Top Critic Average
For as much as I loved Road Rash, it would be hard to go back to after playing Road Redemption. This feels like the worthy successor Road Rash has always deserved. It was a little gem of a series lost in time; the only thing missing is the corny FMV cutscenes.
It’s a shame that there isn’t an online community for matches as this would have carried the experience that much farther. But as it stands, there’s enough here to warrant a purchase if you’re looking for an ass-kicking good time on the couch.
Overall, Road Redemption is a brilliantly fun spiritual successor to the Road Rash series, and absolutely exceeded my expectations. Its exhilarating, and surprisingly tactical gameplay compensate for lackluster visuals and a few environmental collision issues. Road Redemption is an absolute blast to play, and I thoroughly recommend it.
Honestly, if you're a fan of Road Rash you really must check Road Redemption out. Fast, brutal and huge amounts of fun, it hits all the right notes to make it an unmissable slice of arcade racing with an abundance of combat.
A simple yet surprisingly fun motorcycle racer
When it all comes together, Road Redemption can offer some of the most thoroughly entertaining and over-the-top racing action you'll find on the Switch.
Road Redemption is a spiritual successor of Road Rash, but it fights with it's own merit and proves it is still fun to play this type of arcade style game, even now in 2018.
Road Redemption is an adrenaline-packed racing combat game that brings back the good old memories of the Road Rash days.
Mindless violence meets high speed racing in Road Redemption. Bashing opponents off of their bikes and blowing up villains feels great.
There’s a lot of fun to be had playing Road Redemption, with its satisfying racing, sweet combat, and variety of environments doing more than enough to keep you entertained throughout each race. Sure, it has its imperfections with the AI being a bit too clever and the collision-detection a bit off, but overall it gets more right than it does wrong. Unfortunately, the single player campaign holds it back a little with the repetitive nature of playing the same events over and over growing a bit wearing over time, but with individual events outside of the campaign and multiplayer on offer there’s plenty to keep you coming back for more. It might be far from perfect, but Road Redemption will certainly scratch that Road RASH itch (…I’ll grab my coat).
