With pretty landscapes and settings, Outcast - Second Contact fulfills its aim to recreate the original.
Massive visual improvements definitely count for something, but when you can’t fix the original problems with a game’s dated mechanics and design, there’s not much else you can do. Outcast: Second Contact is a solid attempt at returning to the original classic, but it’s far from perfect. Fans might be rejoicing at a chance to relive the journey and brush up on all the lore, but just about anyone else should wait until there’s a sale.
Easily the most off-putting aspect of Outcast are the dialog recordings. When so much effort has been put into remastering the score and the visual presentation, why these glorified midis were not given the same treatment is beyond me.
