Critic Reviews for Outbreak: The New Nightmare

The characters feel like they're skating through the environments rather than walking through them.

It’s a game made for survival horror fans, but sadly isn’t one I can see many survival horror fans loving.

Nostalgia vs. Quality

Outbreak: The New Nightmare is only something that I think the most dedicated survival horror fans will enjoy and even then they should approach it with caution.

There are some games out there that are "so-bad-its-good," like most of Swery's games. Outbreak: The New Nightmare is one of those "so-bad-it-gave-me-depression" ones. The developer likely is inexperienced, and working with almost no budget, but not everyone should make a game. The saying "anyone can make a game", means that a good game designer can come from anywhere. All survival-horror fans must stay away from this one.

With a proposal to revive the survival horror genre along the lines of games like Resident Evil, Outbreak: The New Nightmare bets on traditional elements of gameplay, plot and atmosphere of tension. However, by bringing the technical elements that are a fundamental and constitutive part of this type of game, it fails to promote an authentic experience that causes the famous sensations that enshrined the zombie apocalypse titles.

The game does a really good job of conveying the gameplay and appearance of the original Resident Evil games, but the problem is, the world has moved on, and when the camera angles are so acute and obscured it makes what should be a nostalgic trip, very frustrating. The gunplay is overly sensitive and inconsistent as you never really know where you are shooting or you cannot judge distance and angles very well.
