In the end The Evil Within has undoubtedly been hand-crafted for survival horror purists, making no concessions to modern day expectations and the new breed of horror epitomised by the likes of Dead Space and Resident Evil 6. If you're going in hoping for a worth successor to Resident Evil 4 then you're most definitely in the right place. The Evil Within never quite succeeds in hitting those heights throughout its 20 hour or so length, but it does a damn good impression and, with Halloween approaching fast, we can't think of many better ways to frighten ourselves witless.
An intelligent, authored, and consistently entertaining game which combines loving references to the horror genre with the distinctive personality of its director.

The Evil Within is a captivating return to the glory days of survival horror whose various issues keep it just short of greatness.
