    Move over, Amnesia.

    It's uncommon for someone to finish a game in one sitting. However, this is one of those games. Yes, this game is somewhat average in length, 5-6 odd hours, however I believe it is the the most atmospheric game of 2013, ... Read Full Review

    The pinnacle of the unreal engine. Might want to wear a diaper

    The first paragraph is all about how nice and well optimized the graphics are so if you don't care just skip ahead. This game is amazing. Easily the best and most detailed use of the unreal engine i have ever seen. Fi... Read Full Review

    Outlast is definitely one of the best horror games ever!

    Today i finished playing outlast, and all i can say is that, it was a blast... The story is actually not bad but in the end it gets a little bit messy, but, if you understand it, it's awesome. The gameplay is absolutel... Read Full Review

    Great Indie Horror game!

    Must say that it's sometimes extremely intense. What gamespot , ign and game trailers exactly say about the game-play is a big question mark for me. Really it's not that repetitive, it's not very different from other g... Read Full Review

    An awesome game, intense thriller.

    People keep throwing the word "Horror" out there. I don't think that's the right word, it starts off as your standard horror game. The main character finds a mysterious place, unearthing twisted dark secrets, but later o... Read Full Review

    Amnesia, you have a new rival!

    I always find that certain genres, or types of games within those genres, that hold the biggest appeal for gamers like me are never tackled on often enough. To be fair, this could be the play-it-safe card for fear of bei... Read Full Review

    A fun game while it lasted, but not for the reasons you'd expect.

    I've been looking forward to outlast for awhile now and hooked in as soon as I could. Regrettably I'd like to warn people that its not really all it's cracked up to be (by the horror fans who insta 10 it) For starters, ... Read Full Review

    Only the second game ever to scare me.

    Since the original Silent Hill, which I loved, I've played many a survival horror game. Subsequent Silent Hills, the Resident Evil series, the Clocktower series, the Fatal Frame series, etc. etc. I've also played a numbe... Read Full Review

    FUN

    You want to play this game. One might think it's no fun without any guns but it actually adds something new that hasn't really been done well yet. Add puzzles, great sound effects, scary monsters and it's a blast. You re... Read Full Review
