Critic Reviews for Outward

5 / 10.0

Outward is an open-world survival RPG that starved me of fun and left me thirsty for bug fixes and a better combat system.

A few rough edges don't stop Outward from being a gem of an RPG.

A deeply flawed open world role-player but also an extremely ambitious and unique one, whose approach to co-op play and survival deserves further iteration.

Taken as a whole, Outward practically screams "cult classic." Its consistent challenge, cumbersome combat, and co-op systems won't resonate with everyone. But for a particular type of player—ones that don't mind trading dozens of frustrating moments for open-ended experiences—Nine Dot Studios' RPG is sure to find a dedicated audience. Outward's aspirations are commendable, but just like its protagonist, the end result is just average.

If you love the RPG old school genre, your feelings on the outside will increase, they will be valued in a greater esteem. A love that is perhaps blind in some aspects, but justified by what it can transmit. If you are not passionate about this type of adventure, we will not have enough patience to deepen your particularities.

Outward mixes elements of survival games and the old school RPG virtues, but its creators needed more time and money to create a memorable experience. It is a big map, there are many things to do and it is a difficult journey. However, all that is not enough for him to work perfectly. There are technical errors. If you want a challenge and remember another time of RPGs, enter in its spell.

Outward has a lot of potential, from the interesting death system to the complexity of the status effects, but the entire game is full of some big problems: clunky combat system, out-dated IA and rough (and superficial) gdr elements. Outward has definitely his little audience of early 2000-gdr lovers, and it's a bit charming in some ways, but in the end it's not even average.

If you can look past what's skin-deep and come to terms with Outward's combat for what it is, you'll find the foraging, crafting, striving survival sim you're looking for.
