    Not one boring second during battles, and getting new gear never gets tired. Outriders works very well.

    Outriders is an exciting evolution of the third-person shooter genre, with thrilling sci-fi powers and satisfying gunplay that makes nearly every battle feel fast-paced and gripping until the last enemy drops. The memorable planet of Enoch alongside a steady flow of loot with plenty of promising ways to mod and enhance your weapons and armor are both strong motivators to see the game to its conclusion and beyond, even when the story does little to intrigue and the server issues plague both the solo and co-op experiences. Additional mission variety could have helped keep the game feel fresh for a little while longer, but with such deep and engaging combat that evolves alongside the player thanks to the innovative world tier system, Outriders is sure to please players looking for the next great looter shooter.

    Though it lacks invention, the solid narrative approach and satisfying endgame ensures Outriders escapes the repetitive trappings of the loot shooter genre. [Issue#1, p.72]

    A cooperative game with fast pace, and though it has some technical issues and a lot of loading screens, the game will still give you tens of hours of gameplay.

    Outriders is a rare example of a complete looter-shooter, with fun combat mechanics but a lack of ambition as you play through the story and its endgame.

    Outriders blends frenetic combat and hard hitting class skills to make each encounter feel tense and rewarding. Chasing loot drops and collecting mods to bolster your collection is as addictive as using storm whip on vulnerable foes. The presentation makes it hard to connect with the characters, but players willing to read a lot may be surprised by how much thought has been put into things behind the scenes. With the current state of problems however, waiting a bit longer for things to get sorted out is recommended.

    Outriders is its own greatest victim. There are some decent ideas in here – an absorbing cauldron of combat variables, some majestic geography, even a few guns worth holding onto – but they're dragged down and suffocated by a game that doesn't want to entertain you but hypnotise you with the prospect of another trinket.

Néanmoins, le jeu prend une autre tournure lorsque vous combinez les pouvoirs entre les différentes classes. Un vrai aspect tactique prend place dans les modes de difficultés très corsés.
    Je le recommande bien évidemment pour le plaisir que cela procure entre potes, si vous êtes allergique au coté décalé de Borderlands. Pour la partie solo passez votre chemin. Le jeu ne vous procurera aucune sensations. Aussi bien au niveau du gameplay que du scénario.

    What a disappointment. Played it for free on GamePass and still don't think it was worth my time. Just get Division 2 or Destiny 2, much better games.

    Game is fun but for 4 days it has taken me 30+ minutes to log in. They should be embarrassed.
