The Evil Within 2 (Review)



    So I finally had time to play some games and I picked The Evil Within 2 to play all the way through. Now I never played the first one but I was told that this series is pretty good. So I decided to start with number 2 before I play the first one haha. So let me tell you about this game and series before I tell you what I think about it. 


    Three years after the events at Beacon Mental Hospital, Sebastian Castellanos has left the Krimson City Police Department to uncover the truth about the mysterious organization MOBIUS but continues to be haunted by his experiences at Beacon, the disappearance of his wife Myra, and the death of his daughter Lily in a house fire.



    Drowning his sorrows in a bar, Sebastian is then approached by former partner and MOBIUS agent Juli Kidman, who reveals to him that Lily is still alive since MOBIUS faked her death, though MOBIUS now needs Sebastian's help in saving her. Sebastian is then brought to a secret MOBIUS facility against his will where he meets the Administrator, who further explains that Lily is being used as the Core for a new STEM system to simulate an idyllic town called Union.



    However, some time ago, Mobius lost contact with Lily and their agents inside Union, and they no longer have any control over the STEM. Sebastian reluctantly agrees to help MOBIUS so that he has a chance to save Lily and enters the STEM.



    I don't wanna give away to much but at first Evil Within 2 kept me hooked with a good story and gameplay. The graphics are nice on PS4 and the upgrade system works well with level progression and weapon upgrades. But as you go through the chapters of The Evil Within 2 you start to realize the rinse, wash and repeat system built into the game. Towards 50 percent completion of the game, there are few and far moments that kept me enthralled.  If anything the game uses bosses from the first game and cutscenes that make you wanna play the first Evil Within instead. After I beat the multiple bosses in the game I was left not wanting more of Evil Within 2 but wanting to play the first one and see what I missed. Now the Evil Within 2 didn't do everything wrong. The game has great mechanics and this series can really grow from here. I'm excited to see what the third installment will bring to the table. With that being said I give The Evil Within 2 an 8 out of 10. I would recommend it to you old school resident evil fans. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think. And like always keep on geeking on. 


    Rated  8 - 10
