Summary

Red Barrels' Outlast is a solid indie title, which provides tension and scares in equal abundance. And while it lacks the sort of story depth a lot of us have become accustomed to, there is still a plethora of terrifying fun to be had. Get it on PlayStation Plus as soon as you can.

We like

  • Phenomenal atmosphere.
  • Genuinely scary and stressful.
  • Unique use and implementation of the video camera.

We dislike

  • Repetitive stalker pursuits.
  • Underdeveloped characters and story.
  • Battery life for camera's too short.
