Critic Reviews for The Evil Within: The Consequence

The Consequence falls short of greatness, but chills with gruesome bosses and spectacular environments.

The Consequence isn't as balanced a DLC package as one would hope for, but it serves its role as a piece that ties loosely-wound narrative pieces together. Armed with a few great gameplay sections, it is a welcome, even if not remarkable, addition to The Evil Within's offerings.

Drenched in atmosphere and relying on running over gunning, The Consequence wreaks havoc on the nerves and keeps you on your toes at all times.

A welcome addition to the main game, The Consequence deepens The Evil Within while being satisfying in its own right.

"The Consequence" has many things working in its favor. We definitely get a much better sense of Kidman's motivation, what exactly the limits of her loyalty are, and to whom that loyalty lies. The presentation is also top notch and continues the feeling from "The Assignment" that the content was not simply cut from the disc and then released later to make some extra money. "The Consequence" does run shorter than "The Assignment", and the inclusion of gunplay does hurt this expansion somewhat. Despite this, if you enjoyed The Evil Within and "The Assignment", this is a must-have, and the combined weight of "The Assignment" and "The Consequence" makes purchasing the Season Pass for the game a very easy investment.

Despite some annoying issues, The Consequence is an engaging slice of DLC to complement The Evil Within's twisted game world.

The Consequence's atmosphere was borderline perfection, unfortunately no other element of the game managed to follow suit. No matter how dark and terrifying the game manages to be at a standstill, it just isn't enough to carry the entire expansion to a fulfilling conclusion.

Although it creates a few loose ends while tying up others, The Consequence offers more of the same stealthy scares while boasting a few impressive and memorably freaky boss battles.
