The Evil Within Review Round Up


The Evil Within is out today. Our review is right around the corner, but in the meantime we've rounded up what other critics think about it.



So you wanna see some scores?

GameInformer – 9
GameTrailers – 9
IGN – 8.7
Videogamer – 8
Polygon – 6.5
Metro – 6
The Escapist – 3/5

There are some notable sites missing from the review list for some reason, while Videogamer had to buy their own copy and made the list, sites such as Eurogamer and CVG don't seem to have a review yet. 

It's a bit odd, since scores are great, but there we go.

So what do you think of the reception for The Evil Within? Are you excited for this game? Have you ordered?

My copy should arrive today, before release I expected the game to score around 6-7 so I'm very happy some sites scoring it higher. Glad I finished Alien isolation over the weekend. Really enjoyed 75% of that game, but can't see my self playing through again any time soon. Also glad destiny being patched today, my scout legendary scout rifle is now more powerful (:

First off im gutted bout this game playing on Xbox one,dlc wont work for the fighting chance pack, e-mailed bethesda and xbox, xbox were useless dint even seem slightest bothered, cinema/letter box view and camera is terrible makes the game a lot harder to find items as well as making the shooting more difficult how this game got good reviews has to be bull ****! I love resident evil and had my heart set on this bringing back survival horror im going to play it through. But wow how could they find this reasonable to release reminds me of alien colonial marines i feel cheated and ripped off.

Yeah same here, my fighting chance DLC wont work either, the letter box view is just shit and the camera is way to close to ya character, it should be further away like assassins creed or splinter cell for example, I've noticed a few graphical glitches in the outside areas of the game which are very off putting.

My Fighting Chance DLC downloaded fine, it's just some supplies for in game though no big deal, so you're not missing out there. I'm finding the game fine personally, some nice old school survival horror, the camera is how it's meant to be, you don't want a nice wide view so you can see everything coming, there's no surprise then, and moaning about the letterbox view is just beyond petty.

My DLC worked fine too. Up to chapter 3 so far need to find 'a chainsaw or something'. I actually don't mind the letter box and I think the grainy camera look adds to the old school feel of the game.

Watched a livestream of this last night and it looks kind of rough tbh. Will reserve judgement until I actually play it properly though.

Granted it's nothing the PS3 couldn't handle and TLoU was graphically better, but in fairness, this game is more about the story than just looking pretty

Can get onboard with the comments abou the letterboxed screen its highly annoying and shouldn't be there, apparently its for and i quote "certain gameplay elements" like what exactly? Because I'm on chapter 6 already and I've seen nothing appear in these bars and if its that integral to gameplay why the hell can pc remove them and consoles can't? If they've cut half the screen off to improve framerates then game optomization would be a better option. The camera is kind of annoying too made worse by said letterboxes. This game isn't all it was hyped upto be but its not the worst game ever. It's still better than Resi 6 though haha

Even with the letterbox view and super close camera the game play is quite good and i do like the fact its so much better then the past few resident evil games I've played.

Just been playing some more,got to chapter 4. It's growing on me,very slow burner with great atmosphere.like the fact your not sure what's going on and no real idea of what to do or go. I've turned screen grain option to 0 and I think it's made graphics look sharper. Not been scared yet tho....

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
