    Outriders isn’t revolutionary, and it’s not trying to be. Outriders is a well-thought-out shooter with expertly tailored RPG twists. It's an enjoyable ride that is made infinitely better by playing with friends, but not inherently hurt by running solo either. This game takes the best parts from other looter-shooters and the best aspects of sci-fi RPGs and blends these elements into an experience that is worth diving into because of its high replayability, customizable play style, and fun story. I'm already strapping in for another run.

    Outriders is the tonic to loot-driven games that demand players log in every day. It’s also not gating content behind DLC, seasonal updates, or just pushing for players to grind to an endgame to grind some more....It’s a shooter for those that love blowing enemies to bits, and it’s an RPG for those that want to feel powerful. There’s plenty of fun to be had on Enoch, but for maximum effect, we’d suggest bringing some friends.

    Outriders is the type of game where players get what they put in. For those who want a pick-up and put-down RPG with an emphasis on story, Outriders has that covered. For those who want hundreds of hours of gameplay in tense and adrenaline-pumping combat with powerful builds, Outriders has that covered too. Ultimately, the strength of Outriders is how it connects to its players and what they want out of the game, meaning everyone walks away feeling different about it, and that can only be a good thing.

    While familiar and somewhat basic, Outriders has a lot of riveting action and a compelling gameplay loop that will satisfy people looking for their next looter shooter fix.

    Outriders is a brash and bold looter shooter that will keep you entertained through the campaign and side missions, but its endgame content gets repetitive fast.

    I'm hooked. I love Outriders' shooting, skill, and loot mechanics and how they work together to form a highly addicting co-op shooter. While it has a lot of features that I'm not fond of, the core gameplay is solid enough to easily carry the rest of the experience. If you're into looter shooter or dungeon crawler games, Outriders will scratch that itch — if you can play it. With its current matchmaking and server issues, we cannot help but score it lower than we'd like. Whenever the technical issues are resolved, the experience could be as high as 8.3, making Outriders a co-op shooter that's well worth experiencing either alone or with friends.

    Outriders is a boring game to play solo, with a lack of any real end-game content and bugs that may wipe all of your progress it’s probably best to wait for a sale for this one.

A new game a breathe of fresh air and one I am really enjoying. Sever issues are pretty standard with any day 1 launch. Apart from that I am having a blast. Surprisingly love the story, the scooting, and fighting mechanics are awesome! Still have a ways to go and I am thrilled to get started on that gameplay soon! Expand

    Fun gameplay. At first I thought that it is as boring as division 2 but it is very fun indeed. You don't need to hide behind covers, actuallyFun gameplay. At first I thought that it is as boring as division 2 but it is very fun indeed. You don't need to hide behind covers, actually you just can't hid for move than a sec. You got to move, shoot, heal yourself, etc etc. Very good.

    Cons: it had launch issues... server dc and so on.

In theory, this game seems really fun, looter shooter, good graphics, and cool powers. That is where this game is very strong. The story for this game is a roller coaster, it starts pretty mediocrely, then goes to its height, and then back down to its lowest point. The ending is so bad I'm surprised this came from a AAA company. Call of Duty has a better story than this game and it is sad to see. There were many bugs on release that seemed to be fixed, seems like People Can Fly still cares about this game, but there are still more bugs that I encountered after not playing the game for 2 months. The Multiplayer is somewhat good. It's cool that you can play with friends on other consoles when on PC, love games that do that and I got to give props to where it's due. Unfortunately, this game's multiplayer is super laggy, sometimes bullets from enemies don't even exist, and sometimes you will get shot through walls if you are not hosting. The game is also super laggy when you are not the host. After you beat the 10-hour story, you will be able to play destiny like nightfalls but with the previous missions. Beating all 15 of the missions will allow you to do a final boss fight, which is the same boss you fight when you beat the game just in a different area with different powers. When this game was announced I was hoping it wouldn't be an Anthem clone but unfortunately, it was. I would say give this game a try when it's on sale for $25. There are still side missions and extras but I don't feel encouraged to complete them. Expand

    This is a badly designed game. Let's ignore the game insert politic of real life into it, the game has multiple problem

    1st Is requiring single player to have online connection to play the game, while multiplayer does not have dedicating server.
    2nd Controller is nearly unusable in this game, you are constantly have to correct your aim.
    3rd No hip shooting, in every normal game aiming will enhance distance enemy, you can shoot without aiming just fine, but in this stupid game, if you dont aim, you wont have the aim circle to allow you to shoot close enemy.
    4th Using gear of war system here is a retard idea, the game is fast pace with multiple enemy rushing and tanking your shots, but the game does not allow you to jump, dash or crouch. Not only that, the cover system of gear of war + camera angle result in you will constantly being sucked into wall, preventing you from moving fast. In order word, the covering is not for you, it is for the enemy, these covering are obstacle for you.

    I am amazed that a lot of youtube reviewer give this badly designed game higher than average score.

With one of the worst launches in history for a game that is not a game as a service. with massive service issues disconnect the game is virtually unplayable, at least to be able to get any enjoyment out of it. Then the propriety of the devs is to take what fun there is in the game out before they fix the connectivity issues and coop issues. This game is a hot pile of garbage and would be a decent purchase at under $10 from a bargin bin. Expand
