    Sorry for not going through the entire thread but will I like this if I liked Dead space 1 & 2 and System Shock 2?

    Not necessarily, this is more survival than action and you can't really fight at all, you also have a camera with you for illumination and revealing other things which gets a bit annoying hunting for batteries and such or missing possible plot details because you didn't record whatever event transpired.

    Nice horror game though but it slowly starts leaning towards the supernatural which some will dislike.

    Outlast is more slow & intense, has lots of scary freakout moments, kinda like Penumbra or Amenzia or few parts by Condemned.

    Hmm, was thinking of getting this, as it looks good, but if you can't shoot or anything, i think i'll pass, dont fancy it just wandering around with a cam. :(

    At no point in my playthrough of this game did I think "You know what this game needs?" Guns!" Its just not that kind of game, atmosphere and story drive you forward, I enjoyed it a lot, even if I crapped my pants several times :D

    Outlast is a fantastic game.
    Incredibly atmosphere. My only complaint was the final area of the game
    which to me felt like they simply ripped off the Origin lab from the end of FEAR.

    Also, while I have no problems with the defenseless gameplay mechanics setup in the game.
    I do find it completely unrealistic that a person in that situation, no matter how unskilled with weapons, wouldn't try to find a piece of wood or something to defend themselves with. ;)

    My fav horror game together with Condemned Criminal Origins. Finished the expansion around 2 weeks ago, really enjoyed it.

    Worth full price but yes you should definitely pick it up during the Steam Halloween sale.

    I do not think so. What if he is a pacifist? Many people would run for their lives rather than get into a confrontation.

    Also he was no where near a match for the enemies in the game.
