    Agreed. Fuck a barrel of that shit. Only way I play those things if they have co-op and big guns, at least if you scream like a girl your friend is usually laughing or screaming along with you.

    I think the horror element was somewhat lost when that thing attacked him. The Amnesia trailer (Machine for Pigs) has much more suspense because you are left in the dark.

    It still looks good though!

    I'm only about maybe 45min in. I'm not really that big on horror games, but it seems pretty good so far. Nice graphics too.

    Great atmosphere, but I'm disappointed by the use of cheap jump scares. Movement is inconsistent and stupidly restricted. I can't jump onto a coffee table right in front of me, but I can leap 3 feet to reach an aircon duct.

    Can't fault the graphics though; makes Machine for Pigs look about 3 years out of date.

    Finished. Disappointing game. Great potential, most of it wasted.

    Far too short. Even Machine for Pigs was longer than this.

    Really? I just finished machine for pigs in a whopping 2.6 hours. Was looking for something scarier and came across this, not worth the $20 purchase?

    I'm pretty sure I spent more time on MFP than I did on Outlast. But they're both far too short. Anything less than 10 hours is a waste really.

    I watched a let's play on YouTube, and it became clear that the game was full of unfulfilled potential. The fact that the playlist was less than four hours long didn't impress me. I watched the entire game and I'm glad I saved my money.
