    All in this game is amazing. Graphics? They were ahead of it's time. Art direction? Just great. Music? The score is perfect and always fit the game. Plot and characters? Great and u will be interested in story and world until u finish the game. Developers even created the whole language for habitants. Gameplay? Excellent mix of adventure and action. And did i mention absolutely fun voice cast here? Expand

    Easy the best game ever made. Still no one knows about it, it really makes you lose faith in the industry. There is nothing else like it out there. I am still waiting for a game to beat the feeling of Outcast. Expand

    This is one of the few games that I would ever rate a 10. The music is incredible, the atmosphere and level design really pull you into the world and hours fly by. It's the kind of game that you must savor like a fine dish. I probably replayed it 6 times. I would pay good money for a remake of this. Expand

    This game is one of the best I've ever played and at any rate one of the best sci-fi adventure out there. The graphics look pretty nice for a 14-year old game (high-res patch), there is a nice soundtrack, the actors are brilliant and the story is really nice. I love the characters and while playing you learn a lot about them and the world Adelpha. I hope there will be a sequel to this game from the new studio Daoka, which is founded by the old developers of the game studio Appeal. Expand

    Truly a masterwork for its time. Voice, sound assets are superb. Strong and enthralling story line. And the voxel engine makes the sandbox environment strangely organic and unique. Expand

    There is not much to say. Outcast is a sci-fi action-adventure (with a sandbox structure) and still one of the best games ever released! Voice, acting, sound, soundtrack, story. To play something like Outcast we had wait Mass Effect (2007-08). Expand

    Don't buy into the hype. This is a very obscure and niche game. The graphics did not age well, the movement and gameplay is not fluid. The cutscenes look great for the time, but the story is a miserable trope-fest. Level design is poor; think of a free-roaming, instanced Dynasty Warriors map.

    The game forces a tutorial on you (shoot, swim, interact), but then dumps you into a free-roaming environment with no direction.

    I was told I wouldn't be disappointed by this game, that it still plays well and uniquely, that its still beautiful. Not true at all. The game plays like a free-roaming Crash Bandicoot with guns, and the levels look bland with a low field of view.

    If you want a true space exploration and fantasy game from the 90's, try The Dig from Steven Spielberg. I can't get into this game at all.
