I wanted to love The Outer Worlds, I really did. As a huge fan of KOTOR, I had high expectations for this experience. While the world of TOW has its charm, everything just falls... flat. For example, Byzantium, which is supposed to be a city of excess, felt big but empty. The faction and reputation system don't really affect anything significant in your playthrough. The series of fetch quests got old fast. I didn't get attached to any of the playable crew members or NPCs - which is a big yikes for any RPG. My biggest pet peeve was the worldbuilding and environmental storytelling - all of the notes and logs looked the same and font was so TINY I had to move closer to my TV screen. The conversations with the NPCs were way too long-drawn-out. I ended up skipping through memo logs and conversations, which probably meant I missed half the story, but I couldn't be bothered to try and learn more. Ok, on the good stuff... I did like the Vicar Max and Nyoka personal quests. I enjoyed the weapons system and exploring the damage types - that was a lot of fun.
It is not quite Fallout, but it is very well done and fun to play.
