Outer Worlds is a game i really wanted to like.. more. It's good for sure, but it made me realise i have a big issue with games lacking core protagonist.

Lore
Permanent trait modification
Colourful?
Negative points
gunplay
Pointless lootfest

Fair 70%

An interesting, steelpunk mesh of Mass Effect and Fallout with Dishonored vibes. I enjoyed playing it quite a lot. However, balancing is rather off. I played on the second to last difficulty, and during almost all the playthrough, I felt quite overpowered.

Positive points
Runs smoothly.
Few bugs.
Humor.
Negative points
Too much loot.
Character too strong.

Good 90%

The game reminds me of KOTOR in some ways. I really like how smooth everything is.

Positive points
Combat
story
optimization.
Negative points
Companion AI.

Great 100%

The game is great, I would call it Obsidian take on Mass Effect. So many outcomes and choices, that the games forces you to replay it out of curiosity. The maps are denser and really satisfying, there is noting misplaced and yes you can kill everyone and finish the game. There are different builds and I must admin that having a lot of bits can get you a very interesting character tree.

As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds.

Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later than you expected only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter a host of factions all vying for power, who you decide to become will determine the fate of everyone in Halcyon. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

Welcome to the future - try not to break it.
