Review of Outlast (PS4): Score of 9

**This review originally appeard on Gamers Sphere, another site I write for**

Outlast is outstanding, and this is coming from a player who had never finished a true horror game before attempting Outlast. In fact, the only two other “horror” games I have ever played were Resident Evil 5, on which I think we can all agree was not scary at all, and Slender: The Eight Pages, which I never finished. Outlast, despite the fact that it scared me more times that I would like to admit, still managed to keep me coming back for more even though most of me never wanted to see the inside of Mount Massive Asylum ever again. In a nutshell, Outlast is the most suspenseful, intense game I have ever played. Its realism astounded me because I felt like I was truly on the run from a real enemy who could kill me at any moment; I was always fully immersed in the action. Outlast is one of my favorite games of all time, despite its few, very minor flaws.

It’s like a bizarre addiction that I hate, yet I long for. Outlast is truly a great game so far, and even though I’m not sure I can necessarily say being scared out of my pants is “fun,” Outlast truly accomplishes the task it sets out to do.
