Experience firsthand the powerful force that is The Keeper in The Evil Within: The Executioner. This third and final add-on for The Evil Within places players in a series of battle arenas all from the first-person perspective of The Keeper. Initially armed with The Keepers signature hammer, players will fight against a host of The Evil Withins iconic villains to earn new weapons and upgrades. Set in the Manor House of the Victoriano Estate, The Executioner features first-person melee combat combined with exploration and discovery as players unearth the story of a man forced to become The Keeper.

6.5 / 10.0

A briefly entertaining yet inessential addition to The Evil Within universe.

In short, this is not a game for everyone. Still, I had a cousin who totally enjoyed playing this game and bashing the undead all over the place. If a first-person, Splatterhouse-type game is your idea of a good time, though, you'll want to give this game a look.

The Executioner is fun. That is something that it definitely holds over the previous expansions, and the minimalistic approach to the story helps to keep players in the experience.

Although the new arena-based melee combat is an interesting and commendable sidestep from The Evil Within, The Executioner doesn't offer much in the way of a story or deep combat, making up for it with a low price and decent replayability.
