Critic Reviews for Outward: Definitive Edition

Outward: Definitive Edition keeps its proposal intact on Switch and adds new content to the existing DLC to make the experience the most complete. Its level of demand and constant saving continue to make it one of the toughest and most surprising adventure games in the current catalog.

There's not much here to really dazzle, but if you haven't yet played it, Outward Definitive Edition has a lot to like for RPG and survival fans.

Unfortunately, the definitive edition of Outward has not been able to redeem the original work in its entirety, because it has basically maintained its same strengths and weaknesses.

If you are looking for a survival RPG, Outward has something interesting to say, but be prepared to face some of its flaws.

An ambitious game that punches above its weight with unique RPG systems, survival mechanics and co-op support - and a lot of heart.

So, while Outward is certainly a port with limitations due to the platform, I’m not entirely sure I would have enjoyed it any more on any other console. Yes, there is a joy to being dropped in a big world and left to carve your own journey through it. Outward is a fundamentally appealing experience. The problem for Outward is that there other games that have done that with much more soul.

Outward: Definitive Edition is the only version recommended right now for those wanting to experience the game for the first time. The lack of technical improvements and prominent additions end up making the game unattractive to previous players.

This game has me super excited. I really am enjoying it, and as much as I do feel it is amazing, I feel it could still be better. This has probably been the thing I wracked my brain over the most as good and fun as it is, there was always something missing. Something not quite complete. Even now I am having trouble putting my finger on it. It is like every aspect that you could rate this game is only just off a perfect score. Maybe if it had a slightly bigger budget, or if it was backed by another studio or company that could have funded it more, I do not know that could have hurt it.
