      This game is a blast to play. Good survival-horror, a crazily-effective take on the concept of open-world gaming, and a really captivating story. Yes, some parts of the plot are a bit cheesy, but even the best Resident Evil games have their fair amount of cheese. I played the original Evil Within despite some murky reviews, and also despite being genuinely terrified by the premise. The story presented in the original was intriguing until the realization that it was getting very convoluted with no chance of gaining clarity. The controls weren't too bad once I adjusted, but they were somewhat clunky. Either way, it was Survival-horror, terrifying in spots, and the boss fights were very engaging. Though many fans of the OG will not agree, the mechanics and story are much better in the Evil Within 2. It is still very much a survival-horror when played on the moderate-to-higher difficulties, and many elements are absolutely chilling. However, the scares and atmosphere aren't quite on par with the first (but they are much better than a lot of the schlock that's been pushed out in the past several years). Overall, though, I feel that the Evil Within 2 is the better game, and really improved a lot of the hang-ups of the first entry. Lastly, as the question comes up a lot - no, you don't have to play through the first to enjoy this one. This game does a nice job of incorporating a recap of the first game and includes it in a way that won't make people who missed the first one feel lost. If anything, play through this one first then pick up the first as a sort of prequel. However, I will say that a major plot-point of the first game will be spoiled by playing this one first.

      I really enjoy Resident Evil type games. The Evil WIthin 2 have some open-world elements in the first 5-6 chapters of the game. The story progress of the game goes by chapters. You can go into a fight guns blazing or you can be like solid snake and take out enemies stealthily. Of course, certain enemies and all bosses you have to fight them head on. But overall, I enjoyed the game very much. You can get 100% achievement with 2-3 playthroughs. If you play on the nightmare difficulty with your first playthrough, you can get 100% achievement with two playthroughs. There is a new game+ for any difficulty you complete the game in. If you beat the game in casual difficulty, and you want to start playing a game in the nightmare difficulty, New Game+ will not be available for that higher difficulty. New Game+ is only available for a difficulty you completed and lower (if that makes sense).

      If you enjoyed the first game, then you will really appreciate the direction that the developer (Tango Games) decided to take for this sequel. I'm not going to spend any time talking about the actual game mechanics because a majority of people that plan to play this are already familiar with the original game. This game is far more polished than the first Evil Within. The tweaked the difficulty so it's not as punishing and boosted the graphics. This game looks really good on a PS4 Pro. They removed those annoying cropped black bars from the top and bottom of the screen to maximize the available area on screen which was an added plus as well. I personally think that the story is more refined as well; it's more linear and easier to follow. Basically, buy this game if you enjoyed your experience playing the first Evil Within.

      This game was very fun to play. The graphics and environment was much improved and the gameplay kept me on my toes the whole time. Voice acting and dialogue could use a bit of work, but overall this was an enjoyable horror survival game. Both the suspense horror and jump scares were nicely mixed and never felt overly cheesy, or out of place. The pacing can be uneven at times and I have mixed feeling about the slightly more open world. But I would still highly recommend this game to anyone that enjoys a solid gaming experience and not just survival horror addicts.

      Every chapter just got better & better. Every corner you felt like you being hunted & watched. You can run & gun or opt out for a more stealth approach. Though sometimes sneaking is the best option. The replay value is high. You have so much to collect that one play through isn't enough. You got locker keys, notes, weapons, & more that you just have to take your time & search every inch of the game to find it. Lastly the monsters are fantastic. I really enjoyed their character design & overall sense of dredd they had.. Perfect for those horror survival fans. From the Legendary Shinji Mikami of Resident Evil, a whole new nightmare for fan's new & old.

      Survival Horror Done Right

      If you're a survival horror fan, you owe it to yourself to check this game out. It's like a combination of The Last of Us, Silent Hill, and Resident Evil all combined. If you haven't played the first game, don't worry as it's not required. However, you'd be doing yourself a great disservice if you skip it as it is quite excellent as well. This game has it all: brutal combat, terrifying & grotesque enemies, atmospheric soundtrack, and a great story. Also, if you have played the first game, played on normal or a higher difficulty, be sure to play this one on Nightmare as the difficulty has been reduced some.

      So take the first game and throw away ammo pickups. There's no hallways to run through, collect ammo then shoot your way to the checkpoint. Instead you're running around the open world searching for very scarce ammo to then unload all of it into one or two zombies. I've only played a little bit of the game, but I see now it'll take a lot of patience and sneaking to get anywhere in this game. No shooting your way through. Graphically it's very nice. Good art direction. Gameplay wise, it's probably not for everyone. I'd check a few YouTube videos on gameplay to see if it's your thing.

      A new iconic experience from the master of horror Shinji Mikami. Except for minor faults The Evil Within II is well sculpted and defined the precision and craftsmanship is breathtaking. Character Development, Narrative, Gameplay, Performance capture are all beautifully packaged the love and passion put into this game is inspiring. The atmosphere dark and very cinematic. The gameplay, animations is absolutely better than first game. Story is strong and deep, especially the starting sequence is incredibly impressive. It's definitely one of the best games on this generation.
