Shinji Mikami, the man who directed the first Resident Evil, directed this nightmare on disc. Living up to its title, this action-paced horror game takes you through one of the more twisted realities you've seen in a game, where the scene of a mass murder turns into you running for your life from chainsaw-wielding foes, traps, and an assortment of demented demons. It's a gorgeous game, taking full liberties with the bent reality that persists throughout the game's chapters. You truly feel like you've been thrust into the pits of hell and are fighting tooth-and-nail to escape. The story may not have satisfied everyone, but there's so much that's great about this game, you're guaranteed to pick it up on multiple occasions, especially when you want the soul sucked out of you via your TV screen.
