  • Conclusion: Outland is a solid and enjoyable platformer, and one of the best Metroidvanias available for Xbox Live Arcade. Fans of the genre will note the repetitive strain later into the experience, but anyone else is bound to have a blast throughout.

  • Excerpt: The easiest way to describe Outland is a blend of Metroid’s core gameplay with Ikarauga’s bullet hell boss battles and light/dark offensive and defensive polarity with a precision platforming and hack ‘n slash gameplay to progress.

  • Summary: An intriguing combination of Ikaruga and Shadow Complex , " Outland " is a great achievement from Housemarque. After losing their way slightly after Super Stardust, this represents a great return to form for the developer, with fantastic art and sound, and interesting gameplay.

  • Conclusion: Different udfordringer and the ability to play online co-op are also elements that pull in the right direction and it should certainly not be the last time that Finnish Housemarque pile into Outland universe, which might be regarded as something of a modern classic.

Outstanding platformer looks and plays like a dream.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Outland is a downloadable side-scrolling platform game with mild violence. Players do battle against fantasy creatures using a sword and dash attacks, but the game’s silhouette-style graphics show no blood or gore.
