Outlast

ActionTrip
13 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The game is currently available on PC only, but will also make its way to PlayStation 4.
  • Pros: Survival-horror in its purest form, have the paramedics standing by just in case, oh and switch off the lights before you start playing and make sure you're alone;
  • Cons: The game throws one cliché too many into your face, story explanations kill off the mystery a bit too soon.

Outlast Review (PC)

gamingshogun.com
9 September 2013
  • Excerpt: In my gaming history, I have experienced a lot of unnerving video games. From cautiously sneaking about the first level of Rebellion’s 1999 Aliens vs. Predator, dodging Pyramid Head in Silent Hill, fighting Necromorphs in Dead Space, worried if my companion was infected in 2002’s The Thing video...

Outlast (PC) - Review

VGChartz
4 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Crafting a quality horror game that actually instills an intense sense of fear is an endeavor that doesn't happen too often. Games like Amnesia and Penumbra have haunted the dreams of gamers for years, but they are few and far between, with many developers attempting a horror spin that flatlines...

  • Excerpt: When I started up Outlast , I suddenly remembered it had been a while since I played one of these super-scary first person horror games. Sure, I played through Amnesia when it came out and I joined the Slender craze with everyone else last summer, but that was the last time.

The inmates are running the asylum in Outlast, and they’re terrifying (review)

VentureBeat
4 September 2013
  • Conclusion: I can’t say that Outlast is a “fun” game. It’s stressful and terrifying in a way that most recent horror games can’t match. The frights found in Outlast are nothing new. I’ve seen them in other horror games and movies many, many times. I’m jaded, I told myself.
  • Pros: It took about 10 minutes for Outlast to give me my first jump scare, a TV set that randomly turned on when I approached it. It was clichéd, old school. I can’t believe I fell for it. It took another 10 minutes for me to scream out loud. I imagine I threw in a few choice four-letter words as well....
  • Cons: While the lack of combat is designed to instill a sense of helplessness in the player, it’s a little annoying when paired with an automated checkpoint save system. Dying at the hands of an inmate will set you back a small amount, forcing you to replay certain areas multiple times if you’re unluck...

Review: Outlast – Whistleblower

Press-Start
12 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Outlast: Whistleblower is a genuinely surprising downloadable content package that manages to right any of the wrongs with its base game. The story is intriguing and conclusive, the new stalkers are well characterised and the scenario and scare variety have been improved to be less repetitious and...
  • Pros: Better scare variety, Frightening stalkers, Well written story
  • Cons: Limited replayability, Too macabre for some
