Despite all the tomfoolery going on in the gaming industry at the moment, with Doritos and Mountain Dew bloggers posing as game journalists while alienating and attacking their own audience, there’s still gaming news to cover. One of the more recent releases that’s sort of been skipped over as of late is The Evil Within, the latest action-survival game from the grandfather of horror-survival titles, Shinji Mikami.
The game is about a detective who ends up investigating some strange happenings on some creepy property. Quite naturally there’s monsters, mutilators, man-eaters and male-slaughterers. It’s a third-person shooter with a strong hint of fight-or-flight style encounters, as players are encouraged to think about how they engage with the enemy.
