The Evil Within 2, the survival horror sequel developed by Shinji Mikami's Tango Gameworks, launched less than ten days ago and already folks have found a way to enable a first person mode of sorts on PC.
Here's how you can enable it, courtesy of DSOGaming:
All you have to do is open the console and type “pl_FPS 1”. In order to enable the in-game console, you’ll have to follow this guide:
- Create a shortcut on your desktop and add: +com_allowconsole 1
- Start the game from the shortcut
- While in game, press the insert key to bring the console
In his review, Rosh pointed out that The Evil Within 2 is a pretty good game though not quite as scary as he would have liked.
As a horror game, I’m not sure The Evil Within 2 could stand up on its own. With the occasional jump scare and some good direction you might get the right tone once in a while, but for the most part the game fails to deliver on the overall sense of horror. Behind that, though, is a great game with interesting enemies, a story that makes no sense but doesn’t need to and some really good piece of imaginative art design. It’s probably better that it’s less scary, the game will hopefully find a home for people looking for something on the borders of scary rather than just those few hardcore horror fans.
Although it tries a little too hard and fails to properly capture the best horror tropes, The Evil Within 2 is a great, imaginative game with enough tension that you probably won't mind the relative lack of horror.
