Review Rush was kindly supplied with a review code.
These are the type of reviews that make me sad. On the outside Redout: Space Assault on the outside looks like it could be a fun experience. Until booted up, and it is by far the most generic game I played for a long time.
The story of Redout: Space Assault is generic Humans are struggling to survive. You are Leon Barret, doing his job following orders, and you get entangled in a plot that this average job wouldn’t have dreamed to be in..
Redout: Space Assault is first and for most a on the rail shooter, where you are tasked to take out words of drones and the occasional fighter. You acan con trol speed and the diraction the ship travesl to miss enemy fire and to shoot back. collecting coins to upgrade your ships.
There are the levels where the player has full control over the ship and can move around freely while collecting resources, coins and the items they have been tasked to find.
At the end of each mission you get money, a score and a bonus card that can be picked these improve your ship’s stats. I stuck with missile damage as they are over powered as is. Spend the money on the ship’s stats like gun damage, shield, missile damage, and so on just makes the ship stronger. it is very basic.
Redout: Space Assault is very basic in all aspects of gameplay. I wanted more of everything. It is a shame as it looks lovely and plays really well. If you die, you just respawn and carry on regardless, so even if you suck as shooter, least this one you will do fine at.
Redout: Space Assault is a bit of a lackluster game in terms of content it is over all to simple it such a shame. If only it was more engaging and a bit of a higher skill cap.
However at its price point its still a good buy.
