Review: When it comes to ‘OUTLIER’ i find myself drawn. On the one hand it has the potential to be a great game, but yet it has so many flaws I am struggling to find reasons to recommend it! It is a shooter/adventure game with pretty nice looking procedurally generated levels. You get a small range of guns as well as enemies as well as some powers like telekinesis to take down people as well.

While mostly great fun (if a little nauseating) the gameplay is a little glitchy at times and you can find yourself getting stuck in the scenery, or even having troubles looking at the upgrade board when it pops up. But you can excuse most of these issues because the game is in early access. What I can’t excuse is the lack of content over what the original demo had. In fact, you can see all there is to see in the game in less than an hour. Sure, you can take your time and drag it out a bit, but for £11.39 you really shouldn’t have to. While I do still recommend this game as I enjoyed playing it, I do suggest you hold off until there is more content added to it.
