The Outfit Review

XboxGamers
22 February 2007
  • Excerpt: What a surprise, another World War 2 game being released. Canadians Relic Games, the makers of the all popular Homeworld and Dawn of War games, brings us a fresher look at the war genre with a 3rd person/RTS (real time strategy) style of game along with a whole lot of destruction. While this may sound impressive, the main problem with this game is it tried to offer too much in such a small package.

The Outfit

Xbox Evolved
18 December 2006
  • Summary: With everything it tries to do, only a few of them were actually done right. The RTS share is fun fun fun! The single-player is inexcusable. The destruction and mayhem is visually decent at the beginning but will wear on the gamer after awhile. The squad-commands are bland and nothing to brag about. The Xbox Live is the best part of The Outfit though I find it that people will stop playing Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter for this.
  • Pros: 8 Player Multiplayer. Xbox Live is great. Neat idea.
  • Cons: Bad Character models, boring single player. WW2!

True achievements

  • Conclusion: Well, quite frankly you either give up and turn it off, or you restart and spend another hour getting back to the same point in the level being more mindful of your expenditure. What's the point in having an all out 'Destruction on Demand' war when the points on offer won't buy you more than two tanks in an hour long level? A serious issue in an already flawed game. Oh, and the achievements? Mostly online (dead community) or just plain time consuming.

The Laser
26 September 2006
  • Summary: The Outfit’s graphics are decent from a technical standpoint, and it does an excellent job of exploiting the Xbox 360 hardware. There’s a lot going on in the title, and the battlefields come alive with an excellent level of quality evident throughout, with some light sourcing and bump mapping used to give certain areas of the game a modern appearance. While individual objects look a bit plain, the sheer amount of destruction more than compensates for this.

Inside Hotwire 3D

  • Conclusion: The graphics are still very good in many respects. Trees cast realistic shadows; the surrounding village burns as though it radiates heat; vehicles explode with impact; buildings blow up like the 4th of July fireworks. In the audio department, The Outfit’s sound effects are what gives the game its authenticity! The explosion from tanks and buildings take you right into the action.

Video Game talk
11 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Developed by Canadian-based Relic, The Outfit is a strategic action title that offers an impressive multiplayer experience and twelve painfully linear, single player levels. The purpose of the game is structured around capturing checkpoints which act as spawn points that unlock vehicles or weaponry. It's an easy concept to grasp, but the execution of a successful assault can often be troublesome if you choose to play it as a shooter.

GameTrailers

  • Excerpt: With the majority of World War II games being heavy on dramatic realism, THQ and Relic Entertainment offer something light and entertaining. Their first 360 title, The Outfit, has lots of big action, fun toys, and explosive effects, but the repetitive gameplay and mediocre design make it tough to take seriously. While other war games shoot for absolute authenticity, The Outfit stretches the story a bit and bases its twelve missions roughly on true events.

The Outfit Review

GameSpot
13 March 2006
  • Summary: The Outfit's aim for a bold blend of action and strategy gets sabotaged by a repetitious campaign, but it is redeemed somewhat by its multiplayer.
  • Pros: Good multiplayer modes, "Destruction on demand" makes deploying gear easy
  • Cons: Shooting guns isn't fun, Graphically underwhelming, Single-player game gets predictable and repetitive quickly
