  • Summary: Redout is a tribute to the old racing monsters such as F-Zero, WipeOut, Rollcage, and POD. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre.

    Redout delivers excitement I haven’t felt since Nintendo released the last great F-Zero title over a decade ago. I don’t know if it’s the best racer I’ve ever played, but it’s almost certainly the most exhilarating, and earns its place among the very games it takes inspiration from.

    Redout delights with its fast, fluid pace and an incredible sense of speed. It's a great choice for perfectionists: although the game is very demanding and can make you gnash your teeth, every perfect lap is extremely satisfying.

    RedOut is fast and is furious. Its tight controls and spectacular tracks make it one of the best futuristic racing game out there.

    In the end, Redout is a very good racing game. It may not introduce anything completely new or revolutionize the genre, but it nails the fundamentals so well that fans will be glad that it exists. It has a great presentation and a decent track selection, while the amount of modes almost makes up for the lack of online community. If Redout represents the start of a comeback for futuristic racing, it is a good one, and genre fans will do well to pick it up.

    As its own developers admit, there’s an inspiration in games like Wipeout or F-Zero in both style and gameplay, but it manages to distance itself enough to have its own personality.

    Nails the look, the sound, and the speed, but Redout stalls on the sensation.

    PROs
    + Probably the best racing AG experience existing
    + Superlative sense of speed
    + Easy to learn, hard to master, super precise, responsive and innovative control system
    + Unmatchable aestetics: great stylized low poly style mixed with state of the art shading techniques
    + Great ships design and variety: enough choice to satisfy every player type
    + Smart, fresh and unrivaled track design (20 different tracks ATM)
    + Multiplayer works like a charm!
    + Hardcore experience. Not forgiving AI: this game is not for n00bs or crybabies

    CONs
    - Can't f*****g stop playing
    - Some minor bugs (devs said will be fixed soon)

    SUMMARY:
    This was made by a pretty much not known INDIE studio. Do you realize that???
    I played all the famous historical AG racing games, and so much time passed since the last time a I felt so much adrenaline racing. This game put you in the "ZONE" and keeps you there so well you will even forget to drink and sleep.
    This is what I was looking for: REDOUT is not only a game, but a COMPLETE EXPERIENCE.
    11/10 can't recommend enough.

    PS: Even my friends that are not inside racing games are loving it!

    The sense of speed is amazing, and it will take some time to become a pro on those tight curves: turn+steer+nose up+turbo (brakes? what brakes?)
    Developers did a great job on the ships physics and controls are very responsive even if you are a seasoned PC gamer and prefer using the keyboard instead of pad.
    There are also some minor flaws, like screen resolution and controls not so easily customizable, but I don't bother, they will surely be patched in the near future.
    Can't wait to try it on VR, thumbs up for the very fitting soundtrack too.

    OK guys, now THIS is podracing!

    As a fan of the futuristic racing/anti gravity racing genre I think this is the first good game in the genre since wipeout fury.As a fan of the futuristic racing/anti gravity racing genre I think this is the first good game in the genre since wipeout fury.

    Performance is flawless (and no stupid 60 fps cap, you can play it at 120 or 144 hz or even higher) , the control scheme is unique and works really really well once you learn how it works, there is a very rewarding learning curve and the sense of speed is probably the best in the genre since extreme g3.

    Only minor complaint is that there's no seperate settings for blur etc (it's all under 'post processing') and that there seems to be no way to downsample. The game has a resolution slider but it's a 0-100 percent one, with no way to select higher resolutions for DSR.

    After the genre getting completely abandoned by all publishers (including Sony, who closed the wipeout studio, shame on them!) it's good to finally get another great game in this genre after all these years.

    And the best thing is that it's on PC

    This game is going to be considered a classic in a few years I think.

    This is a review of the VR mode:

    It's not quite as good as Wipeout on the PSVR and the courses feel less 3D than some other VR titles.

    It's not quite as good as Wipeout on the PSVR and the courses feel less 3D than some other VR titles. That being said, it is still a fantastic game, with lots of content. Hours of gameplay, and a good difficulty curve. Especially if you don't have PSVR, this is an essential VR purchase.
