Sooo I just finished this.
Not as good as the first game, nor is it as scary. It's also easier than The Dark Descent. I died only once through the whole thing, and it was at the end of the game. It didn't even make me jump like the first game did and the only thing that did kind of scare me was, again, at the end of the game.
A lot of things were removed, as well. Like tinderboxes to light up rooms with, for example. There's no oil for your lantern, either - you have an infinite light source with it. Speaking of lights; light (including your lantern) will flicker on and off when monsters are nearby. Makes it too easy to hide and not get caught.
Meh. Overall, I did enjoy the game, but I have to say I'm very disappointed with it and that I don't see myself playing it ever again.
