Here’s the bottom line if you don’t have time to read the full review:

Pros

  • Unique and effective camcorder mechanic.
  • Mostly varied environments.
  • The first half of the game.

Cons

  • Enemies that stop being scary and start being annoying.
  • Heavy reliance on jump scares.
  • The last bit of the game just kind of runs out of steam and leaves you with a disappointing ending.

Final Score: 8/10

Outlast is by no means a bad game, again, especially the first half or so. It just kind of runs out of steam near the end, that’s all. If you’re a horror fan, definitely check it out, it’s still a really good game, it’s just flawed in ways that can’t make me put it up there with Amnesia or Silent Hill 2.
