Resembling Bioshock 2's Big Sister in both aesthetics and movements, it's a constant thorn in your side and, as such, a pleasure to finally take down. At around two hours long, The Assignment is a reasonably-sized add-on which fleshes out The Evil Within's story while building on what made it so enjoyable in the first place. Let's hope its follow-up, The Consequence, lives up to it.

The Assignment offers up a thrilling three-and-a-half hours in The Evil Within’s grimy universe. Its stealthy gameplay, beautifully designed environments, and refreshingly grounded protagonist make it stand out from the main game, and a cliffhanger ending suggests there’s much more good stuff to come in part two: The Consequence.

The Assignment is a worthy addition to The Evil Within. It pulls off its scares in a totally different way, despite some sticky controls at times. Being equipped with nothing more than a flashlight may feel like a cliché, but Tango Gameworks make shake off all those feelings as you explore their masterfully crafted world of nightmares. Juli Kidman makes for a more realistic and likeable protagonist than Castellanos, too, even if only by a stones throw – but an improvement nonetheless.
