I'm replaying it at the moment and I'm struck once again by how excellent it is.
I put off buying it when it came out cos a lot of people said it was frustrating and just not that good. I'm really glad I finally decided to give it a chance though; it strikes a really great balance between impactful action and unsettling horror, and to me feels like a better successor to RE4 than RE5 or 6.
Sure its not perfect; the story's nothing special, but I really feel like outside of RE4 its one of the best examples of how to blend action and horror effectively.
With a metacritic in the 60s-70s, it's also a prime example of why I stopped listening so much to reviewers when choosing my purchases.
Anyone else really enjoy this one?
The Evil Within has a 75 Metscore (version with most reviews) that's just short of great.
