full on review (no spoilers) in The Outer Worlds: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS) Posted November 15, 2019 21 hours ago, Wormerine said: Overall I agree, except thanks to following Outer Worlds pre-release more closely, and didn’t have such high hopes or expectations, as devs did state whenever given a chance that it is a smaller title. If anything, I was presently surprised in some aspects. I saw the gameplay estimates, so that was what kept my enthusiasm down, slightly. That being said, because I am such a completionist, I honestly thought that I would still get more gameplay out of it. In general, I have always played more hours than are estimated for the games I have played, and usually a significant number more. That being said, I think that I clocked in right around 45 hours by the time that I finished this, and while that isn't terrible... the problem is more that I don't feel the need/desire to replay it again. I beat Tyranny in probably about the same amount of time, then I immediately started replaying it with a different character and immediately could appreciate the difference in the story reactivity and the gameplay experience itself. And despite them being semi-similiar characters, the game and the epilogue were VERY different. I told a friend, "Yeah, my 2nd playthrough, I got exactly the epilogue that I was hoping for... but I had to do a LOT of stuff that I really didn't want to and make some seriously hard decisions." 15 hours ago, IndiraLightfoot said: Clearly, Michael_Galt and I are still waiting for the same kind of deep wide-berth replayability-juicy game! Thx for the review. Sure! That is what I most like about RPGs. I like that they are essentially "choose your story" adventures that can make you examine philosophical, moral, or political issues. I love when there are serious companions that make you think of people you know or could imagine and actually identify or sympathize with and want to "get to know". If you haven't played Tyranny yet, I highly recommend it. I wish that it hadn't been marketed as "grim dark" and "evil has won, be as evil as you want to be". I don't play evil, ever. I don't like to. I can maybe get by with some lawful evil or neutral evil, but I want to play as a paladin, or desert ranger. I want to be the hero and to help people. That is why it took me 2 years to play Tyranny. But, it is completely possible to play a "good" character and still enjoy the game. I essentially played as "lawful good" and "chaotic good" and it was incredibly interesting and rewarding.
