A worthy technical upgrade, but changes to enemy spawn locations serve to add frustration and highlight issues with the original release.
Whereas many modern takes on classic retro genres fall foul of style over substance, this has been built with such skill that it doesn't need to rely on our annoying fondness of the past to impress.
The game Obsidian always wanted to make, and the result is its finest work.
If you're new to the series or looking to jump in, you could well be playing this until Gearbox release Borderlands 3.
A superb, intelligent evolution of the series.
Episode 4 confirms what we already knew about Resident Evil Revelations 2: that it's a success, mixing and matching elements of Resi's old and new – while throwing in Raid mode – to good effect.
Hardline doesn’t sufficiently evolve interesting mechanics in the terrible single-player and is only saved by an at times enjoyable multiplayer component.
Enjoyable enough, but overall it adds little to Revelations 2.
The extreme highs carry Ori and the Blind Forest through to greatness if not quite flawlessness. Rarely is a game able to be so devilish in its gameplay yet so touching in its story.
The Assignment is a reasonably-sized add-on which fleshes out The Evil Within's story while building on what made it so enjoyable in the first place.
