  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.

    Wow. Just..Wow. I'm not so much scared as I am just shocked about all that went down in this dlc. You play as Waylon Park, the man you mayWow. Just..Wow. I'm not so much scared as I am just shocked about all that went down in this dlc. You play as Waylon Park, the man you may have noticed in the original game that sent the email to Miles Upshur (the protagonist you play as in the original part of the game) saying that he needs to check out the asylum because there is some crazy **** going on there. You see through the eyes Of Waylon who is working at the asylum when things go to..well...sh*t. You. like Old boy MIles, you try to escape using nothing but a camera you found to record things going on and to see in the dark, incappable of combat yet again. Through Waylon's eyes you adventure through different parts of the asylum you were not able to explore as MIles, and even get to go back through areas you did go through as Miles. The night Waylon is trying to escape is also the same night that MIles arrives. Now you don't get to see Miles but if you've played his story...well you know what winds up happening with him. You'll see many familiar faces of the insane patients. and even dealing with the dreaded Walrider. compared to the original story I can tell you this DLC is alot gruesomer, it delves deeper into whats going on at the asylum. I promise there will be moments where you'll be saying "WTF" making this dlc far more better. I enjoyed this DLC and highly recommend it to anyone who loved Outlast and are looking for one more good adventure through a asylum dealing with INSANE patients...and the WALRIDER. Expand

    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.

Even though the scares are the same as the main Outlast game, there are a few more terrifying moments which were intense throughout. I would of expected it to be a bit longer, and to make it less frustrating at certain moments because it takes away a bit of the experience. The sounds and the atmosphere are still perfect, same with the night vision effect. Overall, i would give this a 7/10. 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 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
