    A palm sweating experience.

    I finished RE7 not long ago and thought no other horror game could top it, but boy, was I wrong. The Evil Within taps into many emotions. Fear, paranoia, desolation, hopelessness, and more. Although this game is in 3rd p... Read Full Review

    Too heavily inspired by Resident Evil

    a mix of Resident Evil + Silent Hill with a bit of Alan Wake = The Evil Within

    There are plenty of scares to be found in The Evil Within that will make you lose your mind.

    Survival Horror games have lost their scares in recent years, mostly relaying on guns, explosion and very weak effective scares plus which take away the suspense and tension away from the most horrific of scenes. Shinji ... Read Full Review
