Start your adventure to…The Outer Worlds
First of all, you should know that this game is an Action RPG. Exactly, the most common and famous genre of recent times. I must confess that when I tried the game I expected the usual repetitive routine.
Regardless, from the first moments, I realized that there was something different in this title. As you know, the boys at Obsidian Entertainment are masters in creating grotesque situations at the limit of the ridiculous. A glaring example may be the aforementioned Fallout: New Vegas.
Well, The Outer Worlds is rich in similar elements. Starting from the character creation screen, yes, because you can customize the protagonist, you can have fun. That is only amplified thanks to the various jokes and sarcastic dialogues. I enjoyed seeing how the game “breaks” the fourth wall.
For example, when customizing the character, you will be asked “not to be shy”, but to insert all the elements that represent you. A truly original way to give yourself an immersive experience, making you identify with the hero.
Also, I must emphasize how impressed I was about the full freedom that the game offers you for the creation of the character. You can edit DOZENS of different aspects and create an original adventurer every time.
Freedom and sarcasm: I think there is nothing better!
The weight of wor(l)ds
The Outer Worlds does not have an open-world system but is divided by territories. There are vast areas to explore, rich in objects to discover and especially NPCs with which to interact.
Here you will see one of the greatest strengths of the game. Each dialogue will be delightful to listen to and not at all boring. Involvement will reach high levels and you will have to carefully measure your words.
Sometimes, you will be able to conquer your enemies and make them your allies through the phrases you choose to use. Not surprisingly, during your adventure, you can create a team that includes 6(!) Companions! However, in other situations, well, the wrong words will make you start endless wars.
And when it comes to action, then The Outer Worlds doesn’t disappoint. The game is an FPS, you will have the opportunity to experience the power of the various weapons and the effects that your skills can have on enemies.
During your adventure, you will be able to change several times equipment and experience the mix of skills and weapons that seems to you more effective. This way, you will find the perfect combination, your own play style.
In my personal experience, I have chosen the skills that help you in hand-to-hand combat. I don’t want to tell you how to play, just like the game mantra, you have to be free to choose, but I suggest you to invest experience points in these skills. They will be especially useful against the space beasts you will encounter during your travels and maybe they can save your life!
Landscapes of the other worlds
Apparently, Obsidian didn’t have a high budget at its disposal. Nevertheless, from a technical point of view, I found The Outer Worlds a real gem.
Personally, I loved the colorful graphics as well as the landscapes of the space worlds that include the Alcyon Colony. For example, while exploring the map, you’ll be amazed at a sunset or a starry night. Not to mention the design of monsters, plants and many other elements, able to astonish and scare you at the same time.
In a nutshell, this game is really capable of transporting you to…outer worlds!
