There are very few things wrong with Immortal Redneck. With all of the different enemies, guns, characters, and levels to try, it will be hard to put this game down.
We are talking about a very simple game that offers a significant amount of levels and entertainment for many hours. It has a very high replayability factor, but can end up being repetitive after long play sessions.

Immortal Redneck's loop is dead simple: play some, upgrade, play more, buy the item that lets you skip past the mid-boss, play some, upgrade, then confront the final boss. But you know what -- it's a blast, and I never really thought of any of the above as work. While the roguelike setup will no doubt scare some people off (you do you, reader), anyone looking to temporarily transport themselves back through the ages of FPS-dom without making concessions should give it a chance.
Immortal Redneck's melting pot of genres is a success. Regardless of whether you came for the shooting or the roguelite aspects, you'll be pleased with the handling of the two genres.
Immortal Redneck is an exciting roguelike FPS with enjoyable procedurally generated dungeons that encourage fast-paced gunplay. Although it can be repetitive at points, it has a fair but challenging difficulty curve and a wide variety of enemies, weapons, and abilities that keep things interesting. If you're looking for something to really get wrapped up in, then Immortal Redneck is well worth your time.
Its visual and audio niggles aside, Immortal Redneck is an absolute blast. By combining well-crafted room design with randomly generated maps and then giving the player the ability to smoothly run, leap and blast through them with all the grace of a shotgun-wielding swan while constantly upgrading their abilities, it offers a massively satisfying experience that's likely to remain permanently installed on your Switch long after you've deleted other games to make space.
For fans of old school shooters and the rouge-lite setup of games like Rogue Legacy then it's well worth equipping Grandpa's Blunderbuss and venturing into a pyramid filled with adorable but dangerous snakes and flying skulls.
While Immortal Redneck doesn't necessarily bring anything new to the table, it does successfully combine the speed of old-school FPS like Unreal Tournament and Quake with roguelike elements to make a pretty fun little game worth your time if you don't mind a little grind.
Immortal Redneck is a fun fast paced first person shooter, and getting to the top of the pyramid is a huge grind as you will need to spend plenty of money on upgrades to have a shot at reaching the top.
Immortal Redneck reached what it aimed for. It challenges you, the addictive gameplay and gunplay makes you come back to its world and thanks to its smart progression system you'll be happy with your time spent. Except some enemy design problems (frogs!) and unfunny jokes, Immortal Redneck succeeds at providing an entertaining experience that doesn't try to have any innovation and remarkable achievement.

Immortal Redneck is a very fun roguelite first-person shooter on Nintendo Switch that you should check out. It's very entertaining, has a lot of content for you to enjoy this procedurally generated release. The game is very addictive, and every time you die you are left with that “just one more run” feeling that is always very fun. During my time playing the game for this review, one night I thought I had played the game for around 30 minutes or so, but when I checked my watch, I realized it was 1:30 a.m. It turns out I had been playing for a couple of hours non-stop!
Immortal Redneck manages to feel punishing, yet fair. Rewards are doled out frequently enough that almost every run ends with the ability to upgrade something on the skill tree, allowing the game to maintain a forward momentum that makes it difficult to put down.
Whether you’re an FPS fan or not, Immortal Redneck is a game that you should take out of your backlog and try it out for yourself. It isn’t something that demands all your attention, you can take your time or just speed run it as best as you can. What’s more, if you’re looking for a challenge I honestly couldn’t think of recommending any other game than this one.
With clever integration with Twitch to change up how the game can be played, Crema have ideas that work well. In making connections to games like Rogue Legacy and Ziggurat, they were only the building blocks of what Immortal Redneck is, a game with its own ideas and systems that stand above its contemporaries. Immortal Redneck is a game so silly it just works, and the jokes land well – I laughed until I was Horus.
As a whole package Immortal Redneck is a bold first step and demonstrates that the FPS genre, too, can definitely benefit from the addition of roguelike elements. As you unlock your skill tree you won’t feel quite as helpless and will hopefully stumble into a starting configuration that helps you kick some ass in earnest. When you’re just in the zone and shooting things up for the most part everything feels good, it’s really only when you have to try to complete some jumping puzzles that things start to unravel. The good thing is that in any given run you may not notice the problem almost at all since everything is generated procedurally, just when you need to do some jumping and have enemies coming at you at the same time that it can feel a bit unfair. I look forward to more attempts on this formula as it shows a great deal of potential for further fun.
Immortal Redneck is a fun roguelite first person shooter that will provide countless hours of enjoyment for action enthusiasts thanks to its fast paced combat and randomized level layouts.
Immortal Redneck is an old-school first-person roguelike with all the bells and whistles. It's tough but fair, fun and steeped in a silly aesthetic. Perfect for a reliable departure from your backlog.
Immortal Redneck is a fast paced FPS that has a lot of enjoyable aspects and replay value. With over 50 weapons to choose from, there is no lack of fun and exciting firepower at your disposal. The biggest problem I had with the game was the scroll system, repetitive temples, and what felt like an unrewarding grind. Overall, Immortal Redneck is well worth playing.
Immortal Redneck is ultimately a simple, fun game that is hard to master. Constantly replaying the same pyramid in order to progress sounds repetitive on the surface, but randomizing various key aspects changes things up enough to ensure the trip stays varied. Tongue-in-cheek humor with some of the weapons, but especially on literal objects such as the skill tree, help to dial down some of the frustrations of grabbing the occasional bad random scroll. All of this is packaged up in a sleek, cheap ($19.99) download and buttery-smooth, consistent frame rate that keeps the action going. Immortal Redneck is a good buy for those looking for a challenging arcade shooter that keeps things fresh.
If you're a fan of DOOM, Unreal Tournament and Quake, then Immortal Redneck will take you on a trip down memory lane with its mechanics peppered with Southern spice and a sprinkle of bullet mayhem.
Immortal Redneck is a blast of a game in a genre that we don't see enough of. It's not the first roguelike FPS that we've seen on PlayStation 4, and I wouldn't say it's the best, either. It does, however, have an exceptional aesthetic, clever level design, clean action, a decent difficulty curve, and plenty of longevity. A very worthy action game indeed.
However, buying enough stat boosts to really feel the impact takes a long time, and long runs that result in no meaningful progress frustrate. If you're looking for a solid, retro-influenced, first person shooter on Switch then this game is worth a look. Just be prepared to die and restart a lot.
If you're craving an undemanding shoot 'em up romp that has little time for niceties such as an actual narrative, Immortal Redneck's minimalist carnage just might do the trick.
Immortal Redneck works best as an occasional snack, or a palette cleanser, between heavier gaming meals. Playing for any length of time shows up its shortcomings, but in bite-sized pieces it's a good time. The game's humour is rank and dull, but it luckily doesn't detract from the rather pleasing colourful action the game provides.
Immortal Redneck has clear influences and it takes concepts from Rogue Legacy or Ziggurat, but Crema Games has created a solid and fun game where we can also shoot mummies in the face.

Overall, the design gymnastics Immortal Redneck puts itself through to blend free-form run and gun gameplay with unforgiving roguelike mechanics can be readily apparent sometimes. More often than not, though, it manages to stand up on its core combat loop. It's fun, it's fast - and that's kind of the only string to Immortal Redneck's banjo, for better or worse.
