    Redout 2 is a beautiful-looking, anti-gravity racing game that has you driving at ridiculously fast speeds. This difficulty level is pretty high, but if you are willing to practise and hone your skills you will definitely be rewarded.

    A love letters to antigrav fans everywhere. I miss the option of sending a missile to the rear end of other ships, but the driving is pure poetry.

    Redout 2 is a profound revision of the concept of the first chapter, finally blessed by a budget that allows the crazy artistic direction to free themselves from the limits of the past to create an experience that is at times incomparable. New events, airships and locations, reinforce the identity of a title that was born as a tribute to the masters of the genre such as Wipeout and F-Zero but which today has taken its own path, a path oriented towards pure driving skills. You have to try and try again for a long time to be able to internalize the controls, the totally crazy speeds and the complexity of the layout of the tracks, but Redout 2 knows how to reward the most tenacious with a complete and satisfying experience like few others.

    Redout 2 is brutal, beautiful, and insanely fast. This is the first anti-grav racing sim, and we didn’t even have to wait until 2048 to get started.

    Redout 2 is a spectacle that will have players on the edge of their seat. Just be warned; one will need to cut their teeth with its difficulty curve – one best bring their A game.

    Redout 2 is designed for hardcore gamers, who will be able to reach satisfactions thanks to the improvement of physics and the implementation of a control system which, despite being complex, allow to master all the necessary movements. The offer is much richer and has tangible visual improvements, even if some aspects deserve to be refined. All the newbies are warned: Redout 2 is difficult and far from accessible.

    While Redout 2 is a fun experience for the single player, it definitely lacks in a lot of areas and can become overwhelming to a lot of players for a myriad of reasons. The game's AI is also very incompetently designed with incredibly slingshot-like rubberbanding that makes competitors look like absolute klutzes when you're falling behind them or like they have hyperspeed devices on the slightest advantage. Everything is locked behind stages while most of the unlockables are just cosmetics rather than any substantial upgrades.

    Very bad conoared to redout 1. Longer and tighter tracks with nothing to remember, boring generic edm music, ships are all stiffer, carrerVery bad conoared to redout 1. Longer and tighter tracks with nothing to remember, boring generic edm music, ships are all stiffer, carrer progress is very bad, since you start with specific vehicle and you unlock at specific career races other crafts, extremely difficult for no reason, no upgrades as on 1, no magnetic stabilizer, no slipstream emhancer, the main mechanic of the game is double bust until you overheat, very bad..
