If there's one genre that can look to advances in technology as a way to improve an experience it's survival horror. Moody lighting, atmospheric surround sound, dynamic mist effects that can obscure and reveal exactly what the developers want, the genre has never been in a scarier or more frightening place. Which is to say that, The Evil Within 2 was not an easy game to review.
In that my time-honored tradition of playing survival horror titles at night with the lights out, meant a whole week of being afraid. Very afraid.
