    Redeemer: Enhanced Edition, although not quite as robust as its contemporaries, is one hell of a bloody good game. Everything from its progression, its pacing, and its core functionality, right through to its combat diversity and its play depth, remains constantly gratifying and energetic throughout. Despite some issues with its performance and its insipid level design, fans of the brawler concept will absolutely love what’s on offer here.

    Redeemer – Enhanced Edition is a game that is more than worthy of your time. If you enjoy Diablo 3, any game in a similar style is always welcome, and even if you don’t, this is still just an unfettered joy.

    If you want to smash some skulls with a chum then you will certainly enjoy the super-violent Redeemer: Enhanced Edition.

    Redeemer: Enhanced Edition was a fun distraction for a few hours, but it’s very repetitive, and once you’ve completed it, there’s no real reason to go back and do so again unless you really want to challenge yourself with the harder difficulties. At $38.99, it has priced itself out of the market, especially if you have a capable PC and can get it for much less than half of that elsewhere. If you’re seriously needing a fix of an ultra violent brawler, it’s a decent playthrough, but there’s no real lasting appeal afterwards.

    Redeemer is a deeply flawed game that manages to provide moments of fun but too often feels frustrating and under-developed.

    Redeemer Enhanced Edition is quite fun to pick up and play for a bit. However, performance issues and an obvious lack of scaling for single-player keeps the game from being anything other than somewhat disappointing.

    It’s a solid brawler that hits hard and delivers a fun action movie good time for a few hours. However, that admittedly standard gameplay doesn’t make up for all the problems, and nothing from this equation makes it worth a $30 asking price.

    Redeemer is an In-Your-Face top-down hack and slash/shooter with an attitude. Once a soldier, you play as Vasily, who left his past in hopesRedeemer is an In-Your-Face top-down hack and slash/shooter with an attitude. Once a soldier, you play as Vasily, who left his past in hopes of a peaceful future as a monk, until his past come in to crash his party. Most of your brother monks dead, including your mentor, you now seek vengeance on the affiliation you once served. With parts of his past remembered through the cut-scenes, you learn why Vasily came to be where he is. The game play is fast paced and brutal, with ample weapons, and environmental hazards to use in dispatching your enemies, the action is nearly nonstop. The stages are fairly linear with little in the way of exploration, with the exception of a few hidden scrolls and tablets to find. As you progress and find these tablets and scrolls you gain access to attacks, and abilities, broken between your Soldier training, and your Monk training. The game play gets repetitive at times, but that's to be expected from a Beat-Em-Up game. Skull bashing combos and devastating finishers are the bread and butter of this game, once the combat system is learned you can near effortlessly string attacks from one enemy to another, countering the whole way. If you like seriously visceral Beat-Em-Up Hack and Slash game play, Redeemer has that covered, what it lacks in exploration it compensates well with obliterating bad guys. Expand
