    Outlast: Whistleblower isn't quite as memorable as its parent game, but nonetheless provides plenty of grisly encounters and tells a more complete story.

    Whistleblower is a short DLC that surpasses the original Outlast game in terms of fear and atmosphere.

    Outlast: Whistleblower doesn’t muck around with a formula that’s already proven to work, and it subsequently succeeds at extending the spooky atmosphere of Red Barrels’ survival horror release. The new campaign accompanies the original game well, and even improves upon it in many ways. It also ups the ante in the terror department, hitting harder and more frequently, without relying too heavily on jump scares.

    It expands on the original background, and somehow manages to fix some of the few issues of the main chapter, namely linearity. A great DLC, which you should absolutely consider if you loved Outlast.

    Delivers more of the same gruesome locales and jump-scares as the core game, but doesn't introduce much new to the horror experience. Its sound design is still top notch, and it took me to some dark places that few video games ever dare to go.

    Taken as a fun Friday night of gaming, it’ll give you an excellent horror fix, leaving you shaken and strangely exhausted from the episodes of sustained suspense.

    Red Barrels delivers again. Found it even better than the original. Grisly, Hardcore, in your face horror. Love the setting and theRed 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. Dead Space is the only one I can think of in the last 10 years (Amnesia has nothing on Outlast). To American developers: There are still mature gamers out there! Can't wait to see what else Red Barrels cooks up. Highly recommended. Expand

    Outlast Whistleblower is a great add-on and really connects the plot of the original together. The DLC introduces some terrifying newOutlast Whistleblower is a great add-on and really connects the plot of the original together. The DLC introduces some terrifying new characters; One specifically that I believe to be the best character yet in the game. The length is questionable, only running in between 1-2 hours, possibly longer if you take it slow. The game looks fantastic on PS4, and the sound is once again top notch. One frustrating thing about Whistleblower is that sometimes your aren't sure where to go. This leads to an enemy cornering you and forcing you to start over from a checkpoint which can really take the scare factor out of the game. Nonetheless, this expansion had me cringing on the first playthrough. I definitely recommend this game to anyone who was a fan of Outlast, it is well worth $9. Expand

    A sequel and a prequel put together that in my opinion was better than the main game.
    Whistleblower lets you explore more of the asylum, plus you get to learn more about Murkoff and what they do to their patients and you also get to see people who aren't variants. The story is much better and the ending reveals the true ending to the main game, the final chapter of Mount Massive.
    I highly recommend you play this AFTER you've played the main game, otherwise it won't make much sense.
    Only bad thing is the map design, it's one of those games where it takes a while to find where you suppose to go and when you find it, makes you think "How did I not notice that??!" It could ruin the experience a bit if your walking around endlessly for ten minutes when there's a secret hole in the wall you have to climb through.

And I didn't like that the cannibal issue is never resolved. Finally, the game could've been an hour or two longer. I think I finished it in about 2 1/2 hours and that was taking my time. Still, the environment was great, and really creepy for the most part. Overall, 8/10 from me. I hope they'll make at least one more DLC for this game. Expand
