This Xbox 360 games has technical issues, but it's still scary.

Quick question critic?

But I have noticed you chose the Xbox 360 version to review when you could have reviewed it on the PS4/Xbox One which the game was developed with 8th Gen in mind alongside last Gen Xbox 360/PS3. And from what I heard the PS4/Xbox One versions are notably better then last gen versions. So my advice is to maybe some day track down and review the PS4/Xbox One editions to see if the game fairs better their critic?

Do you really think I'm interested in playing this game on another platform? No thank you!
At least it was cheap...

I've watched the whole playthrough online - youtubers seem to have no major issues with the game. Also they played it on a PS4...

But some people say that the PS4/Xbox One versions have less problems then the PS3/Xbox 360 editions, that is what I have been told?

Also, you did review the same games on different platforms every now and then, example you reviewed Super Smash Bros. 2014 aka Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. And both versions got different review scores because of this, so the same thing may be said about The Evil Within case?

Weird that it has a required install on the 360. There aren't all that many games that do. I initially thought I was reading an Xbox One review.

I really enjoyed this game once I put some time into it, but it definitely rubbed me the wrong way the first time around. Agreed that the next-gen versions are way better, but it's fundamentally the same game. If you like Ressie 4 and are looking for something similar, give this one a go. If you don't like games that are openly unfair at times/like to blindside you for an added scare factor, then Evil Within isn't for you.

For the right type of gamer, I'd bump the score up to a B. There really isn't much else this hardcore one on the market (Dark Souls comes to mind), and that's refreshing.

I have it on xbox 1. Apart from the frame rate issues it sounds like the same game. It has some great ideas but feels like a ps1 game. It is unforgiving and nasty in parts. I would probably give it a c plus.
