  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.

The dlc does not dissapoint and for 5 pounds you can expect at least 2 hours of bone chilling enjoyment.

I watched Pewdiepie's playthrough of this particular DLC (as well as the actual game). There aren't too many companies that would dare dabble in the things Outlast's DLC had, it's even more shocking and creepy than the game itself. I loved it, and it absolutely is worth playing, especially if you like horror-story based games. 9.5/10 Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Um... The low critic review score really emphasizes the key concept of this game - love isn't for everyone ;). The developers are really talented in creating a creepy atmosphere. This is even more scary than the original one with a twisted mind of dark humour. Enjoy your trip, a romantic love story is awaiting for you.

    Really appreciate the guts of developers, who boost the game to such a high, without worrying about complaints of so many terrible, wierd and nasty scenes.

    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

    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...

Even though the scares are the same as the main Outlast game, there are a few moreOutlast Whistleblower is a perfect dlc for the main game. 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
