  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

    Red Barrels delivers again. Found it even better than the original. Grisly, Hardcore, in your face horror. Love the setting and the characters. There are some scenes that will stick with you. Especially later on. I feel like I am reading a horror novel. Except living it. Imagine playing something like this on the Oculus Rift someday..how amazing and frightening would that be? Good to see there are still companies out there willing to do games this extreme. The original Dead Space is the only one I can think of in the last 10 years. To American developers: There are still mature gamers out there! Can't wait to see what else Red Barrels cooks up. Highly recommended. Expand

    Kudos to Red Barrels for a DLC that improves in every way on an already great game. This is how DLC should be done. Well worth the price of admission.

    I though Outlast was amazing and gave it a 9/10. 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.

    Warning:Don't play this game at night with lights off and headphones on.
    This game is even more scarier than original and links the story
    holes that left behind by the original outlast game.Overall it is a short heart pounding adventure that keeps you at the edge of the seat... Expand

    this dlc was just more outlast, which isn't a bad thing at all in my opinion. there were a few new environments and the story in the dlc was a little bit more interesting and a few of the new characters you are trying to escape from are very disturbing. there were a few things that were a bit negative like the fact that you are running more than hiding which takes away some of the tension and that the ending isn't all that satisfying just like the first one, but hey if you liked out last you will definitely like this dlc Expand

    Jump 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
