I am trying to get more and more people excited about Evil West as it is one of my most anticipated games of 2022! This game looks insane and as someone who loves the old West and loves horror, this game is like it is made just for me. We do not exactly have a ton of details about the game just yet, but I thought it would be neat to break down my thoughts on what we know so far and what this game could potentially become. It is going to be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series.

Save The West, Save America

What is really drawing me to Evil West is the story and the setting We play as an old cowboy type guy who is not your typical wild west cowboy.

He is one of the last of his kind, an agent that stands between humanity and vampires, vampires that want to take over the world and drain humanity dry. A new vampire threat is starting to arise and it is up to you, your guns, and your gantlet to save America!

Action Packed To The Max!

While it may have been the merger of horror and the wild west that initially grabbed my attention with Evil West. It was the amazing looking gameplay that really made my jaw drop. This is a 3rd personal action and adventure game. You have a ton of cool weapons that you can use, but what really caught my eye was this gauntlet type thing the cowboy was wearing. You can use different gadgets, learn new moves, get perks, upgrades, and so on as you progress through the game. It looks like it is going to be a riot to play through and they have said you can play this in single-player or side by side with a buddy which sounds like a lot of fun.

A Style I Like

If you go to the Evil West Steam page there is an image on there of the main character standing in front of a burning wild west style church, holding a cool looking shotgun and a bunch of awesome looking vampires about to come at him. That right there is what I am talking about my friends! This game looks incredible and I just love this style and it reminds me very much of an old first-person shooter that was released on the PS2 called Darkwatch, add to this a little bit of Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare and you have a game that could honestly not look any cooler in my opinion.

I know that we have only had a little bit of information shared by the studio so far. However, I really could not be any more excited already for what Evil West is offering. This game just ticks all of the boxes for me and it looks like it could be one of the most fun games released in 2022.

I know it does not have a release date yet, but 2022 is stacked with massive game releases so perhaps they are trying to find the perfect release window for it so it does not end up lost in the shuffle. So far, not too many people are talking about this one, but I really do hope that changes once they release the next batch of information.

Pros:

  • The setting could not be any cooler
  • I love the whole vampires in the west thing it has going on
  • It is cool how the weapons have a bit of “technology” about them
  • You can also play this with a friend in co-op

Cons:

  • I am worried it will get lost amongst all the huge AAA releases in 2022
  • There is not even a hint of when this game will be released

Game Reviews

Evil West combines the Wild West and vampire themes, resulting in a unique and unexpectedly compelling experience. You play as Jesse Rentier, a vampire hunter who must protect humanity from a deadly threat of the bloodsucking variety. Needless to say, things are going to get violent.

Featuring an eclectic set of weapons and abilities, Evil West feels like a truly unique attempt at doing something no one has done before. If you thought mixing God of War and Red Dead Redemption together was impossible, then you certainly need to take a look at what the good people over at Flying Wild Hog have achieved with this game.

Steel Cowboy

The hero of this story, Jesse Rentier, is a no-nonsense cowboy with a burning hatred for vampires. He also has access to a formidable armory of some of the craziest sci-fi weapons you've ever seen in a video game. This vampire hunter has more than stakes to kill his prey – and it shows.

With OP weapons like the Rentier gauntlet at his disposal, playing through the game is a blast, if a bit on the slow side. Don't expect the same fast-paced combat you'd see in most character action games in this one: Evil West's combat is slow and methodical – clunky, even. Still, if you can deal with a bit of mindless combat and unresponsive controls, you'll have no issue getting into Evil West's groove.

Story for the Ages

I bet you weren't expecting the plot in a game like Evil West to be one of the best parts of the experience, right? Well, that's mostly because it isn't – at least, not always. Though Jesse Rentier is an amazing character, some moments in the story feel a bit rushed, as if the developers themselves want the game to end as quickly as possible.

Still, the game's lore and overall themes are all properly executed. I don't think this is the kind of game that spawns a legion of dedicated fans who obsess over every minute aspect of the world's lore – but it doesn't try to be.

There's a refreshing forwardness to Evil West. This is a game that knows its target audience well, and as such, it delivers exactly in the areas that players who love this type of game will appreciate.

Speedrunning Techniques

With so many new games to play, some of the longer gaming experiences are increasingly feeling like a chore to go through. Not everyone has the patience or the time to sit through a 100+ hours game, and Evil West understands that.

At around 12 hours, the plot of the game feels concise and to the point. The game rarely pads its runtime with unnecessary features or other deviations, making the whole experience feel much more focused as a result. However, those looking for a "richer" gaming experience might prefer to keep playing Red Dead Redemption for their Wild West fix.

Evil West delivers an entertaining beat 'em up experience that's just perfect for light gaming sessions and those looking for a simple action title.

Pros

  • Great art style and character designs
  • Challenging combat system
  • Good narrative that keeps you entertained all the way through

Cons

  • Frustrating level design
  • Clunky controls
  • Enemies lack some variety
