Overall, Redout is an amazing racing game and by far the best anti-gravity one on Nintendo Switch. It offers simplistic but meaningful customization, diverse environments, and RPG-like mechanics that provide replay ability, all without sacrificing performance for the most part. There was only one thing that was a big turn-off for me, and that was it’s online multiplayer.
With questionable graphics interrupting the gameplay every now and then, the visuals may become the game’s undoing for players looking for a high-resolution racer. Fortunately, Redout offers a lot of different modes of play and numerous challenges to keep one entertained, so much so that some of the dips in visuals can be partially forgiven if you are willing to accept it. While it may not be consistent eye candy especially when playing undocked, its contents, gameplay, and attainable goals make it an easy game to pick up if you’re looking for something insanely fast, fun, and entertaining.
It’s a pretty good game, but there’s a lingering sense that Redout could’ve been so much more if it were buffed up in a few key areas. The lacklustre online, complete omission of local multiplayer, and the overall shoddy performance hold this one back from being something great, and it’s a real shame. Even so, the stellar art style, catchy soundtrack, and in-depth career mode ensure that it’s a satisfying experience for those who can put up with the difficulty.
