A pretty but repetitive space shooter.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
