Outcast – Second Contact
With pretty landscapes and settings, Outcast - Second Contact fulfills its aim to recreate the original.
One of the most creative and well executed titles ever released, dragged down by a disappointing remaster.
Outcast is a remastered that keep the feeling of the original versione, driven by a good narrative structure that put the player in a big world populated by different alien races that give a lot of different quest. Instead the gameplay is old and unfriendly, with a graphics that doesn't work well.

Outcast: Second Contact is well worth a look for both fans and newcomers alike.
Exceptionally clunky and full of archaisms, but successful comeback to the 90s. Outcast - Second Contact will be appreciated by older players and those who are not afraid of many old-fashioned elements.

On one side of the coin, Outcast: Second Contact is a warranted revisit of a beloved title. It has a fantastically well-constructed narrative that's a genuine treat to delve in to. However, on the other side of the coin are the terrible combat controls, embarrassingly low-fidelity voiceovers and a bland, bug riddled world design. Being retro is no excuse for recklessly disregarding the quality of the end product. This may be one of those nostalgic experiences that are better left dead and buried in the past.
Indeed, Outcast still has an amazing universe but this remaster isn't successful in its attempt to modernize its graphics and gameplay.

Outcast: Second Contact is no longer up to date as a remake, but offers a very puristic open-world experience.

If, like us, you didn't play the first game, you should not miss this. But if you did it, this return to the world of Outcast will be satisfying.

From most angles, Adelpha has never looked better. But certain assets, animations, and audio keep Outcast - Second Contact closer to 1999 than the 'remake' tag might suggest.
