At its best when the screen is full of enemies, Amid Evil is a badass monster mash.
I'm not as over the moon as I was with DUSK, but that's like saying you didn't enjoy driving the Camaro as much as the Corvette. Obviously the sports car is nicer, sleeker, and prettier, but the muscle car is still a damn fine piece of machinery. Amid Evil is much the same. This is another wonderful FPS from New Blood that pays homage to and improves upon the past in all the ways you could hope for. Do you really need me to say anything else?
Even if you’ve already tired yourself out on retro shooters, Amid Evil deserves your attention as a well-crafted and unique entry in the genre. Whatever New Blood Interactive ends up doing next for FPS, it’s going to be hard to top this opening one-two punch.
Amid Evil is a new generation of retro shooters with fast gameplay, memorable design, excellent pixel violence and great weapons. References to the Painkiller and Doom here look more organic than ever. The only thing that causes disappointment is the lack of multiplayer, not always interesting episodes and sometimes boring bosses.

Anyone who enjoys classic-styled FPS games owes it to themselves to play Amid Evil. It’s a wonderful game that stands on its own.
Amid Evil is a fantastic arcade-style FPS, fast and stocked with weapons that provide a satisfying impact.
Amid Evil is a superb first-person shooter crafted in the classic style, and a more than worthy spiritual successor to Heretic. But it's more than either of those things: it is its own masterpiece, an instant classic for all times.
If you are a fan of classic shooters, you probably already tried Amid Evil, but even if you have the slightest passion for the FPS genre, you will with no doubt enjoy this one.
