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

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

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 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.

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.

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.

Redout: Space Assault dabbles in numerous space shooter concepts but doesn't strike a chord with any of them.

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.

In no way, shape or form could Redout: Space Assault be considered required playing.
