New asymmetrical online multiplayer Evil Dead The Game was finally released on May 13, 2022 at midnight, local time. If you didn’t have the huge movie franchise adaptation on pre-order long ago, you might still be wondering whether Evil Dead The Game is worth your time.
Perhaps you’re a fan of the film franchise and aren’t sure if a game adaptation is for you? Or you are a fan of the horror game genre but aren’t familiar with the film? Or just generally one the fence about giving Evil Dead The Game a go? Well, that’s where reviews and scores come in, and the metacritic Evil Dead The Game score can help you decide.
With metacritic delaying reviews until Saturday, May 14, 2022, to ensure people had had sufficient hands-on time with the game, you can reset assured that you should be getting a decently honest set of reviews to help you make your decision in picking up the game.
The game, as with all games on metacritic, is split into platforms, so there are different scores for PS5, Xbox Series X and PC. Having said that, they’re currently sitting pretty much in the same place, with the consoles just one point apart, and PC a little higher up the rankings.
Evil Dead metacritic score as of May 19, 2022
As you can see from the above scores, Evil Dead: The Game is up there, but it’s not among the best of the best. And, to be completely honest, we can see why. As you’ll be able to read more of in our full review, the game is an excellent homage to the horror-comedy classic, and an incredible step forward in the asymmetrical horror genre, but doesn’t feel like it has a lot of longevity, with pretty repetitive gameplay.
What is Evil Dead The Game?
In short, Evil Dead: The Game is an asymmetrical horror unlike any you’ve played before. Think Dead by Daylight, Friday the 13th The Game and Predator Hunting Grounds – and then throw everything you think you know about the genre out the window.
While, at its essence, Evil Dead The Game does pit a group of four survivors against one Kandarian demon player, there’s so much more to it than that. There’s crafting and upgrading, ranged weapons, there’s AI Deadites, drivable vehicles… and, of course, there are possessed trees.
