8.5 / 10.0

The first part of The Evil Within's DLC is just as good as the main game, with some great twists to the formula.

No Recommendation / Blank

I just wish it wasn't so clumsy where it counts, since there are few gameplay styles more off-putting than poor stealth, and the stealth here is often very poor indeed. Fans committed to the loopy storyline will probably be able to look past that and enjoy the surreal ride for its narrative and atmospheric pleasures. However, such frustrations can't help but drive a large rusty nail into the heart of an otherwise generous pair of expansions.

Horrifying environments and enemies keep you on your toes, but a few choice mechanics can be frustrating and detract from immersion.

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.
