Dear Jim: A few thoughts on your new style of review, as I’m sure you’re seeking constructive criticism or maybe you’re not, but here it is anyway). ] First, a monster reason you became “Jim Sterling” is because of your writing style. You have a unique voice, one that I imagine most people hear when they read your work. You are a talented writer, and your style bodes well when it comes to reviews. It’s an honest shame and it was a big reason why I became a fan of yours, dating way back to when you were at Destructoid.… Read more »

So is this just the same core scenario concept as Assassin’s Creed then, i.e. you’re just in a playable Total Recall like “simulation”? That seems pretty lame and unoriginal. Admittedly I know nothing about this game whatsoever.
Also is playing the first one required to fully enjoy the sequel (e.g. how many references to the first game are there)? How does it stack up against RE7 (which I immensely enjoyed) story and gameplay-wise?

Hmm, I guess there are less intriguing concepts out there with far more lootboxes.

I quite liked the first game(though I wish it hadn’t took months for the patch to get rid of that damned letterbox to come out) and this one is even better so far, just good solid survival horror.

It’s good see a game that has no microtransactions, seasonpasses and all that kind of bullshits.(At least for now…) Although it is somewhat sad that something that used to be a standard is now considered as extraordinary action. But I guess that’s the world we’re living right now.

I actually liked Evil Within 1 quite a bit but I’ll even acknowledge that it had issues, like how linear it was. The stealth focused DLC was much better, I felt. Glad to hear the sequel seems a step in the right direction.
