  • Summary: Out of cash, out of luck, out on the fringe. Juno Markev has a killer to tail, a debt to pay, and more trouble headed her way. In the Dodge Sector it’s hard to get by – and even harder to get even.

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, like the first, is a single-player only affair, which might disappoint some. It shouldn’t, though. There are easily tens of hours worth of adventure in just a single playthrough. With the ability to take different paths, replayability is high. Outlaw improves on an already great game in all the right ways and the result is the best open-space adventure in years.

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw represents a true spiritual successor to Freelancer and similar games. If you are a fan of spaceship shooters and simulators this game is a must-have. Even with a few minor faults, it is worth the admission ticket.

    This is a modern-looking homage to Chris Roberts’ space classics, especially Privateer and Freelancer, and one of the best space games you can get right now.

    Outlaw is a throwback to the roots of spacesim genre, a visual aid that shows where it all began and helps to understand just how far the genre has evolved since then. And the lesson to take is this: let the past stay in the past. [Issue#241, p.40]

    Anyone who likes the idea of being a bounty hunter in space will enjoy their time with Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. Just don’t expect the casino to blow you away.

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw takes the space flight simulator genre and grinds a fantastic Wild West narrative into it the likes we have only ever seen with the beloved Firefly TV series. Sporting a brilliant soundtrack to reinforce the narrative, amazing explosions, and some pretty fun dog-fighting, the game starts to stumble when it comes to its total lack of tutorial despite having multiple systems to learn both in flight and in its mini-games. As a title that would work best with a controller in hand, Double Damages partnership with the Epic Store severely hinders accessible input controls. It does offer custom soundtracks, multiple ways to play the game and guilds to join, and the freedom of trying to achieve your goals out in the black as you see fit. For fans of space flight sims, this game is a beauty to play if only it could be handled with a controller.

    Great game, dont let EPIC haters fool you by skewing the reviews, greasy explosions well over 20+++hrs of great music. Reminds me of the oldGreat game, dont let EPIC haters fool you by skewing the reviews, greasy explosions well over 20+++hrs of great music. Reminds me of the old space sim days, theres even a few games 'asteroids' dice poker, pool. Nice greasy explosions, slight learning curve but the Devs made it simple, and took out Alot of grind that you see in games today. The game can be easier or much much harder if you want it to be. The dev's reccomend a controller, but there's HOTAS support, and for players who are new to space combat theres a lot of aids, and assists as well as an auto pursuit feature if you just want to jump in the game. OR choose the old school mode, starts with nothing and all asists off. I would like to see them make the contols layout easier to understand, but its nothing major, and everything works. The dev team is very dedicated, and is releasing minor patches , but ive just been having a blast with no issues. GTX1070 I5 6600k, 16gb ram. Expand

It seems to put the focus on fun, rather than super-realism. I like fun. I like blowing things up. There's lots of explosions. The voice acting is pretty decent too. The one liners when fighting people are pretty great!
    One of my favorite games growing up was Wing Commander: Privateer. If you played that and enjoyed it at all, you owe it to yourself to check this game out!
    If you want a super realistic space sim, with a super dynamic economy, rendering the entire mikly way.... this isn't it.
    If you want to have fun blowing stuff up in space while rocking out to a great soundtrack, this is definitely it.

    Amazing arcade type space game! This game plays extremely well the way it was intended to which is using a game-pad that is the recommendedAmazing arcade type space game! This game plays extremely well the way it was intended to which is using a game-pad that is the recommended play style and with a game-pad the game is excellent!

    The story is quite good actually I found it more enjoyable then the first, the graphics are very well and the game is extremely well optimized! On my 1060 with a Ryzen 5 2600 I get a solid 60FPS on the highest settings at 1080p.
    The game however is not without faults some of those can be a tad annoying such as engaging in combat with lower ranged weaponry and the NPC's talking to you which will prevent you from viewing the enemy ship range meaning you either fire and waste power or wait for the chat to end and see the distance, another issue is the save system and as much as I enjoy it actually saving more often this does bring up issues where it can save mid mission and if that mission is too difficult you may be stuck in a combat loop forcing you to restart the entire game since the game does not allow you to re load the save from a certain point such as when you docked at the station. I have also encountered a strange bug where on occasion when approaching a station without enemies I immediately lose shields and take massive module damage for no apparent reason and this is quite annoying as heavily damaged modules are not cheap to repair.

    Now onto music, the music in RGO is quite impressive it has a massive array songs ready to play and several stations of differing genres to choose from, it even includes a neat little streamer mode so it only plays songs that you can use in your videos without issues! You can even add your own custom music which can be set as the combat music, station music, or idle music and even create a custom mix tape that shows up in the radio menu.

    If you are looking for a space arcade type game (not to be confused with space sims such as Elite Dangerous) then this game is worth the $30, its quick to pick up and has plenty of action!

The plot is stupid typical B-movie stuff with space Rednecks and aliens and they all look like toys (even the spaceships look like toys inspired by a Kids tv show) completely forgettable story with meh characters. The graphics they are very cartoonish (Borderlands art style yuck !!!) nothing special to write about as for the controls they are confusing and badly remapped in the PC version you have to search the keyboard options menu to find how everything works and the mouse control during combat it's bad you have to use the autolock game system just to make the targeting easier LOL !!!. There is not even a Tutorial in this game and it's supposedly a 2019 title for god shake.. At the end it's just a poorly made arcade and nothing more than that don't waste money for this wait for something better Expand
