A spiritual successor of sorts to the classic FPS Hexen, Amid Evil proves that old-school can feel new again. Currently available to play via Steam Early Access, it's a masterclass in classic design. And well, party like it's 1999 fun.
On top of the wonderful controls, great level design, and fun action, there’s also a sense of variety that permeates throughout Amid Evil. Which elevates the overall experience into what just might be the surprise, sleeper hit of the year. No two levels feel the same, let alone and of the three different episodes currently playable. Of a planned seven in total. Strategies and enemy placement and level progression switches and changes without ever growing stale.
In the end Amid Evil reminds us that the concept of a single-player campaign in a first-person shooter has narrowed over the years. And sure, there was a time when shooters were deploying increasingly complex levels with outlandish weapons and boss fights one after another. But that time has come and gone. And with that particular dust more than settled, Amid Evil, like the blast from the past that it is, is here to provide a fun, memorable, and sublime old school shooter.
