When The Evil Within was announced, it sent shivers of delight and horror through the gaming community in roughly equal measures. Developed by Tango Gameworks, the game marks the return to survival horror by acclaimed Resident Evil creator Shinjo Mikami. Expect chills, nightmares and gore by the bucketload...

The game revolves around detective Sebastian Castellanos, a man investigating a string of grizzly murders. As you'd expect from the creator of Resident Evil, though, things don't stop at gory slayings and things quickly descend into horrible supernatural nastiness.

Because, oh yes, there is PLENTY of horribleness. Multi-armed spider lady things? We got 'em. And they are utterly nightmarish. The Evil Within certainly reeks of atmosphere and doesn't fall back on a splatter-fest, but it's not shy about its monsters, either.

Like early Resi games, fighting will for the most part be a last resort. You don't want to be fighting these things if you can avoid it. Expect a lot of creeping around and running away, keeping a jealous guard of the scant resources you've scavenged from your environment.

The Evil Within, for all its modern polish, is a return to the survival horror genre's roots from one of the genre's true masters.
