About

The cameras are all focused on you; the center of the scene. Not just in character, you are the character. The part to play is singularly yours. Written just for you.You are met with silence. No barking orders from the director. No call to action that you need to become this version of yourself. The demand to act fills your mind, but the script pages hold no words.
Your past has helped to mold you into what you are, forced upon you the skills required to hone your craft. That same past has scraped deep furrowing scars into you, not on the outside where the world can see, but in a place buried so deep within that it has become shapeless. You push those memories down but let the experiences drive you into who, or what, you must play.
Darkness surrounds as you stand silently in the spotlight, the only sounds to be heard over your heartbeat are the distant breaking of waves against the hull and the sound of cameras pointed in your direction preserving this moment for eternity.
A deep and commanding voice rises from the distance. Act.
What part will you play?

Layers of Fear 2 reviews and comments

Soooo LOF2's a lot more obscure than the original game. The game invites a lot more thought and speculation to try and piece together the story, and the psychedelia that the last game was lauded for has been given more scale here and technically looks fantastic.

The bad news is that the game doesn't feel as focused.  It took me maybe two levels in before I began to understand the story, and thus get a real firm grasp on what the stakes are and what I should even be afraid of. I can also say that I just finished the game and don't have a firm idea on what was actually happening. I feel frustrated, but also highly motivated to play over in the New Game+ mode as I find the story to be genuinely intriguing and can't escape lingering thoughts and questions about the story. 

I know a lot of people don't like this game -- I think overall I enjoyed it as much if not slightly less than original. For fans of either horror or walking-sims, it might be worth giving a shot because I can't think of anything else like it out right now.

«Constantly dying and enjoy it»
This is a hard one to review for me because on a technical level it's done well. The story for me is bland and took me to the 3rd chapter to feel engaged by it. As for the horror, it's made up entirely of un-inspired jumpscares which doesn't take long to stop being effective.

I can't help but feel disapointed by this one having loved the previous two titles.
