I'll play the game and see for myself whether it's "RE4 Reborn" or something else.


If it really was better than RE4 people would be going crazy for it. We wouldn't hear the end of it. Reviews would all be 9s and 10s. That is clearly not happening. Of course some people will like it more than RE4 but it won't be the general consensus. When I say it is not better than RE4 I don't mean it as a direct comparison as much as I mean it being that level of loved and respected as a monumental game that will be talked about as one of the greatest games of all time.

Well, it's impossible for TEW to have a fraction of the impact that RE4 had when it launched, that game's innovations were revolutionary and it was a technical marvel. While TEW doesn't seem to be doing anything new, and it's just decent on technical level. (Those animations are nasty, though).

TEW might end up better than RE4 game design-wise, but I don't think it will review as well, simply because it lacks the same impact RE4 had.



Well put.

for me this already beats RE4 x 10. I might get burnt at the cross for this lol but RE4 doesnt come into my top 5 of best RE games for various reasons. Nothing wrong with it, I just prefer other games in the series more

Same.. I don't know what people have with RE4.. I personally did not enjoy it. However I LOVED Resident Evil 1 and 2, as well as Code Veronica.

RE4 was so succesfull couse it was genre defining/ Third Person Over the Shoulder and a really cool atmosphere, Bosses, enemies and characters. RE4 is one of the best games created but i also agree that the game doesnt feel like a classic Resident Evil Game. Also the destruction of the series.

I have exactly the same opinion and noobs comparing TEW with it and thats awful, because TEW will be always better for survival horror fans

RE should be survival horror game with a dark atmoshere like RE 1 or 2. Not action game, it may be good game for Cod players, but not for survival horror fans.

Everyone needs to understand that The Evil Within was made by a survival horror guru for survival horror fans. Everybody that has been visiting this forum obsessing over the past couple weeks, myself included, will without a doubt love this game. Mikami probably put in all the ideas he had for the original versions of RE4 before it was scrapped and became what it is today. I think the casual gamers will just see this game as solid, challenging, and fun, but we will see it as the next survival horror game to play the absolute shit out of.

I am so glad i don't read reviews. I have got about, well just over halfway through (chapter9) and so far its the best Survial Horror game I have played. Its old school. It hard as hell, but fun at the same time. I died over 20x on a enemy (I won't say which, for spoiler reasons) but.. I just ended up laughing at myself. I then looked back into some notes I picked up and it just thought "... well theres no harm in trying.." it was a crazy idea!! but it friggin worked. It;s stuff like that which you don't get anymore, Looking back on notes, or just thinking back to what was send.Games like this.. have to be paced. Its no action, run in shooting. It doesn't work unless you play it on easy, and get lucky with ammo.
This game is just... WOW!

Well, a hater at IGNorat gave it a favorable review! Didn't understand the story though, but hey- pretty good for someone that didn't like the game at first :)
