In the end, The Evil Within was a game that reeked of needing a better overall design philosophy and suffered because it didn’t. There’s fun to have here, but it will start to wear on you as you play the game. It’s a good game to try to rent or borrow from a friend, but in the end, it’s a title that didn’t live up to expectations, and is another disappointment in the “horror” genre. There’s some good elements to build off here though for future titles, the question will be if future iterations will be as muddled as this one was.

Between a gorefest that's thoroughly engrossing, amazing feelings of triumph created by the imposing difficulty, and a plot that gets to the core of some very unsettling themes, The Evil Within brings enough to the table that it deserves a taste. Just don't ask where this dish came from. You don't want to know.Despite letting some of its most compelling aspects die off, The Evil Within is still worth a shot for bringing some unique ideas in the first place, and giving us a new way to think about survival horror.

If not for the unfortunate frustrating points, which really take you out of the bleak atmosphere, I would say this would set the bar for horror excellence. Unfortunately, these small drawbacks will cause you to frequently put the game down, and that simply doesn’t mesh with a horror tone.
