Top Critic Average
Redout is a game with beautiful visuals and great music to go with its incredibly enjoyable, fast-paced, and challenging gameplay. I do wish there was a local multiplayer mode and not just the seemingly dead online multiplayer, but there’s a wealth of single-player content with over 200 missions in its career mode that I wasn’t able to get all the way through in the roughly 20 hours I have between the Switch and PC versions. There’s a decent amount of variety through the different event types, ships, and stages, and with how much fun the racing itself is, even just knocking out a quick single race is a good time. It runs for $39.99 USD, not a bad price considering the surprising length of the career mode. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who misses F-Zero, or whoever wants a fun, fast, challenging sci-fi racer.
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.
