hope there aren't too many sections in the game where we have to shoot down hoards of enemies.
@ Pozzle My thoughts exatly, action sequences shouldn't just consist of waves of enemies. I'm hoping it has a proper balance between action and horror. Not just hide, hoard, hide, hoard, or that'll kill the game for me. I'm all for balance, but just because it contains equal parts of both doesn't mean it creates balance (I'm not saying that that's what this game is doing, 'cause I have no idea. I'm just hoping it's not). Personally I'm not a fan of waves of enemies, I like my encounters dynamic unless it's a tower defence game or just a 'tower defence' moment.. We'll see though, still anxious to try this game, but the hype's let up a little bit for me for now
I think you misinterpretted what this game is supposed to be then. Mikami never intended to make a pure horror game such as outlast/amnesia. He wants to make the direct sequal to what resident evil 4 successor should have been. Also in an interview he said the purpose of survival horror to him is not be completely vulnerable and run away from it but to be able to conquer it have have that satisfied feeling afterwards. Personaly i like how its shaping up to be and the nods to resident evil 4.
This video isn't new, they already show this. But the more i saw the gameplay, the more it reminded me of RE 4.
I kind of DON'T like how much this looks like RE4. And spider monsters.... NOOOO.
This is an old video from last year but I truly hope this game delivers. I am thinking he is aiming to make this title more Evil Dead (classic not the remake) which isn't a bad thing and I see elements have from REmake with the torching of corpses. I hope if follows through by making the monsters twice as vicious if not properly disposed of. My pre-order still stands for now.......but I want less 4 and more 3.5. Thumbs up to the artists of the scenery which I heard were remnants of the REmake team from Capcom.
Do the characters still drive like tanks?
No. Moving while shooting is possible (but accuracy suffers greatly) and the character instantly turns in the direction your Left Stick commands.
those mine traps looked more like gas traps. i was looking for some explosion.
Well, they are nail mines... They're not supposed to send people flying.
I can't wait to play this game. I hope this isn't like resident evil 4 that game sucked along with resident evil 5.
looks like RE4. Now that's what I will spend $60 on.
@Deadmonkey76 (I missed the reply button) You're kidding, right ? Resident Evil 4 is a cornerstone in gaming, a miraculous achievement in game design. Everything about the game is perfect, the graphics, the pacing, the gameplay, the atmosphere. Well, maybe not the story, but overall this is a masterpiece. Re 5 is a pale copy that shouldn't have been made.
Resident Evil 5 should be spinoff / subtitle name Resident Evil 6 should be cg-movie ( game never happen BUT i like jake) Resident Evil revelations should be Resident Evil 5
Also looked a lot like RE4 to me.
"Pure Survival Horror" in shinji mikami mind is the Balance between Horror and Action. Mikami said that focusing too much on the Action aspect will make the game less scary (RE4), on the other hand focusing entirely on the horror aspect will make the game less fun/entertaining. What the team at Tango is striving for is to strike a balance... A sweet spot that will make a game scary, but fun at the same time.
Thats what I was meaning earlier by going more Evil Dead for The Evil Within. If anyone watched the originals (well the third doesn't count in this discussion even though it is still great.) Sam Raimi managed to accomplish an almost perfect balance with the right amount of camp, horror and over the top scenes. Shinji also admitted that loved the movies and reference it in almost every game he made so it is easy to suspect that he is taking notes and trying to do the same as Sam did. However, I dont like how he thinks most people think that horror must be sacrificed to make a game "fun". Fun is subjective so I am sure there are tons of people who think being scared silly is enjoyable.
Well , This game doesn't meet the survival Horror fans expectations to be honest with you , its just another RE4 that will only please people who did enjoy RE4 in the first place , in other words Mikami is still doing what Capcom does these days but with some "little" horror touches , we still didn't know if this game has puzzles or any SH aspect at this point .
this game looks like its running at 20 fps, i hope this is old footage.
cut from old trailer
Looks like PS3 Game honestly KZ SF looks MUCH better
cant tell... if serious....
This game is really under my radar now. I like the atmosphere and the overall presentation. I don't know about you guys but this is waaaaay better than RE5 and RE6. I hope Konami reboots Silent Hill or creates a new Survival Horror IP! I want the horror back!
Needs a lot more work. Hopefully they will deliver.
it s a bit tragic ...it looks like a remade more cheap RE4 which is no good ...nothing resembles original RE not the mood ,neither the atmosphere ..it will probably sell to US market were people wants explicit violence with no reason and psychedelic monsters
This looks like the game that should have come after Resident Evil 4. I don't care what it's called, I'm just glad it's finally coming. Looks great.
same old gameplay wow wtf... when are they releasing something new its been like 4 months since they showed anything.
Guy's Shinji created the best of the best when it came to survival horror games. Any game that looks anything remotely similar to RE4 is a plus in my book. This is what he does best!!! Now the perfect dream team would be him and Hideki Kamiya the man who made the original Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 1 and 2...Sadly these guys haven't been involved in making a Resident Evil since 4. I will be buying this game on day 1 :)
The music also sounds very much like RE4...
That creepy multi armed ringu chick at the end scared the shit out of me. I'm an unashamed coward when it comes to survival horror although I did beat RE4-6, Revelations, and all Dead Spaces. Stuff like Silent Hill is far more creepy to me. This seems like the direction I wish RE went. It looks like a spiritual successor to RE4 which was my favorite. I may have to give it a go. Il stock up on depends lol.
