What even happened to this?
Outlast II is one of the most disappointing horror sequels I've ever played. It's a Trial-and-Error type of game, with only shock horror that throws gore, violence, and jumpscares aren't even scary at you. All the magic that made Outlast I great is gone.
Just because they made things much more efffed up than before, that doesn't make things any better. Red Barrels, just because you added stronger language (now c**t is used) and added more stronger sex scenes, that doesn't make it any better.
There is too much running. All that beautiful stealth mechanics from the first, gone. Enemies always know where you are at all the time, ruining the stealth mechanics and making it a running simulator.
Story is confusing and cliched, that's all I'm going to say.
Over and all, I can't recommend this game. I'm really disappointed in this.
(Edit: Turns out c**t was used in Outlast 1. It wasn't used much, but it was there. It's used by one of the enemies when you get away.)
