    I only played the demo for Evil Within but I really enjoyed it...some really nice horror elements...some of the bugs and performance issues turned me off from buying it but still might pick it up for cheap one of these days...looking forward to the sequel

    I'm like 3/4 though the first game it's a Amazing game very imaginative. If this game takes advantage of current generation consoles and PCs it could be pretty flippin' awesome. Yeah I paid like 7.99 for the 1st game or slightly more.

    Once I eventually got the first one to (mostly) perform well, I had fun with it. It's a little too heavy on the sneaking around, but I can see how some people prefer that approach.
    I'm more excited for Outlast 2, though. I think I appreciate sneaking around more when I have no weapons or means of attack at all.

    I attempted to play the first game twice but quit both times on chapter 2. The first chapter was excellent but in Chapter 2 it got very frustrating. Clunky controls, aiming, and too much stealth.

    I don't think I've ever re-started a game more than the Evil Within. I think I tried to give it a shot at least a dozen times. Between technical issues and odd pacing I just never got into it.
    If this one has anything to do with the first game I'll skip it. If it's entirely new, I might consider it though.

    I was a big fan of the first one, hoping the 2nd is just as good or better. October should be a great month for gaming, there can never be enough quality survival horror games.

    sequels are usually never better than the 1st game but it could happen.

    I am a HUGE HUGE fan of survival horror, but for some reason I just couldn't complete The Evil Within. I have tried and started that game three separate times since it's been released and I just can't stick with it. It sucks because I was especially excited that Shinji Mikami was directing it who was directly involved with almost if not all the Resident Evils, but The Evil Within just wasn't fun. Especially since it really really relied on jump scares and the fucking camera... they had to patch the damn game to remove the force letter-barring which is when I quite the first time when I saw there wasn't an option to remove it. Once it was patched I tried it again, but the game still didn't feel right. I will likely rent 2 but with so many other games coming out i'm not holding my breathe for this one.

    I thought it was a good critique, but I don't think the game will suck. That small amount of gameplay isn't enough to judge how good or bad it will be.
