May 1, 2017This game was so much fun to play. Something about being scared and literally running for your life makes for such a good game. With plot twists along the way that keep the story fresh there is no lack of entertainment within the game. Red Barrels really knows how to get under your skin. Play the game, you will understand. The dark undertones of the game set up the story throughout and constantly make you think wtf, yet you still want more. Buy Outlast 2, be scared, you won’t be disappointed.
Apr 24, 2017The production values of Outlast 2 are head and shoulders above those of its predecessor and the gameplay has been developed and refined to near perfection. Only the odd frustrating moment of trial and error sours the experience, but the rest of the game is so engrossing that you won’t let the thought of them linger in your mind.
May 12, 2017Outlast 2 takes back the very best from Red Barrels: tension, slaughter and pure survival. It brings us a well-drawn and complex script, starred by Blake Langermann, a character to empathize with. Despite its few playable errors, Outlast 2 and Sullivan Knoth’s sect will manage to sneak into our darkest nightmares.
Apr 25, 2017A truly frightening game that has surpassed Outlast in its graphic content and heart-stopping action, I can safely say I'm never leaving the house again.
Apr 29, 2017Outlast 2 isn’t a bad game, sure it has its moments that can feel terribly unfair, but in this day and age, that’s something you should expect from a horror game. The story on offer is fantastic and any fan of horror would be kicking themselves if they didn’t try out the gritty and thrilling experience that is found within Outlast 2. From the enemies, to the environment, to the blood and guts and to the scares, everything in Outlast 2 adds to the unique experience that this game brings.
Apr 26, 2017Controversially written and unflinchingly scary, Outlast 2 is a remarkable game that solidifies itself and its franchise as one of the greats in the genre. Although it gets slowed down by infrequent issues with AI and sequences that will feel familiar to series veterans, the end result is an atmospheric, dread-inducing, and contentiously biting narrative horror. Even more, above all of those attributes it needed to be terrifying, and holy hell is it terrifying.
Apr 28, 2017Outlast 2 has some problems that left me frustrated for most of the first half of the game, as well as some questionable segments later in the game. Even with that said, it also offers a gripping story revolving around the main character and religion, that left much to be interpreted and theorized, yet kept me interested throughout the game. The gameplay won't wow you, but it can offer some solid scares, and will definitely provide players with some disturbing scenery. If you enjoy the horror genre or liked the first Outlast, then you most likely will like Outlast 2. If not, then you may easily get frustrated or turned off by the experience.

La historia de Outlast 2 es la hostia, hay mucha gente que se queja que no se entiende a la primera y estaría de acuerdo si eso lo hubiesen hecho sin querer, pero no creo que sea así, Outlast 2 no es un juego que te vaya explicando paso a paso lo que ocurre en la trama, y eso me gusta, tmb te digo que si te dedicas a explorar en busca de documentos (por cierto me encantan los documentos y demás, por los temas que tocan: La manipulación de Knotch, hasta donde llegan para demostrar su fé, y como se extrañan al no ver respuesta, etc.) o grabaciones para escuchar un comentario de Blake donde aclara algunos puntos, otra cosa esq expliquen cosas importantes en los comics, eso ya es un truco demasiado vago que no tiene defensa. Pero hablemos del juego y no de la historia, bien, para ser un juego de terror no da tanto miedo, es decir Outlast 2 tiene muy buena atmosfera y demas pero este juego es mas bien dar sustos, porq este juego usa demasiados screames, entonces no creo que pases terror mas bien te dara un sustillo y poco mas. Otra de las cosas de que Outlast 2 no da tanto miedo es porq es muy sencillo, me lo he jugado en dificil y aún así no he tenido mucha complicacion en pasarmelo mas que nada porq cuando mueres se te recarga toda la bateria y la vida, haciendo que no tenga ninguna dificultad, ya que el juego es demasiado lineal en unos casos, solamente tienes que saber a donde ir y no tendrás complicación. Pero aún así es un juego disfrutable por todo lo que he dicho antes te lo pasas bien jugando, el poco tiempo que dura el juego... CONCLUSIÓN: Outlast 2 quizas tenga algunos fallos en su dificultad y la manera con lo que esta hecho pero es un buen juego recomendable pero muy corto y muy divertido.… Expand
May 4, 2017While this game recycles the familiar horror tropes of the previous installment, it does somewhat redeem itself with some of the best horrorWhile this game recycles the familiar horror tropes of the previous installment, it does somewhat redeem itself with some of the best horror imagery you can see in a video game. the characters are less memorable than in the previous game partly because you do not see them too often and some of them are killed within a few minutes of being introduced but this is also balanced out by a few more memorable characters.
Red Barrels has really outdone themselves on the graphic content this game provides and i found myself looking away at a few parts because of the level of semi-realistic violence this game provides.
the biggest downside for most people with this game is the story and the ending. many people seem to misinterpret the story only because they miss out on a key feature the game provides. In the original Outlast game, there were pieces of collectable paper scrap strewn about the world which gave the player insight into some of the characters and settings. in this game, collecting those scraps of paper is pretty integral if one wishes to understand the story at all. this game also provides a few sections where your character will record some footage which can be reviewed to provide even more information on the story.
casual players of this game who do not have a care for these things will leave this game disappointed whereas those who take the time to read what they find will understand a little more about the disjointed narrative.
in summary, Outlast 2 is a decent horror game, not the most memorable and with a story which is confusing to some, but also can provide the visceral thrills of great horror games like its predecessor.… Expand

More anxiety than Horror
In Outlast 2 you play as a cameraman working with your wife doing your investigative journalism thing, getting to the bottom of the possible murder of a pregnant woman
And then your helicopter crashes, you can’t find your wife, and you spend the rest of the game trying to find her…
Outlast 2 is more open feeling than the claustrophobic original…
While at the same time much more linear feeling
But I found it to be a lot more stressful…
Instead of 4 hours, Outlast 2 clocks in at a little less than 7…
Which felt to be a bit of a mistake...
It feels like it drags on forever, mostly thanks to the games awful pacing…
This is still la survival horror game, collect batteries for your camera, use that camera to record things and as a light source, collect bandages to heal yourself when you’re hurt and get through everything the game throws at you..
Hide under beds, and in barrels and lockers...
But the game is missing those tense moments the original had…
I feel outlast 2 throws way too many enemies at your way too often…
This is where the pacing issue comes in...
You never have down time, you never have time to soak in the environment and let it creep you out… because beyond the first chapter the game is throwing multiple enemies for you to deal with around every corner... and it isn’t tense or scary, it’s annoying...
Getting through sections of the game is frustrating...
You never feel like stealth is a real option...
It never really feels like it works…
Enemey detection is way too sensitive and I felt like they always knew where I was
and I felt like I had to trigger enemies, make them chase me, and run around the map to get past sections…
And some points in the game you’re forced to deal with situations like this
and it just never stops, making the game feel like a chore, especially in the final few chapters..
The game is gorgeous though, and creepy
it’s full of jump scares and surprises, especially with the random transitions between your location in this religious cult and a catholic school…
The game never becomes predictable.
And is definitely worth seeing through to the end,
I don’t want to set any expectations, but I’ll just say it’s better than the original outlasts ending.
Outlast 2 has a lot going for it, as does the series in general...
I just wish it stuck to the one enemy at a time formula the original had... it made moments tense...
instead of throwing multiple enemies at you that you cant deal with and never letting you breathe…
Again, I was more annoyed by outlast 2 than I was scared by it…
The Demo was a more enjoyable experience for me than the actual game
I give Outlast 2
a 7.5/10… Expand

I don't thinkIt's scary, gory and has a consistent narrative theme throughout. The school sections are as great as I remember them being. I don't think they're as well implemented into the plot as they could be, but it offers a fascinating environmental adjustment, just as you feel you're getting too settled. Certainly, some sections are more interesting than others, and a lot of sections are tedious to play though. However, my biggest criticism, and I feel more vindicated after playing for a second time, is how much of the gameplay devolves into trial and error. It really is disappointing. There were bits I remembered, avoided a mistake (death) I'd made previously, but I was still caught out far too often. It's the level design, signposting is necessary to maintain momentum in the faster paced sections, and the game a does a terrible job at designing its levels in a way that allows for such fluidity. Even when the game grinds to a halt, sometimes I was incredibly unclear on what it wanted for me. (There's a section where you drop down from some stairs and you're trapped by bushes, fences, cacti from each side. I thought I'd escape the level accidently, but no, through the shrubbery there was a little hole in the fence that I'm sure caught me out in the first playthrough.)
I'd recommend the game for its ambitious plot and genuinely scary moments, but it's also a game more disappointing than I remember it being.… Expand

Some of the level design was good and open but eventually it just got tiring. The main antagonist is cool at first but then gets just weird. So disappointing as well.… Expand
