Overwhelmingly Positive Reviews reached!
We did it Champions!
At least on my end as I checked the store page it has reached over 500 reviews now and changed its classification!

If AMID EVIL reaches somewhere over 500 reviews on Steam with about 95% of the overall in the positive side, then it would tip over to the classification of "Overwhelmingly Positive"
... So maybe keep that in mind when EP6 hopefully drops tomorrow -- AS EP6 IS OUT, and the sale is still ongoing, and if you haven't done a review yet but still enjoyed it.

game itself is great but needs more polishing. i found menu ui truly terrible and unapeling to eyes for some reason. feels cheap and amatuerish . game music is truly forgetable. []

thats two things that make game kinda letdown at first look

UI, I like it, but I'll agree that it could be more readable, more clarity doesn't hurt.
Music, don't agree, Andrew Hulshult has done a great job here, it's different from Dusk because it needs to fit the theme of Amid Evil.
Only if Andrew himself wasn't happy then I'd understand changing the music.
Main menu though could use more of a theme or ambient track playing that slowly picks up after the title drop.

well i know its my twisted personal opinion . lot of fps games have ambient music. but when game is fast paced it kinda kill mood for me. thats why i prefer music from sonic mayhem over reznor anyday in quake as a example

[hexen nor heretic doesnt have any memorable music or etleast i dont rember any . so bar is not that high]

Once the combat kicks in the dynamic soundtrack still shifts to something a bit more actiony that fits the scene, it's not all ambient.
My biggest gripe with the game is the font being used. I have to actively read if something is a "2" or "3" and "5" isn't looking favorable in that regard, either. Plus it makes it take longer to read those notes on the wall than it really should, too. That's my biggest gripe, easily. I just think it's a straight-up terrible font.

The music is fine: a little forgettable, but fine (then again, I don't particularly remember the music in Dusk either). It's no Transistor or Icewind Dale, but it's definitely workable. However, in defense of the music, that might be because it's usually pretty quiet compared to the weapon effects and the sounds of a Soul Charge being used up, and the battle cries of enemies. Music that leans on the ambient side tends to get drowned out by sound effects unless it's explicitly made to take a front and center role. This is more of a nitpick specific to me, though. I'm an absolute sucker for good soundtracks, and this just isn't doing it for me. Again, it's not bad, it just doesn't get to that next level like the theme that plays in Kuldahar (Icewind Dale).

The enemy and level design I think are great, and the weapons are fantastic: especially when charged. You really feel like you're throwing a star at somebody or siphoning everything into a black hole in this game.

Well then sounds like someone has the makings of a review now, doesn't it? ;)
(Reviews don't have to be 100% absolute only lists of positives, plenty of room for constructive feedback there as well, as long as you remember that you're both writing for devs and someone who has potentially never laid their eyes on the game before and doesn't know what you're referring to.)

Had to update my own review with some thoughts of Ep6, haven't completed it but man, that's some trippy insane stuff!
Because of being an arcane magical dimension you really get some reality-defying structures and neat ways to traverse with water around, felt cleverly implemented!
How on earth are Indefatigable going to top this with Ep7??
At this point you just gotta trust that they simply will :cozytf2mug:

I have bought the game to support it, but I won't install it until it is polished some more. I want to experience it at its best. In the meantime I'm playing Quake and its two mission packs and Hexen II.

I agree, that while the fonts fit the game REALLY well, they should be easier to read. Music is perfect, Otherwise, im pretty satisfied with the game, and im happy i bought it! Its good that my lame streak finally broke. In the last 6 months i had to refund almost every game because it just wasn't as good as they made it out to be, but oh boy, im keeping this!

I would leave a second review if I could!

Just beat EP6!
Was an utter blast! That end bossfight was really fun! Even though not the hardest (not a criticism BTW!) It had a lot of tension to it with how the Twin Terrors were designed, their shrieks, their attacks, and the fact that you were fighting them while floating around in a suspended massive sphere of water in the middle of an endless dimension!
One time one of the Terrors knocked me out and that scared me as I was falling to what looked like a certain doom, luckily I managed to steer my fall into platforms below that shot me back up into the water sphere.
Really well designed encounter! :2018bestaward:
