Game Over Online: "Outlast is maybe the hardest game I’ve ever had to review. It’s certain not to appeal to all gamers, and while I often personally use games to relax and blow off steam, I find that after playing an hour or so of Outlast I’m too wound up to play anymore. Good thing then that the whole game is about five hours long. Some would argue that it relies too heavily on the horror movie equivalent of the cat jumping out at you – cheap scares – and while perhaps that’s true, I found the timing to be excellent and it almost always got a jolt out of me. It’s intense, and exhausting, and immersive, and creepy as hell. Flaws? Sure, but the utter uniqueness of the experience allows me to overlook a few frustrations."
