Outcast: Second Contact is a love letter to fans of the original game, it has everything the original had (including its bugs) but with a new coat of paint and some useful new moves. Appeal have made the game more accessible to gamers today with the regenerative health and difficulty choices but you must understand that the game still thinks It's 1999 in the control department.

Outcast: Second Contact, is a great throwback to a classic title that didn’t get nearly enough attention when it was first released. Unlike other remakes, the game has aged fairly well, and it’s clear that the game’s design was ahead of its time. It’s still got some rough edges, but it’s a great underrated classic, and it’s worth a spin

A fine remake of a game that deserves to be played as much as it gets fondly remembered.

Outcast is a special piece of gaming history that surprisingly and against any reasonable expectation withstood the test of time. It absolutely should not be missed.

One of the most creative and well executed titles ever released, dragged down by a disappointing remaster.

With "Outcast: Second Contact" Appeal presents a polished retro experience, which still captivates with a playful freedom and dares a small excursion into the past. Thanks to the pretty presentation, it's a lot of fun to explore the hub worlds of the planet and exchange ideas with the funny aliens. If you didn't like the title back then, you probably won't like the outdated gameplay mechanics as well as the hacky controls. However, veterans will not be able to escape the charm of the former classic with its entertaining story despite small quirks.

A decent remake of a great classic. Outcast: Second Contact could have been more ambicious, but it's a good opportunity for new players to love the world and the exploration of Adelpha.

Outcast Second Contact is a good remake, but not for everyone. Despite some old-school mechanics could prevent someone from enjoying the game (gunplay and matted animations are the two main defendants), Outcast is still imbued with good exploration and an entertaining plot. Give it a chance.

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.
