Evil Below is a first-person game about exploration and slight horror elements. You play a mum who wakes up in a strange place after a car crash with your son missing. It’s all played in the first person is fine but unfortunately, they don’t have any comfort or field-of-view slider options so you land up getting motion sickness or at least a headache. The combat is very swishy and with that, the camera goes full boat in a storm so prepare yourself. I was enjoying the game to be honest as it’s an open world and you have no pressure to find the way forward and instead can concentrate on exploring and finding the many weapons and upgrades hidden within the lands. I found cool new areas and little houses hidden within the fog. Enemies are not that fantastic or unique, They are meant to help bring the horror but you hear them from a mile off and with the camera swaying I always try to avoid conflict or I fight with my eyes closed. Overall Evil Below has a lot of promise but they just made a few rookie mistakes when making games in the first person. Evil Below, it is alright until it made me feel rough.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
