The Evil Within was. Um, well... I sold my copy. I don't sell games very often, especially early in a console cycle, but boy was that an uneven game that was very poorly optimised for the then-new consoles.
The sequel has been looking notably better for a while, both in the litteral sense that the graphics seem up to par, as well as the sense that it seems like a more interesting game to play overall.
The total lack of PS4 Pro support is a bit worrying, but will only affect a small percentage of people, and as said above, the game looks pretty cool. Why not go whet your appetite?
