    Resident Evil 4 again

    This game was a fantastic experience. It is intense, difficult and unforgiving. But, compared to titles like dark souls, it is a walk in the park... At night... As a teenage girl in west Baltimore. If you liked resident ... Read Full Review

    Resident Evil Within.

    The Evil Within is a wonderful thing. While it unfortunately isn't quite a return to the survival horror of old, it at least makes for a brilliant blending of the then and now. It involves a lot of the hallmarks of the ... Read Full Review

    Unexpected Experience

    Contrary to popular opinion this game is need-to-know experience. The athmosphere takes you into game with the help of sound. I will write a simple explanation. I played every one of horror games; each one has i... Read Full Review

    Satisfying Horror that makes you work for it.

    The absolute best thing about Evil Within is that it MAKES you get good at all aspects of the game. We've all played games where once you get the right BFG or the right amount of armor, you barely rely on your other ava... Read Full Review

    The Most Original Horror Game Ever *Sarcasm*

    Oh man! When you look at the cover, it feels such an interesting and scary as hell game. The first chapter made it have this unique look but once you passed that, the game is another stupid zombie game with scarce ammo ... Read Full Review

    Feels like Resident Evil mixed with The Last of Us!!

    When I first started playing THE EVIL WITHIN it reminded me of when I first played RESIDENT EVIL as a kid. As I kept playing through the game I was very impressed with storyline, graphics and gameplay. Very atmospheric... Read Full Review

    Perfectly flawed

    Before I start.... I felt it was relevant to say I never played very far into RE4... in fact I only played a few levels in on the Wii version that came out in 2007... so I had no super high expectations for this game lik... Read Full Review
