Redout expects your full commitment in every moment. The ultra fast races on well designed tracks combined with the dynamic soundtrack and a decent variety of ships make for an unbelievable adrenaline rush. Check out the free demo if you're unsure.

A slick looking racer that’s maybe a little too slick in the corners.

Redout is wonderful take on a game series that is beloved but almost forgotten in this age of hyper realism. Tight controls, smooth gameplay, fantastic music, and great overall design make this a must download for all racing game fans.

RedOut is a superb indie game. If you enjoyed Wipeout or F-Zero, you'll love this new title. Despite the simplistic powerup system and the not so perfect career, RedOut offers one of the best futuristic race experiences out there.

Redout has been one of the best VR experiences I have had to date. The virtual reality helps to create a genuine sense of speed, the racing is fun and unique, there are plenty of things to do to progress the career mode and the overall presentation helps to sell the futuristic setting. Racing fans will find a lot to like here.

In the end, Redout is a very good racing game. It may not introduce anything completely new or revolutionize the genre, but it nails the fundamentals so well that fans will be glad that it exists. It has a great presentation and a decent track selection, while the amount of modes almost makes up for the lack of online community. If Redout represents the start of a comeback for futuristic racing, it is a good one, and genre fans will do well to pick it up.

Redout is one of the most delightfully high-octane, edge-of-my-seat racing games in recent memory. It's a thrilling adrenaline rush of an experience. It's a finely-tuned joyride that's been polished and balanced until it shines in a cornucopia of flashy colours.

Oddly released within a similar window of its direct competition, Wipeout, Redout manages to offer its own brand of break-neck racing, exceeding any possible pretenses of appearing as mere imitation.

If you liked Wipeout or F-Zero, you're going to be right at home with Redout. Fast, sleek, pretty and has just about the right amount of challenge. If you can overlook the rubber banding issue and desktop resolution configuration, Redout, is your best bet if you're the market for racing title that you can pass the time with.

Redout is an ambitious attempt to recapture the glory of futuristic racing games, while paying homage to WipEout. The game's controls and responsiveness have been fine-tuned to make the hardest of tracks very interesting and engaging to race across at supersonic speeds. Redout is an example of a game that's given and old formula another coat of paint, but it could also mean the beginning of another futuristic racer franchise, in the absence of a true contemporary from Sony.

GOOD - Redout features hyper fast racing and looks visually stunning when playing on the TV. Controls are sharp and fluid, but a completely dead online multiplayer and no local play option was disappointing, and the visual fidelity in handheld mode leaves much to be desired. The $40 asking price is double the competition, like Fast RMX, but Redout features a ton of tracks and modes and futuristic racing fans will definitely find a lot to like here.

With releasing Red Out, 34 Big Things studios showed us how can they create a good and fast competitive racing game. Redout is for fast racing enthusiasts and probably only these kind of people enjoy playing it. Despite great graphics and smooth gameplay, the game has some problems. Like a bad upgrade mechanics and few vehicles and these problems make the game suffer.

When it's on top of its game, Redout is a nuanced, no-nonsense anti-gravity racing experience for your inner speed demon to gorge itself on. When it's not on top of its game… well, it's still pretty good.

Redout is an impressive, gorgeous throwback to futuristic racing games of yesterday that comes so, so close to nailing it. Some bizarre decisions relating to vehicle upgrades and difficulty make you question whether 34BigThings understood what made those classics tick in the first place, but it's just about salvaged by some great track design and slick performance.

In addition to that, unless you want to keep trying for your best score in each track offline, you're not going to want to come back to the game — not many people are playing online. While the game is most certainly fun and unique, I cannot recommend the game for $40 to most people. If you're a racing fan, and you're getting bored with the genre, then this offers something new and fresh, but beyond that, it's probably worth waiting for a small discount.

Redout could be a far better futuristic racer, with just a liiitle bit better controls, just a liiitle bit of variety, and just a liiitle bit of originality. It presents arms to the genre's big ones in a pretty decent way for an indie production… but it could do more than that.
