Default Outward - Review @ Gamereactor

Gamereactor has reviewed Outward:


Nine Dot Studios has crafted an utterly unique fantasy adventure, but it's one where you've got to take the rough with the smooth.

Outward is a survival-orientated, third-person action-adventure, emphasising exploration and timely quest completion, with deliberately different approaches to fantasy game tropes and some fresh world-building. There are ample crafting opportunities, RPG-style character building, strange locations to see, and three different main quest paths. It also sports local and online cooperative multiplayer. Quite a list. How all these elements coalesce is a bit more complicated, however, as we'll see below.


Unique and creative setting, Survival elements just the right level of involved, Both character and player progression feel earned.

Combat can be awkward and difficult to practice ahead of time, Timed quests cruelly punish but are hard to track, Game systems can sometimes leave you feeling stranded.

Score: 7/10

Cant really figure this one out. It seems crude and mediocre on first sight. But I suspect there might be much more behind. It resembles first Gothic games to me, somehow. I have so much to play and so little time, but I probably need to try this on my own, sooner or later.
