The Outer Worlds is a new single-player first-person sci-fi RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Private Division.

In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation on a colonist ship that was lost in transit to Halcyon, the furthest colony from Earth located at the edge of the galaxy, only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy it. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

Key Features
The player-driven story RPG: In keeping with the Obsidian tradition, how you approach The Outer Worlds is up to you. Your choices affect not only the way the story develops; but your character build, companion stories, and end game scenarios.

You can be flawed, in a good way: New to The Outer Worlds is the idea of flaws. A compelling hero is made by the flaws they carry with them. While playing The Outer Worlds, the game tracks your experience to find what you aren't particularly good at. Keep getting attacked by Raptidons? Taking the Raptiphobia flaw gives you a debuff when confronting the vicious creatures, but rewards you with an additional character perk immediately. This optional approach to the game helps you build the character you want while exploring Halcyon.

Lead your companions: During your journey through the furthest colony, you will meet a host of characters who will want to join your crew. Armed with unique abilities, these companions all have their own missions, motivations, and ideals. It's up to you to help them achieve their goals, or turn them to your own ends.

Explore the corporate colony: Halcyon is a colony at the edge of the galaxy owned and operated by a corporate board. They control everything... except for the alien monsters left behind when the terraforming of the colony’s two planets didn’t exactly go according to plan. Find your ship, build your crew, and explore the settlements, space stations, and other intriguing locations throughout Halcyon.

The Outer Worlds reviews and comments

I’m sure men love this game because they love meaningless tasks regardless of how fun they are but I will never pick this back up. Regretful purchase despite large sale and dropped at 16 hrs
My biggest complaint is that it's too short, which is almost an endorsement
Bought on ps4 and then it hit gamepass soon after, rip.

Anyways, I really enjoyed the time I had with this game. Not quite as long or as deep as I would've liked, but what's here is very good. Worth noting that on base ps4 there were notable performance issues, though.

Looking forward to going back for the DLC. 
Very good RPG. Rough around the edges on some parts but it’s humor and charm make it an enjoyable experience with a nice sci-fi coat of paint. 
the action is béad really bad that could be supportable if the writting was at least enjoyable intriging or something 
«Waste of time»
It's a great looking game with well thought out planets and cities to visit. The side missions and crew interactions are neat. The dialogue hilarious and cute. Plenty of discoverable lore to flesh out the world too. The combat is fun with lots of weapons to whet your whistle and match your preferred playstyle. The story line hooks you in right from the start! But unfortunately it then lets the line sink back into the water and you slowly drag yourself into the lacklustre end phase of the game. 

I really wanted this one to stick the landing as it does SO much so well. It was like they ran out of time or ideas? It felt so much bigger than it ended up being. The weird culmination at the end where you assault on the base, interspersed with groups of people you've met arriving and helping (which you didn't ask for? did they miss a section?) then to finish with a boring bullet sponge of an enemy which was frustrating to fight if you happened to bring the wrong load out in with you. 

My disappointment isn't enough for me to rate the game lower than 'Recommended' though. It's still got a lot going for it. But it keeps it from being an exceptional game for me. 
«Oh God i managed it»
A bit limited in some areas but overall a good experience.
