After the disappointing sequel to Amnesia, it was time to play a give that lives up to the genre Horror/Survival. Luckily there was Halloween sale on Steam and this game was put in the basket.
The game in a nutshell: you are a reporter with a hand camera as a deadly weapon. You want to investigate an asylum where supposedly experiments were performed on the nut jobs locked in there. Getting in is a piece of cake, but getting out, that's what the whole game is about.
The macabre atmosphere is overwhelming at start. You continuously look through the lens of you camera, because it is equipped with night vision. This green/black tones add to the darkness of your environment, making it easy to poop your pants whenever a freak comes dangling from the sealing or start chasing you in a hall way. But in the end, this scary stuff also loses its effect if you are being chased around for the umpteenth time and all you want is the chase to be over and continue.
Nonetheless, a great addition to the Horror/Survival genre and let's hope the Outlast 2, which is currently in the making, continues along this path.
