Don't bother with it.Yeah, Outlast 1 has some dumb shit in it, but at least you can write off a lot of it with the sci-fi nonsense of all the psychic experiments stirred up some ghost problems and made everybody crazy; they sort of offer an explanation that basically amounts to something like the story in F.E.A.R. It's not perfect, but at least they attempt to justify all the sadism and psychos.Outlast 2's entire premise and setting is just kinda dumb and hard to believe. By the end of the game they finally explain the flashback storyline of the guy's childhood, but most of the present day storyline goes completely unexplained even by the very end, which kinda paints it as an unreliable narrator situation since some of the stuff in the final chapters is absurd, by which I mean it is duuuuuuuuuumb. The game's entire gimmick of Christian cult town that murders babies gets played out really quick, and the outdoor rural environments just kinda suck. Agreed that it's a bad game.Also, the general vibe of Outlast 2 is just gross. Outlast 1 is just kinda mad science that was unethical but only really spiraled out of control in the last like 6 hours leading up to when your guy gets there, whereas Outlast 2 is about like months and years of ongoing abuse and infanticide that isn't scary, and instead is just something I'd rather not think about.I disliked Outlast 2 because I would be turned around in circles in the dark outdoors. I got lost plenty of times. Also, the baddies weren't that interesting. There's a woman I barely saw. In 1 and the DLC, there's the big hulking dude, the Groom, and the cannibal with the buzzsaw.
