The Evil Within Subcategories
I just finished this game today and really enjoyed it, despite some obvious flaws. The combat and stealth aspects were consistently fun (I normally despise stealth games), the graphics were relatively pretty (and smooth in my experience, I played on an Xbox One X), and the boss fights were fairly imaginative and fun. I thought it was a huge improvement over the first one.
That being said, most of the voice acting and writing was pretty terrible, and the main character is incredibly weak and generic. At the core (no pun intended), I did like the basic story though. Some probably don’t like the fact that it was mostly linear, either, but personally I fatigue of the open-world formula.
Anyway, I just wanted to highlight the fact that I found this sequel quite fun, especially in the closing chapters, and if you’re a fan of action/horror games (not really survival horror) a la Resident Evil 4, don’t sleep on it.
This could be an issue with the game files becoming corrupted. Verifying the game files in Steam may help with the game crashing.
To verify your game cache:Right click the game in your Steam Library.Go to Properties then the Local Files tab.Click Verify Integrity of Game Cache. Wait for it to complete.
This should remove any potentially corrupt or broken files and allow the game to run.
