The Outbound Ghost looks and sounds wonderful, but that's about all there is to enjoy here. Exploration and combat are both incredibly tedious, and the story meanders for about six hours until it ends with nothing resolved. I want to like this game, but it feels like it lacks any sort of central vision.

The Outbound Ghost feels like a mixed bag; it doesn't know whether or not it wants to be charming or have a darker storyline. It fails at both.

The Outbound Ghost is a bland and confusing game that is as boring as it is pretty.

Both a game and a developer to keep an eye on, but maybe wait for a deep sale or substantial updates before you buy The Outbound Ghost.

The Outbound Ghost is a well-crafted project with a competent execution from a small dev team. The sceneries have a lot of repeated elements and exploration is oftentimes monotonous, but combat is a highlight due to the variety of Figments and it's fun to devise various strategies based on its elements. The story develops in an interesting way and helps keep the player engaged. It isn't an impressive game but it's worth giving it a try.

I wanted to like The Outbound Ghost, I really did. There’s clearly a ton of love behind its development, especially in the art and sound departments. Unfortunately, its story is completely underdeveloped and ends without much of it being resolved or explained. The combat is fun at first, and encourages creative combinations of Figments and their Aspects, but it does start to feel repetitive after a while.

The Outbound Ghost is the best Paper Mario styled game I’ve played in many years. It easily offers a dozen hours of gameplay, and that’s just if you play the main story. For those that like to wander, there’s plenty of hidden secrets to unearth, as well as randomizer effects to mix up your experience. While the game wasn’t as tight or well organized as I would have liked, it’s still a solid turn-based RPG that fans should enjoy.

The Outbound Ghost is a title that, despite its good story and its interesting visuals, falls short of the gameplay, being a monotonous title that fails to innovate and leaves us with a completely satisfactory feeling.
