I wonder how Gamespot will review this game. I'm curious, because they're known for being buttholes.

Holy mother of god, I'm loving all the good reviews this is getting, it's amazing! I so can't wait to get this game.

Especially surprised with IGN's 8.7, they never give reviews that high, after what they gave Aliens I was expecting the worst.

Here is what we got so far.

Polygon (6.5): http://www.polygon.com/2014/10/14/68...w-xbox-one-PS4

CNET (mostly positive): http://www.cnet.com/products/the-evil-within/

Joystiq (2.5/5): http://www.joystiq.com/2014/10/14/th...view-keep-out/

Escapist (3/5): http://www.escapistmagazine.com/arti...-Within-Review

IGN (8.7): http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/10/...-within-review

Game Informer (9): http://www.gameinformer.com/games/th...-insanity.aspx

GameTrailers (9): http://www.gametrailers.com/reviews/...-within-review

The bad reviews basically say it is too hard with too much trial and error. The game does not explain concepts well and gets frustrating.

The good reviews say it is amazing and a great successor to RE4.

Bethesda did not give copies to certain sites, GS is one of them.

game too hard? awesome lol sites and magazines should have some kind of strict reviewing guidelines that reviewers have to follow. a game getting marked down for being difficult is pathetic.

So far i am loving it Survival horror is back baby!! Its very challenging, ammo is scarce like old RE games, and so far the story is pretty twsited O.o IMO this is already better than RE4 The evil within makes that game look like a childs game.
