    While I went into Amid Evil with high hopes, the reality was- it did NOT live up to my hype.
    I am a massive fan of old school games like Heretic, Hexen, Shadow Warrior, Duke 3d and everything I had heard and seen about this game compared it quite favorably to the above. Well, if Dusk is the modern day answer to Quake I certainly can not say that Amid Evil is the modern day equivalent to

Well, if Dusk is the modern day answer to Quake I certainly can not say that Amid Evil is the modern day equivalent to Hexen or any games in its trilogy.
    My biggest issues are the facts that you could take this game and its game play, reskin the weapons as guns and (apart from the starting axe) I would defy a video game player to be able to tell this was ever fantasy themed. It feels like Dusk with a different color pallet and brighter visuals (minus all the fun platforming and secrets).

    I CAN confidently say that this game has great and interesting enemy design. Each new enemy introduces new mechanics and uses. Discovering which weapons work best with which enemies is a joyful experience.

    Its certainly not a bad game, I might even go far as to call it a good game, at times. I can not, however, justify anything higher than a 7.

    Amid Evil is a new homage to 90’s FPS, but we think anyone can enjoy it thanks to its design, replayability and how fun it actually is.

    Fast and precise old-school shooter, sometimes not challenging enough and with redundant enemy waves, but also filled with imaginative locations and spacious levels.

    If you are a fan of classic shooters, you probably already tried Amid Evil, but even if you have the slightest passion for the FPS genre, you will no doubt enjoy this one.
