The Evil Within 2 is a solid horror game that expands the scope of the series to extend out of the shadow of a titan in the horror genre, even if it sometimes leans heavily on borrowed ideas. Its progression and difficulty curve create a satisfying loop that repays resourcefulness and strategy, but its set pieces and structure don’t build enough on the many ideas they borrow to make them feel new or interesting. The result is a ride that offers some fun thrills in the moment, but I don’t think I’ll lose too much sleep over these particular nightmares.
The Evil Within 2 doesn't quite manage to step out of the first game's shadow - but while it may not have the same bold, unified style, you won't have to worry about frustrating mechanics or enraging difficulty spikes. If you've got a soft spot for the original game in your survival horror-loving heart, you'll surely enjoy this sequel (and get a kick out of the many callbacks to the previous plotline).
The Evil Within 2 isn’t the freshest, most original horror game you will ever play. It doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel, and it’s by no means a genre milestone. What it is, though, is a solid, deeply enjoyable experience. The Evil Within 2 attempts to do many things, none of them entirely fresh, and while it doesn’t do any of them with resounding perfection, it still manages to deliver an excellent fifteen to twenty hours of some of the most intense action-horror gameplay in the last few years.
