Summary: I must say this game is top notch survival horror straight from the early days of Resident Evil. All though this game has it's own flavor and character and has absolutely nothing to do with Resident Evil, it has that Resident Evil 4 type feel and look to it. Granted the graphics aren't that special but you should expect that from the older systems now that the newer consoles are out so...
Summary: only 3 words that keep me playing this: SURVIVE ! SURVIVE ! SURVIVE ! I'm currently in progress of chapter 2 that this game gives me eerie feeling every step of the way. Sneaking away from enemies would keep my heart jaw-dropping, hoping Sebastian to escape every time. Shinji Mikami delivers its best gameplay yet of this new series.

Summary: This game is absolutely fantastic: the pure unadulterated survival horror that many of us have been waiting over a decade for. Resident Evil 4 minus the campy elements, improved game mechanics a la The Last of Us, bizarre interdimensional/psychological time-space shifts reminiscent of Silent Hill, and some aesthetic nods to all of the aforementioned as well as some Hellraiser for good measure, The Evil Within draws from a variety of horror classics but synthesizes them...
Summary: I don't know where these 5 star reviews are coming from, but The Evil Within is a total mess. If there is a decent game here, it's hidden beneath a wealth of technical issues and bad design choices that are frankly appalling to see in a 60 dollar game. The letterboxing is god awful, for one.
Summary: I want to start with the fact that I am not a "gamer" and to better explain that statement here is an example: I know of a good handful of poems that I love but I am not a lover of poetry nor am I a poet. Does that make sense? I hope so... I don't just buy games because they are new or for graphics. I buy them because there is something about them that is within my scope of interest. I'm a fan of horror, westerns, and space/tech oriented sci/fi.
Summary: The Evil Within was something that I was looking forward to for a while because I was excited for a new survival horror series to spawn and to shake things up a bit. Unfortunately, this game is like one big homage to Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and relevant slasher flicks. I understand this was created by Shinji Mikami, who created the Resident Evil series, and you can definitely tell with the character models, cut scenes, and the game play mechanics.
Modern 3-person Horror-Survival at its finest. (PS3 REVIEW)

Summary: Now before I begin I want to make somethink clear. This game was made by the studio which is ran by the same guy who did RE 1-4, that means it is going to feel alot like RE 1-4, and I'm getting really tired of people saying it's trying to copy and paste The Last Of Us. The story is some what bland and hard to follow, until you start progressing through the game and fing side text that explains alot of the stuff going on, along with back story for characters.
Summary: Shinji Mikami fanboys, move along. This one ain't for you. I'm not going to give a plot synopsis, or a gameplay description, or anything else you haven't read about a dozen times. What I am going to focus on is why this version stinks. Bad. The first thing you are going to notice is that the graphics look like hammered dog s**t. All those beautiful graphics you saw in the demo? Not here.
Summary: Someone at the game developer or what have you has to release a FIX and QUICK for the BLACK BARS on the top and bottom of the screen. I can't see ANYTHING worth a darn, not the enemies, not the environment - nothing - and I have a HUGE TV! Who's idea was it to put those black bars in??? The PC version got a fix for this I hear. But for consoles (I have the PS3 version) they need to SEND OUT A MASS UPDATE. I'll raise my rating if this happens...
