About

Cinematic gameplay is used to make a stylistic point, and this psychological horror game performs just that. Outlast follows the story of investigative journalist Miles Upshur, that got the lead on the inhuman experiments, performed on the asylum patients. Outlast forces players to run away from danger, simply because there is no combat system. All Miles can do is to document what is happening inside the Mount Massive Asylum. Players do not have a flashlight, only a night vision camera, which constantly requires batteries in order to function. Miles will be pursued through the halls, rooms, yards and enclosed laboratories by distressed and aggressive inhabitants. Over the course of the game, players will have to solve puzzles by locating and collecting items and travel through the Asylum with realistic movement animation and horror sting sound effect, in order to make players sympathize with the protagonists.

This is quite short game driven by story. Closer to the end it became repetitive but still it was enough for me to finish it and have fun.
«That Ending!»
Aside from the maniacal doctor encounter, Outlast isn't that scary. There are tense moments abound, but it's never reaaally scary. Those tense moments do prove to be pretty fun and even humorous. A friend of mine described Outlast as a 'haunted house simulator,' but I don't think this is true. There are some moments that feel that way, but really the chases feel like chases, and duping the abominations of the asylum is a lot of fun. The story is a bit muddled and told through notes, which I never really read. By the end, I had a basic, yet confused understanding of what was going on. The climax is lame, but everything building up to that is pretty fun.  All in all, I recommend it. 
«Sit Back and Relax»
After a couple of persecutions and screamers you grow immune to all of it just because there aren't any more mechanics, and the story doesn't improve either. At all.
«Game over at last!»
