Overall, Road Redemption is a brilliantly fun spiritual successor to the Road Rash series, and absolutely exceeded my expectations. Its exhilarating, and surprisingly tactical gameplay compensate for lackluster visuals and a few environmental collision issues. Road Redemption is an absolute blast to play, and I thoroughly recommend it.
For as much as I loved Road Rash, it would be hard to go back to after playing Road Redemption. This feels like the worthy successor Road Rash has always deserved. It was a little gem of a series lost in time; the only thing missing is the corny FMV cutscenes.
Из ряда одного из худших жанров (гонки), умудрилась стать одной из любимейших игр.
Возможно всё это из-за ностальгии по Road Rash на Sega, но игрушка действительно весёлая.
Если не любите гоночный жанр, то всё равно дайте ей шанс.
The spiritual successor of Road Rash, Road Redemption, offers tons of unadulterated fun. Many may find its driving too Arcady for their taste, but the rogue-like campaign experience and the tense off-road battles reward the player. The beautiful OST and a very nice old school oriented couch co-op give the game some extra lift.
The updated graphics and physics engine are sure to bring enjoyment and laughs. Road Redemption builds on a relatively simple concept that has worked in the past, repackages it, and allows the unpredictability of other players a large selection of tracks, bikes, and riders in online death races to round out a uniquely enjoyable experience.
Road Redemption comes full of entertainment and is a great Road Rash successor thanks to a local multiplayer mode and an online mode that gives us hours and hours of fun, although its difficulty could be too hard for a lot of people.
Road Redemption isn’t what I hoped it would be, and that may not be entirely the game’s fault. Nostalgia can be a cruel mistress. However, the flaws on show here do prevent the game from standing up on its own, and although it can be fun and engaging sometimes, I would recommend waiting for a price drop before picking it up.
+ addictive gameplay
+ great controller layout
+ good objective diversity
- some bland music
- too long to unlock more characters and bikes
- could use a campaign mode that is not roguelike
- getting stuck on the scenario is extremely frustrating
This game is a mess, in both terms of fun and design. The first thing you will notice is that it is extremely glitchy. In just the first level, I suffered two crashes, and one time where my bike stopped turning, drove through obstacles and ended up mysteriously at the finish line, immediately winning. These issues should have been ironed out in early access, however they seem only MORE numerous.
The spiritual successor angle they were going for reeks of marketing and not a reflection of actual gameplay, much like another recent title, Strafe. The rubber banded combat (enemies stick to you until you kill them, rather than attacking when it is strategically viable and racing ahead otherwise) feels boring, forced and lifeless, unlike the extra layer of gameplay that it provided in Road Rash. Beyond that, the feeling of progression found in the original Road Rash trilogy is completely absent here, with the game acting more like an arcade game than even the originals. Additionally, the multiplayer pales in comparison to its supposed predecessor, despite the fact that it is older than some of the fans of this game.
In the end, Road Redemption feels less like a spiritual successor to Road Rash, and more like a cousin of Ride to Hell: Retribution. The only thing it shares with the former is motorcycles and combat, but it shares the glitches, poor design choices, bad voice acting and incredibly repetitive gameplay of the latter. This is not worth twenty United States dollars, not even ten dollars. The only time I think this could be acceptable is as a four dollar phone game.
My personal opinion, the game is not OK.
- Graphics is like CS:Source. It's not beautiful but take too much system resource while running.
- Gameplay, item... are poor.
- Physics simulation is terrible.
In conclusion, the first RR is better!
