    The Evil Within 2

    Anyone played it yet?
    First one was good but my main gripe was it was not scary. Definetly not Resident evil 7 level of scary.

    I doubt the open world will help that. Still lookin forward to getting it.

    Got bored with first one, second one looks like the same thing.

    Outlast was better....... although not getting Outlast 2 either

    Yeah first one was shit. Only played for a couple of hours & gave up from boredom.

    Yeah, first one turned into a shootout massacre after the first scary stage.

    Not really what they marketed it as.

    No interest in it any further.

    2 looks leaps and bounds better than the first. Still, will wait for reviews.

    It looks good but I'll prolly play it when it gets a bit cheaper.

    If you played the original on the harder modes it certainly was more freaky, but certainly the pacing went up and down between shooting everything and survival. The final 3rd of the game basically followed the RE4 path and just went giant battle set piece to set piece.

    The reviews for this one so far look to be better. I'm still on the fence, mostly because there are so many games the next two months.

    Loved every second of the first one - I'm picking this up this week.

    Actually went back to the first one in the weekend, only got up to chapter 2-3 first time around. Enjoying it heaps this time, on Chapter 9 at the moment. Great game if you are a survival horror fan imo, I am always out of ammo and tense as hell which is strange because I usually beat games of this ilk with heaps of leftover ammo and health.

    Wonder if this has invisible difficulty adjustment like RE:4.

    I don't know if it does but I do know you can unlock a "classic" survival horror mode where weapons are default as found (no upgrading) and you're limited to just 7 saves through the whole game on the otherwise hardest difficulty mode.

    Bought this on a whim last nite. Seems suitably creepy so far although stealth seems pretty mandatory as the combat is a bit naff and it's easy to get overwhelmed by more than one enemy. The semi open-world / crafting elements are right up my alley.

    bought this one a whim today against better judgement, now I have wolfenstein 2, ass creed origins and evil within 2 and no time to play them because ill be play cod ww2 from tommorow until the first destiny 2 dlc is out... **** me, ill get to play these next year maybe

    on an interesting note though, im downloading a 15gb patch for the game at 30mbps, which is way higher than the 12mbps max that I should get unless vodafone sneakily boosted my speeds

    ps4 pro and xbox one x patches have been released

    game goes from 1080p 30fps on ps4 to 1260p 60fps on pro - what a difference it makes

    its 1800p 60fps on xbox one x

    Grabbed this on the black friday deals.

    I've got it on the Xbox one X. I've been noticing quite a bit of input delay. I gave up on Evil within 1 as I got terribly confused on where to go and what was the story. At least this one is a heck of a lot more easier to understand. I suck ass at these types of games so I'm playing on Casual difficulty, 5 to 6 hours into it and only up to chapter 5. I'd say this is a step in the right direction for Evil within games.

    I have finished both of these now.

    Evil Within 1 is the definitive survival horror experience while Evil Within 2 is something for the more casual/action/adventure oriented crowds.

    They are both very solid games but quite different in their approaches and target audiences, I feel.

    I stand corrected, someone on youtube has finally compiled the results and its interesting between One X and PS4 PRO

    The One X patch is focused solely on resolution, while PS4 PRO focuses on Performance - why have the devs chosen 2 totally different ways to focus their efforts, who knows...

    One X gets: 1800p with 30fps, yep no 60fps option for the One X, all you get is 1800p
    PS4 PRO gets: 1260p with 60fps, yep lower resolution which is not unexpected at all - but the game hits 60fps

    if I had to choose between the two then I'd choose 60fps, the game feels too slow at 30fps tbh - but I dont understand why there isnt a 60fps option on both machines

    I've been playing with the headphones on, in chapter 3 now and well I haven't been scared once yet, RE7 was far more scary

    you get a locked option (30 fps) and a unlocked option ( I find the unlocked option a bit easier to deal with but the issues still pop up from time to time)

    Both Evil Within and RE7 are not 'scary' imo

    on ps4 pro: locked = 1300p 30fps, unlocked = 1080p 60fps
    on xbox one x: locked = 1800p 30fps, unlocked = 1800p 30fps

    the framerate still gets unlocked on the xbox, however the game and tends to just sit around 30 most of the time while the pro does up to 60 - there are certain areas where the one x does get more than 30 but I think the highest I saw was 40fps and it was at a stair case at the start of the game

    maybe its a bug and the one x is supposed to drop down to 1440p or lower in unlocked mode, but currently its 1800p in both modes and in unlocked it can't get above 30 much

    Man this game is pretty long for a horror/survival game (not to sure which genre it should be placed under) atm I'm about 12 to 13 hours into it and on Chapter 13. Still pretty addictive to play even with the super weird framerate issue and slight input delays.

    Quite long yeah, just finished in 17 hours and 45 minutes

    My overall rating is 8/10, but for me it was a game of two halves

    The first half of the game is awesome, close to a 10/10 from me due to the open world level design, I went in with the idea to explore every little corner of the maps and kill all enemies, which made it a challenge since ammo is so scarce and stealth requires trial and error and this was super fun

    Then the second half of the game becomes more like a corridor shooter with small maps that are over quickly and this second half I rate 6/10, giving me an overall rating of 8/10 for the game

    Still a pretty good game overall that I enjoyed
