Critic Reviews for Outcast - Second Contact

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

Although its augmentations are selective and skin deep, Outcast remains a generous and uniquely captivating game.

A great remaster of a forgotten almost-classic, but most of its flaws were already obvious 18 years ago and this does little to improve any of them.

Outcast: Second Contact is an eighteen year old game that's been given a makeover. This is absolutely fine if you're a fan of the original and want to play it again on modern hardware, but if you don't have the nostalgia quality there's absolutely nothing that you won't find here that's done far better elsewhere. For a steep price tag of £39.99 on PS4, that's just not good enough.

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.

An awesome opportunity to live again this awesome 3D adventure. Outcast: Second Contact is the base of many of the exploration adventures today, but also a game that needed more work in order to offer playable improvements, specially in fields like the caracter's movement. On the other hand, we can se stunning landscapes.

Outcast: Second Contact is a classic adventure wrapped up in shiny new clothes, but which maintains everything it was born with underneath, for better or worse.

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.
