Quotes

Sebastian Castellanos: You fought it off three times now, Joseph. You're learning to stop it.
Joseph Oda: You're not listening. I'm not worried about stopping it Seb, I'm worried about not wanting to stop it. Some part of me wants to turn. I don't know why and I can"t reason it away... it's deeper than that. It's like instinct... and it's getting stronger.

Another great Japanese game!
30 June 2017 | by hakobyanhakob81See all my reviews

Evil Within is in a way similar to Souls experience. Here too you will need to level up and take your time, to carefully explore everything, looking for items and ammo, and you need to be prepared for the boss fights. Just like in Silent Hill, you shouldn't waste your ammo on regular foes, and to enjoy it, you need to know how to play it the right way. Otherwise, you'll hate this game, finding it extremely hard, however, once you have figured out how to get the most out of it, it's so much fun, addictive and rewarding. The game masterfully combines the elements of Resident Evil, Silent Hill and my top favorite Dark Souls. It certainly is challenging but nowhere as hard as Dark Souls, and also has an appropriate auto-save system apart from the manual save. Evil Within provides a rich, long and brilliantly thought-out game play. It's absolutely top-notch. The level design/the atmosphere is amazing, the voice acting and maps are superb, and the plot is so fast paced you simply won't get tired playing. If you like games that require thinking and don't mind somewhat hard games, then get this masterpiece. Barely having beaten it, I bought all 3 DLCs since I had no doubt they will be terrific. A very nice addition to my 'Japan rocks' list and PS4 library. I just hope Evil Within 2 will be this great. Now it's one of my top anticipated games.
