Many of the attempts at generating fright in The Evil Within just feel… clunky. Doubtful? Just watch a comprehensive breakdown of the survival horror game's missteps. Be careful not to step in any blood.

The same fellow who's catalogued the wrongness in DmC and Remember Me comes back to judge Shinji Mikami's latest creation. Many of Dartigan's complaints mirror the problems I had with the game, in that it throws a ton of tropes at you in the hopes that one of them will make you skin crawl.
