Critic Reviews for Evil Dead: The Game

Evil Dead: The Game is an asymmetric multiplayer game of cat and mouse that's compelling and exhilarating, despite being rough around the edges - much like the horror/comedies that inspired it.

Evil Dead certainly does not feel unfinished, but it does seem to be a first step towards something larger. Saber has an excellent multiplayer game that aspires to be a juggernaut in the hobby, and I hope players take notice.

It's not perfect, but Evil Dead: The Game is the most approachable asymmetrical horror out there and breathes new life into a genre with badass survivors, wonderfully ruthless demons, and a palpable love for an 80s horror icon.

A loving homage to the Evil Dead franchise, but it's a series that doesn't particularly suit the 4 vs. 1 concept, with shallow combat and too little variety.

The good news is future updates can address most of my more minor gripes, but the game is an unbalanced mess at release. Developer Saber Interactive’s commitment to fan service is commendable, and die-hard Evil Dead fans will find this release enjoyable. However, it’s hard to see the lasting appeal for the rest of us.

In a long line of Evil Dead video games, this latest effort may be the most faithful of all, but sometimes it's loyal to a fault.

Solid and definitely have an audience. There could be some hard-to-ignore faults, but the experience is fun.

Evil Dead fans will love the amount of fan service on offer here, from the painstaking recreation of movie locations to Bruce Campbell's goofy one-liners. However, when it comes to raw entertainment value, there's an imbalance between the forces of good and evil. Playing as the survivors can be fun with friends but lacks the fun or variety of being an evildoer.
