In expanding on its predecessor, Layers of Fear 2 sinks into a state of deep confusion.

Layers of Fear 2 is a stirring horror adventure with incredible writing that consistently subverts expectations.

No Recommendation / Blank

A slick psychological horror plagued by poor pacing and infuriating instakills

Surprising moments succeed at sending occasional shivers down your spine, but the game doesn't bring you deep enough into its world to inspire fear

Layers of Fear 2 swaps the mind of a tortured painter for one of a tortured actor, setting sail for the high seas in a sequel that disappoints.

I can’t recommend Layers of Fear 2 unless you just absolutely love the genre and have played everything else out there.

I'd still recommend Layers of Fear 2 to fans who enjoyed the original game's atmosphere enough to want to see it realized on a grander scale, but don't feel like you need to rush to play it at launch.

If I could, I would score Layers of Fear 2 somewhere between Null and Infinity, but I can't, and as everyone is going to have a different view on Layers of Fear 2 the score is pretty much irrelevant. If you know your films and consider yourself reasonably intelligent then I would recommend at least taking a look at Layers of Fear 2. I *think* I enjoyed it, but I honestly couldn't promise that you or anyone else would. What an odd curio of a game.
