DOS2, SoW, Elex, Destiny 2 in two days...
I'm sated for now. I will buy this game soon, though.
Can any "fan" of the first tell me how they experience this sequel?
MoreLuckThanSkill did a pretty good job describing the game.
I'll add my 2 cents, I just beat the Evil Within 2 on nightmare difficulty, it took me around 21 hrs. Overall I really enjoyed it, the first third is good, the middle third loses some momentum as the environment doesn't change much and your mostly doing the same things as the first third, but the final third is super strong. It has one of the best endings for a video game that I played recently.
Overall I give it an 8/10, carried by the strong third act and ending. A definite must buy for survival horror fans.
The game does a good job of making the NPC's memorable, they actually inject emotion and life into the game and are not just mobs standing around with an exclamation point over their heads handing out fetch quests. You really only see that stuff over the final third of the game though.
Also, the game does a good job of introducing a lot of different enemy types and bosses to keeps thing feeling fresh. That was a problem I felt Resident Evil 7 suffered from, it had good bosses but the mold monsters were too similar for my tastes.
