After three years of development, which were converted to 20 hours of playtime, The Evil Within 2 has totally unlocked its predecessor's potential. The wonderful story, the blood-freezing atmosphere, the big variety of horrific monsters and the great progress systems make The Evil Within 2 one of the best survival-horror games of the last few years. Indeed, the game is not bug-free, but those technical issues rarely happen and don't hurt the overall experience. If you like the genre (and particularly the previous title), The Evil Within 2 will be one of your best nightmares yet.
Evil Within 2 brings the classic survival horror formula - to the modern times. Few are the games of today that will grant you that "barely made it" feeling you had playing Resident Evil ages ago. A near perfect, pure survival horror gem.
John Johanas has masterfully taken up the directorial reigns and given us a game that, while it shares many trace elements of DNA with its predecessor, has more than enough of a distinct identity in order to separate it from the pack.
The Evil Within 2 has fine-tuned its solid mechanical base and visuals, and even crafted some big improvements to areas such as exploration and character direction. Yet it lacks creativity and diversity with its level design and bosses. The game may be more presentable and refined than its predecessor, but it's also lost some substance in the process.
is that a joke? i played this game after re revelation, re revelation 2, evil within first one, and what i got?... silly plot that start the game.. "-oh your dother with us, bring her to us -ok!" its stupid for my opinion and it's just start. And all that main idea of the game about family and other things that boring. I just want to play Evil within part 2 dammit! after game i saw that main director was not japanese and understand why this game not even close to the first one.
