The Outer Worlds Review Roundup


Recommended Posts

It's getting a bunch of really glowing reviews and some "Good, but here are the flaws" reviews. So far I've only seen one that was apathetic and *none* that are actively "this game sucks".

Sounds like a quite strong set of reviews to me.

So far, TOW has an 86% metascore, which is outstanding considering it's an old-school RPG with a limited budget and it's not a sequel of an existing IP.

For reference, Fallout: New Vegas had a metascore of 84%.

TOW is turning out better than I had hoped. My body is ready. The hype is real.

That's just the PlayStation 4 reviews.

That's BEFORE release, wait till all the steam fanbois can swarm the public reviews on the 25th and drive it down just because they are mindless steam drones...

It will happen.

I haven't heard many criticisms of the game that weren't things that were intentional and not to the critics taste or stuff that is a result of the small budget like the areas being a bit small. 

Some critics had some issues with combat but then some loved it. I heard one critic say the reputation system could have been more meaningful. 

 

All in all a pretty amazing result for this game.

The metacritic score for FNV is probably a sore subject here. It's clear to anyone who played FNV when it first came out that it was released way too early. I guess Bethesda didn't want FNV to look too good in comparison to their Oblivion with Guns.

Hmm, kill XP. 😉

Booo!  ...But this fight doesn't seem the same to me now.  I don't care.  Ideally, there would be no kill XP, but it is what it is.   I guess... I dunno… let the designers die on every hill.  It's their job to make the game.  It's my job to play and hopefully enjoy it.  If you understand that, then you'll understand this: congrats, mate.
