“Easily one of the scariest games I've ever played”
9.5/10 – Bloody Disgusting

“"...what (Outlast) can definitely claim to be is a great game... It’ll also intrigue, terrify and surprise you. Outlast is not an experiment in how games can be scary, it’s an exemplification...”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Outlast is the perfect nightmare. ...it's absolutely petrifying. I love it”
4.5/5 – Joystiq

About This Game

Hell is an experiment you can't survive in Outlast, a first-person survival horror game developed by veterans of some of the biggest game franchises in history. As investigative journalist Miles Upshur, explore Mount Massive Asylum and try to survive long enough to discover its terrible secret... if you dare.

Synopsis:

In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, recently re-opened by the “research and charity” branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation, the asylum has been operating in strict secrecy… until now.

Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, independent journalist Miles Upshur breaks into the facility, and what he discovers walks a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something else entirely. Once inside, his only hope of escape lies with the terrible truth at the heart of Mount Massive.

Outlast is a true survival horror experience which aims to show that the most terrifying monsters of all come from the human mind.

Features:

  • True Survival Horror Experience: You are no fighter - if you want to survive the horrors of the asylum, your only chance is to run... or hide
  • Immersive Graphics: AAA-quality graphics give players a detailed, terrifying world to explore
  • Hide and Sneak: Stealth-based gameplay, with parkour-inspired platforming elements
  • Unpredictable Enemies: Players cannot know when - and from where - one of the asylum’s terrifying inhabitants will finally catch up to them
  • Real Horror: Outlast’s setting and characters are inspired by real asylums and cases of criminal insanity

Warning:

Outlast contains intense violence, gore, graphic sexual content, and strong language. Please enjoy.

I spent my whole time playing this gaming constantly telling myself that I was okay. It's a great atmospheric horror game. At times I was sitting with all my butt muscles clenched because of how scared I was for the character and how much I wanted them to survive. The other thing this game excels at is giving you little breaks from the spooks. For example, while searching in the Asylum for more batteries I came across a dude who seem to be jacking off in a corner . Which gave me a good laugh.

However, I despise the ending of this game. Perhaps it's not edgy to have a good ending for your character, but goodness putting time into helping a character survive only to have all of it flushed down the toilet is kind of a let down. Other than that though ten outta ten!!!

Now when I passed this game, I want to express my opinion:

- The game is really interesting and is passed on one breath
- The game perfectly conveys the eerie atmosphere, but in general it is not terrible
- Interesting story line that deystvitlno tightens and you and you want to quickly find out the whole story
- Documents found in the game really describe something interesting
- And of course the original characters
What I did not like !:
- At the end of the game is already tired of the constant darkness
- Characters that suddenly pop up from communication angle is not afraid
- Personally, I did not like that in the penultimate difficulty at the beginning of the game is almost no battery, and at the end of the other way around too much, but they are no longer needed
- Constantly come from someone running away very quickly and navigate the terrain, but because of communication darkness to many places to be seen
- Well, as for me not very interesting ending
My rating 7.5 / 10

Eu era Ateu, mas depois que joguei esse game eu me converti. A cada instante eu pedia a Deus pra me dar forças e tranquilidade pra aguentar Outlast até o fim.

I was atheist , but then I played this game I now believe in Jesus Christ and God . Every time I asked God to give me strength and peace to endure Outlast to the end.

By far, one of the scariest games I've ever played, and hands-down one of the most memorable gaming experiences I've had in a long time.

A little repetitive at parts, but all-in-all, great game.

Main game is around 3-4 hours and the DLC is around 1-2 hours.
This game is truely an amazing horror game and will totally disturb you!
my only issue is that this game is way too high of a price for only 4-6 hours of gameplay.
The main game should be around 10-15$ and the dlc should be around 5$
But that is not too big of a deal because It goes on sale pretty often.
I highly recommend this for horror fans!

This game scared the living crap out of me, i recommend playing it only at night with headphones, it really adds up to the entire atmosphere. I really like to watch old scary movies, and this game reminded me of that. So if you want to know if you can scream like a little girl definitely try this game :)

An atmospheric and hauntingly impactful campaign with efficiently programmed AI, effective disturbing imagery, a great concept at it's core, a verity of interesting characters, simple yet apropiate game machanics, awesome sound design and inventive methods of scaring the player outside of jump scares. (Which are surprisingly well timed anyway) Sure the final segment is rather anticlimatic story wise, however the difficulty levels retain a riviting sense of pace in the gameplay. An absolutely fantastic horror experience, play with the lights off! - 9/10
