    Far Scarier games out there, graphics takes us back to RE4.

    Now, I completely understand that this game has got a lot of love from "Survival Horror" fans, especially the ones that are fans of Resident Evil 4. What I do want to point out that while you may be fans of those, you m... Read Full Review

    Good...but not good.

    When they first told us that The Evil Within was going to be a fresh new horror game style, I never thought it would be a RE4 comeback with improved graphics, AI and bosses. I was aiming for something like Outlast, with... Read Full Review

    The evil it does to my belief in the gaming industry
