Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Pretty scary
Using every horror genre trick up its sleeve, Outlast is a very scary game that will make the user jump plenty of times. For those that are looking for a game full of jump scares, this should be right up their alley.
Pro Similar in style to Amnesia
If you enjoyed Amnesia, you'd enjoy Outlast, because it truly feels like the same game, only in a very different setting.
Con A little too reliant on jump scares, if that's not your thing
The atmosphere is dark and gritty, and being weaponless obviously makes you feel very vulnerable; but the main tactic the game relies on is jump scares, which may be a turn off for some.
Con Too easy
While the game is extremely scary, once the player learns the ins and outs, hiding from monsters is pretty easy to do. This makes advancing in the game something that is considered on the easy side.
