Top Critic Average
A slick looking racer that’s maybe a little too slick in the corners.
Overall, Redout is an amazing racing game and by far the best anti-gravity one on Nintendo Switch. It offers simplistic but meaningful customization, diverse environments, and RPG-like mechanics that provide replay ability, all without sacrificing performance for the most part
While it may not be consistent eye candy especially when playing undocked, its contents, gameplay, and attainable goals make it an easy game to pick up if you’re looking for something insanely fast, fun, and entertaining.
Redout is a decent racing experience overall, chiefly for fans of moribund franchises like WipEout and F-Zero.
Redout on Nintendo Switch is a compromise between technical limitations and excellent gameplay.

It’s a pretty good game, but there’s a lingering sense that Redout could’ve been so much more if it were buffed up in a few key areas.
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.
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 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.

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.
