This is a barren horror game that feels like it is barely clinging to its life and is held together with cheap tape. It’s utterly lacking in features and the gameplay is simplistic… when it works. When you’re not bored or desperately scraping for something to do, expect to be frustrated by the ill-conceived photography and melee systems.

DreadOut 2 draws inspiration from consolidated franchises and titles, but it ends up delivering a clumsy, tedious and monotonous experience. Unfortunately, the promising premise of exploring legends from such a different culture is undervalued in a low quality horror game. Even if we consider the average works in the genre, there are more compelling options available.

DreadOut 2 is short and can be completed in one short afternoon. It is great as its own thing, but in its current state, there is no way it can compete with more mainstream horror titles. Certain sections are frustrating, others are simply odd, and some can be downright scary. Many ‘nuh-uh’ moments can be found while playing. But as short as the game is, I am unsure if the content justifies the price.

The bottom line is even at only $19.99, DreadOut 2 is not worth your money, at least when it comes to this version of the game. From frequent frame rate dips to muddied graphics, If you are going to play DreadOut 2, you are better off buying this for any other device. If you are a fan of the survival horror genre and you only own a Switch, I recommend waiting for DreadOut 2 to go on sale, as there is a semblance of a fun time to be had if the game ever receives an update to improve the player experience. Only time will tell if that will be the case. It is a shame, too, because overall, DreadOut 2 could be a horror classic if the game had a higher level of polish and budget to work with.

While it definitely exudes a creepy vibe, somewhat muddy “combat” and a lack of direction make it tough to enjoy

Dreadout 2 is a horror adventure title with some open-world elements. Its limited budget impacts its grand ideas and this was frustrating. With such potential, it could have been great. However, its many flaws will leave you wanting.

DreadOut 2 isn’t necessarily a good game, but it’s got its charms. The combat is clunky and slow, explorations can be needlessly vague, and it’s not graphically impressive to say the least. That being said, it does still have some good ideas that make it somewhat entertaining. If you want to play a low budget horror title, I would highly recommend checking out the original DreadOut first and if you like that give the second one a shot. Otherwise DreadOut 2 doesn’t offer anything terribly interesting.

The Indonesian dev team Digital Happiness has attempted to follow the uniqueness and move the boundaries a bit further, which was, in some ways, a success. The question remains if that's sufficient to recommend the game. If you can look past the small technical issues and certain naivety, you will be able to enjoy an unusual gaming experience.
