    A perfect storm of gore, atmosphere, tension, scripted and unscripted scares and a memorable plot that dares to explore darkness that can hide within the human psyche, what more can be said? Playing the game on even just normal mode for seven and a half hours was an inviting challenge of fear, misery, adrenaline, and despair which when combined together spells out fun in my book. The closest thing I can give to a negative is that the ending is a severe cliffhanger, and I hope to hear that Red Barrels will be tying up the story one way or another. I’m in love with a monster, and her name is Outlast 2.

    Outlast II is the perfect sequel: it keeps and improves all the good aspects of the original. It's intense and very scary –so much so we think it's already a new horror classic.

    Stealth and pursuit haven’t changed much in Outlast 2, but it excels as a beautiful, brutal journey through extreme spiritual anxieties.

    If you liked Outlast, you will definitely love this sequel, which, though not perfect, is one of the most terrifying experiences ever.

    Rather than nerves of steel Outlast 2 requires a stomach of steel, because it’s more repugnant than scary. I’m not quite sure whether an emphasis on shocking with atrocities is a sign of lack of talent on developers’ part or there is some deeper meaning to all this gore, but Outlast 2 undoubtedly includes a couple of scenes that push the boundaries of interactive horror.

    Think of it as a ride through a really amazing haunted house: you don't have a ton of control and sometimes the ride breaks down for a moment or two, but it's basically guaranteed to leave you scared out of your mind.

    The long and short of it is that Outlast 2 is generic, stereotypical, and poorly designed. There was so much initial promise, with a great premise and some truly stunning visuals, but the onslaught of everything we’ve seen a hundred times before in horror games with much smaller budgets than this left me feeling bored, frustrated, and even vaguely insulted. Truly a sequel in name alone.

    We say that this is one of the most anticipated horror games of this year, clearly the game made a name for itself with the first one. OutlastWe say that this is one of the most anticipated horror games of this year, clearly the game made a name for itself with the first one. Outlast 2 takes the successful formula of the first game, shakes it up a bit to create a more immersive and frightening horror experience. Some how this game felt more difficult to complete(i played on normal difficulty and died like 100 times), however that's not bad point. The huge drawback for this game is vague story. Now that I have finished a game, and watched a story explanation I still don't understand a lot of things. I feel like that there is not strict line between the hallucinations and reality, which created a very confusing story. Also the game can become repetitive after hours into gameplay. Outlast 2 is an excellent game, with good gameplay, and tons of scares, however with a better story it would have achieved more. I still prefer the first game and i still hope that they release DLC which would clear up the messy plot. Expand

This game essentially comes down to running from point A to point B for 8 or so hours. Its a mixed bag of a game, i really don't know if this is a good game or not. Expand

    This game has an amazing graphic but sadly it’s too dark in the area, I can see nothing without turning on the camera every time. Finding aThis game has an amazing graphic but sadly it’s too dark in the area, I can see nothing without turning on the camera every time. Finding a way to run is very confusing because it’s too dark and area is too narrow, so every time I am stuck in a corner or a group of madman and dying and repeat the same process until I found my way out.

    Hiding in this game is useless, because enemy will find you anyway no matter where you hide, so you can run only to progress throughout the game. When you want to run to the checkpoint, the character is always exhausted and then you die which is frustrated sometime because you have to listen to the same dialogue and getting jump scare over and over, which won’t make you feel scared anymore.

    которые к концу игры начинают дико выводить из себя. Персонажи, кстати, не раскрыты вообще. Такое ощущение, что их добавили тупо для галочки. И появляются они крайне редко.
    Никаких интересных диалогов, никакого по настоящему безумного колорита от них не дождешься. Так же, в игре присутствует достаточно кривой стелс, который почему-то не работает в прятках с боссами. В принципе, стелс здесь и не нужен, потому что большую часть времени ГГ не прячется, он бегает.
    Таким образом, получился не тот ужасный супер-хоррор, который нам обещали, а обычный симулятор бега от алкашей с препятствиями.
