For the RPG, story telling elements alone I’d recommend it… for being set in space it gets bonus points… for being just a well fleshed out world that is quite striking to look at and to inhabit it gets a hearty recommendation. If you like RPG’s then this is definitely worth checking out!
A great expansion! Easily equal to the best parts of the base game, and really lifts the game up. I really enjoyed playing this, and highly recommend getting this expansion if you are a fan of the base game.
Das ist ein echt starkes DLC, die Atmosphäre ist sehr nice, es erzählt eine gute Story und hat einen gerade Faden. Es wird nicht direkt weniger Wert auf Dialoge gelegt sondern mehr auf entscheidende Dialoge, die sind dann einfach länger als im Hauptspiel dafür gibt es nicht so ultra viele und man hat dadurch längere Gameplay Passagen, was mir sehr gut gefällt.
It is sad that Obsidian didn’t take the chance to shake things up but at the same time, anyone that enjoyed The Outer Worlds is going to get a kick out of this 5ish hour adventure that is chock full of great characters and snappy writing.
Peril on Gorgon is simply more Outer Worlds. It feels like a natural addition and fits right in with the rest of the game, while offering a slightly different tone in terms of story. The main quest is lengthy and replayable, but there’s not much in terms of side quests or gear.
Players who are looking for more The Outer Worlds will likely be happy with Peril on Gorgon, but people who were hoping for something as dramatic and deadly as Fallout: New Vegas' DLC offerings like Dead Money or Lonesome Road may be left wanting. It's a great addition to a quality title, but it's not different enough to justify the separation from the main game's story, and overall Peril on Gorgon feels more like a side quest which could have been easily included in the original version of The Outer Worlds rather than costing players an extra $14.99 USD.
I'm actually just wanting to rate the base game although I do own the DLCs. Another 'meh' title that simply doesn't rival games like Mass Effect or Witcher 3 or even the buggy Fallout 4 (I actually love Fallout 4 despite the bugs) and Cyberpunk (that's right against the lack lustre Cyberpunk, this game is poor). List of poor effort and game thinness:
- Very little customisable equipment in comparison to other games.
- Very limited character development options. Go back to the 1980's and 90's and hit games like Baldur's Gate, Lands of Lore etc and this game is blown to pieces by comparison).
- Very boring, long winded conversations with only a handful of NPCs (the world is very thinly filled and if there is a conversation at all, it's a dead end).
- Very dull and 'rinse cycle repeat' RPG 'choices' e.g. first choice, save town a or town b. Turns out both sides are **** (who would have seen that cliche coming) with no option for a 'good guy' solution because despite everything you have to do, the conversations are dead end and you can't use negotiation skills to say things like 'hey, I just picked your side because you came across as the compassionate ones, therefore, don't be a **** and help to save everybody or I'll go back and shut everything down'.
- To reaffirm the above- I AM SERIOUSLY TIRED OF GAMES THAT MAKE EVERY DECISION A DARK CHOICE OF CRAP, CRAP OR A TINY BIT LESS CRAP DEPENDING ON OPINION. It's boring, unrealistic and it isn't 'dark, clever and mysterious' its god awful stupidity. Computer games SHOULD NOT DEPRESS PEOPLE!
- The colour palette is interesting and they have clearly gone for their own look here. It's a personal preference thing but why does my dude need bluish highlights in his blonde hair?!?!?
- Fighting is pretty monotonous and quite dull.
All in all, it's hard to think of a more 'high calibre' poverty stricken game. Maybe Fallout 76?
SummaryThe Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon takes place on the Gorgon asteroid, which was the site of one of the most ambitious scientific undertakings in Halcyon: the development and synthesis of Adrena-Time, a drug intended to improve the productivity of workers across the Halcyon colony.
