Summary

In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation on a colonist ship that was lost in transit to Halcyon, the furthest colony from Earth located at the edge of the galaxy, only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy it. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

What The Outer Worlds offers in artistic creativity, it lacks in quest diversity. Exploring the colony is really exciting and you will lose yourself in everything it has to offer. unfortunately, you will end up performing a lot of the same menial tasks throughout the relatively short campaign. You have access to an incredible world but the quests never take full advantage of it. There is far too much focus on the political problems of the colony and not enough action and adventure. You never feel like the hero of the story, you feel more like the middle man between the people that are actually important.

The Outer Worlds seems to bring everything Obsidian wanted from Fallout: New Vegas to be but couldn’t reach due to the pressing development time frame, limited tech of that time, or other reasons. It brings the traditional gameplay and story presentation, with the familiar wit and humor of Fallout. It even brings a similar story of how humanity affects its environment, but it swirls it all in a new and thrilling story that is so rare in games these days. This title is a two-thumbs up from us!

The Outer Worlds is outstanding. This epic space adventure is teeming with exciting locations, missions to undertake, characters to speak to, and gives the player plenty of customization control. You can take on the adventure as a murderous anti-hero, a paragon of truth, or just lie and cheat your way through everything. With the exception of tiny technical problems and a bland protagonist The Outer Worlds rarely stumbles.
