The Evil Within screenshots show more monstrous beasts

Tom Senior


I've had to stop myself from counting the horror clichés in The Evil Within trailers, as it was putting me off a survival horror game that ought to have much to recommend it. It's from Shinji Mikami, who made Resident Evil and, in a quite unrelated genre occupied only by itself, God Hand. But then he also worked on Dino Crisis. But then he also worked on the excellent Vanquish and Killer 7. I am so confused. Will these new Evil Within screenshots clarify matters? The main with a box for a head suggests "no".

In-game footage suggests a cross between Silent Hill and Resident Evil 4, but with a bit more sneaking. That is a fine combination, all told. It's due out in August.
