The Blackout Club Reviews
Stranger things have happened, but they're rarely as scary or as fun as The Blackout Club, a dynamic co-op adventure that beckons with its bellowing song of hypnosis.
With a few small hiccups along the road that can probably be easily ironed out, and as long as you have patience in abundance, The Blackout Club is a good time.
There's a lot going on in The Blackout Club, and while I haven't seen what the endgame is yet, I am looking forward to playing more of this with my friends. I'm not sold on sacrificing my character to a Voice and starting over just to see my name on the Leaderboards, though. I think I'll stick to offering small tributes when I find myself in possession of them. If you're an avid of Dead by Daylight or Friday the 13th player looking for a new challenge, you might want to spend the $30 and take this game for a spin yourself.
It really comes down to how the developers continue to support it, and the sheer passion present in its current…er, ‘Shape’ fills me with confidence
The Blackout Club is an excellent cooperative stealth game that splashes in a little bit of horror to spice things up. While it is still plagued by some minor bugs, it’s a fantastically tense experience that fans of first person stealth games will enjoy.
The Blackout Club is a game that can easily be played solo, but one that is a fantastic team game.
Pace yourself in the Blackout Club and it can be a fantastic game for a long time. From its various enemies and threats to its sinister suburban setting, the game feels great to play with friends, just as long as you don't spend too much time with it at once.
Whatever your constitution, The Blackout Club gets a strong recommendation from me. It’s got a tense feel to it, some cultist shenanigans going on, and especially off the back of the latest Stranger Things series, it’s something a bit different in the horror ranks.
It is a creepy and unsettling horror game that quickly evolves into a clumsy co-op mess and I am okay with that.
The Blackout Club is a fascinating take on the stealth-horror genre. Balanced between genuine fear and co-op laughter, starring vulnerable yet capable protagonists, and featuring a creepy atmosphere and goofy characters, the game is full of contradictory ideas that somehow work together really well. Best played with friends, but also enjoyable solo, this unique take on a horror game has something for everybody.
The Blackout Club isn’t perfect. As a fan of immersive sims, I want more lore and more tools to play with. But, it is a unique and compelling mash-up of genre horror and systems-driven gameplay. I can’t wait to get back to the maze.
Although Question still have a couple of bugs to iron out, The Blackout Club ultimately makes for a fun and engaging, if slightly clunky, experience. An ambitious entry into the horror genre, the game's distinct lack of focus on attacking makes for an incredibly tense experience as your team scrambles to compensate for their relative weakness compared to the antagonistic forces trying to hunt you down.
The Blackout Club is a pretty fun adventure - especially played in a cooperative- that mixes stealth, horror and some conspiracy theory in a remarkable way. However, a rough combat and repetitive missions make the adventure lose steam with the hours.

Lastly, if you would like the game to look a bit more decent, you're better off buying the PC version. While the graphics may not be all that better, and improvement is an improvement.
The only thing that makes The Blackout Club a half-success is that if you have some friends to team-up with, you will have so much fun.

The Blackout Club is positively packed with pioneering mechanics and a unique setup that draws you in, but lets itself down with serious repetition and a grind that dissuades long-term play.
The Blackout Club is a fun co-op experience, with elements of horror that diminish over time. Nonetheless, the setup is great and the navigation through levels is fun as well. If you or your friends are looking for a new co-op to sink some time into, The Blackout Club is worth your consideration.
As a game, it’s a refreshing change to some of the more in-your-face horror-fests where blood flows like a case of smashed merlot. It’s a gripping and spooky experience that places stealth above shooting with a Stranger Things vibe.
The Blackout Club is a game with interesting premise, but ultimately limited by nobody playing the game.

The Blackout Club manages to wedge itself into a crowded cooperative space with the use of clever tricks and an approachable atmosphere. But unless the developers build off this initial offering with new content to slice through repetition, it will soon get lost in the dark.
