Diehard GameFAN: Outlast Review

DHGF: Outlast is certainly an artistic marvel that is incredibly ambient and well designed artistically, but it’s also full of frustrations that add up over time, and while those who are easily scared may find it exceptional, its flaws will vex anyone who isn’t. The plot is mostly spot on and does a good job of carrying the game along, and the game is a technical and artistic marvel both visually and audibly throughout. The gameplay is simple enough to get into but features little novelties, like using a camcorder to see in the dark and take notes or hiding from enemies, that give it a flair many games in the genre don’t have. However, the game’s essentially over in one run, and it uses structured chase sequences in a way that becomes frustrating and perversely hilarious long before the game’s done throwing them at you.
