The Evil Within is a third-person horror game that pits players against a series of terrors that force them to consider whether fighting or fleeing is the best course of action. The game follows Seb Castellanos, a veteran police detective who starts off investigating a horrible murder at a mental hospital. Things soon go awry after a mysterious, scarred man in a white hood kills his colleagues in front of him. After being knocked unconscious, Seb awakens in a nightmare version of his city and struggles to find the man responsible for killing his fellow officers, discovering an increasingly disconcerting story as he goes.

Players can use traditional weapons as well as unique ones like the Agony Crossbow, which shoots elemental bolts that are capable of doing significant damage to the game’s supernatural enemies. The Evil Within received positive reviews overall, with critics enjoying the gameplay and tension but finding the characters a bit on the bland side. The game was the third best-selling game of October 2014. A variety of weapons and upgrades throughout The Evil Within keep the single-player campaign feeling fresh, and the horror atmosphere keeps gamers’ palms sweating and their hair standing on end from start to finish.
