Critic Reviews for Redeemer

The will is strong with Redeemer, but the flesh is spongy and bruised.

So overall, Redeemer is a bit of a dud. While it certainly has a good premise and delivers on its promise of blood and brutality, it just feels like the game came out of the oven too early. Hopefully after a few patches and some more polish, Sobaka Studio can iron out the bugs present and tighten up the flow to create a decent little brawler. Until then, give this a pass.

A game that held a lot of potential. Five or ten years ago, this game would have been an exceptional 2-player co-op brawler à la Gauntlet or Golden Axe. Today it's a forgettable, short distraction that you're unlikely to play through a second time.

Redeemer is a flawed title at best. It's a brawler at heart and succeeds on that line, offering visceral and often entertaining combat. However, the inclusion of cheap enemies and a hugely fluctuating difficulty curve makes for often irritating experiences in a number of levels. Though not a large concern for the genre, the story is a mess throwing in characters and concepts with no explanation.

Once the flash of executions, environment kills and the occasional stealth kill wear off, dispatching enemies becomes a chore.

Redeemer offers a very satisfying mix of good old top-down shooters and modern video games.

Any hey, any game that you can, mid-combo, rip the arm off a mutant and then proceed to beat it with severity (and a severed appendage) is worth checking out.
