The Evil Within - Preview | GamingLives

GamingLives gets hands on with Tango Gameworks' upcoming scare-em-up, the dark and grainy Evil Within.

"Ultimately, The Evil Within doesn’t yet live up to my expectations. It wasn’t that I expected to be scared and wasn’t, as I genuinely didn’t foresee any fear, but I did at the very least hope for something which served the psychological aspect well by making sense. If the world around you is questionable and has a myriad of features which appear to exist only as plot devices to drive the horror aspect, but which have no discernible reason to be there (ammunition and grenades within an asylum, the ability to only carry eight matches at once despite having room for a shotgun, along with bombs and booby traps which aren’t triggered by lumbering creatures) then the fear is surely lost if there is no sense of reality to evoke an immersive state." (PC, PS3, PS4, The Evil Within, Xbox 360, Xbox One)
