This week, Zero Punctuation reviews The Evil Within.
Lols I can agree. GF rented this yesterday and started playing. Seemed stealthy and then boom let's go somewhere else. Japanese games *sigh*
one of the best games this year. personally it lived up to the hype i had. also its selling really well(500k+ in japan and us combined and topped charts in eu too, a bit of analysis at neogaf estimated it between 400k-650k since it topped fifa) so yeah gamers :1 journalists :0
And as a gamer I care about sales because...? I swear people around here throw around sales figures like their livelihood depends on it, it's so bizarre. And if you liked it good for you, we just have different tastes. Nobody is right or wrong.
50k+ in japan not 500k
Absolutely love this game
This game is awesome. I haven't been able to sit and play much so my playtime has been scattered and short with this game. I like it though. It's everything I was looking for, except it could be more scary. That's ok though. Some of these reviews are just sad
I think if sites going to reviews games, first thing the reviewer must like that type of game, cause I've seen guys that didn't like sport games n review them low n bad cause the dumbass didn't know how to play them, same for horror games, you can't be a sport fan or FPS fan and review horror game....n if he think with in is bad as it gets, maybe he should NOT be reviewing games at all!!!!
Survival horror is basically his favorite genre fyi. Edit: You can't disagree with facts folks. You might not agree with his opinions, but survival horror is one of, if not his most favorite genre.
I can understand why some people hate this game, but I don't have a problem and would actually recommend this game. People keep bringing RE4 into the conversation, this game is completely different. If you go in thinking like RE4 then you won't get past the first stage.
It's as good as a horror game can be
It's got nothing on Alien. I don't like 1st person or horror, but that game is TENSE.
Alien is a lot scarier that evil but they're two different games. Very different. Alien actually scared me. Evil hasn't...yet
does Zero Punctuation even like Videogames?
Yes, the good ones.
what good ones? He has bashed TLOU, Bioshock, Zelda games, Super Mario Galaxy, LBP, Batman Arkham etc. I can't name any positive review from him.
One thing he does not mention is the atmosphere. I thought was good for the most part
I bought this and DriveClub last week, I'm close to trading them both back in this week. As mentioned, the stealth isn't well developed and aiming is terrible. It's more frustrating than scary (especially after dying 5 times in a row. I just don't find it fun. To it's credit, I don't really like "survival horror" games, more like games with horror elements; ala RE4. The atmosphere is great, but some things look way better than others. At times it looks absolutely amazing, other times it looks like a ported PS2 game. However, it seems that graphically the cutscenes are much worse than actual gameplay, which I'd take over the opposite. Overall I'd give it a C- Looking forward to trading this and DC in for FarCry 2.
Far cry 2? Damn dude they're gonna rip you off lol
lol I just noticed that. I mean, Far Cry 2 is a damn good game tho ...
Can't argue with his take on the story and characters, which were terrible. But I loved the gameplay and the design of the environments, and that matters to me a lot more than story when it comes to gaming.
I have enjoyed this game but as mentioned graphics voice acting and tht letter boxing pulls it down hard for me gameplay is great though. Also it is not scary at all for a game meant to go bk to horror it felt more like resident evil 5 just slightly toned down.
I would give this an 8/10. This reviewer doesn't like cool video games.
