Outlast II is a marked improvement over the original Outlast in almost every way. It's still scary, yet utilises smarter designed scares to keep the tension high from beginning to end. The story is bound to be controversial, given the themes it tackles, but will easily demand and keep your attention from beginning to end. First person indie horror as a genre has lost its vision over the years, but Outlast II firmly stands tall as one of the best examples. It's absolutely terrifying and a staunch improvement over the original.
Red Barrels really knows how to get under your skin. Play the game, you will understand. The dark undertones of the game set up the story throughout and constantly make you think wtf, yet you still want more. Buy Outlast 2, be scared, you won't be disappointed.
"This game is absolutely the most freaking thing ever created. You are going to want your mommy to hold your hand."

Outlast 2 brings many remarkable improvements concerning graphics and gameplay and keeps the horror, which made the first installment known worldwide. The addition of the inventory menu and the new camera features fit perfectly in the game. Red Barrels repeated the amount of horror, thrilling and scary moments along with an interesting and well developed story, turning Outlast 2 into one of the best horror games of the year.

Outlast 2 could well be the scariest horror game I have played to date. There were a few very minor gripes, but the isolation, desolation, and desperation were noticeable throughout. The sense of fear was more impactful than in the first game, and there were parts where I played hiding behind anything I could get my hands on. I went to Temple Gate, and I did not enjoy my stay. And by that statement alone, I have to applaud Red Barrels for creating such a brilliant game.
This is an alluring and spooky game along with macabre and horrific atmosphere which shatters your peace. Red Barrels studio not only succeeded in taking new steps in survival horror genre using open spaces and exciting and puzzling escapes but also they are so successful in creating sinister and lethal zones that must be used as a unique benchmark for the movie industry.

I loved Outlast 2 when it first came out, but I can't deny that dying repeatedly until I worked out where I needed to go in some areas annoyed me a little. With those annoyances heavily reduced, the game really does shine even brighter.
The greatest horror game to date.
Outlast 2 is a perfect blend of gore, atmosphere, tension, jump scares, creepy people, misery, adrenaline, despair and an unforgettable plot. One of the scariest games you will ever play.
Its trial and error gameplay is going to irritate plenty of players, but once Outlast 2 has you, it's a nightmare that you won't be able or want to wake up from.
