The Evil Within – Cinematic Lies

evil within

Is this a sick joke on PC gamers? The game looks and performs horribly. It’s just terribly given it uses the same Engine as Wolfenstein: TNO.

Which to be fair looks like something Pablo Picasso envisioned while on drugs and having night terrors. The art…
