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

Outriders could have become a successful looter-shooter/MMO, but the server issues and macro developer mistakes place the game below other equals. Shortcomings in the narrative, dialogues, sound effects, and AI are so severe that can not be overlooked. The game has impressive looting and customization (the singular thing that does right!), but the repetitive gameplay, unbalanced difficulty and especially server connection issues, and unavailability of the coop with friends offer nothing but frustration and disappointment. You should really leave this game aside.

After a disastrous launch People Can Fly's third-person sci-fi adventure emerges as a smart if familiar shooter.

Buried by an unsatisfying combat loop and bad campaign, Outriders is a forgettable loot game that ends right as it's getting started.

Outriders is a brash and bold looter shooter that will keep you entertained through the campaign and side missions, but its endgame content gets repetitive fast.

A surprising, old school looter propped up by a contained sci-fi campaign, ferocious combat, and a modding system that encourages endless creativity.

Taking to combat and combo-ing skills with other players is immensely satisfying and make each run-in with enemies feel exhilarating rather than a chore

That's a huge letdown, because the encounters feel tuned for co-op rather than solo play. Playing alone, I could feel the absence of other players; although enemies are tougher when playing with friends, having another person to divert a boss' attention feels more natural than having you and a boss circle a pillar as you whittle down its health, or slowly working your way through the unrelenting hail of bullets that some of the later encounters subject you to. You also get to revive your friends in multiplayer (you even get one self-revive), which makes some of the tougher fights a little easier.

People Can Fly's Outriders mixes a lot of well-worn shooter and RPG elements to create something that feels fresh, if you can get used to its balance.
