I was very excited when I was offered the chance to review The Devil in Me, the newest instalment in the Dark Pictures Anthology series. I love horror titles and story-heavy games, and while I have yet to play House of Ashes, I have enjoyed the other titles in his franchise.

At the end of the day, The Devil in Me feels like a safe bet for the series. Sure, it may not be imaginative like House of Ashes or Little Hope, but it serves as a decent choice-driven horror game that I didn’t mind going through the padding to see what was going to happen next. While this is the “season finale” of The Dark Pictures Anthology, I wonder if it will ever really return? I guess we’ll see. In the meantime, The Devil in Me offers a decent experience with little to no issues.

Despite being the most consistently enjoyable installment yet in "The Dark Pictures Anthology" series, "The Devil in Me" is plagued with game-breaking bugs, pointless gameplay mechanics and a lacklustre ending - ultimately making it the weakest entry in the series so far.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me isn't the ideal ending to the show's first season.

Nevertheless, The Devil in Me runs close to being the best in the series alongside House of Ashes, with a good-paced story and genuine characters that are probably better off alive than dead. The gameplay sections have been freshened up, even if the engine and look of everything feel just a little dated for the final entry in the first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology. Hopefully, the second will feel more like a killer attraction.

You may still get some enjoyment out of The Devil in Me if you've liked the other Dark Pictures games, but it's probably the weakest entry to date.

If The Devil in Me is any indication of the quality of the other entries in The Dark Pictures Anthology, it seems I have my work cut out for me. Those are bound to be enough to keep busy until the new season begins sometime next year. There’s already been a teaser to the new entry in the franchise, Directive 8020, which is set to take a sci-fi approach to scaring the ever-living bejesus out of us. Count me in for that, sirs, yup.

Supermassive Games closes the first season of The Dark Pictures Anthology with an irregular but fulfilling title that manages to hook us as much as its predecessors.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me uses a piece of real history to deliver a B-movie-level horror show experience. The H.H. Holmes backdrop makes for a devilishly uncomfortable story experience, while the gameplay design falls in line with the DPA game series. The game does have some technical hiccups here and there, but it should satisfy those who enjoy the previous iterations of the series.

The Devil in Me is a success. If you’re a Supermassive fan you’re not going to be disappointed. It’s more of the same format but this time with a premise and story that’s double the fun and deliciously gory.

In terms of story and atmosphere, it's a fitting finale that continued the legacy of the “Dark Pictures Anthology” series, but technical difficulties and the ongoing awkwardness of the gameplay are annoying.

I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed by The Devil in Me, mainly because the past two Supermassive games were both so outstanding. The controls and visuals took a big step backward, with the controls in particular being extremely annoying. It feels like they rushed to get The Devil in Me out before it was fully ready, which is odd considering they already had two very successful titles released over the course of a year.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me tries new things that don’t work the best but still tells a fearful tale closer to reality, offering a modern twisted take on a historical killer.

A group of documentary film makers receive a mysterious call inviting them to a modern-day replica of serial killer H.H. Holmes ‘Murder Castle’. But on arrival they soon discover they’re being watched, and even manipulated, and suddenly there is much more at stake than just their ratings. A brutal season finale with surprisingly palatable characters, but some issues with the narrative and buggy graphics keep it from its full potential. PS4 copy reviewed.

Supermassive Games adds a new chapter to its horror anthology in which the decisions, as usual, are the big plus point. Ideal to play with friends and get some good scares but without being innovative.

The Devil in Me closes the first season of Dark Pictures Anthology in a bittersweet way. If on the one hand we have a good setting and the construction of a promising theme at the start, the serious pacing problems and some inconsistencies during the narrative make the experience lose much of its charm.

The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me keeps the franchise level with a horror narrative experience that manages to offer good doses of tension and an interesting plot. In terms of gameplay, the game is a small but significant evolution of the formula, but some problems in the narrative and character modeling are bottlenecks that the team still needs to work on.

The Dark Pictures: The Devil in Me has a promising start but ends up being a lackluster final game in the first season of this horror Anthology. Although the formula can still work, as demonstrated by The Quarry, with bland gameplay and uninteresting characters this sub-series clearly needs a facelift.
