    The Evil Within 2 is good old-fashioned survival horror with a little bit of an open-world bent, and it works beautifully. It’s tense, it’s scary, it’s exciting, it’s absorbing – it’s everything I hoped it would be and more.

    Be prepared for some slightly clunky movement and somewhat repetitive walking simulator sections. Past that, it’s a wonderful sequel to a game that was originally sort of a miss, rather than a hit. You’ll become just as invested as Sebastian is when trying to find his daughter and walk away from the experience feeling like you got your money’s worth. The Evil Within 2 is well worth the purchase, but especially (for) those who enjoyed the first game and want something more.

    The Evil Within 2 is a terror title that offers many more possibilities than its predecessor. It's survival horror in its pure state, and it's very well-implemented.

    The Evil Within 2 gives you more options to play your way in a much bigger survival-horror playground than the original. Although a disjointed plot and weak protagonist make it slow to get started, being pursued through an intriguingly bizarre world by plentiful and disturbing monsters kept my palms sweaty and my heart in my throat thanks to a strict adherence to the most important survival horror rule: you should always be on the back foot.

    A gripping, well-told horror story held back by occasionally awkward handling.

    Technically speaking The Evil Within 2 is a lot better than its predecessor. The game is a lot more accessible for a greater audience, without forgetting about the die hard fans.
  7. 60
    The Evil Within 2 is just like its predecessor: a mixed bag. While it had the potential to be something absolutely brilliant, Tango Gameworks has attempted to both cram too much in and offer too little at the same time.

    As twisted as this game is, I couldn't wipe the smile off my face the entire time. The Evil Within 2 is worth your time, especially if you're looking for something to scratch the survival-horror itch.

    Enjoy your stay in Union!

The scares, the visual design, music, atmosphere, gunplay, survival aspects are all top notch. That said, moving to a Dishonored like hub world kind of kills the pacing, which is crucial to a horror game. I spent 4 hours in chapter three just doing map markers, which can be great for some games, but not so much for this.

    Performance-wise, it's pretty solid but it does stutter a bit after starting up.
