The Evil Within is coming and it’s bringing nightmare fuel. I should get to play the game soon, and I’m worried that in my quest to review it I’ll start waking up at night, screaming. Here are some of the things that are going to terrify you when you delve into the bizarre world of The Evil Within.
I’m so glad to learn that stealth will be such a viable option – that’s definitely going to be my preferred way of playing. Sneak around, kill each haunted one at a time and then run like a terrified Forest Gump the rest of the time. That’s a feasible plan, right?
Thus far, the trailers are scaring me more than my previous hands on time with the game. I’m really hoping that the game’s fear factor is way higher than it was at E3 – if so, I think it could be an awesome game, reminiscent of classic Resident Evil games. With plenty of horrifying puzzles to add to the scare factor, the game is sounding like it’s right up my alley, unless it scares me so much that I can’t even bear to open my eyes.
Are you happy to see the innovations in horror games? Survival horror was becoming an indie-only genre, and it’s great to see two titles out this month in time for Halloween that might get your heart pounding and your palms sweating. Is this a tall glass of nope for you, or will you be joining me in using this to cause high blood pressure?
