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.
The amount of content stuffed in here makes the game a really good value for the asking price. It's worth a pickup, but make sure you prepare yourself for a serious test of skill.
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.
Without a doubt, this is one of the fastest games we've ever played and you won't be able to blink as landscapes zoom past you and you leave your opponents in the dust. Redout is just the game that all fast sci-fi racing fans have long been waiting for.
A brilliant and visually incredible ride that proves itself worthy of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the titans of the sci-fi racer world
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.
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.

Redout is a decent racing experience overall, chiefly for fans of moribund franchises like WipEout and F-Zero.
An amazing take on the Wipeout formula, and available on more platforms. Redout clearly knows what it’s doing and just pushes speed, speed and more speed at the player. Though perhaps too much.
Redout is a hyperfast racing experience aimed at the more hardcore player. Its colorful artstyle and music make it one of the highest quality indie titles developed yet.
