Following The Evil Within 2 Game Review is an Interview with Shinji Mikami (Studio Director), John Johanas (Game Director), Trent Haaga.
Detective Sebastian Castellanos has lost everything, including his daughter, Lily. To save her, he must descend into the nightmarish world of STEM. Horrifying threats emerge from every corner, and he must rely on his wits to survive. For his one chance at redemption, the only way out is in.
It is no surprise to see survival horror making a noble return on the video game scene. During its emerging stages, this genre had many outstanding contributors. Resident Evil and Silent Hill are two great titles that may reverberate with many gamers on this topic, survival Horror. Yet, along with its evolution, major developers decided it would be an excellent design to invest heavy action thematics into survival horror. Remove the architecture of dread and uncertainty and put in its place high-powered weaponry and stockpiles of ammo. This idea just did not work. This is subjective. Yet, the sales and feedback speak for themselves. Google; Umbrella Corps, Aliens: Colonial Marines and DeadSpace 3 for some observation on these action/Survival Horror mash ups.
Of course from a business perspective, one admits taking into consideration of giving products to address the masses. First Person Shooter is the rave then, now and into the millennium. Call of Duty is one such title that has monopolized the market. The developers for Survival Horror titles such as Capcom and EA took a risk that didn’t pay off. This is the order of business, learn from defeat, recalibrate and adapt.
For publisher; Bethesda Softworks and developer; Tango Gameworks the forthcoming release The Evil Within 2 marks the next step in survival horror. Coming off the of the success of the 2014 release The Evil Within this second installment offers all demands in an immersive Horror experience.
