I know the marketing has been very back and forth with both Alien Isolation and The Evil Within... now that Alien isn't such a big deal as everyone thought it was going to be, I think it's critical now for the "Survival Horror genre" in general that "The Evil Within" does well... I'm worried, because if it DOESN'T, then it will be a set viewpoint for all publishers and developers that, "true horror" just doesn't sell well. Because everyone will be saying, "Look at these two games... they both came out next to each other, and they both blew chunks.
I really hope that's not what happens and that Shinji pulls through with this game, making it a successful horror.
I love horror... but if too many games that come out in the genre KEEP getting bad scores... the industry will notice.
Shinji.... here's hoping that this does well.

Anyway, i got Alien Isolation pre-ordered for the simple fact that is the ONLY Alien game where the Xenomorph behaves like it's supposed to, that alone it's a buy for me. I want it to succeed and i think it's going to. Hopefully, next Alien games would take example from this one. The ING review clearly comes from a person who has a WIDE perspective of genres in games, he most likely enjoys games that make him feel comfy. The guy says it's frustrating?, that's actually good!, i don't wanna walk around like i'm going to shop in the mall. Plus, that's the work of a reviewer....Say good things first, then talk shit....Job done....paycheck.... xD

Gamereactor Review in a nutshell:
Aesthetics to die for, well-made and dynamic monster intelligence, fantastic pace, cruel varied, surprisingly wholesome campaign, incredibly dense atmosphere, free exploration
Abrupt end, unilateral human confrontations

I say that because people weigh the same good and bad aspects of a game differently when deciding what number to slap on the overall game.
If I'm going to read a review for a game at all, I read a few of them and look for the same (or similar) positive and negative aspects each review talks about. If multiple reviews pick out the same good and bad aspects of the game, then you can probably safely say that the game has a good story, or gameplay, or whatever the good or bad thing is. That's how I read reviews anyway...
