Midnights In The Lab couldn’t quite get a grip on Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks’ The Evil Within in a single session. While the opening chapters were a borderline boring slog, there kept being enough hints of quality to leave us interested. As we examine further will there actually be something of value in this package or will David, Alex and Matt settle that this was a waste of time?
The Evil Within is Shinji Mikami’s, director of Resident Evil 4, venture back into the horror genre. As Detective Sebastian Castellanos you are thrown into a strange world while investigating a mass murder at a hospital. Are these strange locales you explore and perversions of nature you fight plaguing your city or all they all the work of your troubled mind?
