The monsters are just as creepy as in the first game (you'll even see a few you recognize at one point), but a little harder to take down - which is a good thing in my opinion. The mapping was smooth, which is important to me as I tend to get motion sick with some games. I had no issues whatsoever while playing.
Seriously...you won't be sorry. You fully get your money's worth with this one. Hands down, one of my favorites to date!
Let me set the record straight, this is a decent sequel to the original game, despite its flaws. I really enjoyed the first game as it did well to freak me and keep me on the edge of my seat (even though it was not that scary). The Evil Within 2 tries its best to replicate and improve what they did with the first game and they succeed and fail in some areas.
I did like that they included an open world aspect to the game and allow you to go around some of the town of Union. However, other than being able to go into a few buildings and finding some items scattered around, it just falls short. The map is very small and there isn't much to interact with to the point that all you do is kill monsters, find items and documents and go to the next point of interest. Therefore I was very disappointed that my attempt to explore the world was very limited.
The gameplay has improved decently even though the camera can still be an issue especially since it doesn't turn as fast as I would have liked. Moving around and killing enemies is more refined but the stamina bar is still an issue as you run out of stamina far too quickly even after you have upgraded it. The weapons in the game are a decent amount and can be used in various situations that will save your life at times. The AI for the enemies is okay as they run after you a good distance and know when to try and move and dodge your bullets. There is enemy variety but not enough to make it a major positive point. There are only a handful of boss fights and many were very annoying and lack a scary element. I can only think of one or two boss fights that were decent enough to get a thumbs up from me.
The plot and story were basically using ideas from other shows and basically not doing much to reinvent them. There are three main villains in the game, Mobius (the shadow organization which for some reason runs the world yet still wants to use STEM to...rule the world), Stephano Valentini (an artistic photographer turned into a serial killer), and Father Theodore (a religious motivational speaker who wants to use STEM to take over Mobius and take over the world where he is a God). Mobius is just like every other evil organization with a leader who is cold and off his knockers so we won't get much into them. I thought Stephano was the main villain of the game as trailers and promotional material for the game focused on him greatly. He provides the more psychological and sick and twisted sections of the game and really shows what the mind of an egocentric, psychotic serial killer can be like. There was also a certain style to him that I liked. Sadly, he dies early to halfway in the game and we learn that he was sent out to capture the Core by Father Theodore, who is a crazed religious zealot just like many others we have seen. He didn't really do any of his dirty work and basically only guilt tripped Sebastian throughout the story. While his boss fight brought back some of the iconic bosses in the first game, he was really a push over.
The graphics of the game are good, as expected on the PS4. Overall, the game is decent to play through and only those who loved the experience a lot would play a second time but it is not really worth it. Story is passable, gameplay is good, weapons and upgrade system is nice, bosses are a bit weak, villains were meh and could not even compare to Ruvik. I hope Evil Within 3 will try and attempt a better story and bring back Ruvik as we all know he is alive.
I'm looking forward to some dlc content. Hope that comes out soon.
