The Evil Within

It might come as a surprise to some to discover the Japanese heritage behind the latest instalment in the ever-popular survival horror genre. Just as with Silent Hill and Resident Evil, The Evil Within doesn’t set its action in Japan, but the production team behind the bloody, creepy and furious action is Tango Gameworks of Tokyo. Directed by company founder Shinji Mikami (who also worked on Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4), the game isn’t without its flaws. Tricky camera angles, occasional issues with the rather heavy controls, and a few glitches are just some of the hurdles to really enjoying a stay with The Evil Within. However, genre-fans are used to overlooking the odd flaw when a game packs in some genuine scares and a hefty amount of creep-factor, and The Evil Within has that and plenty more.

A fantastically creepy survival horror game, with a few too many issues to make it an instant classic.
SCORE: 4/5
