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.
