A shining beacon of AA glory, Evil West offers up some dumb co-op fun with a side serving of jank.
This is a really solid 3rd person action game that sees you beating the ever-living shit outta vampire-demons in an alternate history wild west. The story is pretty much exclusively told through pre-rendered cutscenes, which are surprisingly well crafted, with some decent imagery throughout. The actual narrative itself is the definition of forgettable but it has enough crazy bullshit going on to mostly hold my attention.
Structurally, its a very 7th gen affair of linear combat arenas, with small "puzzles" in between. The puzzles themselves are often more of a nuisance than anything else, serving only to artificially break up the pacing by having you waste time hitting a switch or two. I really think the game could have just done without them, but thankfully even with their inclusion, the game still does a good job of constantly throwing you into the action, which mostly shines.
Mechanically, its relatively simple, but theres enough variety in the abilities to keep things fresh, and cranking the difficulty can actually offer a really sizable challenge. There's also a decent variety of enemies, though the game does drag a bit in the middle and a few sections feel like they over-use the same enemies and probably could have been scrapped to tighten up the pacing. Still, the majority of it is really fast, fluid, and fun, with one boss fight in particular that punches well above its weight.
Unfortunately, like I said in the opening, this game comes with some jank. Some stuff is pretty minor like getting randomly launched into the air mid fight (theres no fall damage so honestly this is just kinda funny) but sometimes its a lot worse, like your co-op partner losing function on half of their abilities which is, yeah, not fucking good at all. There's also a co-op bug on one mission where if either of you open your menu the game will freeze and the connection will be lost. No idea how this even happens, but its also kinda wild how this still hasn't been fixed 6 months after release.
But despite its flaws, Evil West shines as a great example of middle market goodness. It's not gonna blow you away by any means, but it doesn't have to, because its sole purpose is to offer an entertaining slice of dumb, VideoGameTM bullshit, and it certainly succeeds at that.

Evil West despertou meu interesse quando foi anunciado em 2022, pois parecia ser um jogo diferente e divertido. No entanto, minha experiência pessoal com o jogo foi bastante decepcionante, tornando-se um dos mais enjoativos que joguei recentemente. A jogabilidade e os combates em geral funcionam bem, e o estilo visual do jogo, que mescla o Velho Oeste com monstros e vampiros, é bem feito. No entanto, a gameplay se mostrou extremamente linear, simples e repetitiva. Apesar disso, Evil West cumpre seu papel e entrega uma experiência de jogo mediana. No meu caso, o jogo não me envolveu, pois valorizo bastante a combinação entre jogabilidade e história, e infelizmente, nesse aspecto, Evil West é carente, deixando muito a desejar. No entanto, se você busca um jogo com foco na jogabilidade e não se importa tanto com a narrativa, então Evil West pode ser a escolha perfeita para você que so quer abrir o jogo e dar uns tiros e matar vampiros.
- Jogabilidade satisfatória
- Visual do jogo bem feito
- Jogo extremamente linear e repetitivo
- História carente em desenvolvimento

This was the legitimate defintion of blah. this game had (like a lot of modern games) great potential with the atmosphere, and the God of War combat, but it floundered it all. The gameplay was repetitive, repeititive bosses, and upgrading that didnt really seem to matter. it was such a slog... and i was really dissapointed in this all. And the middle part of the game made me want to uninstall it, so i used IGN to track my progress to keep myself pushing forward. If you want brainless fuckery, be my guest. I can't believe the story was this bad either, holy hell. and the grover cleveland cameo in the end?!?!?!?! And Harrow being a bitch and a half that was barely resolved. One word: Dissapointing.

it makes Redfall seems fun/faz Redfall parecer divertido

Tuve un par de bugs y a veces se zarpaban con la repetición de enemigos pero no opaca LO BIEN que la pasé en el coop de este juego

"A era dos jogos de ps2 acabou...." Pelo visto não, em um momento de dicotomia na indústria dos games, onde temos cada vez mais jogos focados em narrativa cobrando full price surge evil west um jogo aos moldes do glorioso PS2
Quer dizer que ele tem os gráficos do PS? Não ganhafonoto, tudo bem que o foco dele não é gráfico, lançado em 2022 mas o gráfico já tá uns anos defasados. A comparação com PS2 é sobre a estrutura do game!
O jogo tem foco em combate, então a gente tem um loop de combate, combate, exploração, combate, puzzle simples, combate, combate, e não é qualquer combate, é aquele combate satisfatório, que dá vontade de upar ao máximo, variar combos, fazer um combate bonito!
Existe uma história também, os personagens são carismáticos, ela é um background pro combate, uma história com bons clichês, digana dos gloriosos monstros e filmes dos anos 2000
Não poderia ser diferente Evil West 8
