While it might once have been the Game of the Year, age and experience have robbed Outcast of its original magic. Luckily, most of that has been replaced by an exciting return to the old and an interesting look back at what the landscape of games used to be.
As is the ability to turn-on ‘modern health bar regeneration’ and turn-off ‘auto-aim’. Outside of the story, exploration, and puzzles, combat can play an equally big part in the overall story. But underneath the shiny new visuals, Outcast remains pretty much the same. Which means controls and combat that was fine if a little clumsy in 1999 is even more so today.
Para los novatos quizás lo recomendamos con más reservas, porque no será tan sencillo ver el enorme legado que nos deja Outcast, un juego que incluso hoy, con apenas una capa de pintura nueva, muestra una ambición que pocos lanzamientos se atreven a igualar. No es un juego perfecto, y quizás nunca lo fue, pero sí forma parte de la historia de la industria.
