“A satisfying bit of bone crunching fun, Redeemer brings some much welcomed innovation to a sometimes stale genre. A short run-time and a few technical hiccups are the only things holding the game back from greatness.”
It's a fun thrill ride while it lasts. Redeemer Enhanced Edition is kind of a one and done game and it’s not a very long one. Having said that, what you get in that one playthrough is some gripping action, solid gameplay, and a chance to team up with a buddy. There’s potentially the makings of an exciting new IP here and I just hope, if they ever do a Redeemer 2, it benefits from some of that potential.
Redeemer Enhanced Edition doesn't add much to the formula but it's still a pleasant way to change your mind with some funny violence. And a friend with you on the couch.

Redeemer: Enhanced Edition leaves mixed impressions. The developers tried to create a simple and fun cooperative beat 'em up, but a lot of technical problems, poor animation and boring boss fights prevent to get real pleasure from the gameplay. It may well appeal to fans of the genre, who will close their eyes to the shortcomings, but all the others are unlikely to be interested.

Redeemer's combat is world class; revealing itself to be both hugely satisfying and wonderfully tactile. It's just a shame that there isn't enough game built around it and that the game which is there, appears so very unambitious. Nonetheless, Redeemer is more than capable of providing a barrage of violent thrills for a good few hours all the same.
Redeemer: Enhanced Edition is a frustrating one for me because I would recommend it so much more if it didn’t have all the technical issues that it has. That said, there’s a promising game underneath all that and the game is satisfying enough to play that I would recommend it if you have a lot of patience and have the ability to see past a bunch of technical faults and glitches. It’s a game I don’t regret spending my time with and it’s a pretty competent top-down, twin-stick shooter all things considered. It gets a Thumb Culture Silver Award from me!
Way too simple, with a lot of storytelling and character development issues, Redeemer: Enhanced Edition can still deliver something positive with a fun, more complex but underexplored combat. It ends up being a poor execution even though it has the potential to be better.

There’s an attempt to divide skills between two different paths, but with such a barebones approach to stealth, you’ll often just run in, pull limbs off and start dealing death loudly. If these issues can be addressed then those looking for Mortal Kombat-levels of gore will slake their thirst for blood, but until then, its performance remains as battered as your unfortunate enemies.
Nothing from the weird upgrade change to the technical glitches stops Redeemer from being enjoyable. It’s a solid brawler that hits hard and delivers a fun action movie good time for a few hours.
