Evil Dead: The Game Reviews
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.
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.
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.
Evil Dead: The Game surprised me in every single way. It was more than I expected. The attention to detail in the characters, enemies, and environments. The Knowby cabin is outstanding and nearly a 1 for 1 replica. The finishers are beautiful, the environments eerie and creepy, the gameplay loop addictive, but most importantly it is fun. Boss Team Games & Saber Interactive should be hailed for their attention to detail to Evil Dead the Game. It is quite apparent a lot of love, time and care went into it. Even if you are not a fan of the films or have no clue what Evil Dead is, there is still plenty to enjoy here. If you are a fan of Evil Dead, Dead by Daylight, or other asymmetrical PvP games, it is imperative that you pick up Evil Dead: The Game.
A riot of love for fans of Evil Dead, a fun multiplayer but that needs several improvements and considerable post-launch support to be able to impose itself.

Evil Dead: The Game works as an asymmetrical multiplayer and as a great tribute to the franchise. By polishing some details, we could be looking at a new benchmark of the genre.

Evil Dead: The Game is a good time, albeit demanding (it appears single-player missions have everyone struggling), but it truly lets itself down by not having basic accessibility settings available to players. The game itself is certainly impressive in terms of its fresh gameplay and remarkable graphics, and there’s good fun to be had for fans of Evil Dead and Sam Raimi. However, horror fans without an affinity towards the series will likely find more fun in alternative multiplayer horror games, and they’ll probably find more accessibility-friendly games, too.
Evil Dead: The Game is a fun, varied horror experience with plenty of challenges and depth, even if you choose not to play as any of the 4 Ash variants.
Evil Dead: The Game is a great concept for an asymmetrical multiplayer game, but poor combat and terrible balancing makes it hard to recommend.
Evil Dead: The Game is one of the better asymmetric multiplayer horror games out there, but it's severely lacking content in its current state.
Gory asymmetrical horror is a demonically fun, well balanced power struggle with boomsticks and bonus Bruce Campbell
Evil Dead: The Game expertly represents all the key pillars of a damned good asymmetrical horror multiplayer title. Gorgeous visuals, excellent gameplay, and a fascinating core loop make this a must-play for fans of the genre.
Evil Dead: The Game is a great addition to the survival horror asymmetric multiplayer genre, whilst it may not add anything drastically new, fans of the series will simply love the attention paid to recreating this iconic lore.
We were curious without expecting much, but here we are forced to see that this Evil Dead: The Game is successful. Saber serves us an ultra faithful to the license, very fun, which has as a bonus game mechanics both intelligent and fun.
