The Outer Worlds is one of the most anticipated games arriving this year. It may be at a different level as that of Death Stranding, however, fans of Fallout are sure hyped about Obsidian’s newest sci-fi RPG.

It is really hard not to compare The Outer Worlds to Fallout since the game is also from Obsidian. The Outer Worlds is smaller and it also doesn’t give players a fully open-world experience.

The game is about to launch in just a few days, and the game’s review embargo has been removed, we get to know what the critics think about the game. What we have for you below is a round-up of reviews from the notable media outlets on the web.

PC GAMER — 79/100

“The Outer Worlds is a light-hearted RPG that aims to emulate the Firefly fantasy.”

– Tom Senior

IGN — 8.5

“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.”

– Dan Stapleton


“The Outer Worlds is consistently compelling throughout, and it’s a superb example of how to promote traditional RPG sensibilities in a sharp, modern experience.”

– Edmond Tran


“The team at Obsidian excels at encouraging creative experimentation within its responsive and absurd setting, ensuring that every visit to Halcyon is full of delightful surprises.”

– Joe Juba


“The Outer Worlds is more limited from a size standpoint compared to a lot of other open world adventures, but it makes up for it in charm and a succinct vision without much bloat.”

– Chris Carter


“The Outer Worlds marks Obsidian operating at the top of its game, and a strong foundation for a new franchise that seems destined for greatness.”

– Alex Avard


“As a more compact Fallout-like experience The Outer Worlds really works, and I’m already hoping that we’ll get to return to the Halcyon Colony again someday.”

– Hayes Madsen


“With full character development, a wonderful companion system, and a spirit all its own, The Outer Worlds is everything I had hoped it would be and more.”

– Alexander Thomas

With those scores, it looks like The Outer World is a game that one should watch out for. Obsidian’s test for making a game like Fallout but more restricted seems to be a good formula. From what we have read from the critics, the game’s spin on classic mechanics seems to work great and that the game’s universe is colorful and interesting.

The Outer Worlds is set to launch on October 25 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
