To many, Shinji Mikami is the god of survival horror within the gaming industry. He is a master of suspense and bizarre surroundings, turning everyday locations into nightmarish horror houses for us to survive in. As I find myself in the 12th chapter of The Evil Within, I'm wondering where this director's future will take him. Is he happy to make The Evil Within another one-off title like Shadows of the Damned and Vanquish? Or shall he make The Evil Within 2 or return to save Capcom's awful streak with Resident Evil 7?
Evil within 2
RE6 and Evil Within were both very disappointing.
I'll be looking towards the new Silent Hill to get my horror fix.
None, RE its main problem is Capcom itself, Evil Within I see it as an average game, dunno who idea was that throwing buckets of blood everywhere and putting those horrible black bars(I'm seeing you 1886 too) was a good idea. I tried to like the Evil Within saw lots of streams and videos, tried to find something that appeal to me but I didn't find none, still in the long road will try it when is on a bargain.
Did anybody bother reading? If it were in Mikami's hands would ou take RE7 or Evil within 2? Resident evil 7 might be more horror based with him help developing it.
The Evil Within laid a good foundation (7.5-8/10 imo). With a proper next gen engine and more polish than this one (framerate, the camera,and the screen ratio made for a really annoying combo in this one), and some good time in the oven, maybe the next one can reach Resident Evil 4's level of greatness. Neither were what I'd really call scary though.
