Shinji Mikami's latest take on survival horror looks like an intense affair full of blood and guts. But it also occasionally has some bugs — many of which make the game way more hilarious than it intends to be.
Here are some of our favourite picks of glitches or goofy moments that people around the web have found while playing The Evil Within. They may not be common, but they're definitely pretty great. Take the enemy captured above by BakkinBakkingamu, for example. Aww, he can't handle a fence!
Some more glitches and funny moments:
True horror are stairs that never end, as Lukemoon finds out in this clip. While it's a small moment, it sets the stage for the next glitch.
Imagine coming across this chainsaw guy, as Hypnox Gaming does. You get frantic. You run away, you try to take some shots at him — anything to keep yourself alive. And suddenly...he just climbs invisible stairs and goes under the stage? Uhhhh.
Looks like The Evil Within might have some issues with stairs, eh?
Here's a really strange one. Maximilien Orban gets stuck at a certain point in the game — and sure, that's a thing that happens in games sometimes. No biggie. What makes this funny is that while the protagonist, Sebastian Castellanos, stays in place, his hair and his lamp do not. Err?
Fusing with a boss
There's nothing quite like the high of finally beating a boss and thinking, thank god it's over. In this case, however, the death of the boss is only the beginning for QueenRoadKillCandy, as the game bizarrely decides to fuse him with the body of the creature. Admittedly, while this makes me laugh, I'd probably be pretty pissed if it happened to me!
Ryan Acheson finds that in The Evil Within, nurse's legs don't quite work the same way they do in our world.
You spin me right round
Why stay dead when you can spin around? Kingdom of Nerdum does manage to get rid of the body, but only after burning it. Of course.
Walking into walls
The keeper is a pretty terrifying enemy... that is, when he works the way he's supposed to. I wouldn't feel too bad for Captain Fluff-san though, this means he can kill boxhead pretty easily. Considering the relentless nature of The Evil Within, that's not such a bad thing.
