Title
Echoes of the Eye is one of the best expansions ever made and, in my opinion, exceeds the already very high bar set by the base game. I'm not going to mention any specifics, because the thing with Outer Wilds is, you can't say anything. Not even the tiniest, most minute detail. And that makes it a lot more special to experience.

Title
Echoes of the Eye is a very pleasing and well structured DLC for the base game, in a way that it's a complete new story, with different mechanics and atmosphere, but it also greatly complements the original plot. All the core gameplay elements are still there, it's pure exploration surrounding a mystery and you have to figure everything out through little puzzles and artifacts.

The main twist of this DLC is a surreal, horror, nightmare-like approach, with a lot more eerie, creepy and unsettling scenarios, which fits really well with Outer Wilds, since it's a frightening game for a good portion of the playerbase. The new explorable world is definitely my favourite out of all of the ones in the game - it's beautiful, mysterious and mystical. The soundtrack and sound effects are top-notch, they set the atmosphere so perfectly it hurts.

The plot of EotE is as good as you can expect if you played the main game, it's not complex at all, but it's intriguing enough for you to search desperately for answers. It's another perspective over the whole "Eye" cult developed by the Nomai, by a totally different race, with different beliefs, technologies, fears and aspirations. The ending is specially touching.

To be really honest, I liked this DLC a little more than the original game, mainly because: it is shorter, which allows you to play it thoroughly in one sit; there are different game mechanics all over the place, and all of them are fun; I really liked the horror-oriented parts. I mean, I'd not recommend playing just the DLC, the main game is quintessential, but I enjoyed the experience of playing Echoes of the Eye a little more.

    My only real complaint with this was how under-utilized certain aspects of the loop are compared to the main game. Otherwise, unforgettable expansion, it's probably best enjoyed with a fresh playthrough.

    Much better than I was hoping. It's quite interesting how they managed to add a new location and new mechanics, and still integrate it with the base game's mechanics.

    so weird to me seeing people call reducing the number of time gated things a bad thing. schedule planning and being forced to wait half a cycle to be allowed to follow a breadcrumb trail were some of the parts of the og i liked the least

    Really conflicted about this DLC. I really just disliked the stealth sections. They were too frustrating and after a while I just looked up guides for how to get through each one (didn't use any hints or guides for the base game).

    Takes everything fun about the base game and removes it.

    I don't quite know how I feel about the stealth sections. On one hand being in total and complete darkness with your only means to see also being the only thing that alerts the strangers to your presence is genius. On the other hand, you can just ring around the rosie them like you can with the enemies in Outlast making them a total cakewalk to beat.
