8.5/10

“With The Outer Worlds, Obsidian has found its own path in the space between Bethesda and BioWare’s RPGs, and it’s a great one.”

9.3/10

“Finding your way through (or around) various problems is fun, and a streak of silly humor keeps the tone light enough to counterbalance the darker themes”

Bill Lavoy (Shacknews)

9/10

“It’s a fine game under any circumstances, but it’s a top-notch RPG with heavy consequences at almost every turn for those that are willing to immerse themselves. The Outer Worlds doesn’t tell you a story, it gives you a world full of interesting characters and asks you to tell your own.”
