    The first act of DreadOut shows all the potential of the full game, still in development. The atmosphere is thick and scary and wherever you go, something happens. It takes only three to four hours to beat the game, but with so many different ghosts to fend off, it's a trip that's worth your time.

    Digital happiness push all the right buttons with a game that will make you think and possibly even be a little scared.

    A Project Zero-like experience with poor visuals and animations, but good puzzle design and great atmosphere.

    If DreadOut's glimmers of potential are enough to push you past the mountains of frustration and poor design, don't expect a lot of reward for your struggles. The game ends with a limp cliffhanger, no narrative closure and an unenthused "To Be Continued" hanging over the credits.

    DreadOut revels in cliche, sometimes quite smartly.

    This second and final act shows way less care for details if compared to its predecessor, and it's a true shame.

    Conceptually, DreadOut is interesting, but it's hamstrung by weak execution.

    It reminded me of Project Zero/Fatal Frame a bit and this game-series was one of my favorite horrorgame-series ever. It brought back so many memories. And because of that I'll give the game a 7/10 !

    Mixed reviews. This is only for fans of horror that can get through the mediocrity of this game. Gameplay is boring and seems unfinished, but story is OK and atmosphere is just almost tolerable. This would be a really good game if they put in a little more effort.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Absolute **** Cliche in every way possible, things happen at random, to find things you have to take pictures of the most random thing (aka the hanging bodies to find the keys and you can't pick up the keys without that picture), no explanation, unfitting ending music, I could go on. This game is terrible in every possibly way. Expand
