Outlast 2 is a horror game that takes place in Temple Gate, a town far from civilization, where you meet Sullivan Knoth and his followers.
Pro Environment feels open
Outlast 2 is more open and has much more functionality in-game than its ancestor and many other horror games. Tall grass, rivers, labyrinths etc make it easier and more exciting to hide from enemies. Though these structures make monsters harder to notice aswell.
Pro Scary gameplay
Using every horror genre trick up its sleeve, Outlast is a very scary game that will make the player jump plenty of times. The monsters in Outlast 2 look very creepy with a lot of disgusting details added. Even just the environment and sounds will keep your adrenaline levels up. For those that are looking for a creepy game full of jump scares, this should be right up their alley.
Con Scripted chases - a lot of trial and error escaping
Quite often you find yourself escaping from an enemy in a scripted chase. You will have to get to a specific predetermined location to escape the enemy. This means a lot of trial and error - choosing different paths and dying, until you find the right one.
Con Character movement is not authentic
Though the game feels very real, the main character's movement sometimes ruins it. Though he can jump over ledges and climb over small walls, he sometimes can not move over tiny objects - this can frustrate the player and make the game feel less real.
