The Evil Within 2 released worldwide today. The game had a much smaller window from announcement to release than most games, only giving media the opportunity to really go hands on with it once before release, so it wasn’t clear what to expect from the final product. Whilst our review is probably still a day or two away (we only got the game yesterday morning), we’ve rounded up some reviews from the internet.
So far, the game is tracking ahead of the original on Metacritic with a score of 80 compared to 75 for the original. It’s worth noting that the original released very early in the generation when there wasn’t as much competition.
However, reviews definitely suggest that The Evil Within 2 is better in almost every way.
