Even with the small faults it has, that doesn’t keep Space Assault from being a great time. The action is both familiar and fun, the visuals are pretty great, and at the price of 10 bucks, you can’t really beat it. I had a great time with Redout: Space Assault; it brought back some old fond memories and let me feel like an ace space pilot with some simple controls that anyone can pick up and play. If you’re a fan of Star Fox, this is one that you don’t want to miss.

Italian developer 34BigThings is shifting gears a bit with Redout: Space Assault. A prequel to 2016's spaceship racing game, we're now being treated to a (heavily) Star Fox-inspired experience. Strap in as a young pilot, fight the resistance, and blow your ship up a lot.

Redout: Space Assault is an aestetically brilliant rail shooter, with a casual-gamer oriented gameplay but a lot of sci-fi appeal. Pleasant graphics, good sountrack and low price.

Racing pirates through the canyons of asteroids, or getting a multi-lock on a huge swarm of enemies as you dodge incoming fire is just as exciting as it should be. Redout: Space Assault gets very close to being something truly special. I would say I look forward to seeing them nail it with the next entry, but based on the series thus far, Redout 3 is likely to be a puzzle game or maybe a first-person shooter.

RedOut: Space Assault reminds of classic on-rails shooters like Star Fox 64 and Rez, adding much more content and a satisfying spaceship development mechanic. It might not be as memorable as those classics, but it's definitely a suggested get for lovers of the genre.

Its phone-based origin is clear. The big battles are, at first, fun and exciting. But the fourth or fifth time when almost the same scenarios appear it is hard to summon the energy to do it all again. More variety is needed to make this on-tails space combat experience attractive in the long term.

In its primary aspects, the game lacks a backbone, which translates into a scarcity of true action and adrenaline, especially in situations where one would expect them such as bossfights and competitions which are portrayed minimally. This makes the game feel repetitive, being sometimes enjoyable but without any of the exciting peaks that one would expect to feel from the Redout races.

A competent (mostly) rail-shooter with nice graphics and very simple gameplay.

If you're a fan of on-rails shooters, Redout: Space Assault is an enjoyable, if limited, addition to the genre.

While there is plenty to like about Redout: Space Assault, it just doesn't do enough to distinguish itself from the iOS outing. Mechanics issues, not to mention sporadic difficulty spikes, plague the progression through the campaign and rob players of what could've otherwise been a memorable experience. Buckle up, because it's coming in for an extremely bumpy landing.

Redout: Space Assault isn't a bad game by any means, it just isn't an exceptional one either. This is a bargain bin game, the kind of thing that's worth a few hours of your time after you've picked it up on a deep sale. Intense shooting action and outstanding visuals languish in the shadow of repetitive design and generally shallow gameplay, making for an experience that's just pretty good once all is said and done, but hardly something that's going to top genre lists at the close of 2021. If you like Star Fox and are simply desperate for something to fill that void, this may be a good buy right away. Otherwise, wait it out and maybe play this one a while down the road.

Redout: Space Assault is a reminder that I should fire up Star Wars: Squadrons again. While it's visually appealing given its discount price, it fails to deliver fun and engaging mechanics. If you want an indie and don't dig on Star Wars, there's House of the Dying Sun, an excellent indie that's over four years old and retails for $20. Even in a genre as niche as the space shooter, there are better options available.

Most players will probably blast through Redout: Space Assault in just a few hours. It’s a game that doesn’t try to do anything special, but it provides enough entertainment, particularly if you enjoy some arcade-style space-shooting action. And for less than a tenner, that’s fair enough.

It may offer solid space combat but Redout: Space Assault's lack of ambition to try anything new holds it back from being special.

For a game that was clearly inspired by Star Fox, I was saddened to find that it was devoid of the charm that made those games so great.

Evaluating the complete package, Redout: Space Assault is just one more on the market. The game has beautiful visuals and some good ideas, but there are serious problems with elements like the story and the gameplay. In other words, the game is functional and may even be interesting for some players, but it only takes some time to notice the issues.

Having enjoying the racing game Redout, I was looking forward to seeing the developer’s take on the space shooting genre. They got some things right, especially the on-rails sections and creating a nice sense of speed, but there’s enough rough edges coupled with a lack of depth that relegates Redout: Space Assault to simply being an average, budget entry into the genre.

Although it tries to shake up the shooter forumal, Redout: Space Assault doesn't fully succeed, with a lack of clear instructions and a control scheme that's not intuitive. Although there's plenty of action, it's not as satisfying as it should be to shoot your way through space.

Redout Space Assault feels like two games; an enjoyable arcade shooter on rails, and a free-movement space-sim with no exploration. Glitches, unbalanced difficulty, and a lack of any worthwhile story weigh down what could have been much better.

There’s fun to be had, but you have to dig really deep to find it. When the game is working, blasting through these levels in just a couple of minutes is the perfect time to be in a level, without it feeling like a waste of time. It’s a shame then that it’s good moments are overshadowed by so many of its flaws. Redout: Space Assault had the potential to be as exciting as refreshing as 34BigThings did with the original Redout, but instead has shallow gameplay, lackluster visuals, and is riddled with bugs from small to big that showcase that it wasn’t ready for the transition to more powerful systems.

Don't be fooled by the impressive visuals. This dated and deeply unsatisfying arcade shooter manages to make space combat feel flimsy, boring and anything but immersive. Perhaps on a mobile phone, its limitations can be overlooked but on a console it's not worth bothering with.
