    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.

Mas tirando isso nada a reclamar. Expand

Outlast 2 excels at scary but the story is strangely put together and might take you awhile to straighten out what is going on but Outlast 2 defines the horror genre with this stunning chapter to the Outlast series!

    На мой скромный взгляд геймплея игре не достает.
    Сделать дважды симулятор ходьбы и бега от безумцев - это как минимум странно.
    Для тех кто любит пощекотать себе нервы вполне пойдет, но ничем другим кроме страха быть застигнутым в этих "салочках" от монстров вас игр а не удивит и не испугает.
    За свой ценник вполне недурно , но лично мне странно, что ГГ вообще не в состоянии себя защитить...
    Возможность вырубить противника не является чем-то невероятным, просто скучно сидеть и только сидеть, а еще убегать.
    Надеюсь далее разработчик концепцию доработает.

    Seeing that this game came after Outlast , it got worse the environment got less scary and the only thing that happens is people chasing you.

    The level design of this game compared to the last one, is **** diabolical. There were a lot of levels where i got stuck for about 30 minutesThe level design of this game compared to the last one, is **** diabolical. There were a lot of levels where i got stuck for about 30 minutes because i didn't know what to do or where to go, the main character is way too afraid to fight 80 pound human skeletons cuz he is a **** This game is way too broken. And i feel like it was rushed pretty fast. DO NOT play this game. Expand
