I wanted to like this game. I really did. I didn't hold it to a higher standard, but the same one that Outlast and Whistleblower placed.

This, to me, is nothing like the previous Outlast. Whereas before, I was terrified of being found, and lurked in the shadows and dark places to avoid being spotted by Mt. Massive's residents, here I mostly just was shouting "♥♥♥♥ it" and running like an idiot. The reason is, the game has an odd sense of punishment, and restart in place. Don't know the exact, tiny, minute place to go to? Time to die and start all over again!

The AI has some sort of godlike psychic knowledge as to where you are at all times, which makes the game almost unenjoyable. Chris Walker in Outlast ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off, sure, but that lumbering hulk had to FIND me. I'd have entire segments where I spent maybe 20 minutes in what could possibly be a 1 minute encounter sneaking, and he would never even know I was in the area - I was terrified! Here, you have a 7 ft Death Nun honing in on your position for the entire encounter like you're screaming the Gettysburg Address at the top of your lungs.

The game slows down horribly in the third "act", if you will, with the final level area being the most horrible, sloggish design I've had to deal with in a decent horror game.

As for the storyline? Hope you don't miss a single scrap of paper, otherwise you'll miss the entire plot about it being tied to the original Outlast, and making all of the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t make sense!

Visually, the game is GORGEOUS. The voice acting is top notch, and the music (while I enjoyed Outlast's a bit more) was good. The character designs are interesting, and there's a hint of an amazing plot, but it's told so poorly that by the end of the game I just wanted it to be over.

All in all, wait until the game goes on sale, or you get it as a gift. At $30, it's not that bad of a pricepoint, just don't expect Outlast 1 / Whistleblower from it.
