Welcome to another One Hour Tour!
Yes, I’m aware I’m quite behind on this one, however as I make my way through my backlog, I had just finished the first (very subpar) Evil Within so I’d figure I’d jump in the sequel right away.
While the first game felt like a subpar experience with rough edges, the sequel was a vast improvement upon it’s predecessor on all fronts: gameplay, visuals, environment, enemy design. Also the implementation of a semi-open world as players can roam around Union made the thing even more creepy. Add to this Silent Hill-esque concepts, especially towards the end, makes it one of my favorite games of all time.
This sequence takes place a bit further halfway through the game, so SPOILER ALERT!
