The Master of Survival Horror Returns for One Last Time:
Revealed in 2012 as “Project Zwei,” The Evil Within is a survival horror game with high expectations: as the alluded final directorial work of Shinji Mikami – the master of Survivial Horror and the creator of the Resident Evil series, this new title encapsulates the desire of Mikami Sensei's mission in reviving the survival horror genre.
True Deliberate Horror:
Taking a steep detour away from the current “dramatic horror” approach of it's contemporaries – ie games that feature horror elements overshadowed by gratuitous action sequences, The Evil Within carries it's pedigree with a careful take on pacing, suspense, and a sense of helplessness surrounded by mystery. Follow the unfortunate circumstances of Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partner who find themselves in a world of madness; only by facing their fears can they defeat the powerful dark forces that threaten their survival and sanity.
It's a Trap:
To ensure that the feeling of the genre permeates with gameplay, players, in lieu actual weapons, can use a multitude of traps back against the grotesque foes who set them; suspense takes a whole new aspect as the combination of imagination and resourcefulness under duress brings survival to a harrowing level.
