Doesn't keeping old good "Resident Evil" mechanics, but against that fact, bringing whole new horror atmosphere, with it's really great details and movie style!..

"The Evil Within" is maybe more out of gaming part than first "Resident" games, but by that, it's positive, what can be also just for watch, like an movie with popcorn in cinema!

Hard bosses, yes there are many of them - starting in Chapter 5 I think

I wanted to say the game was too hard but lately I realised, this game was meant to be hard for player, I died 71 times to finish the game, but mostly bosses killed me, reason is, that it takes you time to learn how to defeat each boss, bcs they are all different and specific, so no
NO MINUSES FOR THIS GAME

This needs some kind of tagline... hmm Outlast but not a survival horror (theres one section where you hide and sneak past then a few instances where you need to hide a locker) the rest is Resident Evil 4 styled shooter, but not really a horror shooter because the controls are to sluggish to do that well, and all mixed up with a below average story set and a bunch of clichè Silent Hill/Hostel-style gore/monsters, and it felt like it was trying too hard to be "hardcore horror" ie combining survival and action-horror but failing to deliver any sentiment of that. Giving us perhaps the most disjointed story I've seen, one of the worst console ports I've played getting locked in at 30FPS, controls do not allow you to do anything easily, its all so god damn clunky you can't pick anything up easily, you can interact with the environment without struggling to highlight it and you can't aim without the entire screen zooming into to this 50 degree angle, terrible Ai, cut scenes every 5-15 minutes breaking immersion, not able to save when you want and graphically its on par with a Xbox 360 game... when the 360 was first released.
The biggest disappointment since Duke Nukem Forever because I thought this was going to be the next big horror title. But really its just a triple A game pretending to be like Outlast superficially whilst trying hard at pretending to be Resident Evil 4.

Horror outside of Indie has really gone downhill, I can't see the triple A industry getting any semblance credibility. No professional standard for releasing on the PC. And obviously the main critics are saying nothing but nice things and obviously pre-orders are trying to pull you in based on the game being made by a 'industry veteran' and all this pre-order bonuses ********.

Talentless hacks trying to sell us into the horror craze. Well guess what.. you need actual talent to make a good horror game.
