Having not played The Evil Within yet, I can't really give a vote here. Alien: Isolation does a damn good job of it, though

Alien Isolation is so immersive, and as a pretty hard ALIEN fan I must say its the best  thing since the movies to happen to the franchise. Haven't picked up TEW but plan to once finishing Isolation.

Too bad there is not a neither option. After playing both, having beat Alien Isolation with Evil Within only a few hours in, I so far feel let down. At first I enjoyed the idea of Alien Isolation but found far too many things wrong with the game. The game was too long. When you think it ends, it keeps going. After five spots I thought the game would end, the actual ending felt hollow. 

 

Sadly the same is said for Evil Within. Two games both trying to capture something from the past and both failing in multiple ways. They do both look excellent, the art direction is amazing, the ambiance of both games really pull out the terror, but something is missing. I am hoping that will change in Evil Within as I get deeper into the game, I just feel at the moment, both of these games are better off at a discounted price.

So you dislike Isolation because it's too long? What!? That's what an amazing game should do, when you think it's ending, it keeps giving you more for your entertainment. If that's not your cup of tea then maybe Isolation is not a game for you but there is no doubt that Isolation is an amazing Survival Horror game and it did it right.

Definitely Alien Isolation. It manages to scare the crap out of me and make me jumpy, and it has an excellent atmosphere based on the Alien movie.

Evil Within is too weird that it takes away the scare factor, but it's still a good game. I do manage to get a scare out of it thought. There is one enemy in the game that scares the living shit out of me, and defusing bombs are really scary because one false move and you're dead.

Evil Within is too weird that it takes away the scare factor, but it's still a good game. At least judging from what I see in the game playthroughs. I'm getting it primarily because I want to shoot zombies again.

The story is soo fucking confusing until half way or more for you to even understand what the hell is happening. But honestly, the Japanese version of the game's title kinda spoils it as it's called "Psycho Break". So basically the game is telling you, WITH JUST THE NAME, that the main character having a Psychological Breakdown and consciously he doesn't know it yet.

I voted Evil within.

Even though I'm a massive fan of the Aliens franchize like most of the AJSA (Hoorah)

I still prefer The Evil Within over Aliens.... I have mentioned this countless amounts of times and I said it was eventually going to affect the way I look at horror games... Stop making it impossible to defend myself. It makes it really REALLY boring.

I don't get scared by "scary" games and the fact they have made it so you can not defend yourself and you spend 90% of the game running from something just makes it boring...

As much as The Evil Within has some SERIOUS bugs in it (Trust me, I know) there is still a way to defend myself. That just makes the game alot more interesting to me due to the fact I ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING RATHER THAN JUST RUNNING!!!

That was actually my prediction of the story. My guess is it's all in his head after he's injected with a drug that the main villain give him in the beginning of the game. But this is a japanese game, so I will expect some crazy shit to happen later. I watched DSP's playthrough of the game till chapter 2, but I want to play the game so I stop there.

You must not have gotten very far into Alien Isolation. You can totally defend yourself.

Played the Evil Within... 3/10

Horrible combat/view. Black bars that show on screen. AI dumb as shit. Lastly NOT SCARY!

I really wanted to like this game however... Just could not be done.

I rented The Evil Within from Game Fly. It went back before it was finished. Nothing to do with combat or letter box, just story. The game's story gave me little reason to care about anything. It just kept warping me around to different locations. It's like "I'm walking through the woods. Oh, now I'm back at the asylum. Oh, now I'm in a different part of the asylum. Oh, now I'm at a church". I stopped caring.
