This game was a surprise


Evil West is a game that I had been looking at for a while and waiting for it to come down in price, so when I saw it in the Playstation store for about 30% off, I figured it would be the best time to snatch this game up.

Evil West is a pretty interesting game. It was described as a Souls style game with a mixture of Western style with vampires. It is a pretty cool concept and I wasn't sure how it would play out, but so far I am having a blast.

The game is set in the Old West in America around the timeframe of Abe Lincoln. Your character seems to be a well known vampire hunter and you are trying to keep them from taking over. It is still pretty early in my time playing and the plot is a bit weird, so I don't really have a clue what is going on other than to kill bad guys.

From some of the reviews I have read about the game, most people don't care much for the story and the cutscenes are pretty cheesy. The combat is where this game shines. It is a ton of fun punching the shit out of the monsters and using the different guns.

You have some gauntlet thing on your arm that can electrocute things and helps you punch harder. One thing that I really like about the combat is that you are constantly moving around so that you do not become overwhelmed with the hordes of enemies. It is a really fun combat system that keeps the pace going.

The enemies that I have seen are pretty cool looking. There doesn't seem to be a big variety of enemies in the game, but that doesn't seem to matter too much because the combat is a ton of fun.

The game is only about 10-15 hours long, which is nice because I need a break from the longer games. I downloaded The Witcher 3 recently because of the next gen update and I am looking forward to playing it, but I have seen that it is an extremely long game and has hundreds of hours of gameplay.

I am hoping to play a few shorter games like Evil West before I decide if I am going to play The Witcher or not. Hogwart's Legacy is coming out soon, and I am stoked for that game. I am a huge Harry Potter nerd and I have been excited for that game since I heard about it.

So far this game is a lot of fun. There are some really cool boss fights that remind me of some of the bosses in Dark Souls. The game isn't as difficult as the Souls series, but it can be pretty difficult if you aren't using the different weapons and stuff correctly.

This game has gotten some great reviews and it was a complete surprise at how fun it is. It is nice to see some of the smaller development teams pumping out great games like this when the bigger companies have just been churning out a lot of disappointing games. If you have a PS5 or Xbox, I highly recommend this one. Snag it while the game is on sale. I wouldn't be surprised if the game is free on Game Pass or Playstation Plus soon too. It is a game that I think a lot of people will enjoy.


I’ve really been wanting to play this one. I’m waiting for it to get under $30 though since it’s so short. The combat reminds me of God of War a bit. Plus I love vampires and cowboys.

I wouldn't be surprised if this one hits PlayStation Plus in a couple months. It really is a fun game.

I thought the same, at least on Extra maybe.

when I read it that it this is set in a time with Abe Lincoln, I remember the movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 2012, lol.

gonna look up the game trailer. 😆

It’s been a lot of fun so far. I played it for a few more hours this morning before I had to get some work done.

This game looks great and it sounds better after I read this post. That gauntlet thing from that picture looks dope. So, is this game available only for console like ps or xbox?

I'll see if I can play it in my PC so that I can give it a try as well.

It's on PC as well. It's a really great game. Enjoy it if you do get it.

Then I should definitely try this out. Thanks for your confirmation.

Despite not being able to have a powerful PC, I never give me bad life for that, quite the opposite, sometimes I'm content with just watching, reading or watching some gameplay also nourishes my heart of nerf gamer hahahaha.
From the way you describe the game I can tell that you enjoyed it a lot and that it was worth every dollar you used to buy it, the sharpness in the screenshots are simply great, you did very good shots there.

I will look for some gameplay on "Evil West", I'm sure I will enjoy watching it. About what you comment about "The Witcher 3" I wish you luck with that, I have a close friend who has gotten to play some of its sequels, but he himself has told me that he gave up half way through, it's a pretty long game. It has been a pleasure to visit your content, enjoy reading it, see you soon!

I've been enjoying it so far. Hopefully one day you can get a more powerful pc to be able to do whatever you want with it.

Actually, it is a goal I have for the future, for the moment I have to work very hard to achieve it.... I am always positive, I know that I will achieve it, thanks for the comment. May you and your family have a Merry Christmas.

I'm surprised to read this about this game. Since I saw it I thought it was the classic generic shooter game with nothing to highlight, although it is true that I had not made the effort to look at some gameplay either 😅. Visually it looks amazing.

It's a pretty dope game so far. The combat is a ton of fun.

The game looks simply amazing, man. I love a game that reflects the atmosphere it's trying to convey, a lot of games don't do that very well.

I'm pretty excited about Hogwarts Legacy too. My girlfriend is a Harry Potter fan and I love the series, although not as much as she does. I don't know if my computer is good enough to play the game, and it's very expensive. With a good discount I can buy this game and hopefully my girlfriend and I can play it.

It was described as a Souls style game with a mixture of Western style with vampires

It is indeed an interesting concept. I love western and vampires, with that being said, if I got some money to spare I am going to try this one out.
