>thought the first one was a 9/10
>finally playing the second one as it's on PS+
>got to chapter 4 and the game has been genuinely dogshit in every segment so far
Where did people find the audacity to tell me this was better in terms of gameplay? It's better in terms of literally nothing. And who the hell are these voice actors? Tatiana's sounds truly woeful. Every time I hear anyone speak I'm in pain.
why is literally every opinion i see on this series either "first one great second one awful" or "first one awful second one great"
because they're almost different genres.
Because shitters don't like the first game.
Because the games are pretty different from eachother making people who like the general mechanics/loop of one game to not like the other. They basically traded survival horror for action/open-world
Are they at least tonally consistent?
lurk moar and you'll see sequel fans started it
t. sequel enjoyer
>First one: sacrifices gameplay and QoL stuff for thicker atmosphere and challenge
>Second one: sacrifices atmosphere and challenge for better gameplay and QoL
because one is a good albeit flawed action game while the other is slop made by and for retards
1st one; terrifying kino
2nd one: kino but terrifying
I love both
Why do people praise Evil Within so much? It's bad. Mikami's name attached to it made it sound like was some sort of groundbreaking RE or SH series. When it's just an action shooter with gorey elements. Very repetitive and tedious.
>Very repetitive and tedious.
like every damn game ever retard
What?! Every TEW thread is people saying "First one good, sequel bad"
yes, but if he had a normal take that people agreed with then he wouldn't get replies
Naruhodo, so that was his keikaku
i'll take credit for that. Every thread years ago favored the sequel until i posted my uncontested reasoning. I woke up the reasonable and they did the rest for me. I bettered Ganker slightly. You're welcome.
not only you're wrong and biased, but nobody knows you or will credit you for battering a game you don't appreciate.
Ganker only will get better with positivity, tho you're a frog poster so opinion discarded automatically.
>but nobody knows you or will credit you
don't need that. I'm literally The Dark Knight.
the dark knight wouldn't even say "i'll take credit for that" you silly goose.
Less posting a pepe frog.
If you wanna be such an hero you need to see your flaws.
you either live a hero
or die long enough to see yourself become the villain
some say he is still alive somewhere
yes he would. I would know because I'm him
Doin' god's work
Thanks, friend. You did the world a favor. Only shitters like 2.
dude i love it when you get on a bus and man a turret to mow down zombies now THAT'S kino
HOLY GET! TEW1 can't stop winning!
Also loved the dlc. I even played the kidman dlc on pitch black difficulty. Did TEW2 get dlc? i'll actually play it if it did i just don't remember hearing about it
the intro section of TEW2 mogs 90% of TEW1's art style
You are absolutely retarded
TEW2 is unironically a lot better than the first one. Not many sequels manage to beat their predecessors. RDR, Postal, Rayman, Resident Evil, GTA...
The first game was a disjointed tech demo. Two is great across the board.
I'm happy Daddy Sebastián got a happy ending.
it's worse because it's directed by a white guy. the first was japanese. gaijin can't get anything right.
TEW2 is a better game in nearly every way, so much so that TEW2 retroactively makes TEW1 and its story better. TEW1 stops being fun after the village, the city section of the game is one of the worst segments I have ever seen.
If I want to play RE4 I'd play RE4, not a discount mexican version of it.
the first one was a 9/10
I'm sorry to hear that.
Still had a better final battle than the original
It was kinda shit until I started getting into the first open section, then I started to enjoy it.
definitely agree about worse VAs in general, I wonder why Sebastian's wasn't brought back from 1, he sounds much worse here.
Tatiana's even worse.
Maybe budget reasons. The first game had a few TV actors in the cast.
IIRC the game was made during the voice actors' strike.
Tatiana's hot as fuck though
>Where did people find the audacity to tell me this was better in terms of gameplay?
This is literally just a feeling but those retards are weeb zoomers.
>artist character looks like a weeb attractor
>open world meme appeals to brainlet zoomers
2 is better than 1 but one has plenty of soul and feels more like RE4 so maybe you like RE4 a lot or got to like it because of it, and so many of who say one is better is because they're RE4 fanboys even if they deny it. Both games are awsome and i can't wait for an annoucement for 3 with jojo...
We're going to make it jojo bros.
OP here. The only RE games I've played are 5 and onwards. My favourite is 7. Haven't played the remakes.
First one is worse than RE5 and RE6. It’s also as a shooter as them.
evil within 1 is discount resi4 that has a couple of cool moments but mostly misses the mark and doesnt feel as good to play as resi4, it also underutilizes what could be an excellent excuse to give you some seriously surreal and varied environments
evil within 2 fixes the dogshit gunplay and makes almost every COULD HAVE BEEN GREAT moment from Evil within 1 into boring gay slop that does nothing.
neither game is great and both released during droughts so that retards who havent had a decent FotM game in a while will shriek KINO!!!! NEW GAME JUST CAME OUT AND MY BRAIN IS VERY MALLEABLE. in 10 years expect both games to be heralded as underrated MASTERPIECES
>buzzword, the post
They should start filtering sl*p at any moment now. Literal bad post detector.
Anon, you have some serious mental disorder or got severely influenced by others, you need to get checked.
>le your post is bad
suck shit gay, my opinion is my own and both games can be safely skipped
Your opinion is your own, still a badly formed opinion that nobody will take seriously because you can't stop talking like a fucking npc out of a nightmare movie. Stop repeating things you don't even probably know why you're so mad about.
>anime reaction image
yeah it fits
Anime website, bro.
Only pre-2010 anime bro
original Ganker would shit on modern anime
anime is anime, bro.
They would like and consume the same stuff as today. Yet i do know some new anime has no soul, but some do.
>yeah it fits
it really does
>and both released during droughts
2014 was great if you had a Wii U
2017 in general was packed with games, so I have no idea what the fuck you're on about.
It’s not discount re4. Fuck off. It’s an entirely different game with visual similarities at most. This is why people don’t give the game a chance, they’re constantly told it’s “like re4 dude!” And they play it and it’s not like re4 and inevitably go “this isn’t exactly like re4 this fucking sucks, fuck this game.”
It's fucking wild how the director on this game went on to do Hi-Fi Rush.
Which has a bunch of meta stuff about how video game executives meddle in shit and make everybody's life worse
In fact there's an entire chapter where the boss is a creative director and you defeat him by making him waste his money on retarded ways to kill you until he runs out of development budget
And the train sequence ends with a giant robot that destroys the train, then there's dialogue or something about how it was a really cool looking robot that was supposed to have its own boss fight but they didn't have time
Also it has hidden cameos from robosebastian and robojoseph, and the mirror and clair delune
So he went from a dogshit game to another dogshit game?
you can prefer the first (you're right) without being mean to the second (a pretty good game)
i liked the ending. So happy he got his daughter back
The only part of 2 I liked as much as the first game, were the optional parts where you're being hunted by that ghost woman going "Seebaaaaastiiiaaan" the whole time, that was creepy as hell.
Other than that I remember not liking it as much as the first.
if you though EW1 was a 9/10 you're clearly got brain damage, the sequel was an upgrade in almost every way gameplay, controls, enemy AI, level design, boss fights, weapon upgrades and abilities, etc. it even had a nice story and ending unlike the trash that was the first game.
> enemy AI,
> level design,
> boss fights,
damn broke the combo by not saying anything. Other than that you're pretty good at being retarded!
>can't make a valid counter argument
no need to sign your post

this isn't an argument, i'd have to explain how
>NOOOOOOOOOO STOP SAYING THOSES THINGS I DON'T LIKE OR AGREE WITH!
STOP SAYING THOSES THINGS I DON'T LIKE OR AGREE WITH!
this but unironically
Your vidya iq is so low (and your real one too).
its objective fact that evil within 1 had terrible performance issues, camera controls, terrible AI and even after multiple patches runs like complete ass, evil within 2 is a much more polished game doesn't crash every session and is actually fun to play. your iq just like your taste is shit.
worked perfectly fine on an xbox
>uh uh it crashed a lot!!1!
mcfucking have a nice day
posts like this are deserving of shitpost responses
just post a copy of The Evil Within 1
sure it did
HOLY BAD OPINION, BATMAN
Its a poor mans RE4 no amount of cope from you will every change that
You mean the enemies that will chase you until you reach their limit on where they're allowed to roam, so they turn around and walk back, giving you the opportunity to stealth stab them?
The first thing I did when I encountered the first enemy was run away to see how long they would chase me for. They deaggro as soon has they hit their max distance, it was hilarious.
It blows my mind just how decisive the reception to the two games is. I dislike 1 and actually stopped playing it during the second to last chapter but I really enjoyed 2 and beat it even on hardcore.
And it doesnt get any better, the whole hub world design with side "missions" made this game dogshit, they shouldve kept it lineal like the first game
They really did fuck up the art style in the second game.
Only gays like the sequel. Sorry you've been tricked into wasting your time on it.
>dude finds an aspect of his soul is chained up in the asylum, so he shoots it for being weak
>when he comes out of the hallucination he feels...better.
he should have been the main villlian
When I played the first game I was so close of uninstall because of how janky the controls were but the story and atmosphere kept me going to the point were I freaking loved the game.
The second game just misses the mark, the only good part it had was Stephano (like anon said, should have been the main villain but instead we got a generic fire magic guy).
Was really hoping that Mikami would make a part 3 and take on the director role but he quit Tango so guess no TEW3.
TEW1 is a janky dogshit and one of the worst games ever.
John Johanas actually mogs Mikami so bad, TEW2 is so much better than the first game and Hi-Fi rush was also crazy good.
>one of the worst games ever.
they're pulling out the big guns now!
I remember watching SBFP and Pat just shitting all over the game and it even crashing during the recording of their video. Jank isn't the word for EW its simply a mediocre pile of garbage
Yeah, they had to play through two versions of the game. Started on PC, crashed multiple times so they switched over to the PS4 version, and I think even that one crashed once but they moved past it.
Seeing Seb just explode into gibs for the first time had me howling. I guess it made sense considering the game was on the id tech engine, which was all about that shit.
Holy polarizing game. Just make out with each other already anons.
If we don't unite, they won't announce 3...
funny, i thought the oposite
Evil Within 5/10
a shitty re4 clone, dated clunky controls, completely incoherent story with 0 sense and letterboxing that made some bosses and locations impossible
heard they removed the letterboxing since then, but fuck me, first impressions are everything
Evil Wihin 2, 7+/10
a pretty good survival horror with a nice story and really good ending
if the enemy ai and combat were better it would be even better
its biggest flaw is how easy it is to break the combat, it could have been an easy 9/10 if combat was bit better
1 has better easter eggs
2 has better villains
The gameplay is miles ahead TEW 1.
That section of 1 in chapter 6 where you have to fight a bunch of enemies in a small room highlights how awful it is to simply turn around
>awful it is to simply turn around
it's fine on controller imo
The open town section was brilliant I never got the hate for this game
>1 never forces stealth outside of the first two chapters and a couple sections on Akumu
>Agony bow has 3 different bolts that have amazing function in all kinds of situations
>Each encounter is almost like a puzzle with a dozen different tools to open it up
>Not to get started on match sticking hoards of guys after corralling them
>2 just has the powder system from Resident Evil
>No agency or thought on what to use, just grab best gun and shoot
>Enemies feels spongy as fuck
>Stealth is so easy to exploit on top if it you may as well just rush out of cover 3 times to insta a dude
I just don't get it.
When that artist motherfucker set up a trap I thought it was a replay like in his other art works. As the Hysteric was running at me I was mesmerized by the slo-mo and effects. Only at the last second I realized what was going on and frantically I pulled out my gun to shoot and miss half of them. Just barely did I manage to get her down. That was a kino moment tbh. I think it's kind of a generic game, but has some really interesting moments here and there. Overall I quite enjoyed it.
1 is just a cooler game. First game is some schizo nightmare shooter with minimal dialogue and story. meanwhile the 2nd game starts off with a ton of exposition and the story is a lot more in your face. 2nd game has that open world survival aspect with skill trees that a lot of people like but I think the actual shooting is somehow worse and less satisfying than the first game.
I enjoyed both.
the first one was a 9/10
The first game has a terrible story and awkward, super linear level design. It's an incoherent mess, like a worse RE4.
Wheras TEW2 is like a better Silent Hill Downpour.
