GameSpew : 9/10
Ultimately, Murder on Eridanos serves as a magnificent send-off to The Outer Worlds. It’ll keep you hooked from beginning to end; it’s a shining example of how to do downloadable content and has me eagerly awaiting the Fallout: New Vegas sequel that only exists in my head.
Noisy Pixel : 9/10
The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos has everything that fans loved with a little extra to make it the proper send-off for this title. The whodunit direction was a smart way to focus on the amazing writing this game offers while causing the player to break down the possible suspects and solve this mystery. This expansion is Obsidian at their best and compliments this entire experience so well. It’s just sad that there won’t be more.
MMORPG.com : 8,5/10
The Outer Worlds Murder On Eridanos is my favorite story in the Outer Worlds. Obsidian did a great job at presenting this murder mystery and created an experience I wanted to explore and adventure in. A bit too much hand holding lead to a few moments of mild irritation and a lack of any new combat mechanics feels like a bit of a missed opportunity. Overall, though, it was a great experience and one I would recommend if you’re a fan of Outer Worlds. The DLC drops today(as of the time of publication) on Steam so head on over there to check it out.

Say farewell to The Outer Worlds with its final DLC, offering an adventure full of witty dialogue and the best location the game has to offer.
Screen Rant : 8/10
Murder on Eridanos is an enjoyable adventure slotted neatly into the preexisting story of The Outer Worlds which, while not changing much about the status quo, still provides hours of enjoyment. The different amount of companion interactions (bring Felix along at least once) and interjections during pivotal plot moments - something which must have taken an impressive amount of work from the game's developers considering the amount of questline choices and story variations there are - give Murder on Eridanos a lot of replay value for those players who are looking for getting the most of out their money, and, as the final DLC for The Outer Worlds, it would have been fairly hard for Murder on Eridanos to send the game off with any more style.
VG247 : 8/10
Murder on Eridanos feels like The Outer Worlds at its best. Roleplay, diverging quest lines, and carefully balanced absurdity have always been at the heart of the game, and this DLC feels like a freer exploration of that core concept. Without having to juggle the high-stakes of the main story across an extended run-time and multiple planets, there’s more leeway to knit a larger cast of more interconnected characters together for a more engaging mystery.
Ezanime : 8/10
Murder on Eridanos feels like The Outer Worlds at its best.
Everyeye.it : 7,5/10
Despite some occasional qualitative fluctuations and a small failure in the final bars, in fact, the history of the DLC remains on the excellent levels seen both in the base game and in the previous expansion.
Gamersky : 7,5/10
Murder on Eridanos continues the high quality of The Outer Worlds,the dark humor carried over from the Fallout series remains a unique experience. The outstanding scene design and compelling story line both make this last DLC excellent. It can be said that "World beyond the Sky" has come to a satisfying and evocative end.
PC Invasion : 7,5/10
The Murder on Eridanos DLC expansion doesn't add too much to the Outer Worlds experience, but it has just enough personality and humor to make it worthwhile.
IGN Italy : 7,4/10
An interesting but flawed DLC that can provide some new fun adventures in Obsidian's sci-fi RPG.
IGN : 7/10
The final expansion to Obsidian’s original sci-fi RPG is a low-key but intriguing finale. The Outer Worlds: Murder on Eridanos puts us into a traditionally structured murder mystery with a few good turns to investigate across one of its weirdest planets yet. It doesn’t revive the stale combat but it does give us a good reason to come back to the crew of the Unreliable to solve one last case.
Wccftech : 7/10
Murder on Eridanos provides an intriguing story to follow thanks to its murder investigation premise, even though the DLC otherwise maintains all of the pros and cons of The Outer Worlds and its previous DLC, Peril on Gorgon.
Jeuxvideo.com : 6/10
Fans, for their part, will find all the ingredients that made up the recipe for the base game and will be able to immerse themselves in this fanciful universe for 5 to 7 hours
