    No matter what Vasily uses – an ax, a hammer or even bare fists – he does it with that special oomph. Fights are brief and often end with a bone-crunching fatality; and if there is something like a stake or a saw table nearby, the enemy will meet an especially gruesome death. Firearms are also impressive: even a pistol is a weapon to be reckoned with, while shotgun’s effect is outright terrifying. [Issue#222, p.64]

    Redeemer offers a very satisfying mix of good old top-down shooters and modern video games.

    While the action is visceral and filled with brutal finishers, the battle system is facetted, yet not too complex. Too bad that the mechanics were wasted on mostly boring level design.

    If you don't have mad skills or lots of patience, keep away from Redeemer. But if you like bloody gameplay with a really high difficulty level - remember this one. The second half becomes boring and there are some technical issues but its fierce attitude, pretty graphics and low price make it worth your while.

    It’s a pure beat ‘em up game, with satisfying and fast combat albeit without any effort to provide anything we haven’t seen before. Its repetitive nature goes without saying, raising the guilt part of this guilty pleasure offering exponentially with each passing hour.

    Initially, I was really taken with Redeemer. The violent action, slick controls and impressive visuals made a great first impression. After three hours of play, however, it became a slog to work through.

    Awful game design meets nonsensical story. Oh, and rivers of blood.

    Bought it on sale and certainly don't regret the £4 I spent on it. I've only played a couple of sessions on it thus far, but am enjoyingBought it on sale and certainly don't regret the £4 I spent on it. I've only played a couple of sessions on it thus far, but am enjoying unleashing a festival violence upon my enemies a great deal.
    It sits somewhere between Hotline Miami 2 (it's a violent "top down" game that requires the player to systematically clear levels of enemies), and the Batman Arkham games (in that you perform punches/kicks/dodges/counters to create seamless combos). The sheer amount of ultra-violent take-downs, using a variety of weapons and your environment is very impressive and makes you want to use all the tools at your disposal in order to be rewarded with a suitably gory, animated kill.
    Their is the odd graphical glitch, some uninspired cut-scenes and fairly repetitive game-play, but despite this I'm really enjoying myself thus far and look forward to attempting speed-runs and other challenges once I've finished wreaking my revenge.

    If you liked Hotline Miami, then you will love this game. Good isometric shooter... that's what Redeemer is. Pickens approves!

With a simple but potentially complex combat system that is similar to the Batman Arkham games and a well-paced narrative to keep players hooked, Redeemer is one of the best games this year. I am looking forward to what Sobak Studios does next. According to them, their goal is to create challenging action games with a lot of fun and juicy gameplay Expand
