    How did whistleblower get a 6.4, while this gets an 8.3?

    Fun game that is unbelievably terrifying for me. The ending is poor and while the game has a breathtaking atmosphere and setting, the game has poor navigation and TERRIBLE running scenes. Game can be so frustrating

  • Sabadabad

    I'm sorry but this game isn't half as good as Outlast 1! Not scary at all, no jump scares, stupidly repetitive, bad story and the navigation was beyond crap, also that pathetic part where you have to ride that raft across the river made me fall asleep... Literally. The first one was way better!

    residentevil4life 14 days ago

    i thought the 1st one was "pretty good" but nothing compared to Alien Isolation but LAWD this game is definitely almost on par given the crazy amount of times enemies will start a chase sequence and like in real life you only have seconds to figure out if that door leads to a dead or not. As the subject matter its definitely one of the most disturbing topics of religion ive seen in a horror game since the Dead Space series.

    Hold up, they gave outlast a 7.8 when they reviewed it, so they are saying outlast two is better than one, which I don't agree on at all. THIS IS WHY IGN NEEDS TO STICK TO ONE REVIEWER, different people have different opinions!

    8.3 little less than i expected -

    ign - navigation issues

    what this is a horror survival strategy game
    we have to find our own way out

  • Federico Aguirre

    For me it's a 7 in har and a 7.5 in normal. Excellent graphics and sound but shitty gameplay and ending. I loved the firts one, this is just a meh+.

    I didn't mind it, was cool, was intense, definitely has more horror elements, pretty good story as well! But fucken hell it was frustrating aye, even on normal mode haha. The first Outlast game was, and is awesome!!! Bought the Trinity pack couple of weeks ago, Outlast, WistleBlower and Outlast II.
    I give the game fair ratings
    Genre - 10/10Gameplay - 7/10Characters - 10/10

    What's up with ign always assigning random score? 8.3, 9.2, 8.8, 9.6, etc. how come they didn't just give this an 8.5? What's the point of reducing 0.2?

  • nodnarb power

    pacing issues?? was the game to fast that you couldn't handle it ign?? they didn't rate it M for mature for nothing

  • The Fearmoths
    The Fearmoths 3 months ago

    I found the game way too dark and the need to use the camera backlighting so much ruined the experience for me. I loved the first game but couldn't get into this one.

  • AgentGustavo
    AgentGustavo 3 months ago

    RE7 is 7.7 and this is 8.3? Really dumb. Just look at those textures, no VR, shitty story, nothing unique. If RE7 is a 7.7, this is a 3.8 at the most.

  • Mike O'Hara

    i love how some people hate it for being thematically different, but if it's similar to the original people would still complain.

  • Chef Danger
    Chef Danger 3 months ago

    Whoever said this game is twice the size of the first game and it's DLC combined is sorely mistaken. It is MUCH longer. It took me around 9 hours to finish Outlast and Whistleblower. I've been playing this for at least that long and I'm only about halfway through chapter 2, 4 and a half to go. This has gotta be at least a 25 hour game.

  • Harry Daly
    Harry Daly 3 months ago

    School parts are good. Most of the game is repetitive and awful. You will be doing the same Chase over and over because the game doesn't make it clear on where it wants you to go! Checkpoints are awful 3/10. I'm disappointed with the game.

  • Kelly French
    Kelly French 3 months ago +1

    outlast 2 is far better than the first one IMO more techniques, hiding spots alot harder and is way scarier outlast 1 is a great game but after you beat it, it just loses its scary feeling, marta, the heretics, the school monster, val scared the shit out of me and it still does yeah maybe the story for outlast 1 is better but that's it plus its the same over and over every time you play it it was easy asf even on insane mode outlast 2 is a pain even on normal outlast 2 10/10 outlast 1 7/10

    Been playing the game and i'm almost at the end. Honestly guys, this game makes RE7 look and sound like a comedy. My one complain about this game is that it misrepresents christians a lot. I am christian so I know. I hope that when people play it they understand that the game is only fiction and take the context of the story into account, as to understand why characters in the story are the way they are.

      Kenshin Himura. I played through Alien Isolation so many times, i like it so much. The controller seemed more immersive to me but i played with keyboard and mouse anyway because I like the feel of keyboard mouse in general. But I would advise the controller.

    • Kenshin Himura
      Kenshin Himura 3 months ago

      +Seb B i bought the alien anthology recently. I've seen the first two films. I'm going to see the other two before covenant. I also started playing the game. I've only played a couple of hours. It's fantastic. It's crazy to think it came out 3 years ago. I bought the arkham knight ps4 bundle in 2015. That's probably why i never played AI.

    The game isn't bad but slightly disappointing
    It's more running then hiding near the end of the game you actually run for 3 minutes (in my time) and you'll die alot. Scary as usual best parts by far are the school and the ending...


  • Snow
    Snow 3 months ago

    My only problem with the game is the frustrating parts, running away from Marta and such. Other than that, it was alright.

    8.3 really? It's so repetitive, it's just running away and being chased allllll game. The only decent part of the game is in the school (which is very good) you constantly die and the ending is just awful. 5/10

  • Buffytvgp-Bloons Battles & More!

    the ending was ok what is she on about?

    I played RE7. Enjoyed it's gameplay, jumpscares, combat. Somehow not so much on the story. So will this game make it better?

    NOW HOW COULD YOU GUYS POSSIBLY RATE THIS GAME AN 8?!? The graphics and its soundtrack were outstanding but the gameplay is sooo repetitive and the ending was the most disappointing ending I've seen in the history of horror game endings.

    Outlast 2 was boring asf. I had to force my self to finish this game. Such a disappointed, the only thing I liked
    Was the graphics of the school. That's it.. plus it's not scary at all. Only 1 jump scare made me twitch.. that's it.

    Am i the only one who compared this more to RE4 than 7? Both take place in a forgotten, rural village ruled by one crazy man with pictures of him framed on the villagers walls. If you told me they took place in the same country i'd believe you (RE4 was spain)

  • Matthew's Couch
    Matthew's Couch 3 months ago +1

    Sorry but this game does a poor job of informing the player through its game design. Thus, failures in this game are cheap and totally frustrating since it does not properly communicate the intended messages in which the player could flow through the game at a pace which makes playing the game tense yet still enjoyable. IGN was way too forgiving with their 8.3. And I thought Outlast 1 was the overrated one..

    Something about this game just isn't good. Outlast was amazing but I do not feel the magic with Outlast 2. No suspense, not scared, not having fun hiding from the AI. They always see you and its always a chase. It just isn't fun. The actual game should have taken place in buildings that look like the school. The desert woods asthetic is cheap. Its not a terrible game... it just doesn't capture what made the first game fun. The hide and seek cat and mouse stuff was fun. Not intense chases through the woods where you die like 10 times in five minutes before realizing some easy way to get by quickly. Whistleblower had lots of drawn out hiding parts that really helped you get to know your enemy. They were intimate. They were suspenseful. They built immense atmosphere. Outlast 2 feels like they were trying to put too much in the game.They tried to make it too different. It isn't a AAA title. The first one wasn't either. The first one was magic though. Perfct formula. This genre isn't supposed to be complicated. Frictional got it perfect with soma. Pt demo was outstanding. Allision road alpha footage... I don't know what outlast 2 missed but it just doesn't feel fun.
