  1. Outlast: Whistleblower's a very good horror DLC like the original game. This DLC offers: a very good story and more gore, scary moments to the horror lovers. Even the gameplay mechanics's still same, the DLC gives us a key character: Waylon Park.

    Whistleblower does a good job explaining the original Outlast's storyline. [June 2014]

    Though the mystery of what happened in Mount Massive was already discovered, developer Red Barrels has shown that there are plenty of new horrors that can be built, even more grotesque than then those left behind.

    More of this quality can't be a bad thing, even though you're not as panicked anymore as you were when the main game came around.

    Whistleblower just finished a tale of uncommon insanity. He raised the level of brutality, and explained several mysteries from Outlast's plot. However, the number of manhunts with psychopaths has been unnecessarily increased, and maybe there is too much of a rove in the game's setting. Otherwise, Whistleblower is brutal and an (un)enjoyable experience.

    For Outlast fans and horror aficionados alike, a return to the demented halls of Mount Massive is exactly what the doctor ordered.

    While Whistleblower sheds a bit of light on the mysteries of the original, but ultimately feels far too familiar, far too often.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I love this DLC, it is better than the original game, and there is a prehistory, and continued the main game, and keep it at bay, even this was not the original, new characters, such as the protagonist, Uncle cannibal psycho husband and old friends, a priest and Chris. 10/10 is just the best of the best horror. Red barrels worked wonderfully. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Um... The low critic review score really emphasizes the key concept of this game - love isn't for everyone ;). The developers are really talented in creating a creepy atmosphere. This is even more scary than the original one with a twisted mind of dark humour. Enjoy your trip, a romantic love story is awaiting for you.

    Really appreciate the guts of developers, who boost the game to such a high, without worrying about complaints of so many terrible, wierd and nasty scenes.

The dlc does not dissapoint and for 5 pounds you can expect at least 2 hours of bone chilling enjoyment.

Whistleblower has the exact same gameplay and mechanics as the base game, only you get to view the story from the perspective of someone else in the asylum and get to encounter a few new psychos too.
    If you enjoyed and wanted more Outlast, here it is!
    My only real complaint would be a few very noticeably scripted events that I rarely seen in the base game. Particularly, enemies triggering or spawning only after you cross a specific threshold, giving the enemy a forced jump on you. "...Lookin' at you, Frank Manara..." But it was rare and few.

    Who’d want to be a whistle-blower at this f***ed up place, seriously … Then again, without heroes willing to put their own lives andWho’d want to be a whistle-blower at this f***ed up place, seriously … Then again, without heroes willing to put their own lives and well-being first, who knows what kind of nefarious things would still be going on around the world. With that in mind, I felt slightly more attuned to playing as an unlucky whistle-blower, as compared to being an incredibly brave reporter. Technically in the first game you actually have a choice as to whether to go into the Asylum or not, whereas for poor Waylon Park, it’s literally a case of endless bad luck, with the occasional sprinkling of good fortune in his gory escape.

    Everything I chillingly enjoyed about the main game was present in the Whistleblower DLC, from the tense and immersive environments, to the macabre and downright scary weirdos and psychos you encounter. Don’t expect anything, mechanically speaking, to be different, new or improved. This is very much a case of the developers giving us about three hours of additional gruesome content to wade through, if you dare. Again, I have to say that playing on a PC with a large-monitor, totally in the dark, with headphones, and alone – it surely is still one of, if not THE scariest experience you can currently have in the gaming world. The only reason I’m not awarding nine-points in this review is because there was slightly disappointingly nothing particularly new or surprising in the DLC, just more of the same brilliant game. Can’t wait for whatever these guys do next.

    Jump scares are for Posies , jump scares are the lowest form of horror thats exist , The game itself is dry and should be considered horrorJump scares are for Posies , jump scares are the lowest form of horror thats exist , The game itself is dry and should be considered horror because the only aspect that is scary about this game is the over-usage of jump scares the developers squeezed in it , definitely an unintelligent format and a main concept of a game , this game cause serious ear ache and is only tolerable with an almost-mute volume , plot wise : the same as a generic POV horror movie with a shaky camera and some teenagers :] Expand
