    The “old gen” versions of Outriders do not have to be ashamed of the comparison with their counterparts on next gen consoles. The weight of the years in terms of hardware is felt in the framerate, the loading times as well as the displayed resolutions, which encroaches a little on the comfort of play without being crippling, quite the contrary. The game from People Can Fly and Square Enix retains on PS4 and Xbox One all the qualities and faults of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series versions, starting with a hard-hitting combat system, an intoxicating rise to power of the avatar, a mysterious planet Enoch, but also general instability responsible for several crashes.

    While Outriders doesn’t invent any new mechanics, the story is enjoyable, and the interesting classes, gear system, and world tiers make for some very challenging but fun gameplay. There were definitely a few hiccups on release day, and there are some easy alterations that can be made to make Outriders more accessible. But I would definitely recommend picking up this title.

    There are plenty of shortcomings in Outriders - from the gameplay standpoint and to the massive number of technical hiccups. But even so, the deep and rewarding role playing system can make up for some of it. If you love the looter-shooter genre, then wait for Outriders to get a price drop, or simply try the game with Game Pass.

    TL:DR: Considering it comes free with XBGP, there’s not too much to complain about and it’s well worth playing.

    TL:DR: Considering it comes free with XBGP, there’s not too much to complain about and it’s well worth playing.

    Pro’s: -Tons of customization in how you want to play from abilities, skills, weapon types, armor, and mods. -A stripped down Diablo 3 / Destiny 2 in 3 person
    -Killing enemies is a blast
    -Story and world building are actually pretty decent

    Con’s:
    -Launch issues (mainly difficulty loading in and system crashes) but nowhere near Anthem’s issues
    -Many battle areas are literally paintball settings
    -Swarming enemies make DPS or Tank almost necessary for solo play
    -The dialog and voice acting of the protagonist is brutal at times

    If you have GP this is a must play. I doubt I’ll pour more than around 40-60 hours into it, but it’s a ton of fun. This game was on my radar for a long time and hasn’t disappointed the way Anthem or Cyberpunk did.

    I love outriders, but there are definitely some things that stop me from loving it as much as I could.
    Outriders
    Theres some potential here
    I love outriders, but there are definitely some things that stop me from loving it as much as I could.
    This is a 3rd person cover based shoote that can be played both solo and online with up to 3 players.
    I stuck to this games campaign solo and it took me about 14 hours to get through.. The game starts with you creating your own charcter, and the story here.. well it might as well not even exist.. I couldn’t tell you anything, I couldn’t even tell you how the game ends if I wanted to, basically a storm happens, youre frozen, youre unfrozen 20 years late futurama style, and you come out and wanna shoot stuff.
    The gameplay here is super fun and addictive.. most of the time.. thing gears of war meets mass effect meets the division.. obviously outriders feels nowhere near as polished and detailed as those games.. but for a first attempt in a series, this is a really good one… Something unique here that has promise but major issues is the tier system.. instead of choosing a difficulty, the game gets harder as you progress, everyone starts at story difficuolty, then you unlock easy, normal, hard, expert, and so on… however once you get to a tier you find too challenging aka too annoying youre free to drop back to any previously unlocked tier that youd like… and this is what I did on m way to tier 6, I dropped back to normal.. and why you might ask? I loved the challenge tier 5 was giving me.. however outriders is desined as a games of service game and for that reason, the checkpoints throughout the campaign are awful.. ontop of that there are insane random difficulty spikes… youll go from having an nice challenge to waves of enemies that have you wanting to bang your head against the wall, oyull get so close to the end, or completete the first wave and lose to some scrub and have to start all the way back at the beginning of wave 1 instead of the wave your died on.. enough to again make you want to drop down to normal difficulty.. however… even in normal these random spikes occur, theres even one enemy called the shaman warlord that is so unbalanced and overpowered that I had to drop down to story difficulty…
    Im sure I could have eventually beat them on normal, but story took 3 minutes, normal would’ve taken like an hour. It just wasn’t worth the effort,,, balancing in general I outriders biggest problem.. from random enemies feeling overpowered to random difficulty spikes and awful checkpoint system… so the gameplay can go from great to frustrating, the story is trash, why is outriders so good?
    Well that comes in the form of its looter hook… at the beginning of the game you choose one of 3 classes, and its so addictive to find weapons through this game and try to tailor them to your specific playstyle.. overcome these sometimes annoying challenges with a feeling god like power… as as you level up, youll choose 3 abilities to have at yoru disposal during combat… there is post game content though.. and plenty… the story mode is essentially you getting your character ready for the online bits.. even though of course you can play through the story with friends… but after the game is where leveling up your tier really starts to matter, this is where youll be challenging yourself to unlock new areas and collect all of these fallen pods…I however personally found the actual world of outriders to be pretty lack luster and uninteresting.. so naturally I have no interest in going off and grinding.. though I do believe the mechanics are fun enough here for plenty who would based on that alone…
    Outriders again has potential as a series.. would I play outriders 2? Yes…
    s again I loved the gameplay hook and Id love a sequal that balances everything out better.
    Am I clamoring for outriders 2? No.
    Again the story and world are lacking, and im not quite sure how the team over at people can fly can fix it.
    I give Outriders
    a 7.5/10

This game is a boring as hell looter-shooter, trying to poorly combine Destiny (completely copied and pasted their inventory / equipment menus), Gears of War with Mass Effect: Andromeda when it comes the story. Unfortunately, it doesn't work - it's very pretentious and uninspired; I couldn't care less for any of the characters. Shooting is very very badly done - it's just so boring that as a kid I had imaginary shootouts with friends that were much more interesting and compelling.

    Graphics are also a downside, at least on Xbox One they are on par (or worse?) than Mass Effect 1, a game from 2007. Also when it comes to the server issue - the game first deleted my first character randomly due to servers going offline, but I couldn't care less because I don't really want to come back to this game. Shame.
