Modder for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series and Crysis series, some of which have won Crytek community awards (most popular) while one of my S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mods has been featured in German PC gaming magazines "PC Games" and "PC Action". Many thanks to SetaKat and david.m.e for teaching me all the tricks to modding S.T.A.L.K.E.R. I'm also an amateur programmer. The only honest hardware/game reviewer in the world, see GND-Tech.com (worthy mods may even get an article), Stalker.wikia admin, Cooler Master product beta tester, etc. I write coherent reviews for mods on ModDB. I mostly play Dragon Age series, Mass Effect series, Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Neverwinter Nights 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. But I'm always up for some Natural Selection 2, No More Room in Hell, Killing Floor, and Serious Sam HD. I only play PAYDAY 2 and ArmA 3 privately, join our community at GND-Tech.com if you'd like to play with us.

Painfully bad, cheap Hollywood horror, equivalent to what you find on SyFy channel late at night. Devoid of creativity and originality, Outlast is worse than many Amnesia custom stories, which are often made by teenagers. It's full of scripted, predictable jump scares and enemy encounters, topped off by uninspiring level design and cringe-worthy writing and cliches.
But hey, it's still better than Dead Space. Nonetheless, save your pennies. If games like this become popular, then it will be the end of the already-endangered horror genre.

It looks great. Pretty much every texture is redone and looks modern.

Absolutely amazing mod, provides a ton of remarkably detailed locations with interesting characters, cool new equipment, and hundreds of hours of additional exploration.

Absolutely amazing atmosphere... one of the most immersive, creepy games you'll ever find. The developers must be commended for creating such a unique, mesmerizing world.
Gameplay could use a few tweaks though; the very limited duration of the torch is odd, maybe a bit more searching for clues to emphasize a detective feel more, and I feel that some places could have been turned into some of the scariest places in video game history, had there been more of a threat to the player. Specifically, the basement in chapter 1, which is one of the most amazing locations in the game, could have been made to be one of the scariest places ever.
Still, the atmosphere is absolutely incredible. Get this game.

Very good stealth mechanics, seems to be a decent toolkit though I haven't spent much time making missions yet. Keep in mind that this mod is mostly just a toolkit, and relies on user made missions.
My main problem is with the melee combat: the concept behind it is great, but it's executed poorly. Basically, you press LMB by default to swing a melee weapon, and MMB by default to block/parry. However, there are four different types of swings and four different types of parries; each parry blocks one type of swing from an enemy.
Cool in concept, but it's ruined by the controls which don't seem to be changeable for this. The type of swing or parry you do depends on mouse movement: moving it to the left does one type of swing or parry, to the right does another, and up and down do others. This is awful since the mouse is also used for looking, it shouldn't be used for both. It's so common to do the wrong type of parry and die as a result, because this control scheme is terrible.
What should have been done was; rather than using the mouse to determine which type of swing/parry to use, you should use the WASD keys instead. Common sense suggests this is a better method, and it has been proven to work very well already. Try out Cryostasis: Sleep of Reason to see this utilized properly. Morrowind also uses it, though the combat in that game is too flawed to begin with. Still, this is a necessary change that should be done in the future. It's not too big of a deal though, since this is a stealth mod. Just don't be spotted, and used ranged weapons if you do.

Interesting atmosphere and story, but it's harmed by it's ridiculously paced fast-forward gameplay.
